This is your life
by Turtle Jones

Today is another day that Turtle and I are kind of busy. But we never want to leave you without something fresh here. So today we just offer you a Question of the Day (which might be a future recurring thing). What's your theme song? What song defines you or your life or your outlook or would be played as your entrance theme if you were a WWF superstar? You know what we mean. What's your song?

Here is ours.


I have no clue why this song calls me. Maybe because it so defines me. Maybe cause the video (yes, there is a video) of them getting swept up in the desert heat and wind against their faces as they just kept playing. Sand in their faces and they just kept going. The evil power made them do this and it still makes me do this. The call to ask it all to stop but the power that makes you continue. You all have felt it. And you know how it feels. It feels good. And you will keep going.

The evil power of rock and roll. - T


I'll share a secret with you. I really do have a theme song. It plays in my head every day as soon as I get out of bed. I get up. Look in the mirror. Point and wink. And sing this to myself. Really, it should be playing all the time. I should carry a little cassette recorder around with me and just press "play" every time I enter a room. Because I like to make an entrance. In fact, when I meet turtle at the airport on Tuesday night, the first thing I'm going to say to him is:

Here I am. Rock you like a hurricane - M

These are the songs that we think are our own theme songs. It took up a bit of time to think of them and we both got headaches, but as always at FTTW, we got them out. Just think about what you would like playing as you walk into the forest of the unknown(?) and tell us yours. No explanation is needed.

Just what you want as your theme song.

So what is it?


My theme song is 'Here I go Again' by Whitesnake (the s/t album version)


freak magnet - L7

just kiddin'

why don't we do it in the road -- the beatles


Theme from Peter Gunn


oh yea and btw

It plays in my head every day as soon as I get out of bed. I get up. Look in the mirror. Point and wink.



Transmetropolitan - The Pogues

I'll upload a link as soon as I get home....


I haven't given it much thought, honestly. I have given theme songs to objects before, usually cars. My old 1965 Ford Custom 500's theme song was Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way?"

I guess, to think of one off the top of my head, I'd probably say the instrumental "Stream of Consciousness" by Dream Theater. It's both how I like to approach certain aspects of life and it's eclectic use of different musical styles matches my eclectic musical taste.

And Blag Flag's "Rise Above" when I'm pissed off.


Ani Difranco's Joyful Girl - I've had a tattoo of the title for almost 10 years now and it still means as much - if not exactly the same - as it did the day I got it.


Mannish Boy - Muddy Waters.


I gotta go with B.O.C. - Veteran Of The Psychic Wars


Social Distortion's "Born to Lose"


Ani DiFranco's 32 Flavors or Garbage's Supervixen. Depends on my mood. 32 Flavors generally wins.


i had to think on this for a bit....eventually, it just came down to what made me feel like me, and what words sounded right. that said, i'm gonna go with nick cave & the bad seeds thirsty dog.


When I got married for the second time many years ago, I had my friend, the wonderful blues guitarist Andy Pitt, play the Rolling Stones' "Prodigal Son" as I strolled down the aisle. At my best, that is the way I try to stroll through life. At my very best, my theme is Funkadelic's "One Nation Under A Groove." On the too many days on which I am not my best, song fragments explode like shrapnel all around me; I try to duck and cover until a decent song coheres with my marching orders for the moment.
