Power Songs & Food Prep

Okay dear readers, near and far, help me out! What is your power song? AKA: The song that you just can’t help shaking your booty to and dancing to and puts you in a great mood and you can just listen to over and over again…


That’s the song I want from you. Or songs. Post your answer in the comments so I can add them to my dance party mix — a little midday rejuvenation technique I’m trying.

Also, for local peeps, I’m looking for food prep volunteers on Monday, April 18 (as in, next Monday) to help me get food ready for ROUND FIVE! I’ll start around 11am and go into the afternoon, so the more the merrier. (And heck, maybe there will be a dance party.) You can also reply in the comments if you’re able to cruise over.

Happy Hump Day!

  4. Well, let me see now. I’ve seen several I’d pick so I won’t bother to do a repeat but add to the list. And not in any particular order:

    It’s Not Unusual-Tom Jones
    T-Shirt-Thomas Rhett (I’ve been on a county thing….no judgement)
    I Gotta a Feeling-B.E.P.
    Your Love-The Outfield
    Mexico-James Taylor (He’s great in concert)

    That’s about as much time as I have right now. The food prep is so up in my alley but I can’t do 4/18. I’ll have to check back in on that gig!

  7. Some contemporary choices from me.

    Sorry – The Biebs!
    What do you mean – double Biebs!

    (And btw, there’s a reason people, including me are suddenly bieber fans. Diplo and Skrillex started producing for him.)

    Uptown funk – the other guy, the one Biebs wishes he was.

    1. A haaaa, that makes me feel less dirty about liking him. And yup, got uptown funk already on there — Bruno Mars. The tiniest little man on the planet. It’s like a modern James Brown.


  8. Lonely Boy – The Black Keys
    Boogie on Reggae Woman – Stevie Wonder
    Into The Groove – Madonna
    Age of Consent – New Order
    Music – Joss Stone

  10. I happen to think that the ’80s had some pretty good music. You have to find what really touches you and makes you move. Enjoy!!


  11. Cups from Pitch Perfect (fiona loves it when i drum it on her high chair during feedings)- honestly both pitch perfect soundtracks are a guilty pleasure, so it the soundtrack to Guardians of The Galaxy

    Stolen Dance by milky chance

    You make my dreams come true by haul n oats (personal fav)


  12. this song, Amazing, begins slowly and gradually grows into a song that totally gets me moving. The group, One Eskimo, is one of my faves. If you don’t know them already, look up some others. They may be mello, but they are toe tappers.

    This one, Kandi, is the song that drew me to them.

    I hope you enjoy!!
