Tunesday Tuesday: My Anthem

Tunesday Tuesday: My Anthem


Guess what I haven't done in a really long time...a link up!

I was so excited about this link up because it's all about MUSIC! If you don't know by now, music is so influential to me, I tattoo it on my body. 

So link up! And the theme this week...YOUR ANTHEM! 

Guess what I picked...



We all need a little music in our lives. A good song can answer a question, soothe the soul and provide an escape. It can recall a memory in the most vivid detail and evoke the most intense feelings.

 “Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.” -Sarah Dessen

We created Tunesday Tuesday to do just that, bring people together through music.

Every Monday night at 9pm the link up will go live at The Patchwork Paisley, Drinking the Whole Bottle, Momma Candy, and MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter. We will designate a theme, and hope that you will share a song that embodies said theme for you. Post the video for the song, an audio clip, the lyrics- however you want to do it. Then, write a little something about why this song captures the week's theme and link up your post here with us! 

Visit your hosts after 9pm (EST) on Monday nights
 to find out what the theme is for the week!

Rules?
It would be awesome if you would follow your lovely hostesses (links below,) but other than that- let's have fun with this! Know a fellow music lover who should get in on the party? Let them know about it! Want to share you groove with the world? Tweet it should you feel so inclined. Want to grab a button? Go for it. It's really pretty and you'll find it down below.

WEEK ONE: ANTHEM





Livin' on a Prayer by Bon Jovi.

See that guy up there? That's basically me when this song comes on.

Anyone who knows me knows this would be a front runner for my anthem. I'm indecisive with too much choice and music and choosing the one song that encompasses me is difficult. As my life has changed so has my anthem. So I resorted to my playlist to see if it would inspire a Yeah! That's the one!

There were many I considered. And there was a first runner up. But it was settled as soon as I saw it. Livin' on the Prayer makes me want to stand up and scream the song at the top of my lungs and dance like a crazy person. And I've done just that with my fist thrown in the air. It didn't matter what stage of life I was in, what tragedy was ailing me, what life event was around the corner, ten years ago at a best friend's wedding when we all put our hands in the middle and shouted this song on the dance floor it was with me. And a few months ago when this song was shuffled into play mode on my playlist while I was cleaning the living room, it was with me. 

And the words?

We've got to hold on to what we've got 
'Cause it doesn't make a difference 
If we make it or not 
We've got each other and that's a lot 
For love - we'll give it a shot 

Whooah, we're half way there 
Livin' on a prayer 
Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear 
Livin' on a prayer

I mean, seriously. Who doesn't relate to that?

So, what's your anthem?

  1. Love, love, Bon Jovi! The song that gets me to acting like a 80's freak is Wanted Dead or Alive! Seriously! I totally become Richie Sambora during the second verse and the electric guitar comes in! I'm screaming to the top of my lungs like I'm live in concert! It's the best feeling ever. . .only music can do that over and over again. A great link up and that video will keep a smile on my face all day! ;-)
