Got the Music in Me

Okay, here is a fun music related meme!

Music of Your Life Meme

Representing every 5th year of your life, starting at birth, pick a song title and artist (if you can remember it), and end with a song for now.

Birth  -  'Close To You' by The Carpenters.  This was my parents favorite song the year they were married, and at the time I was conceived and born!

5  years old  -  'Only You' by The Platters, all my cousins had brothers or sisters, and I wanted one so badly!  It wasn't meant to be until Kathy moved in when I was 17!

10 years old  -  'Goody Two Shoes' by Adam Ant.  I was a straight A student, and multiple teacher's pet.  I never got in trouble.  Say no more, right?  LOL

15 years old  -  'Is This Love' by Whitesnake - boyfriends, crushes, hormones gone wild, and teen angst.  Glad that's over!  Well, the hormones are still wacky... lol

20 years old - 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' by Cyndi Lauper.  It was party time, college and work, too, but lots of partying with my friends!!!!  Kathy and the whole theater crew... oh yeah, it was the mid 80's, and we were Invincible (Pat Benatar).  LOL  Do you like how I got a second song in there?

25 years old - 'Goin to the Chapel of Love' by the Dixie Cups.  I got married at 25, just 13 days before my 26th birthday, so my whole year was planning my wedding!  It was a great year!

30 years old - 'Love and Marriage' by Frank Sinatra.  I had two toddlers and was pregnant with my third during the second half of my 30th year!!!  It was a crazy but joyful time!

35 years old  -  'Keeping the Faith' by Billy Joel.  Still busy with the kids, homeschooling Hammer, married almost 10 years... a wonderful time, until 9/11 hit, later that year.

40 years old  -  'Time in a Bottle'  by Jim Croce.  This is my wedding song, but the words mean so much more at this time in my life!  Married for 15 years during my 40th year, and looking back, you realize so much has gone past you, so very fast.  No babies left now and heading into the teen years.

Now  - 'Still the One' by Orleans.  It says everything I would want to say.  I am happy, love Hubby more than ever, love my life with the kids!

Here are the lyrics:

STILL THE ONE (Orleans)

We've been together since way back when
Sometimes I never want to see you again
But I want you to know, after all these years
You're still the one I want whisperin' in my ear

You're still the one I want to talk to in bed
Still the one that turns my head
We're still having fun, and you're still the one

I looked at your face every day
But I never saw it 'til I went away
When winter came, I just wanted to go
Deep in the desert, I longed for the snow

You're still the one that makes me laugh
Still the one that's my better half
We're still having fun, and you're still the one

You're still the one that makes me strong
Still the one I want to take along
We're still having fun, and you're still the one

Changing, our love is going gold
Even though we grow old, it grows new

You're still the one that I love to touch
Still the one and I can't get enough
We're still having fun, and you're still the one

You're still the one who can scratch my itch
Still the one and I wouldn't switch
We're still having fun, and you're still the one

You are still the one that makes me shout
Still the one that I dream about
We're still having fun, and you're still the one...

   *********************************************************

I hope you all play along... it was mad fun!

be well
Dawn
