We all have songs or albums that have greatly influenced our lives in one way or another. Just as a scent can trigger a memory, so can music. It is the perfect recall tool when it comes to important events- Your first kiss, your first boyfriend/girlfriend, the day you got married, the loss of a loved one, etc.
A soundtrack of your life can act like a map marking the significant events that took place and evoking the nostalgia associated with it. By looking back at the events you can see the path that can propel you forward, a self-reflection exercise if you will.
Just as our life can have a soundtrack, so can our relationships. They can be certain songs/albums/genres that you “assign” to a special person- about love, friendship, or even heartbreak. I find that the soundtracks of my relationships are much more emotional and if I’m in a fragile state listening to these songs can have a negative affect on me. A word of caution if you choose to do a soundtrack of a failed relationship or the loss of a loved one, the last thing I want to do is make anyone feel bad about this project.
So let’s get down to the nitty-gritty (as my dad likes to say). If you had to create a soundtrack of your life what songs would mark your special moments? This can be as long as you wish, but I do suggest keeping it to 10 or less, as I’m looking for the reason behind the song.
If you have created or would like to create a soundtrack of your relationship(s), what songs would you include and why? What feelings do they evoke when you listen to them? Relationships can include significant others, friends, or family members, and like the life soundtrack I do suggest keeping this list to 10 or less as we are a curious lot and would like to know the details.
