I find myself needing music less and less to pump me up (which is awesome! and means I must like my job), however there is one week every two months out of the year that makes me want to stay in bed forever. That would be this week when the new hires descend upon our corporate headquarters. And lucky me gets to feed them breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as print out all their handouts, binders, make their hotel reservations and generally be their maid. Which requires me to get to work early and sometimes stay late.
Enter my new WG pump me up mix.
1. "Life is a Highway" by Rascal Flatts
This song has the ability to automatically put a smile on my face because it reminds me of road trips and great country concerts and summer and Coronas. Yum.
You cannot believe my disappointment when WG1 told me that this wasn't a summer show, and that the pilot they showed us was a teaser for the fall. This song will get me through the summer by reminding me of Jersey and just keep believing.
3. "I'll Make a Man Out of You" by Donny Osmond (from the Mulan soundtrack)
And you think I'm kidding. Mulan kicked some major ass. Talk about a role model!
4. "What Would Jay-Z Do?" by Ben Lee
Jay-Z would hire a personal assistant to do all this crap work for him.
5. "Rockstar" by Prima J
Ever since this song was featured on Gossip Girl it makes me feel like I'm Blair Waldorf whenever I listen to it. Is it sad that I idolize Blair Waldorf who is a 17-year-old beotch on TV? I can't help it - she takes names.
6. "Shine" by Anna Nalick
She had that hit single "Breathe", which I loved and this song is empowering like whoa.
7. "Do Somethin" by Britney Spears
This song reminds me of WG1 and I rocking out the summer after sophomore year in college while driving around campus in her car (probably when we should have been at work). Oh how chaotic.
8. "Fight Like a Girl" by Bomshel
I just downloaded this song and it is sheer feminism in a song. Right up my alley.
9. "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus
And I'm not even doing a #10 because I just realized that a) I look like a huge teenybopper and b) that's creepy since I'm 24.
But for serious, all these songs make me feel like I could take on the world (or at least that 4PM status meeting). Woohoo!
