“Hey big girl, make ‘em back it up. Make ‘em back it up. Wobble baby wobble baby wobble baby wobble.” From the prophetic words of V.I.C., I was deeply inspired. I had a few thoughts while running it out on the treadmill. 1. Was I too old to be in a music video? 2. If I were to audition, would I qualify to play the big girl? I deeply wanted the lead…. 3. Wow. There is a serious jazz funeral influence on this song, and I want to know more about jazz funerals.
Itunes has changed the way we live. You can pick and choose the songs you want and create your own albums from home. Brilliant. For a mere $1.29, you can have any song you want. I find that I do my very best thinking when I hit the pavement or treadmill. Any time I need to have a serious creative session or mood boost, I grab my headphones and take off. I genuinely survived the ivf process with a pair of hot pink running shoes and head phones. I end up drawn to 1 song and listen to it over and over while I work out solutions or ideas in my head. This blog was created listening to “Wobble” and my husband’s innovative thinking. This morning while T napped, I came up with several possibilities for creative outlets and projects for myself. Most of the time these ideas are too over-the-top for my day to day life, but they provide fun thinking time and I always exercise longer than planned. Give yourself some ‘me’ time and get your juices flowing. Here is what was on my playlist today.
“LA Song” by Beth Hart. I decided I needed to learn this song for any future karaoke time. I had some good arm movements to accentuate key phrases.
“Closer” by Tegan and Sara. Fantastic beats for models walking in a fashion show.
“Love Somebody” by Maroon 5. Adam Levine keeps me on the treadmill.
“Wobble” by V.I.C. I actually got an extra workout as I had to get off the treadmill to do my best wobble dance when this was on. Go abs.
