Daily Prompt: Mix Tape – Who am I?

WordPress Daily Prompt
You make a new friend. Make them a mix tape (or playlist, for the younger folks) that tells them who you are through song.  Photographers, artists, poets: show us MUSIC.


Good morning and welcome to my blog. My name is Susan and I was born in 1982 in a small town called Covington, TN and have since moved to another small town in Kentucky.

I suppose I’ll always live in a small town and would make sense to start off my playlist with…

1.) John Mellencamp – Small Town

As I grew up, I started to become more of an introvert and was rather shy. People thought of that as weak which made it easy for myself to be something of a target to being bullied for various reasons.

In any case, this song would definitely be number two…

2.) TLC – Unpretty

Of course, it could also be partially due to the fact I was a bit of a nerd…..

3.) Weird Al – White &Nerdy

Not going to lie, through all that…it did hurt

4.) R.E.M. – Everybody Hurts


But I had a few close friends that helped me through it…

5. ) Ben E. King – Stand By Me

One very dear and special friend of mine helped me to see that I should be proud of who I am. Brad has been there for me through a lot of things and helped me see things in a different light. He showed me that I was in fact, well…he played me this song…

6.) Salt N Pepa – Body Beautiful

Then I met up with my boyfriend when I was about 19 but in the end, he ended up hurting me. Eventually I broke from him and went our separate ways. I didn’t like who I was when I was with him…

7.) Stevie Ray Vaughan – Tightrope

And I wound up leaving Covington shortly after that….

8.) Steve Miller Band – Jet Airliner

At 23, I had met a new man. We spent the next few years getting together…

9.) Marvin Gaye – How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)

Breaking Up because of…

10.) Joey + Rory – Cheater, Cheater


Thus making me a single lady…

11.) Beyonce – Single Ladies


Getting back together and forgiving him…

12.) Alan Jackson – Wanted


Getting Married…

13.) Big and Rich – Lost in This Moment


And working through the bumps in our relationship along the way…

14.) Pink – Try

And in the midst of all that, I have been trying to figure out what I want to do as a career and as well as soul searching. I’ve definitely got a lot of interests…

15.) Owl City – Fireflies

Overall, I think my life has been pretty fantastic. I’ve loved, lost, and keep going. I love all sorts of music (as you can probably tell) and I’m flat broke but I do it in style.

16.) New Radicals – You get what you give

I quite enjoyed doing this writing prompt and hope you enjoyed reading my daily blog.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and a fantastic week.

Much Love,
