Mundane Monday Morning Music: OutKast – Hey Ya!

Hey Readers!

After partying like a rock star with my youngest last night (please say you caught the sarcasm here!) and coming off of my Easter weekend sugar high, it took me forever to get going this morning.

This week’s pick was inspired by my eldest who was helping me choose a song since I was not 100% ready to go this morning. We were talking about songs that got us wanting to have fun, and “Hey Ya!” from OutKast popped into my head as this used to be one of her favourite songs when she was a little mover and groover.

Now that this song is in my head, I’m getting revved up to want to get going with my day! It’s one of my favourite OutKast songs, too.

I hope OutKast can break you out of your mundane Monday morning funk, and have you singing and shaking what you got like a Polaroid picture we are at my home right now!

Until my nest post, Readers!

Mundane Monday Morning Music: Pat Benatar – Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Hey Readers!

Week 1 of my wave of assignments and events went by in a blink of an eye! It was also a reason why I’ve been away from my blog for a while, too. 🙁

I’m not sure what inspired me to choose this week’s Mundane Monday Morning Music video, but I was surprised that I didn’t choose it before!

I think Pat Benatar’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” is an awesome choice for Monday morning like today because, for me, this song is about taking on challenges and the hick-ups that are sure to pop-up on Monday mornings, and to overcome them. It’s also fun, has a great beat, and it had my little guy and I rockin’ out on my lap as I’m clacking away on the keyboard delivering this post to you!

I hope “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” helps you overcome today’s foibles while helping to make the transition into this mundane Monday morning a lot more fun!

Until my next post, Readers!

Monday Mundane Morning Music: DJ Kool, Featuring Biz Markie & Doug E. Fresh – Let Me Clear My Throat

Hey There Readers!

This week’s pick was inspired by all of the political shenanigans that have been happening in my hometown of Toronto over the past few weeks. Its mayor, Rob Ford, other City Councilors, and the media have cleared their throat quite a bit before sharing their thoughts, so I thought that this song would be most appropriate to share with you! I also picked this song because it makes you dance in your chair, and it will stick in your head for the rest of the day.

Enjoy!

Until my next post, Readers!
