wraith, your telling of mentioning this topic at your work reminded me of why I ever thought of it in the first place. Â
Back in '93 I used to work in a music store (CD's, tapes, etc.), and, probably due to watching all the different types of people walk around the store, while being forced to constantly listen to the horrible "play-tape" of popular singles, which the home office sent every two weeks, (imagine having to hear the same Michael Bolton or Kenny G. type of songs over and over for eight hours a day! ), my co-worker and I came up with the idea out of boredom.
Though my co-worker thought that MY song should have been that dark theme which follows Darth Vader around in every scene where he's walking somewhere in Star Wars, I decided upon the one which would best encompass my inner and outer self, back then and still to this day: "O Fortuna", the first movement to the great "Carmina Burana". The music would build as I walked somewhere, and hit it's famous peak just as I would enter through the door.
Unless, of course, I was driving somewhere. Then, I would have to be followed by the theme from the movie "The Omen"! Â
- If Jesus comes, he won't forgive me. "Nothing's true," is what he'll say. "In your mind, I see that something is changing and, in your time, you'll see that all this could have been a lie."
