    Be so kind as to give us some context, please. ;)

    If she stopped and listened to the song of the moment, it was also running a commentary on her life. A soundtrack that could actually be pretty corny, sometimes funny, sometimes piercing.

    I'm afraid this doesn't help much. I'm not sure whether the song of the moment is supposed to be a methaphor of some kind or the woman (she) and the narrator were actually listening to some Audio CD or something.

    In the latter case it would simply mean "the song which is being played right now/at the moment (of speaking)". If it's methaphoric, then we need a wider context (more sentences from the source) to be able to help you in any way.

    Where does this passage come from? A film, a book? If so, then which one? What's the title?

    Thank you for your concern Linguos. This quote is from a book, "The Secret of Everything."

    The song of the moment is any song that is currently fashionable, or is getting played a lot on the radio, or is whistled by window cleaners, or is at number one in the hit parade.
