The History of Me, in Music

So the other day the brilliant Joanna from asked me if I wanted to do a post about MUSIC and me. I thought it was going to be easy since I love music and not a day goes by that I am not singing at the top of my lungs ( off key ) but that isn't the point. Music has been a big part of my life from the time I was a baby. When I was little I would watch my mom getting ready to go out and dancing in the house to music. I had the coolest little record player that you could take everywhere with you.

I would go to the record store and loved flipping through all the records and finding that special one I had to have. Buying blank tapes by the dozens and recording music off the radio then pausing rewinding and listening to songs over & over until I got the words right. I even went fancy & got a system that I used to scratch records because I thought I was a DJ. Music tells a story about what is going on at that time in history or in a persons life. Well at least good music. Music has mended my heart, told me I was a survivor, made me drop it likes it hot, let me know that everything was going to be all right. Trying to come up with a handful of songs is impossible because that is like choosing one kid over the other. But that said I was able to pick some songs that tell you a little about what goes on in my head. Now remember I was born in the 70's, grew up in the 80's, was raised by MTV who changed the music game got attacked by the Boy Bands and lived through Gangsta Rap to talk about it. I love all types of music Hip Hop, Rap, Pop, R & B, Country, Blues, Rock, Heavy Metal you name it I love it. 

So this is a tad bit of my LIFE IN MUSIC

Bet you can't name just 1 song about your life and what songs remind you of all your awesomeness ?
