Mundane Monday Morning Music: Meghan Trainor: “Better When I’m Dancin'”

Mornin’ Readers, Easter Monday is here. It is a cold and gray affair, raining cats and dogs. I know that rain is part of the spring experience, but not for the end of a holiday weekend! It is also adding to the dreariness of Monday morning. Since Easter is all about fun and colour, I …

Mundane Monday Morning Music: LL Cool J – “Mama Said Knock You Out”

Mornin’ Readers!

It’s a new year, and just about everyone is dreading getting back into their normal routine. It was so hard to roll out of bed this morning and get clacking away.

I have been saving today’s MMMM pick for a while, waiting for today to play it, since I feel that it is a great fit for the first official work day after the holiday season.  Today, I chose to play LL Cool J’s “Mama Said Knock You Out.” This is such an amazing song that has held up since it was released in 1990 (Yeah, I was shocked to see just how long ago this song was released as well)! It’s energetic, inspiring, fun, nostalgic and it makes me move! Oh, and, of course, getting to see LL Cool J first thing in the morning is an added bonus (HELLO)!!!!  😛 For me, these are all needed (and wanted) aspects to a great MMMM song!

I hope that “Mama Said Knock You Out” helps you fight to get back into your work routine with smile this morning!

Until my next post, Readers!

Mundane Monday Morning Music: Miranda Lambert – “New Strings”

Mornin’ Readers! It the first Monday after the time change for Daylight Savings, and I still have not fully adjusted yet.  My younger daughter still thinks that she is a rooster, waking every one before the crack of dawn, so I’m a bit off center, but hopefully, I’ll be back to (somewhat) normal by noon.  …

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!

Mundane Monday Morning Music: Katy Perry – Roar

Morning Readers!

In this installment of Mundane Monday Morning Music, I have to admit that I was wrong about something I said. While having a conversation with a group of fellow blogger, I said that I was not able to relate to the music that has been released over the past two years. I said it didn’t move me, and that I had given up listening to it because of the message I was receiving from what was being sung by these artists.

Why was I wrong? Well, Readers, it was after listening to Katy Perry’s Roar, that I had to admit I was moved by some of the artists that have been releasing new music lately.  Roar is just one of those songs that inspires you, makes you want to overcome what is putting you down, and make the day yours. That is a part of the reason why I’ve chosen this song for today’s weekly feature.  Not only do I want to try to make you smile, but I want to also help you feel as though you can take on every Monday and concur it.

I hope this week’s picks does just that for you.

Until my next post, Readers!
