Finding Songs for the Soundtrack of Your Life

It’s always a great experience to turn back and reminisce about the way we grew up. With or without parents, our growing up stage had struggles, emotions, and memories – both good and bad — no wonder why many artists and musicians have paid tribute to it all the time.

For sure, you have experience and mixed feelings when you became a parent yourself and see your little children grow up. You may have been proud of what your child has become and wish them all the best in the world, but at the same time, the parent inside you longs for the days when your children were still small and always wanting to spend time with you.

When you hear your baby’s first word, it becomes a happy memory. When your baby begins to crawl, it’s an exciting milestone. When you drop off your kid on his or her first day at school, you begin to dream about their academic future. The day you let your child drive, you become proud but nervous at the same time. Their graduation day becomes an exhilarating moment where you’re at your proudest. And there’s their wedding day when you’re so happy for your child for finding a partner in life, but a little part of you doesn’t want to let go yet.

Parents take a lot of trouble and pain to raise their children right and do everything they possibly can. There might be times when you disagree with your kid, but in the end, it’s their happiness that matters. When you want to celebrate your life as a parent or your own life as you reminisce about the years behind you, there are some songs about it. There are happy songs about growing up, and there are not-so-happy songs that can make you feel emotional. Check out these songs about growing up, and you might find a soundtrack to your life:
