Needing inspiration! Send me your suggestions!
Friday, December 26th, 2014

I got nuthin’. Woke up late after a very nice day of excess—big midafternoon dinner, then a lazy evening crocheting on a couch with my dd while the kids played around us. I need a cup of ambition to get going today. I’m trying to do that with music.

Gotye made me want to go back to bed. Enrique’s “Bailando” was more on track. Had to follow with Gypsy Kings–“Bambaleo” and “La Bamba” but then my dance music ran out. Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” is better for late at night. Katy Perry annoys me. David and Disturbed are too…disturbing…right now.

Any suggestions for music that will get my blood going? Oh! I forget I have Bruno’s “Uptown Funk.” That will keep me going for a few minutes. Suggestions, please?

    Sorry, it played for me. Google Hooked on Classics and click on the UTube version by Lewis.

    How about some Pink? Or maybe some fun 80s stuff like The Hooters? 😀

    Hi Delilah

    I have no clue what music would get you going in the writing direction. When I’m working I tend to listen to country music. This would include Kenny Chesney, Billy Currington, Luke Bryan and such. Or, I listen to my 70s or disco music.

    Good luck finding your music groove.

    Hi Delilah! How do you feel about Michael Buble’? He’s one of my all time faves, especially the albums It’s Time and Call Me Irresponsible. Also love Joan Osborne & Depeche Mode & The Commitments soundtrack.

    Kid Rock’s Rock and Roll Jesus, All Summer Long, or Rebel Soul should perk you up.

    How bout Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”. I may be old but that song gets even my blood pumping.

    Nickelback gets me motivated to move. I also like Arctic Monkeys and the Kongos. 🙂 I hope you found your musical motivator today. Sorry I’m late sharing but maybe for another day. 😀
