Mundane Monday Morning Music: The Bangles – “Walk Like An Egyptian”
It was a shaky start for me this morning as the “bosses” kept us up half of the night, and the sight of the sun, though a welcome visitor since we have not seen much of it in the past few days, reminded me that I had to leave the warmth and comfort of my bed. 🙁
For this morning’s MMMM pick, I wanted something that was fun and that I could giggle and smile at while I am plugging away at the work in front of me. I was inspired by an episode of The Gilmore Girls (I know, but I love this show) where the Lorelai and Suki took Rory and her debate partners to NYC to see The Bangles perform live and for them to bond. That evening did not end well, but to see a band from my youth, and surprisingly, my mom owned the LP until my brother ruined it with his stylish DJ skills, was so much fun to watch.
Out of all of the great hits The Bangles put out, the one I thought would choose for this week’s pick was “Walk Like An Egyptian.” Yes, I know that the obvious choice would be “Manic Monday,” but it just didn’t feel right. “Walk Like An Egyptian” is just so much more fun, and I liked seeing people prompted to show how an Egyptian would walk back in the “80s!
This will be the last ’80s song for a while, Readers. 🙁 I will be in another musical era next week, but since I really don’t pick my songs until Monday morning, I’m not sure what decade I will be inspired by until I wake up and drag myself to my “office.”
I hope that “Walk Like An Egyptian” does the trick for you and makes you smile on this sunny, but mundane Monday morning!
Until my next post, Readers!
