Interesting Slimmerkiwi, Your comment is an example of just how individually we feel about music and the ways it resonates or not. That song was on my ipod playlist and it is easy to recall many times when my walk felt too long and the hill to steep and that song came on and gave me the burst of energy most welcome for the time.
Will look up what his new name is and 'yes' he is gorgeous!
Enjoyed your thoughts emoticon

Terence Trent D'Arby now goes by another name (legally changed it). I don't find the song/music motivational,even for moving, but MAN, was he GORGEOUS or WHAT emoticon emoticon

I just remembered this one. It isn't motivational as such, however it is motivational in that you really want to move LOL! I can remember years ago bringing my teenage kids home from town, and I had some other kids in the car too. We played this all the way home, bopping away in the car LOL! Anyone following us would have thought we were M.A.D.!!!!

Hey, "You Gotta Be" is on my playlist too!

More or less in that genre, I also have:
"Unwritten" by Natasha Bedingfield
"Soak Up the Sun" by Cheryl Crow
"I Hope You Dance" Lee Anne Womack

From my more heart-pounding No Excuses playlist, I also listen to:
"Dreams" by Van Halen
"Don't Look Back" by Boston
"Hang Tough" by Tesla
"Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor
"Get Up" by Va Halen


The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

One of my daily goals is to listen to a song that makes me want to get up and get moving; only a week in and realizing I just don't know a lot of music! Here's what I've done so far (in case it's helpful to others), but please don't feel restricted in genre because of what I've put up already:

Baby Day (1971) Melanie
You Gotta Be (1994) Des'Ree
Secret O' Life (1977) James Taylor
It's A Good Day (1946) Peggy Lee
Personality (1945) Johnny Mercer & The Pied Pipers
Accentuate the Positive (2008) John Boutte, feat. Paul Sanchez
