Rather, this is a tribute to a grandiose adventure Lila and I went on (with our co-conspirator, Linds). Imagine it: Friday the 13th; 1800-ish feet in the air; and, we decide to dangle. EdgeWalk.
First things first – cue the Theme Music:
(Theme Song selection was one made en route to our adventure – of course, the provider of the inspiration and Lila share aged memories… I, being the veritable youngster – and I use that term with my intrepid tongue shoved firmly in my cheek – can barely remember the show, but indulge these moments of hilarity because, well, they’re funny as hell. And we needed a theme song. )
As Lila and I sat at our delicious Cora’s breakfast (an overloading of carbs and sugar, which was ingested in Brantford.. of all places…) we determined that an adventure of this magnitude warranted a list. Because, when do we not make lists of songs? Thus the Top 10 Songs to Walk the Edge To was born. We solicited help from one of my favourite music purveyors (who has mad Google Skillz, far faster than my trusty BB Browser), scoured our iPods (which are always at-the-ready) and debated.
And with full bellies and the anticipation of hanging hundreds of feet off a perfectly good building, our list was complete.
Betty Beat Hangs Out
5. Purple Haze – Jimi Hendrix
4. Falling Down – Muse
3. Wish I Could Fly Like Superman – The Kinks (my lists are never complete without a Steel Man reference…)
2. Hold On – Alabama Shakes
1. Learn to Fly – Foo Fighters
5. Fall on Me – REM
4. Falling or Flying – Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
3. Free Fallin’ – Tom Petty
2. Up Up Up – The Givers
1. High and Dry – Radiohead (I’m certain there are 2 people in particular who will be happy to see a Radiohead inclusion…)
As great as all these songs are and as good a soundtrack they made for an amazing adventure, I have to say – there is one single video that encompasses the sheer joy you can find at the “top of the world” (or as close to it as $200 will pay for…)
