Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Life’s Soundtrack

stream-of-consciousness-sundayHere is my 5 minute brain dump as part of this great series. Here goes …

I dislike silence. I always have. I have a terrible habit of killing songs too.

I listen to the same song on repeat until they make my skin crawl. Some say this is a Leo trait.

I can’t say I have a particular type of music I love – I can tell you what I don’t like though!

After whiling away precious quiet time on YouTube today I found myself watching my favourite clips from the Moulin Rouge musical.

I can’t tell you how many times I watched the movie.  I love it.

So, I’m sharing one of my favourite scenes:

I sometimes wish my life was a musical – how sad is that? (There I said it and I guess I’ll click publish too.)

Then I feel sad that I really can’t sing for love or for money … I feel sad for BiP who clearly doesn’t know any better when she claps her hands in delight when I sing.

Now with Spotify I guess it can – except all my friends on Facebook will know about it.

So, if you are my friend on Facebook and see me listening to the Moulin Rouge soundtrack for the millionth time you can only guess as to whether I am swanning around in a corset and gown …

Does your life have a soundtrack? What does it sound like?

    I have 2 boys so now I LOVE silence whenever I get to experience it.

    I am a silence lover… but it is sort of an acquired love. My soundtrack, how nerdy can I be… is more likely classical or instrumental these days just because I find it easier to right to although the latest red hot chili pepper song has me chair dancing a lot while I drive…

    great to find you via #SOCSunday.

      Thanks for stopping by! I can’t do silence unless I really have to concentrate on something …

        I can only imagine that is a rarity!

    I love music. But I also love quiet. I can’t stand “noise.” I usually like to have music when I’m cleaning or driving but at home, I’m perfectly content with silence (if I can get it). Maybe it’s because I grew up in a really noisy home.

    BTW, I LOVE the soundtrack from Moulin Rouge. Ewan MacGregor’s voice is just dreamy to me.

    I love that film, too and yes, I’d love my life to be a musical. I love the oldies, too – singing in the rain, anyone? Love Gene Kelly 🙂

    The soundtrack to my pregnancy was Deva Premal. So much so that DD’s middle name is Deva!
