30 Day Writing Challenge: Day 7

List FIVE songs you’re loving right now:

  1. “Run” by One Republic
    • This is primed to be my favorite treadmill song soon; it has so much energy to it and hearing the word “run” throughout, keeps me going!
  2. The Ma Ya Hi Song- English Version [Originally called O-zone by Dragostea Din Tei]
    • I first heard the original non-English version of this song on the radio in Japan in 2005. One day I was having lunch with a Japanese friend, the song came on over the restaurant speakers… and I asked her, “Do you recognize this language?” (I knew it wasn’t Spanish or Japanese… and she had no clue either.) Before I could learn the name of it, the song disappeared off the face of the earth… and there was no way for me to look it up. Out of the blue, an English version was in a new Netflix movie called “The Mitchells vs. The Machines” (released this year), and now my kids ask me to play it every day…. instant dance party! (With a touch of nostalgia.)
  3. Blinding Lights by The Weeknd
    • Again… the energy of this song is just fantastic. It is less about the words and all about the music/beat. Another treadmill fav!
  4. Take On Me by a-ha
    • This is my go-to playlist song and is on every treadmill/run mix I make. It is one of my favorite 80’s songs!
  5. Corona Virus Anthem – a parody by Ajay Stephens
    • Oh my goodness… I JUST found this song a month or two ago… I wish I’d found it earlier. It just makes me smile… as someone who was genuinely concerned and took all-of-the-precautions, this is kind of the thing I can smile about… now that there is some relief in sight and we move toward “more normal”. Also… I love the original Maroon 5 song it parodies, so… there is that too.

I would love to hear what you thought!
