Mundane Monday Morning Music: Aerosmith – ”Dream On”

Mornin’ Readers!

It’s a blurry Monday morning for me. It’s not the foggy, nor are there gray skies. I am groggy and sleepy. It was a long day for me yesterday, only for it to roll into an even a longer night. My day didn’t end until the next day. It took me forever to pass out into Dreamland.

This week’s MMMM pick was inspired by a chance flick of the remote for the TV yesterday morning. While the bosses were getting their fill of cartoons, I accidentally the channel to one of the audio-only radio stations. The song that was playing woke us parental figures up, rockin’ out at our dining table while eating breakfast and sparking a discussion about our favourite hair bands. Which song was it, you ask? It was Aerosmith’s ”Dream On.”

Though ” Dream On” is not a peppy song, it is an inspiring one.  It is all about going after your dreams and learning from your mistakes. This is a life-long lesson to live by. How can you not love this message? I also love when this song kicks when the chorus starts and builds from that point on. This song got to not only get going on everything I have to do this morning, but it has helped to fuel my passion to accomplish the goals I have for myself. I really have to remember to add this song to my workout music mix to kick my butt into gear. This song will be on repeat all day long in my head (Woo Hoo!!!!!).

I hope that ”Dream On” inspires you to achieve whatever goal you have, whether it is to go after your dreams, or to even roll out of bed on this mundane Monday morning.

Until my next post, Readers!

Mundane Monday Morning Music: The Birthday Edition

Morning Readers!

As spring is now upon us and the Easter Weekend comes to an end, I am so happy that I am getting to start to celebrate my birthday this week! I like doing little things over the next week to make my birthday feel that much more fun and special.

Reese Speaks Birthday Pic 2

For this week’s MMMM, I decided to choose a few of my fav B-Day songs that are fun and will start off this week in an awesome way!

I love the Beatles, and the “Birthday” song from The Beatles or “The White Album” is a fun one to listen to!

 

For more of a chair-dancing experience, I added Katy Perry’s “Birthday” song. Who would not want to be treated like every day is your birthday?!

 

Of course, being the HUGE Stevie Wonder fan I am, I HAD to had his version of “Happy Birthday” on this list of birthday songs!” A birthday is not a birthday for me listening to it about 40 times on repeat! 😛

It will be a fun week, and I can’t wait until the big day arrives and all of the surprises that are in store for me. These songs are certainly putting me into the birthday spirit!

I hope that these songs make your day a little bit brighter and make you smile today!

What is your favourite version of “The Birthday Song” to hear on your special day?

Mundane Monday Morning Music: David Bowe – “Oh! You Pretty Things”

Mornin’ Readers!

I was actually not in bad shape this morning. I guess the “bosses” are getting in good shape! I was able to navigate my way down, get them happy and fed, and get my initial Monday morning to-do list completed early! THAT is an accomplishment in my books!

I even had time to think about what I wanted to listen to on this week’s MMMM pick. My other half had us listening to 70s Brit Rock last week, and we had a ball singing and dancing to some of the iconic songs these artists created. Bowie is one of our favs from this period in music history, and I thought I’d share more of his music with you this morning! This time, I chose “Oh! You Pretty Things.” I don’t know what it is about this song, but once it’s playing, I’m instantly in a good mood. Most Bowie songs are fab, but this one in particular just flips the Happy Switch every time, and it’s a great way to start off the last month of winter!

I hope that “Oh! You Pretty Things” flips the Happy Switch for you, and that your mundane Monday morning gets better after listening to this song!

Mundane Monday Morning Music: James Brown – “Sex Machine”

Mornin’ Readers!

The snow is falling this morning in Canada’s capital, and that has made for a few grouchy drivers as they rolled past my front window. Just about everyone at my home was not too thrilled to get out of bed to greet the day and get on with the work and school week, either.

For today’s MMMM pick, I turned to an artist who I knew could shake the fog out of my sleepy head and get me in a better mood: James Brown. I chose “Sex Machine” because the song gets you on your feet with its lick of “Get On Up,” and the beat makes me want to move! James Brown worked hard to get people dancing, and this song does the trick! “Sex Machine” is also a high energy song, so it gives me the boost I need to want to get on up and keep going for the day.

I hope that “Sex Machine” gets you going and smiling for the day on this mundane Monday morning!

Mundane Monday Morning Music: David Bowie – Changes

Mornin’ Readers!

I know I have been talking about summer being over for a while, but today is the official last day of summer before fall comes and ushers in its blustery, unpredictable weather.  We have been getting a preview of this weather and it hasn’t been great.  😦

Since today is about to bring some changes along with it, I thought that “Changes” by David Bowie was the perfect song for this week’s MMMM pick.  I REALLY needed a song that would lift my spirits this indecisively gloomy day, and with Bowie being one of my all-time favourite Brit musicians, I thought that one of his songs would brighten my day. “Changes” is also helping me to get myself in gear for the rest of this work week, as it’s going to be a busy one!

I hope that “Changes” will help to lift your spirits and get you going this morning!

Until my next post, Readers!

Mundane Monday Morning Music: James Brown – Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag

Hey Readers!

I know, I’ve kind of been MIA for the past week.  I’m back, and I thought this James Brown song would help all of us get into a good mood since the weekend is over.

I hope that today’s pick will make you smile and get moving and grooving!

Until my next post, Readers!

Mundane Monday Morning Music: Stevie Wonder – Superstition

http://youtu.be/0CFuCYNx-1gHey Readers!

I had a VERY hard time waking up this morning. I also had a hard time choosing this morning’s song for this feature.  I ultimately went with one of my go-to songs that makes me happy whenever I hear it.  I’m a huge Stevie Wonder fan (I love him! He’s simply an amazing musician.), and Superstition is one of my all-time favourite songs he sings.

If you need a pick-me-up, like I did this morning, hit the play button above, and let Superstition make you a little more ready for this work week!

Until my next post, Readers!
