I thought this was going to be difficult, turns out, it wasn't :)
The first song is Heart of Gold by Neil Young. I couldn't tell you what it is, but that song reaches into the depths of me unlike any other piece of music i've ever heard. It's so powerful it almost makes me want to cry. I'm always compelled to just close my eyes and take it in. I rarely seek the song out but instead relish when I hear it.
Second song is I'm so Paid by Akon. This song was the reason I called someone for the very first time many years ago, "to find out what the name of it was". The receiver of that call will forever be a great love, Akon will ALWAYS be "our" thing.
Third song is Tonight is the Night by Outasight. This was my anthem for my birthday a few years ago. It was never a big hit but boy does it make me feel good and just want to party!
Last song is I'm In Love by Alex Gaudino. This song is the song I imagine playing at my wedding, the song that will be playing when me and my husband are announced at the start of the reception, and plays as we enter the room. It screams I'm in love in the most excited way and it's how I want everyone to feel as I step into the world with my partner.

My number one song for the soundtrack of my life would be "These are the Days" by 10,000 Maniacs. This song reminds me to live in the moment, to relish in the time at hand & enjoy life. Life can be so hectic & one can forget laugh. My second song would be "Simple Man" by Lynyrd Skynrd. This is a song I dedicate to my boys so that they remember to live life slowly and be kind. My third song is "Breathe" by Anna Nalick. I think this one is self-explanatory; just remember to breathe.

My 50's songs come from Dion and the Belmonts. That's My Desire, Teenager in Love ,and the Everly brothers ,Till i Kissed you. Now over fifty years latter i enjoy Alternative music like Cage the Elephant and Magic Dragon's.I am still open to all music depending on my moods and activities. At 78 I'm very active and love going to breweries and wineries to enjoy the liquid refreshment and local musical talent and being with friends and meeting new people. I have never meet a stranger.

A soundtrack to my life. Now that's an exciting playlist. My music taste and connections before I was 12 consisted of various Disney Channel and Nickelodeon songs; Hannah Montana being my favorite. Then, 2012 brought my generation's version of NSYNC and Back Street Boys; only we called them One Direction. Harry Styles was my Justin Timberlake. The song, "Story of My Life" was and still is, my favorite 1D song, but I didn't understand why until I was a little bit older. Just hearing the chorus, you think it's another sappy, boy band love song, but there's more to it. What I get from it is a wanting to be free and to change, but being afraid to, "Leave my heart open, but it stays right here in its cage". I understood why I related to this song after a heard "Little Me" by Little Mix when I was fifteen. A song about a girl who is too timid and shy to speak up even though she knows she has the voice to do so. This is something I've struggled with most of my life but only realized it recently. My life isn't always about my struggles of being heard; Big Time Rush's "Boyfriend" and "Worldwide" are why my expectations of relationships are so high, and Demi Lovato's "You Don't do it for Me Anymore" helps when said relationships didn't work out.

The Best Life: it is the best life!
I Drove All Night: I would have driven all night to get to my late husband.

Songs of my life? I think that changes as we live life. Today I would have to say one that fits my life would be The Dance, by Garth Brooks. Would I choose to go the ups and downs of my life in advance? Never! But then I would have missed the dance.
Another song that fits for me is Jesus Take the Wheel sung by Carrie Underwood. At times it seems all I can do is hold on and pray I get from where I was to where I am.
Sawyer Brown's The Walk fits the paths we take with our loved ones. Sending our children off to school and helping our grandparents live their last years before their lives are done.
Time of My Life sung by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes ties it all up. No explanations needed. Life is good.

As an only child who moved every 6-9 months, I was always the new kid, so it seemed like "Solitaire" was the theme song of my childhood, "while life goes on around ... everywhere". I spent my late teens and twenties trying to find my voice and my place in life, and sometimes felt like shouting "I am, I said". I also realized that life is too short not to "Stop and Smell the Roses" along the way. In my thirties and forties, I contemplated all the things I wanted to experience and began to recognize the time I had wasted, as expressed in "Time in a Bottle" - "there never seems to be enough time to do the things you want to do once you find them". Older and wiser, and after losing friends and family members along the way, I also value the sentiments expressed in "Seasons in the Sun" - "we had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun, but the hills that we climbed were just seasons out of time".
