the music of your life
For my last GDT page for the All About Me blog, the challenge this week is This is the Soundtrack of My Life. Sounds like a good one, doesn't it?! Music is a powerful means of communication and has the power to cause emotions to well up within us. The emotional response can be varied: happiness, sadness, nostalgia, peacefulness, energy, festivity. This challenge is all about thinking of music that has been an important part of your life, your “soundtrack.” What speaks to you in a special way?
I chose the song Hanging By a Moment by Lifehouse. When my now husband and I started dating, that song was popular on the radio. And, because we worked at a radio station, my darling hubby (being in the production side of the biz), had access to songs before almost everyone else did.
One day, I came back to my cubicle and there lay a cassette tape (I know, ancient right?!) with a sticky note on it telling me to play it. It was a copy of a new song about to hit the radio: Hanging By a Moment by Lifehouse. To this day, we both still stop and listen if we hear the song.
And doesn't that song title make for a great title on a layout?! Love it!
Hope you find time to play along with us over at All About Me. I really enjoyed my guest design team member time over there this month. And I plan to play along now that the time has ended. (Thanks, Melissa!!!)
Here is the song if you need a refresher or want to hear it.
