The Music That Gets Me Excited

I am not sure about you but I am really excited 2018 is here and we are moving forward once again. 2017 wasn’t horrible but it felt very draining to me. I am glad that I am able to move on now. So to keep my forward moving happy momentum, here are 5 songs.

What are songs that get you excited?

  1. The Pointer Sisters: I’m So Excited
  2. Three Dog Night: Joy to the World
  3. Hot Chocolate: You Sexy Thing
  4. Wham!: Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go
  5. Jackie Wilson: Your Love (Lifting Me Higher)

Peaceful Slumber

I don’t know about you but sleep is escaping me right now. I am very busy at the office with year-end items. At the same time I am trying to get into the holiday spirit by making gifts for neighbors, planning holiday activities and just getting ready in general for Christmas day. I have decided that I need to take 5 minutes every night, before crawling into bed, to unwind with some quiet Christmas music that is guaranteed to bring visions of dancing sugar plums.

Early Christmas Music You Can Get Away With

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone most people aren’t going to look at you weird if you want to listen to Christmas music prior to December 1st. I sit on the fence with Christmas music before December. Some years, I really need the good feelings that Christmas music brings to my heart and I need it sooner rather than later. That means I fluctuate between Black Friday and December 1st as my Christmas music start date. This year . . . I could use some of the music a little earlier but just to make sure I don’t get the rolling of eyes, here are 5 songs that are apart of Christmas albums (or should be) but aren’t necessarily “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”.
