Sometimes when you're doing something or reading something, the universe aligns and whatever device you're using to play music on magically provides the perfect some as a soundtrack to your life.
I love those moments and they can seriously make my day.
However, it does pretty much mean:
"Carry on my wayward son" is applicable to every generic feel-y moment of life (good moment in the movie/book you're reading, feeling melancholic over your dead pet gold fish, or dumping your old laptop in the bin after it's truly expired or even that bunch of left overs in the fridge that you don't remember even cooking because that's how long they've been there.)
"Summer of '69" is generally just applicable to all moments that you are convinced you'll remember forever (the awesome road trip, the best turkey burger ever, that really funny moment, unpacking the best christmas gift ever, buying that thing you wanted for a long time, discovering an awesome new restaurant).
"Eye of the tiger" is just for every generically hard moment in life (that thesis chapter with the looming deadline, that first time you go to the gym, the job interview that has you wanting to run out the door, ordering way too much junk food but not wanting to look weak in front of the guys and EATING IT ALL because you scoffed and laughed at them for ordering less than you did)
"I want to break free" is just for every insufferable moment you'll ever have to sit through (phone calls from grandma, work meetings, that friend crying over the boyfriend everyone knows is just bad for her, that moment when you're staring at the virus scan that insists there's a virus even though you know it's just Open Source software but it won't believe you no matter what you try, doing your taxes, cleaning the kitchen, sitting in a traffic jam that was not mentioned on the radio, that terrible party that is more like funeral than a party).
When you think about it like that, life's soundtrack is pretty damn generic and repetitive.
The soundtrack of life
