If your blog had a theme song

…what would it be?

Not your LIFE – that’s different.  ( Although in the case of some folks, perhaps not.) But, those of us who blog tend to develop a certain voice, a certain tone to our writing, no? I think we do.

Some do it consciously and others just fall into it, but it’s inevitable.  The writing, the design, the pace – it all creates a vibe.  When I land on the blogs that I read routinely, I know the feeling I’m likely to get while I’m there.

And, y’know – “feelings”…”music”.  It’s not so far to jump, right?  Here’s a few of mine.  This is how I see:

Music Savvy Mom (My refuge.  Here.  With you guys.  Naturally, I couldn’t pick just one here.):

Jackson Browne – Rock Me on the Water

The Music Mamas (Talking music – with my buds):

Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young – Our House

I was going to explain the reasoning  behind my choices initially, but then I thought – nah.  If I’m doing it right, then they’ll understand my picks. (Especially if you listen to the lyrics. 😉)

So, now it’s your turn!  Put your “blog theme song” in the comments, with a link to your blog, of course.  Then we can all have fun blog-hopping and seeing if we “get” your choice!

    To get why this this is my blog’s theme song, it is important to know my blogging history. I’ve been doing this for about five years, but I was constantly changing sites and themes. I was driving myself INSANE. I was also feeling really negative about trying to be a personal finance blogger because it wasn’t what I wanted to write about anymore. I already owned my name as my domain and I had used it solely as a landing page for the other domains. Then, I figured that I would only be limited by my name. It’s a lot easier that way.

    My theme song is my second favorite song of all time: Madonna’s Like a Prayer

    My blog is Drawn To The Flame (drawntotheflame.blogspot.com). The title comes from lyrics from Distant Sun by Crowded House. There is no music more huge to me than anything Finn. I LOVE Neil Finn (met him this weekend!) and I knew I needed some of his lyrics to sum up my blog. I first thought of “Muddle of Nervous Words” but ultimately decided on Drawn…

    I am currently starting a book blog called Perfect Opening Line, which is a reference to the Frames…

    I don’t blog… however, if I were to, the theme song would probably be a song from a cartoon television show… y’know something with no lyrics, but fun and inviting and perhaps a bit silly and nonsensical and, of course, still good music… a la Angry Beavers theme song

    Your choices are nice Ri… I totally thought you’d do Teach your Children for Chasin Liam… I was pretty close!

    My blog’s song would be “Undun” by the Guess Who. That’s the song that I keep coming back to, over & over & over again.

    Hmm… Auntii Rii, you make me think hard (ouch that hurts!). But after countless days of pondering, yes days, I have come up with a solution!
    Even though I have slacked on posting, last post was a little over a month ago, Forgive me for i have sinned! (college sucks!) I was just scanning “Cassettes & Cigarettes,” and updating settings…

    Theme Song: “Crossfire” by Brandon Flowers
