Here are all the tunes I have used so far in my blog posts. I like to think if there is a heaven or afterlife, there might be comment cards available to fill out regarding our experience here on Earth that include a space for suggestions. My big suggestion is that each life should get to have it’s own soundtrack. Who wouldn’t love to have a theme song, love song, fight song, etc. play when the appropriate moment arrives. Music makes the world move, in the body and the soul. Imagine your own life score, is that not awesome?

My hope is, ideally, when you read a post, the corresponding track is meant to play. The links are highlighted and underlined in the text. I realize the YouTube link idea has it’s flaws SO if you would be willing to indulge me, call it a favor, because I bet you have more than one device on your person, read with one and play the music on the other. Because I created it that way, to get the full Monty effect, that’s how it’s meant to be done. Just try it….
