Waltz With Me

It’s too bad, you’ve probably heard over and over again, that real life doesn’t have a soundtrack.

Who wouldn’t like to have a Pop tunes soaring around you on the good days, the Blues to accompany you on the hard days and a little Mozart playing in the background ( Or ELO, but that’s just me ) the rest of the time.

The thing of it is, when I was  a kid I did have a theme song.

I sang it on the way to school in the mornings, I sang it when I was learning to ride a two wheel bike and I sang it when I crashed it or fell out of the trees I liked to climb or when I was bored or waiting for my family to get to where we were going on car rides.

My Australian friends  consider this song their Unofficial Anthem, but I consider it my theme song and one day when I am being sent off into the great beyond I want it played at my funeral.

Just show up graveside, sing it and go.

So here it is- three different versions of ” Waltzing Matilda “but the soul of that song is in each one, so really they’re the same.

Somewhere in me, I suppose is that same spirit- at least I hope so.

One thought on “Waltz With Me

  1. You will not be surprised! I cried! I got VERY emotional seeing these fabulous clips! If I were anywhere in the world and heard Waltzing Matilda played I would cry! If they played it for me to recognize an achievement I would be a blubbering mess!I do not know the full lyrics of Advance Australia Fair but I KNOW every word of Waltzing Matilda! It should have been our National Anthem! It is my Anthem!
