Blame Roda for this. Apparently my new nickname is Super D and I have to select my theme song this morning (see comments on part seven of the B&W challenge if you are new to this conversation and therefore totally mystified).
If I don’t choose then Roda will pick one for me. I love Roda but I know her sense of humour….
Well I’m not going to make it that easy so I’m just going to give a list of options from which you lot can choose. Feel free to conspire talk among yourselves and please vote in the comments.
I suspect I’m only allowed to include upbeat songs so I’m going to leave out Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ and any version of ‘Hurt’ by NIN…
I am also going to exclude Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive”, firstly because it is too obvious but mostly because I once rewrote the lyrics into an extremely naughty version for some colleagues who wanted to perform it at a work Christmas party and this is the version I hear in my head whenever I think about this song now. (I never actually go to these parties but I do often provide funny posters, satirical lyrics for party game songs and even special effects with dry-ice etc)
Anyway – to the list:
“Always look on the bright side of life” – The Monty Python team*
“Great Things” by Echobelly
“Alright” by Supergrass
“Where is my mind” by Pixies (sorry – couldn’t resist this)
“Smells like Teen Spirit” Nirvana (Couldn’t resist this either)
“Shine on You Crazy Diamond” Pink Floyd
You have until Monday to put your vote in the comments. In the event of a tie or no votes then Roda gets to choose. Yes – I do have a preference but I’m not telling!
*Susan’s uncle Donny had this played at his funeral. Everyone cracked up. The man was class. Despite the 40 year age gap he and I got on well. I always remember he and I were among the last people left at the end of one family wedding. He pointed out that most people were driving and therefore there were lots of still half-full bottles of champagne on the other tables. We didn’t let them go to waste…
