I just finished listening to another fascinating program from Bob Edwards. In this one, he interviewed Dr Daniel Levitin – neuroscientist and author of This is Your Brain on Music and The World in Six Songs.
I haven’t read either of these books (YET!). The interview did get me thinking about which six songs I’d pick to describe my life.
Since I’m making up this game, I get to make up the rules. I’m going to try to think of six songs that chronologically describe where I’ve been, where I am and where I hope I’m going. You can play, too!
years 1-10 ~ Don’ Worry, Be Happy / Bobby McFerrin
years 11-20 ~ Where You Lead / Carole King
years 21 – 30 ~ A Case of You/ Joni Mitchell
years 31 – 40 ~ Somewhere Over the Rainbow / Eva Cassidy
years 41 – 50 ~ In Spite of Ourselves/ John Prine & Iris DeMent
years 51 … ~ The Secret o’Life / James Taylor
THAT WAS FUN! Next? What six songs describe your life?
