Day 7/6 Countdown to Executive Secretary Live- Music.Mayhem.Motivation.

Today was all about music for me.

When I’m staring at a tough deadline (like being out of the office for a solid week and have to get it all done) and I have to focus to get it done, I have to have music.

One of the things I love to do… and hope to do while at #ExecSecLive is to gather from each attendee, the name of THE song.. the song that makes their heart happy.. makes them immediately want to hit the dance floor, or jump starts their day.  I’ll gather all the titles and create an iTunes playlist for the attendees– and they can always consider this their very own #ExecSecLive playlist.

So what are my go- to tunes to get me going?

Artist Name                    Title
Gap Band                             Party Train
MC Hammer                       Too Legit To Quit
Rage Against the                Renegades of Funk

Missy Elliott                        Music Makes Me Lose Control
Bruno Mars                         Uptown Funk
Commodores                      Brick House
Chuck Brown                      Money (is a friend of mine)
Avicii                                    Blessed
Johnny Kemp                    Just Got Paid
U2                                        Desire
No Doubt                            I’m Just a Girl

If the music is for focus– I go with classical– Yo-Yo Ma or any piano concertos.
If it’s just background, I usually have the movie soundtrack for ‘Garden State’ playing on a loop. It’s my favorite.

That’s a pretty good start on my list.
Music is a joy to me. I can’t sing. But I can dance.. not too badly, either!
Enjoy the weekend. #ExecSecLive will be here before you know it.

  1. Uptown Funk for me, currently. Anything by Parliament-Funkadelic. I also like the ones on your list; jams for sure. Jazz and classical for concentration.
