What is your personal theme song? What would your national anthem be?

Mine? I love "One Love." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xjPODksI08

The national anthem in my country would be If You Want to Sing Out Sing Out:

And you wouldn't have to stand with your hand on your heart, but jigging about would be optional

Eta: one love is a pretty good one too!

Hmm, at the moment I'd say my personal theme song would be Laura Marling's Alas I Cannot Swim: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94_X6cVwJWQ

And as for a National Anthem, this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7JthgTMHDU Although if you ask me in a week, I'd probably choose another, haha.

This chant helps me prepare my mind for restfulness. If you have sleep problems- Try some chamomile tea and a good 20 minutes of chanting. Bliss out time.

This is my Sleep Anthem. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxa7Z6NCgqg

I personally like the national anthem we have now even though there are few that can do it just when singing it at sporting events.

My personal theme song? that's a tough one.

Maybe Ola Belle Reed's "High on a Mountain" or Charlie Daniel's "Long Haired Country Boy" or maybe his version of "What This World Needs is a Few More Rednecks"
There are a lot of good ones out there... can't say that any of them exactly sum me up as a person.

As a personal anthem,I like Sinatra's "My Way", Seeger's "Like a Rock"and The Who's "Don't Get Fooled Again". My personal life is more like Springsteen's "The River" and Jagger's "Moonlight Mile", "No Expectations" and "Time Waits for No One".

Hmmm... personal theme song..

Hard to pick but I would say it's a toss up between.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Simple Man
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHQ_aTjXObs

Hank Williams Jr. - Country Boy Can Survive
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4s0nzsU1Wg

Also anything by Johny Cash, and banjos always make me smile

Personal theme song: Requiem for a Dream

Anthem: Grendel - Zombie Nation 2K5

I know, I know. Kind of far apart on the spectrum, but I am a musical connoisseur.

Ooo, good choice. And it reminded me...

If I could have epic theme music follow me around, it would be My Name is Lincoln: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHuTxNIpdeM

I am not familiar with that song, but I like it. It is rather contemplative and energetic. Thanks! Why can you not have epic theme music follow you around? I like to think -- not to step on anyone's toes -- that the type of music tells you a lot of a person. Side Note: I listen to a lot of Pagan metal, Electronica from industrial to trance, dance, and R&B. Depends if I have driving, working, or relaxing. lol

I don't have a lifelong favorite , I adopt knew ones as I go along. Waymores Blues by Waylon Jennings and most Billy Joe Shaver songs when I'm in a country kinda way. Rudie Can't Fail by The Clash. John Prine and Iris Dement _ In Spite of Ourselves. On a very personal note - My son Mike Spero's music . If you want homemade music - grow your own musicians. Go to my space Mike Spero - Recording a Record. Pills and The Waterfall are my two favorites , they are 3-4 years old and he has newer stuff out not on my space. Off to a good start for strapping 25 year old lad. As National Anthem -Peaches and Regalia

My own song should be something like this:
Savage Daughter

Lynyrd Skynyrds Simple Man touches a nerve too...

With the wild friends I run with this could be an anthem:
Arkona - Slavsia Rus

Dear me, do I have to admit to it...

"Stuck in the middle with you." by Stealers Wheel.

My wife have been on our journey together for more than 31 years.

"The logical song" by Supertramp - was a favorite of mine during my "break out" years and Learning to Fly by Pink Floyd. Darkside of the Moon too. Back then when we were poor, I was considered crazy, now I am eccentric. (The only difference between crazy and eccentric in my opinion is your net worth. lol)

I sometimes deal with late night intruders when I sleep at job sites. I like to quietly raise the back door of my mini van to expose the big speakers. I put in a CD of Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song, turned up real loud. Then, if I have a window of little value, I hurl a brick through it for dramatic effect. Sometimes I smack duct work with my pry bar that I sleep with. Then I yell at the top of my lungs that I'm going to beat anyone who remains after one minute. They always leave without further prompting.

Immediately after making the noise, I fall silent and move to the shadows with my bar in one hand and this light trenching shovel in the other. One fool ran across a dark parking lot and ended up in a ditch beside an excavator, another tried to scramble over a pile of scrap wood and got cought up on the nails. It's great fun to watch them scale fences.

I think the Zeppelin tune is much more appropriate for this sort of fun than a Judy Garland song ever could be. Is this what they mean by "mood music" ?

I am told recording the sound of a shell being chambered in a shotgun is a very good deterrent in these cases. lol

Dale... your story made me howl...
I've got a (completely useless otherwise) app on my smartphone that very accurately mimics various loading and cocking sounds of a collection of firearms. It's enough to freak some people out

Sorry for the completely off-topic remarks :')

If you can howl, that might be worth setting to music and recording !
