Rainy Days and Mondays
Hope everyone had a nice holiday!
Ironically, our area of Colorado had a ban on fires and fireworks over the 4th, and it rained for 6 hours straight last night. So even if there hadn't been a ban, we would have been rained out anyway.
I had a house full of bummed-out young men and eternally grateful dogs.
We were in the car this morning, and I was thinking about how gray days always seem to be so depressing.
Then one of my old favorite songs came on the radio.
In moments I was be-bopping along to Wild Cherry's "Play That Funky Music" and feeling great. The guys were squinching down in their seats in mortification, but I didn't care!
So I thought of 10 songs that ALWAYS put a smile on my face, a hop in my step and junk in my trunk.
Wait a minute.
The junk comes from cheesecake bites. Never mind.
In no particular order:
Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leppard
Mony Mony (the Billy Idol version)
Magic Carpet Ride by Steppenwolf
You Sexy Thing by Hot Chocolate
Bad Girls by Donna Summer
Rubberband Man by The Spinners
Smooth by Carlos Santana and Rob Thomas
Should I Stay or Should I Go? by The Clash
Tubthumping by Chumbawamba
You Better Be Good To Me by Tina Turner
How about you? What's guaranteed to put a smile on your face and/or embarrass the kids/spouse when you start shaking your booty?
