Motivational Music Monday — Walk!

It’s time for Jamesy’s MMM linkup at 50 in 50 Marathon Quest, calling forth for all motivational or not-so-motivational music to be posted for those of us in need of some new or different types of sound.  Go visit his site and post a rockin’ good (or bad) song in the comments!

He’s crunching a bit this week (courtesy of our son… seriously, go check it out), so I thought maybe I’d follow suit.

Many many moons ago, back when AJ was a baby, James and I would watch Metal Mania on VH1 and kind of play a little game to it (AJ was a baby, so he slept through all that noise).  Anyway, we’d guess what was up next, rate the songs on a scale, make bets, and so on and so forth… you know, stuff that every normal set of new parents do when their baby is sleeping.

I’m a Michael Buble type of girl, so heavy metal was not my thing.  I really only watched it for all the great hair bands from the ’80s.  I’d become disgusted when Pantera, Type O Negative, Motorhead, Megadeth, Metallica, etc., would come on… I hated the crunch, and the noise, and the complete lack of music that made these artists millions of dollars.

Fast forward 10 years… most of these artists are now on at least one of my many playlists in some form or another.  One of my… favorites… has been Walk by Pantera.  I’m sure there’s some deep, dark, hidden meaning behind this song that I have yet to figure out… all I know is that I like to play it while I’m attemping Mo Fo Hill… it actually pumps me up and gets the blood moving.

So, without further adieu, I present Walk…  enjoy!  😛

Did you ever watch the classics on VH1?  Do you have a favorite song from the “classic” era? One of my favorites was Unskinny Bop by Poison… Bret Michaels had THE most gorgeous lipstick! 

Motivation Monday

Today is Motivation Monday… here, there, and everywhere… so I wanna play too.

First, I’m linking up with James at 50 in 50 Marathon Quest for his Motivational Music Monday theme. He’s posted a classic song from the ’70s, but I’m going to go with something just a bit more modern… well, as modern as you can get with my boy Michael Bublé.  Yeah, that’s right, I said it… he’s my boy.  Everyone who knows me knows it, so you may as well know it too just in case you didn’t already know it.

This song puts a spring in my step every time I’m out on a run and it comes on.  It’s a fun little ditty, a great FU song (perdone mi French), and a great pacer.  And it’s Michael Bublé, so of course it’s great.

As for Twitter and #MotivationMonday, I give you this:
