Theme Song

Ever since watching Ally McBeal (TV show 1997-2002) and the episode where she had to find her theme song I often thing of what my theme song should be.  I can never settle on one song in paricular.  I like various genres of music from Melanie and James Taylor (folksy) to Pink.

I do have a favorite album though - it's August and Everything After by the Counting Crows.  This is the album that I listen to for every road trip.  I listened to it on the drive to Sebring, and then on the way to work for the entire next week (sort of got hooked again). I've got links to it on my facebook page.  I even lost the CD once, and went out and bought another so that I would have it for a road trip.

Am I weird ? or do others have a favorite album that then can play over and over again.

Growing up I had several faves - Jesus Christ Superstar and Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack, and then of course there was the Melanie Candles in the Rain Album.  I played those over and over and over again.  I'm surprised Mom and Dad didn't go crazy - I still know all the words to them.


Howard amd Martha Finally

I've been a Sirius subscriber since Howard Stern moved to Sirius, but when we bought the GM Car last year, it came with XM.  We didn't want to run the wiring for the Sirius receiver, and were hoping that since XM and Sirius merged they'd come up with some sort of plan to get the best of both worlds.

Well ... they did.  XM now offers a plan with the "Best of Sirius" which includes Martha Stewart and Howard Stern, and Sirius offers the "Best of XM" which gives you Oprah. (thats the edited version you get more but it's not my focus).  Yesterday, I renewed XM with the Best of option, so now I get Howard Stern and Martha Stewart again.  Worth every penny.  I also can get the stations over the internet, so I can listen while at work.

This just makes my day.  I am a happy camper.


Pick the State Song

For those that live in Florida, there are three songs that are finalists for our state song.  You can go to this site and click the link to hear the songs, view the lyrics, and vote.  Amazingly only about 5000 people have voted out of our 18 million residents.  I myself didn't even know this was going on until I read about it in the newspaper.  Voting ends January 10th, so do it now while you're thinking about it.  The winner of the competition will be announced on Jan. 11, 2008, at the FMEA convention in Tampa.

I listened to them several times until one kindof grew on me.  So I've voted.  Go have a listen.
