Name a song you would put on a mix-tape to pump you up for a sporting event.
We are on day two of our Mix-Tape week of the Music Challenge. (Inspired by the mix-tape request from NASA last week.) Tonight we are looking to (and yes I am quoting Dana Carvey here…) “Pump You Up!”
Okay … let’s just start off with some basic facts. I am not sporty … not even a little bit. I mean I do occasionally play badminton on my back lawn but I was never part of a team which does make me a little sad. I think if I had grown up later I may have played kiddie soccer like today’s little girls do … but my only option was gymnastics or dance … and I chose dance. Anyhoo … I will now get off the childhood therapy couch and get back to tonight’s Music Challenge.
Songs to pump you up…. so I essentially cannot workout without music. Like many people listening to a good song can really get me to go that extra mile on the elliptical. However most songs are just fun songs I enjoy with a strong beat. I like working out to ELO, The Clash, and lots of eighties hits. BUT it has to be said there is one song that really can get me moving if I am dragging and need that extra push. So I have chosen it as my mix-tape song tonight. I have been jamming to this tune for a really long time… (yes even before we all became Queen crazy with the release of Bohemian Rhapsody). It’s such an empowering song … if this one doesn’t get you moving … nothing will. Here is Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now.
What else shall we put on our mix tape … go over to Facebook and tell me your choice.
