Recently I learned that when certified diva Mariah Carey enters a room, she likes for only her hit songs to be used as background music the entire time she is present.
And when I say “likes for” I mean that if you’re the DJ and you’re not playing Mariah, there’s a good chance your next gig will be at an interstate Ramada with the weeds growing in the parking lot cracks.
While some might think this is silly and over-the-top behavior, I think our girl might be onto something.
We all should have a theme song when we enter a room. I am considering demanding that each time I step into an elevator, office lobby or, OK, my own living room, the music should immediately switch to my personal theme song.
I didn’t actually have one until I read about Mariah but now I’ve adopted that Donna Summer classic: “She Works Hard for the Money.” Who can resist a little disco, amiright?
What follows is my list of possible theme songs for a few notables. Keep in mind, these are carefully curated suggestions that I have painstakingly developed following an exhaustive 10-minute Google search of popular song titles. OK, maybe I don’t work THAT hard for the money.
You’re welcome to come up with your own suggestions, but for now I hope you'll consider…
