Mundane Monday Morning Music: Cyndi Lauper – “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Hey Readers!

I know, I’ve been away too long! The holidays, then the start of the New Year have really disoriented me, and, unfortunately, this feature became neglected the chaos. Thankfully, I carved out some time this morning to get back on devout some time to posting a new song to start off the year right.

Some of my fellow bloggers have posed the question, “What word would you use to describe your year?” After a bit of thought and an impromptu family dance session with my family last night of 80s music, I came up with my word of 2016. It is fun. Whether it be in learning, becoming more successful or getting out more, I want to have fun doing it. Besides, what’s the point of living without enjoying the journey you’re on?

Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” encompasses my sense of fun and is such an amazing song to use to start off 2016 for this feature! Besides its unforgettable beat, the lyrics are all about girl empowerment. Lauper is encouraging her parents to not treat her differently because she is a girl. She is also saying that girls should not shy away from their greatness and should be allowed to shine.

So I have decided to take a page from Cyndi Lauper’s playbook this year and have fun, no matter what I’m doing and to make me a better me this year! I hope that “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”has inspired you to be your best you, to have fun, and to take the blahs away on this mundane Monday morning.

Do you have a word that would describe how you want to live this year, or your life?

Until my next post, Readers!

Mundane Monday Morning Music: Cyndi Lauper: “Girls Just Want To Have Fun”

Mornin’ Readers!

After my whirlwind weekend at the BConnected Conference here in the national capital region of Canada, I am bushed! I was energized by the sessions and the Wine and Cheese Networking Party, but you do loose some energy taking in all of information and fun!

Another fun part of this past weekend was the After Party by some of the bloggers of this conference (Thanks Ann and Kristen!). It made the weekend even more fun and memorable! This party also helped to inspire this week’s MMMM pick. I chose Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want To Have Fun.” Nothing says party time more than snacks, candy, “party drinks,” and playing Cards Against Humanity with Hello Kitty paraphernalia and glitter! The ladies and the conference’s webmaster (the lone male in the room for most of the night) had so much fun laughing and chatting away throughout the night. It was an experience I will not forget and I am glad I was invited to be a part of the fun! This song really captures the spirit of that night!

I hope that “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” helps you to stir up fun memories of times gone by with great friends! If it doesn’t, then it is also a great song to belt out at the top of your lungs!

Until my next post, Readers!
