Five songs to live your life by

When from Curly and Candid tagged me in this meme I was actually quite pleased. Give five songs that you live your life by, your philosophies, your reasons for the way you react the way you do that is so easy for me so here are five songs that sum up how I live my life and how I would like to see my children live their life.

Everybody's free to wear sunscreen - Baz Luhrmann
Daddy putting sun cream on Top Ender
Daddy creaming up Top Ender on a trip to London
Right so technically this one is cheating, because this one has a tonne of advice in it all of which is something that I hope that my children will understand as they get older and apply to their lives. If there was ever a song to live your life by this has to be it.

I am what I am - La Cage Aux Folles

Pippa on the beach
This is ME!
I so hope that my children learn this lesson quickly. It took me a long time to learn not to apologise for who I am, and to be proud that I am me. Plus when Moses asked God what his name was in Exodus, God replied "I am what I am", how cool is that?!

Always look on the bright side of life - Monty Python Life Of Brian

St Mary's Church, Bletchley

What great advice this song has, no matter what life throws at you there is a bright side and as long as you can see it then everything will be okay. Also my step father in law wanted this played at his funeral, but the vicar thought it inappropriate so not only do I now think that the vicar at my local church to be an idiot but when ever I hear this I think of Brian (yes his my step father in law's name was Brian) and erm I may have sung it in the church and emphasised the Life's a piece of shit bit.

If I Had $1000000 - Barenaked Ladies

Ragley Hall might be for sale one day...

It's okay to dream and think about what life would be like if you were rich. Its fun and good practice just in case one day you really do have a lot of money to play with! The important thing is that you don't spend all day everyday thinking about what might be, but spend time working on making that dream a reality! Oh and Kids, whoever makes the big money first is going to buy me a big house right? Right?

Today Is Going To Be A Great Day - Bowling For Soup

Top Ender and Big Boy faking it until they make it
Grin as if you mean it.
These days we live everyday trying to have more fun, just like Phineas and Ferb. Everyday is going to be a great day we just have to make it be a great day it's up to us. And I know we can do it!

So now on to the tagging! I was going to tag Sally, but she would never do this so I thought I would tag Jen, but then I thought she links up music from her life everyweek so I thought I would tag

Emma so I can speed up her descent to bridezilla by making her choose music that means something to her
Vic because I miss Vic!
Karin because I know that Karin is super cool
Laura because I am tagging her in everything these days and
Claire because she loves music!
