a couple of weeks ago, i added something new to my morning ritual. ritual? well yes, i think you can call it that. some sort of routine of things performed daily, although in my case, not necessarily starting at the same time every day. you know.. check email, have a cup of tea, go to the bathroom.. but forget about that for now..

this new addition goes something like this:
i put on a song, which i play two or three times in a row. and i can do whatever i want on it. usually, it's a combination of stretching exercises and dancing, but other things can be part of it as well. i can sing, yell, curse and swear as much as i want or need to. sometimes i may even throw things, but mostly non-breakable stuff..

you see, there are no actual rules, except that this is a workdays-only thing. also, the same song, one that doesn't necessarily reflect my taste in music, is used for one week only. trust me, this is a great way to vent one's emotions and really prepare you for the day ahead.

this week's song?
i'm not going to upload it, but here's the video:

I love how Europe gets pop culture five years later! It's like a time warp!

Very cool though, considering I'm posting mp3s from the 1960s, 70s and 80s!

Wonder if these girls are still in the music biz?

excuse me? europe gets pop culture five years later? haha!
but anyway, this is from 2002 and i think it's more like a novelty song than anything else.

aslkdjflasjf that song. omg. that brings back memories. a friend and I used to always always do the dance to that when we were out clubbing and it came on. oh man. we had so many giggles asking the DJs to play silly songs so that we could do the silly dances to them!

Thank you. That made me smile, even though it was unintentional. <3

/me loves to make manda smile.. :)

& talking about silly dances.. remember this one? i might use it as next week's song (but i do promise not to post it in my journal) *g*

Hahahaha, omg. That song is just a liiiiittle bit before my time, but yes I remember it. ^_^

I do think, however, that you should consider this.

I taught my dad and half his family the dance for this one at his 40th. I was 16 at the time. ^_^

The chorus reminds me of Rapper's Delight.

it works great to get things out of your system, off of your mind, well at least for me.. just be prepared to get weird looks from anyone else in the house at first. no worries, after a while they'll just ignore it.. :p

Aug. 23rd, 2007 04:08 pm (UTC)

tamar, i watched the video before i read what this was about. i shouldn't have done that. you got me a little worried for a moment. but then i read the same song, one that doesn't necessarily reflect my taste in music and things were alright again. :=)
