Not only is the Styx song you are talking about, one of the greatest Styx songs ever,but it does have nice lyrics now that I think about it. It's like the ups and downs of someones entrepreneurial adventure. Maybe I should find my song for June...I'm liking this song of the month thing.

My entrepreneurial theme song is "Freedom" by George Michael. I was thinking that it'd be a great opener to one of those massive marketing conferences... pounding through the walls as everyone's milling in. Yee-haww! I think I will play it on Rhapsody now.



Annie Zee,

Thanks for the memories! Styx was such an integral part of my teenage years and Come Sail Away is obviously one of their classics. I'm also partial to Renegade.

I suppose if I had to choose a theme song it would have to be "Making It" by David Naughton, of Dr. Pepper and An American Werewolf in London fame. A short and punchy little diddy which always makes me smile and sets my toes to tappin'!

Yeah, the song is a tad bit egotistical, and that's all right with me. What I don't understand is why everyone else on the planet doesn't feel the same way ... "I'm as bad as they come, number 2 to no one." "Make some room now, DIG what you see." EVERYONE should feel the exact same way. 'Nuff said.

David Naughton

Makin' it, oo makin' it

I'm solid gold
I've got the goods
They stand when I walk
Through the neighborhoods

I'm makin' it
I've got the chance, I'm takin' it
No more, no more, Fakin' it
This time in life, I'm makin' it (ooo)

Makin' it

Hello uptown, Goodbye poverty
The top of the ladder is waiting for me

I'm makin' it,
I've got the chance, I'm takin' it
No more, no more fakin' it
This time in life, I'm makin' it (ooo)
Makin' it, makin' it

Listen everyone here
This coming year's gonna be my year
I'm as bad as they come
Number two to no one
I've got looks, I've got brains
And I'm breakin' these chains
Make some room now
dig what you see
Success is mine
'Cause I've got the key
I'm makin' it
(repeat chorus)


Well I'll be...I always thought the words were, "set an open course for emergencies!" Of course, in my youth I always thought that holiday ditty sang, "later on we'll perspire while we sit by the fire." Made sense when I was seven.

Anyhow, sail on Shortbread lady! May this be the early part of the journey to explore many wide open, wonderful seas.!

The best from "The Eclectic Writer" herself

I'm finding this post/thread highly amusing. Ann, I think you should find a way to load that song onto your blog when people click. Okay, maybe too much stimulation.

What about a Vermont Shortbread music video!

Anne's response is making me laugh. Reminds me of my recent flub with the AC/DC song, "Dirty Deeds" or whatever it is. The line is, "Dirty deeds and they're done dirt cheap."

I always thought it was, "Dirty Deeds and the Thunder Chief." Like it was about some famed character, possibly a native American warrior. I always pictured him looking stern in his feathered headdress. The Thunder Chief. Of course.

Hi Anne,
This brings back memories for me of several songs that I had wrong for so long! A Beatles song and one by the Police... It really made me smile!

Thinking more about the Sailing song and I can picture you playing it on your piano late at night! I look forward to hearing it sometime!
