Soundtrack to My Life

On one of our many family road trips, my sister and I were discussing music we love and eventually ended up getting a little morbid. We decided that we would keep a list of music we love so when we pass away, a cd would be made with the music we love and given away at our funeral. Kind of like a party favor, I guess! LOL Ok, I have to say we are weird, but we meant this as a very beautiful gift. It would be a great way to remember us by the music we loved. The soundtrack to our lives, because we all wish our lives were a movie and had a musical score.

I have yet to sit down and write down some of my favorite songs, but I always catch myself listening to a song and thinking would I include this in the soundtrack to my life???

I decided to write down songs that would make it on the soundtrack to my life. The only one I am for sure has the proper ranking is my #1 song because it is a badass song! All the other ones are listed in random order. I am sure the list will change with time, and I figure this will be a great way to keep up with it. I will be able to see the changes in my musical preferences and how my life influences that.

Most of these songs are not only a favorite song but are meaningful to me. FYI, this took me a whole month and I am still not done completing the list. Also, if you would like to listen to the song, just click on the song title and it will take you to the youtube video or you can go to this youtube playlist I have made that includes all songs + the contenders.
