Introducing Monday Mixtape!
Sharing songs that motivate you to move! An eclectic mix to help you as you move through your journey.
I am a lover of powerful uplifting music, and I found it can alter your mood in such a positive way. I decided I will share my Monday Mixtape each Monday in hopes of starting your week off strong to move through whatever is to come your way.
Dance like there is no one watching:-)
Please note these songs shared are in no particular order.
1. My get it moving in the morning jam… Let me clear my throat! – DJ Kool
No matter how long it’s been, when I hear this song I instantly start to move! It’s a classic that will always make me feel good.
2. Don’t Stop Believing – Journey
I love this song and it pushes me to continue to believe.
3. Welcome to the Good Life! – Kanye West ft. T-Pain
I go for mine… I got to shine 🙂
4. Push it – Salt-N-Pepa
“Salt-N-Pepa’s here and we’re in effect want you to push it good. Coolin’ by day then at night… working up a sweat!” LOL! I still know all the words. And here is another confession… I listen to the Salt-N-Pepa Pandora station faithfully during my drive to work. It gets me ready.
5. Don’t Stop ’til you get enough – THE ONE AND ONLY MJ
Now I will admit, Michael Jackson has many songs that will get you to move… this is just one of many I enjoy! He was so the man I wanted to marry when I was younger. I remember when the Michael Jackson experience came out I was so proud to beat my nieces and nephew on that game. I knew all the moves.
6. Countdown – Beyonce’
Just like MJ, Bey has MANY move your butt songs! I have a devoted workout playlist to my girl Beyonce’ in keeping with the theme to only post one on this list I went with Countdown. Favorite line: “Me and my boo, in my boo coup ridin’ all up in the black with his chick right beside him…”
7. Last Dance – Donna Sommer
Starts off smooth but then… 🙂
8. I’m coming out – Diana Ross
My ultimate theme song! HA! It debut the year I was born so it kind of makes sense.
9. Brave – Sara Bareilles
Such an uplifting song that I’ve played in my TGIM -Kisha’s Life Lessons on occasion. I LOVE THE WORDS SO MUCH! I swear every time I hear this song and I begin to dance like I’m Beyonce’, I shed tears of joy… every time!
10. Just Fine – MJB
This has such a great beat and “I wouldn’t change my life because my life is just fine” lyrics speak exactly to how I feel at this very moment.
