The joke is of course that whoever came up with this little cliche simply assumed that the song that represents life is supposedly cheerful and happy and all about birds singing, beez buzzing and children playing in green meadows.
I am saying this because today my life is a Linkin Park song, and it is neither cheerful, nor happy. It is however gut wrenching, honest and true. And it refuses to not be heard.
So here's my question to whoever is reading this - what song is playing in your heart today?
