A Change in Taste
Garden Magic . . . or No Reservation Required

The Soundtrack . . . of My JOURNEY

Back in July, the One Little Word prompt involved creating a playlist inspired by your word.  


But you know that when the truth is told . . . 
that you can get what you want or you can just get old. . . 
when will you realize . . . Vienna waits for you!
---- from Vienna, Billy Joel


As you might imagine, this was an assignment close to my heart!

The original prompt involved coming up with 9 songs.  I limited myself to 50.  (Ahem.)

Songs about travel.

Songs about being lost.

Songs about finding yourself.

Songs about discovery.

Songs I just happen to like -- that speak to me about JOURNEY.


I know I'm searching for something
Something so undefined
That it can only be seen
By the eyes of the blind
In the middle of the night. . . 
---- from River of Dreams, Billy Joel

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons

I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the great beyond
---- from The Great Beyond, REM


Jump in, let's go
Lay back, enjoy the show
These are the days when anything goes!
---- from Every Day is a Winding Road, Sheryl Crow


The sky was the limit . . . 
The future was wide open!
---- from Into the Great Wide Open, Tom Petty


I want to tear down walls
that hold me inside
I want to reach out
and touch the flame. . .
---- from Where the Streets Have No Name, U2


You better lose yourself in the music, the moment. . . 
You own it, you better never let it go. . . 
You only get one shot, do not miss your chace
to blow . . . this opportunity comes once in a lifetime. . . 
---- from Lose Yourself, Eminem


So I would say you've got a part. . . 
What's your part?
Who you are, you are who, who your are . . . 
---- from Who You Are, Pearl Jam


She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's time to change . . . 
---- from Drops of Jupiter, Train


We're just ordinary people, you and me. . . 
Time will turn us into statues, eventually . . . 
---- from Statues, Foo Fighters
