I'm in need of assistance here. See, it's Friday, and I've got fun waiting for me, but I have un-fun things to do first. And, perhaps because I'm not very grown-up yet, or because I'm merely human, or for whatever reason, I'm lacking motivation to get the stuff done I have to do, so that I can move on to the things I want to do.
I want to skip to the end, like eating ice cream for breakfast.
Not that I've ever done that. And, hypothetically speaking, if I had done that, it's really not like music would have helped. Hypothetically, of course.
But today, it feels like music would help. The problem: ever since music started costing money (i.e.- napster became illegal and disappeared/went legit), I haven't really added any songs to my music collection. And, curiously enough, the music I found inspiring back then (uhm, at... 14?) is not really doing it for me any more.
Enter you. What music really gets you inspired, gets you moving? I'm talking fast-paced, exciting, non-explicit music that I can rock out to on my headphones whilst getting crap done. I recently got a gift card in the mail from the Blood Donation Center or Red Cross or somewhere for 5 free songs, to thank me for giving blood. Hi, have we met? I'm an American Hero.
|Yes I have a Zune.|
No, I don't wish it was an iPod.
Crazy Train (Black Sabbath)
Foreplay/Long Time (Boston)
Eye of the Tiger (Journey)
I Got a Feeling & Pump It (Black-Eyed Peas)
Rock You Like a Hurricane (Scorpions)
We Built This City (Starship)
Centerfold (The J. Geils Band)
So this should give you an idea of where I'm starting from. Yes, I know only two of those songs were actually recorded while I was alive. I can't help that I'm ahead of my time. I'm not opposed to new music, I just never really know what to look for. I only know about the 'Peas because of Sunday/Monday night football.
Grateful for your assistance,
