Time of My Life by Allison Winn Scotch

Jillian Westfield has the perfect suburban life straight out of the upscale womens magazines that she obsessively reads. She’s got the modern-print rugs of Metropolitan Home, the elegant meals from Gourmet, the clutter-free closets out of Real Simple, and the elaborate Easter egg hunts seen in Parents. With her successful investment banker husband behind the wheel and her cherubic eighteen-month-old in the backseat, hers could be the family in the magazines’ glossy Range Rover ads.

Yet somehow all of the how-to magazine stories in the world can’t seem to fix her faltering marriage, banish the tedium of days spent changing diapers, or stop her from asking, “What if?”

Then one morning Jillian wakes up seven years in the past. Before her daughter was born. Before she married Henry. Suddenly she’s back in her post–grad school Ikea-furnished Manhattan apartment. She’s back in her fast-paced job with the advertising agency. And she’s still with Jackson, the ex-boyfriend and star of her what-if fantasies.

Armed with twenty-twenty hindsight, she’s free to choose all over again. She can use the zippy ad campaigns from her future to wow the clients and bosses in her present. She can reconnect with the mother who abandoned her so many years before. She can fix the fights at every juncture that doomed her relationship with Jackson. Or can she?

With each new choice setting off a trajectory of unforeseen consequences, Jillian soon realizes that getting to happily ever after is more complicated than changing the lines in her part of the script. Happiness, it turns out, isn’t an either-or proposition. As she closes in on all the things she thought she wanted, Jillian must confront the greatest what-if of all: What if the problem was never Henry or Jackson, but her?

Sharp, funny, and heartwarming, Time of My Life will appeal to anyone who has ever wanted to redo the past and will leave readers pondering, “Do we get the reality we deserve?”

Green Day Good Riddance/Time Of Your Life (10 Hour Loop)

I had a hundred bucks in my bank account. The label my band Franke and the Knockouts had been with had closed and I was trying to get another deal. I was selling cars out of my driveway, living on a prayer.

Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)

Singer-songwriter Previte was the lead singer of the band Franke and the Knockouts. He had success with the song " Sweetheart " in , but by was without a recording contract. In late or early , producer and head of Millennium Records , Jimmy Ienner , asked Previte about writing some music for "a little movie called Dirty Dancing ". Previte initially turned the request down because he was still trying to get a record deal, [2] but Ienner was persistent, and got Previte to write several songs for the film, including " Hungry Eyes ", later recorded by singer Eric Carmen , which also became a top 10 hit. After getting further approval, Previte created a demo of the song, performing on it himself, along with singer Rachele Cappelli. The demo showcased how the harmonies were to be used, employing a "cold open", or a slow build-up of the song to its finale.

Although it was not issued as a single at the time of its release in the United States, "Good Riddance Time of Your Life " sold over 2. It has also become a staple of the band's concerts and is usually played as the final song in their live shows. He did not show the song to his bandmates until the Dookie recording sessions later the same year. He sent the band to play foosball in another room while he recorded the strings, which took "like fifteen, twenty minutes, maybe a half an hour at the most. It was a hit the second I heard it.
