Music! Music! Music!

If your life were a movie, what would its soundtrack be like? What songs, instrumental pieces, and other sound effects would be featured on the official soundtrack album?


Hoo boy.

Well, the first thing that comes to mind is a circus calliope.

Then Tchaikowsky’s 6th.

Then the whole body of sacred music, running the gamut from classical to southern gospel, but not including contemporary.

Songs?  Amazing Grace. How Great Thou Art.  How Beautiful Heaven Must Be.  Going from the sublime to the more earthly, Tchaikowsky’s Sixth Symphony, almost anything else he penned; Rachmaninoff, Mahler. and Vivaldi. I love big music, and I love Bach and Beethoven too.  And Mannheim.

Pretty eclectic, I guess.

Instruments?  Piano, trumpets, violins. And cymbals.

Sound effects?  Thunder, wind, the ocean, birds.

Anyone want to try composing my life in music?
