Your Theme Song

Throughout my life there have been songs where I've said "That is/could be my theme song".........listening to one of Mark's CDs today, this one's my latest:



What are/were yours?

Most recently, this from Arthur Sullivan's Haddon Hall with the refrain:


Though the world be bad,
It's the best to be had;
And therefore, Q.E.D.,
Though it mayn't suit you
And a chosen few,
It's a good enough world for me,
It's a good enough world for me.

I've got a couple more years on you babe and that's all
I've had more chances to fly and more places to fall
It's not that I'm wiser, it's just that I've spent
More time with my back to the wall and I've picked up
A couple a more years on you babe and that's all

Back in the day my theme songs would have been The Pretenders "Back in the Chain Gang" and Melanie Safka "Look What They Done to my Brain".

Now it is Cream "I'm So Glad"
