Dancing The Polka With Miss El Cajon: The Soundtrack

If this isn't already a meme, it is now. On Kari's blog she's listed the songs that would be featured on the soundtrack of her life, if her life were a film. So I'm stealing that idea and running with it.
Here are 15 tracks that would be on my soundtrack. It is by no means all-inclusive and only covers my life to this point.
1 - "An American Trilogy" -- Elvis Presley
2 - "Blue Skies" -- Willie Nelson
3 - "Texas Playboy Rag" -- Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys
4 - "Helter Skelter" -- The Beatles
5 - "You Didn't Need" -- Rollins Band
6 - "Friday I'm In Love" -- The Cure
7 - "Little Wing" -- Stevie Ray Vaughan
8 - "Freebird" -- Lynyrd Skynyrd
9 - "Have You Seen Her?" -- Chi-Lites
10 - "Cold Beverage" -- G. Love and Special Sauce
11 - "I Would Have Left You" -- Reef
12 - "How'd We Get So Good At Sayin' Goodbye" -- AJ Croce
13 - "Tupelo Honey" -- Van Morrison
14 - "Oxygen" -- Willy Mason
15 - "Beauties Can Die" -- M83

I think you're right. Perhaps a version of "In Heaven There Is No Beer" should go in there somewhere. Performed by my high school marching band, of course. I am also disappointed in the absence of ska or dance music. And there isn't nearly enough blues. But I chose just 15 tracks.

Been of a mood to create a link to your blog; I sat down and read the majority of your archive, would like to continue on. Visit my own hole in the virtual ground if it pleases you, give me a thumbs-up/down. No reciprocal needed.

Have a nice day, and all that jazz.
