Having just got back from Montana, I’m running a bit behind on everything, but I’m working on catching up, really I am!
In the meantime, rumor has it that it’s Motivational Music Monday over at 50 in 50 Marathon Quest! That means it’s time to share a song that you are enjoying this week, possibly one that is making you move… or boogie…
I haven’t had the chance to write about what a good time Missoula was yet; however, in case you were wondering, yes, I finished my half-marathon! I’m still suffering a bit from the plantar fasciitis, but it’s getting better now thanks to some wonderful advice I got, so all I can say about what’s to come for me in the future… well… hey…
What time is it?!! It’s time for Jamesy’s Motivational Music Monday! It’s time to search those playlists and post what floats your boat!! One day James will actually create the linky link thing, but in the meantime, put your video link in the comment section on his site so we can all see what makes you happy, gets you running or walking, or just plain puts a spring in your step!
When James told me he was going to post a rap song (you have to visit his site to actually see what rapper gets that metal head out and running), there was one song that came to my mind instantly. Now, most of you know that Buble is my boy; however, back in the eighties, George Michael was above and beyond my favorite of favorites.
Like most American kids/tweens/teenagers, I watched American Bandstand and Soul Train every Saturday morning (after Bugs Bunny, of course), and this is where I first saw Wham! They performed this song (Wham Rap!), they were dressed exactly how they were dressed in the video, and they even danced the same way. Ahhh, such entertainment! 🙂
This song is full of energy and still gets my blood pumping and my legs moving! It’s nice that not everything changes. Watch the video. If you know the song, see if it doesn’t bring a smile to your face after all these years. And if you don’t know it, I would still bet the video puts a smile on your face… if for no other reason than how fabulous the clothes and hair were back then! (George is sporting a tail, hehe) Enjoy!!
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:
