The Soundtrack of Our Lives

(another great poem by Moine McGibany)

Note: All titles in quotations are now available on the playlist above.

It started with a rock 

and a little bit of roll

We did a little hop

and loved to do the stroll

We shook it up with some Doo Wop

and loved that sweet, sweet soul

Forget about "Puppy Love"

We were "Teenagers in Love"

We were living in a "Sea of Love"

We were looking for "Good Lovin'"

and we couldn't "Help Falling in Love"

Some thought they could write the "Book of Love"

but "Ain't It a Shame” "Why Do Fools Fall in Love?"

and before you know it, "It's Bye, Bye Love"

Man, we were ready to "Twist and Shout"

and "Let It All Hang Out"

"Donna" “Oh Donna” I wanted you to "Love Me Tender"

but you thought I was the “Great Pretender"

Some had the "Summer Time Blues"

‘cause they couldn't find their "Blue Suede Shoes"

"Susie” "Wake Up Little Susie"

it's "Louie, Louie"

You know, you "Really Got a Hold on Me"

We can "Rock Around the Clock"

Will you meet me "At the Hop"

"Peggy Sue"  "I Only Have Eyes for You"

you know, "I Love the Way You Do the Things You Do"

We were caught in a "Heat Wave" 

Some were just starting to shave

"Charlie Brown" and "The Duke of Earl" were there

The joint was jumping, no time to be square

Everything was right

What could go wrong

It's the soundtrack of our lives

It's written in our songs

and if you've "Lost That Lovin' Feeling"

Don't give up, keep believing
