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
