My Theme Songs

Last week, JJ aka The Blah Blah Blahger did a post about theme songs.  She talked about Ally McBeal (and I’m the random one) and Michael Bublé.  I have many songs that make me remember a special time or a special place in my life.  I can’t hear AC/DC’s “Back in Black” without thinking of being a freshman in college, red plastic cups, and dancing at Kappa Sigma parties.  I hear John Michael Montgomery’s “I Can Love You Like That” and think of when Angry Husband was in the Marines and deployed overseas.  I’m a secret sap, I swear.  When I want to be inspired, I listen to Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” and sing along.

But lately, I need something upbeat that I can sing along too.  If I’m by myself, the Glee Soundtracks are on. If Angry Kid is in the car, he screams for me to put on Shop Boyz’s “Party Like A Rockstar”.  If I have to hear that song one more time… I used to run to it, not so much anymore.

These are my TOP 4 songs right now.  I’m pretty much obsessed with them. I will listen to them, over and over.  I have all four of them as my ringtones.  I admit it. Yes, I’m 34 years old, and listen to this type of music.

1.  Lady GaGa “Paparazzi” -Angry Kid even loves this song. He screamed for me to play it in the car the other day. My mom was with us too. She was cracking up, because Angry Kid was dancing along with the music in his carseat.

2.  Ke$ha “TiK ToK”-I heard this song on a TV show or something. I searched everywhere for it. Silly me, it was on iTunes Top Ten list of the week when I bought it a few weeks ago.

3.  Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feeling”-This song is the song in the commercial for the movie “Valentine’s Day”.  I did not know it was Black Eyed Peas.  I had to Google it. I’m a smart one, ya know.

4.  Miley Cyrus “Party In The USA”-I do not have a girl child. I’m late to the game.  We were dancing the night away at Blissdom. And then, this song came on…I feel in love instantly! I felt like such a dork asking someone who sang it.  I was in a group of moms, mom bloggers even worse. They just shook their heads at me.

And because you must see the fabulousness of Miley singing “Party in the USA”. Here’s a video of her singing it. This is from the 2009 Teen Choice Awards, where she is allegedly “pole dancing”. Yea, ok…it’s an ice cream cart. I think I need to dance more though; did you see how fit her back-up dancers are? Seriously!

I love this! There are so many times when I feel silly for singing songs that pre-teenage girls are rocking out to while having sleepovers. I don't mind though, a good song is a good song, right? :D

I love all those songs! I know, my siblings tell me not to listen to Miley but you do get sucked in by her songs!

Miley Cyrus? Really Julie? No. No. No. TM loves Lady Gaga. Bram, not so much.

I might have to do this too. I have a ton of theme songs though so I'll have to narrow it down! I admitted to liking a Miley song on my blog too. :) Love these songs especially Beautiful and Paparazzi.

Obviously I agree with the Black Eyed Peas choice. I mean, sure Fergie's hot, but that girl's got some LUNGS! Which leads me to my girl Hannah, er Miley. I defy any man, woman, or child to listen to that song without nodding their head like yeah, movin their hips like yeah. It simply can't be done.

TIK TOK is my party song right now, too!!! LOVE it. And I can't believe you're insinuating that I'm random...AGAIN. Ha!

Why am I not surprised by any of those songs. I'm more partial to the AC/DC than the Miley, but dude! I hear you on that freakin Ke$ha song. Any song that references brushing teeth with a bottle of Jack is right up my alley.

Love the Miley song. I think you, me & my 4 year old would get along GREAT in the music dept. And don't you hate when you love a song, but over play it while working out or b/c of kids? The once great song is no longer so great.
