A moment ago I was on Facebook (aka the ultimate slacker tool) and as I clicked on different pages I liked… “using your cellphone as a flashlight” and “don’t’ talk to me before my coffee” I clicked on one I really liked.
And let’s think about that for a moment. Sometimes I really do pretend there is background music playing during certain moments in my day. Ok, maybe not epic per say, but they are definitely moments that have significance. Honestly? None of the moments are epic. But pretending there is background music during these moments, makes them almost epic.
For example.. when I drive to work I listen to my ipod via my car stereo. Sometimes really cool 80’s tunes come on. And as I drive (or sit in traffic – which is more often the case) the song “In The Air Tonight” comes on and I chill back in my seat a tad as my hand drapes over the steering wheel. I am “uber cool” in that moment. Dark sunglasses and a white blazer are the only things that would cement my coolness.
Even better? Driving a car that isn’t a ’99 Pontiac that no longer has working heat. But I digress.
And then… I am walking down the cereal aisle of the supermarket, about to decide between Apple Jacks and Lucky Charms for my daughter. I suddenly go into to slow motion as my head turns (in a most sexy way) and bam! “Still of the Night” bellows.
You get the gist. Non-epic moments in my life made epic just by adding a killer background track.
Maybe you have a song or two that plays (or you wish played) during some moments in your life. Care to share?
