30 Days of Truth: Day Twenty Four

Day Twenty Four - Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs.

To those who are going to be present to celebrate my life after I'm gone. Please play these 10 songs, have a shot or three of tequila, and think well of me. And dance.

Roundabout by Yes - because it is the one song that captures the love I feel for the Pacific NW and the home that I've found here. "In and around the lake... mountains come out of the sky and stand there..." and remember, "You'll see I'll be there with you..."
(listen to it here)

Sunshine of Your Love by Eric Clapton (Cream) - because the love of my friends and family has been the light that guides me.
(listen to it here)

Life is Wonderful by Jason Mraz - because it is and I want everyone to know and be reminded of how much I loved my life.
(listen to it here)

In Spite of Ourselves by John Prine and Iris Dement - because humor is as vital to any relationship as love is.
(listen to it here)

Smoothie Song by Nickel Creek - because it's impossible to feel sad during this song and I want people to know how much joy I always felt.
(listen to it here)

Fishin' in the Dark by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - because it's the simple things in life that are the best. Really. Trust me on this.
(listen to it here)

Shambhala by Three Dog Night - because every day is a step on the road to Shambhala. How does your light shine? Make it bright. I tried to.
(listen to it here)

Seasons of Love from the musical RENT - because I measured my life in love. I hope in the end I gave more than I received.
(listen to it here)

All the Same by Sick Puppies - because we all have flaws and twists and scarred hearts. "I'll take you for who you are if you'll take me for everything." I hope I was gentle with the flaws, twists and scars in others. I tried.
(listen to it here)

I'll See You in My Dreams by George Harrisson - because every memorial needs some ukulele music. And because I think this is one of the most lovely, sweet, simple songs ever written.
(listen to it here)
