Get A Theme Song...NOW
Written By: Jeff

For the longest time, I've always felt like something was missing from life. I thought I could fill this void through acts of self denial and hurling whiskey bottles at ducks but now I realize that it's time to face reality, people need a theme songs. Seeing as the president has one (I think it's that old Rubber Ducky song from Sesame Street), it just proves that theme songs are an important part of life. I mean, how else would we know that we found the A-Team or that Hulk Hogan was a real American?

If movies have taught me anything, it's that a good orchestrated theme song can not only define who you are but inform others of things to come. For example, whenever Indiana Jones' theme plays you know it's only a matter of time before Indy will start to kick the collective asses of any and all Nazi's in the area. When Shaft's theme began, you knew he was about to stick it to the man and whenever the Rambo theme kicked in people would expect a high body count and lots of firepower.

Not only is a theme song informative but it also motivates the person it's about. Let's say for example, that you were walking through six feet of snow in Nevada and suddenly came across a burning building full of swimsuit models. But since you don't have any motivating theme music, you pass on the opportunity forfeiting all the Spanish gold they would have surely awarded you with. It also works great when used with preparing for some big event like in Rocky, which I'm sure he wouldn't have trained so hard for his fights if his work out music was from Uh-Huh.

When all is said and done though, it all comes down to personal reference. Some people like "da phat beats" and others like meaningful themes that deal with real problems and stupid shit like that. Finally, whatever you decided on for your theme song just be sure to always have someone nearby who can play it when shit hit's the fan, I'd suggest homeless people for this seeing as they have nothing better to do and work for French fries.

Now I'll leave you with these words of wisdom from to opening of Different Strokes, "The world don't move to the beat of just one drum. What might be right for you may not be right for some." True today as it was when they weren't in jail or dead.
