Fanfare


At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements ;)

What if we all had our own theme music that played wherever we went? What should your theme song be?

Today's A to Z Challenge post brought to you by the letter...

  6. This past year it's been Tubthumping " I get knocked down But I get up again
    You're never gonna keep me down"

  7. Something metal. About violently destroying my enemies. You know, the kind of thing that makes people run away when they hear me coming :)

    1. "Dead Man's Party" actually featured significantly in my Z post last year...

  9. I have given this a lot of thought in the past. Years ago it would've been Christina Aguilera's "Fighter.". But now? Hmm...I don't know I have too many favorites.

    1. Yeah, I don't know if I could pick one, either.

  10. It depends on the day -- sunshine, rain. That would create a certain mood, which in turn would have to dictate music. Same as a movie, from fast to slow to lingering to happy and sad. Nothing very new, I don't think. Older songs like CCR's Have You Ever Seen The Rain which was stuck in my head all day today.

    1. We'll go with CCR today. Tomorrow you can change it.

  11. My kids would probably say Darth Vader's music--the march that plays whenever he's on-screen. :)

  12. Currently, my theme song is BWV 869 (Fuga 24 in Bach's Well-tempered Clavier.)

    1. Don't know that one off the top of my head, but I've probably heard it.

  13. Kenny Rogers' song: You gotta know when to hold....

  14. Love Me Do. I saw The Beatles in 1964 and today I have my Beatles motorcycle painted with them on it. Love Me Do was and still is the "it" song for me. LOL though, wouldn't that be funny to have music playing when we entered a room! Fun post.

  17. One theme song? I think it would change based on what's going on each day. Definitely food for thought.

    1. I don't see why you couldn't have several that you cycle through.

  18. I'm thinking either "Shoot to Thrill" by AC/DC or "Enter Sandman" by Metallica.

  19. 100 years by Five for Fighting. It reminds me I'm not going to live forever so I'd better do something.

  20. Definitely Fanfare For The Common Man by Aaron Copland. It's loud and dramatic so everyone would hear me coming and take notice!

  21. I love "what if" questions. They generate entire novels!
