My New Theme Song

I told the girls the other day that we need a theme song - something we can listen to that will make us feel good when we need it. I've had two previous theme songs in my life:

1. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer when I was 30 (thankfully, not a fully correct diagnosis). My theme song was Tub Thumping by Chumbawamba. The chorus: "I get knocked down
But I get up again. You're never going to keep me down
" It worked.

2. I was diagnosed with a brain tumor in my late 30s. Again, it wasn't exactly that but we didn't know that for quite a while. I picked the song Trouble by the Indigo Girls. "Get to the point of it; get to the sense of it; I'm in a hurry to get through it." I felt that was right. I was definitely in trouble.

So now we need a new theme song. The girls picked Lady Gaga's Born This Way.

"Don't hide yourself in regret,
Just love yourself and you're set
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way
(Born this way) "

I think it's okay. I'm not against it. I'm just not sure I'm for it. And I'm slightly concerned that this is what they pick.

Our other choice? Praan by Gary Schyman. It's sung in Sri Lankan and we have no idea what it says. But it sounds pretty. Pretty is good.

    Here you go:
    It reminds me of Carl Sagan's "we are star-stuff".
