And in honor of this being only a 3-day work week for me, and probably for a lot of my blogging friends, it’s time to take a boogie break!! (Because let’s face it… are you really motivated to work today?) So turn up the music, get the blood flowing and shake what your mama gave you!!
Who remembers this song from the ’70s? Lord have mercy… my feet don’t want to stay still! (Okay, maybe it’s more the chocolate coffee as opposed to the cheesy ’70s video, but I think you get the point!)
James has posted his weekly update and MMM song over at 50 in 50 Marathon Quest, so it’s time for me to follow suit.
Ed Sheeran… know this guy? He’s tearing up the charts worldwide right now. He recently released his latest album, ÷ (Divide), and in the UK, he currently occupies 9 of the top 10 spots on the Billboard Top 100. I’m not quite sure how they configure this… maybe it’s the top downloads for the week, and as his album was just released, that would make sense. Regardless, the number one song in the world is “Shape Of You.”
Have you heard it yet? Probably, yes. Overplayed? Definitely, yes. A great tune? Without a doubt. It’s also my song choice of the week.
While the song itself has nothing to do with shapes or sizes of bodies, the words “I’m in love with the shape of you” are powerful… especially in this day and age of Photoshop and body shaming. Which makes me love the song all the more.
