MONDAY MOTIVATION MIX: TIN SHINGLE'S ASHLEY BROUSSARD
Waka Waka(This time for Africa) > Shakira
Every time I hear this, I first of all get excited, as I soon will be on an amazing trip to Africa! However, the song's composition is just full of life and energy. It immediately gets me moving, whether at my desk or in my running shoes.
I'm Not Ready To Make Nice > Dixie Chicks
They have been a long time favorite band of mine, as I am secretly a country girl at heart. This track however, is just completely powerful. The lyrics, arrangement, and instrumentals stir up emotion and strength. I love that about it.
MTA > Kingston Trio
This song is purely a favorite as it will always be a huge part of my childhood and life long memory. It reminds me of the best city in the world and my home-Boston! Always remember your roots. I think it keeps us all grounded and balanced. Besides the fiddle is upbeat and I can belt it out in my home office without anyone knowing!
Video > India.Arie
This is my feel good song. My pick me up. When I am feeling defeated, down, or unappreciated this song comes to mind. Success is not determined by how much money we make, how many clients we have or really how "far" our business has gone. Success is about what kind of person we are, how we can showcase that to others and affect their life for the better.
Coming Home > John Legend
First of all : Amazing Vocals, Amazing Lyrics, and Amazing Performer. Raw talent is most certainly displayed in his music. This particular song has vitality to me. The heartbeat in the background has a soothing but motivating affect. I like it. :)
The Piano Guys
All of their music is AH MA ZING! Really and truly if you have not heard about these guys, stop, and google them. This is my thinking music, my reading emails music, my "its time to take a clarifying breath music." I tried to narrow down one track but, I just couldn't. They have many original compositions and also cover popular songs which they have rearranged. The instrumentals are truly powerful and captivating.
