Personal Anthems

Emeli Sande Wonder Still

Do you ever find yourself thinking how much cooler life would be if it came with a personal soundtrack?  Say, if Eye of the Tiger played every time you stepped into the shower.  Or Beethoven’s 5th (dun dun dun DUN) during serious conversations at work.  I’m sort of always collecting theme songs for my personal soundtrack, and I think we’ve known each other long enough that I can share one of my favorites anthems with you now.

I have absolutely no idea what’s happening in this video – pink forests, doors to nowhere, orange smoke?  All I know is it made me want a popsicle.  For me – this song is the equivalent of a cornerman getting me pumped up for a boxing match – it makes me feel like I can do anything.  I also like to imagine a choir of awesome little kids singing it, so if you happen to own a choir of awesome little kids, can I borrow them?

What’s your personal anthem?

Here it is (and lyrics here if you want to have a full-out sing-along):
