Thursday’s can be stressful. They can be busy and overwhelming. But, at least they are Friday adjacent. “Friday Eve” may push your limits to the edge, but on the other side is the promise of the weekend. So, bring it on Thursday, crowd my space and time and capacity, I can take it because Friday is waiting for me when today ends. If you are having THAT kind of Thursday maybe this Mix of 5 will help. It is definitely helping me today.
Plug in. Press Play. Turn Up the Volume. Sing-A-Long.
Song 1 is one of my favorite INXS’ songs of all time – “Shine Like It Does”. From the very first strums of the guitar to Michael Hutchence’s first lyrical lines, I feel better. I really love this song. Then next its The Cars with their hit “Just What I Needed”. This one is IMPOSSIBLE not to sing-a-long to. “Parklife” from Blur is up next. This is one of my feel-better, re-energize, motivation songs. So yes, I turned it way up. You should, too. Track 4 is another TURN UP LOUD song – Supergrass’ “Caught By the Fuzz”. And, to wrap it all up, Space’s “Female of the Species” comes on. How can you not be in a good mood to this song? IMPOSSIBLE!
Come on and have a listen to today’s Top 5 songs. They are helping me pull through to Friday, and keep my head above water, so to speak. Let these 5 songs be a life raft for you, too. Click the Spotify and YouTube links above to hear today’s Top 5, as well as the rest of the week, as it unfolds. Don’t miss a single day!
Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day – 10/12/17
1. “Shine Like It Does” by INXS
“And, from each moment,
all that is left –
sleep of the innocent.
Just one desire.”
2. “Just What I Needed” by The Cars
“I don’t mind you hangin’ out,
and talkin’ in your sleep.
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been,
as long as it was deep.”
3. “Parklife” by Blur
“I get up when I want except on Wednesdays when I get rudely awakened by the dustmen.
I put my trousers on,
have a cup of tea,
and I think about leaving the house
4. “Caught by the Fuzz” by Supergrass
“Caught by the fuzz,
well, I was still on the bus,
in the back of the van with my head in my hands.
Just like a bad dream,
I was only fifteen.”
5. “Female of the Species” by Space
“Oh, she deals in witchcraft,
and one kiss,
and I’m zapped.”
