You were born to check this list out.
  

Some of these songs about being born are literal while others are less direct. Albert King’s “Born Under a Bad Sign” was performed and remixed by Alabama 3, and the result, "Woke Up This Morning," became the theme song to The Sopranos. It also became less about the narrator's origins but still held onto the basic theme.

“Born to Die” is a very popular title for songs about birth. Artists who’ve used the title include Lana Del Rey, Donna Summer, Grand Funk Railroad, and Anti-Flag. “Born to Run” is another popular song title for songs that start at the beginning, as the title has been used by Bruce Springsteen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Emmylou Harris, and Marillion.
