TMIT: Background Music


Wouldn’t life be more interesting if it was punctuated by background music in certain situations? Yes of course it would!

Below I have given you the situation, you name the background music that should play. Have fun, it’s the soundtrack of your life.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a TMI Tuesday post and this week’s theme really appealed to me. I love music! I know, most people do. I wake up to music, drive around with music on the radio, and have songs set for my alarms and reminders. It’s a lot easier on the ears than incessant ringing or beeping.

I decided to limit myself to the music currently on my phone for my answers. My iPod is MIA and my computer is at home, and I am sitting in the lunchroom trying to take a break from the work that keeps piling up on my desk. If I get time after work I may even add the videos. Let’s see how it goes…

1. When you wake up in the morning.

“The Story”  by Brandi Carlisle – This is my wake up song. It’s not too loud and heavy. It starts of low and soft, whispering you awake. Just the right pace for starting the day.

2. When you climax during sex.

“Release” by Pearl Jam – This is my ultimate sex song. Several things contribute to this for me, not the least of which is Eddie Vedders sexy voice. I like this song because it builds from a slow pulse to a crescendo, just like the act of sex does. Then, at the end of the song is a hidden track, Master & Slave, that brings you back down after your orgasm.  

3. When you urinate.

“3 am” by Matchbox Twenty – Simply because I’m always in there at 3 am.

4. When you walk into your home after a long day of work.

“Karma Chameleon” by Culture Club – When we get home it’s Mamma and Little Boy time. We color and sing & dance and play games. He loves this song and it does a great job of making you forget the long work day and just puts a great big smile on our faces. Sometimes he will get his accordion or pan flute out and start playing along. Yes, I have a very musical three year old.

5. When you take the first sip of your favorite beverage.

“Long Time” by Cake – It’s often a long time between sippings of my favorite rye and ginger. 

Bonus: When you are reprimanding your kids or yelling at your significant other.

“Uprising” by Muse – Seems the child is always trying to revolt, to push his boundaries and my limits. I don’t yell at my significant other. 

Bonus, Bonus: When you are having sexual relations.

“Release” by Pearl Jam, as mentioned earlier.

Another good one is “Crash” by Dave Matthews Band
