What Is Your Theme Song?
It’s been a while since we did this one, so let’s make it fresh with categories. What is your theme song?
My Theme Song: This Is Me - Stevie Nicks Landslide
This song makes me cry every time. I understand that it was written for her father and while I had an occasionally fraught relationship with Pater Julien, that is not why it means so much to me. It all comes down to the chorus and I’d tell you more about that, but I made a major tactical error by listening to it as I type and I can’t really see the keyboard any more.

My Theme Song: 85 Miles an Hour - Jane’s Addiction Been Caught Stealing
For days when I want to go fast, although Living Color’s Love Rears Its Ugly Head is a close second.
My Theme Song: Let’s Get Loud - Judy Garland The Man That Got Away
The more honest version of this category is “Joy in the Kitchen” because that’s where I do my loudest, most exuberant singing. If I really want to go to the top of my lungs, it’s this song: One of the world’s best singers in one of her best performances. She’s going along and, ya, it’s good, she’s sustaining it, it’s lovely, you can see she’s good, but then, THEN, Judy opens the throttle and the whole thing goes from your morning commute to Formula One. Amazing. Also? Get. Off. My. Lawn.
