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.
