My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary.


While twittering away the other day I made the comment:

"Only Frank, Dean, Mel, Nat and Sammy will calm me so I don't slap someone in here today"

After witty banter about the choices we all use to stop from going off at work, I started thinking that I have a list of music for every emotion I feel during a day (thank you Ipod and Pandora), so I've decided to share it with you to invite you further into my crazy, and as a mood ring into my emotions, just in case you see me and I'm playing any of these songs:

If I'm playing:

~"Dancing Queen" ABBA, then I'm probably feeling sad. For some reason this song makes feel better whenever I hear it. When I hear the chorus I want to dance around in circles. So this the best way to get me out of my funk.

~ANYTHING by Frank Sinatra, then I'm probably @ 1omph on my way to 60mph in less than 10 seconds, about to crash. I can hear the first four notes of NY NY and I am fine, slowed down and happy. *Note if I have to be in the office at 8am Frank, Dean, Mel, Sammy and Nat will be in heavy rotation. On a really hectic day I might even Youtube Guys and Dolls.

~Any Pop song, but lately Brittney Spears "Circus" and that God awful Timberland song about being broke (don't judge me!) then I am in a silly mood. For some reason when the the guy says "Baby Girl, I don't got a roomy house I rent a room in a house" it sends me into a fit of laughter. I just think that is too funny.

~"I like to Move it Move it", Then CJ has somehow once again figured out how to push the keys on my laptop and has gone back to that song so he can breakdance. How did he even figure that out?

~ "Watch what you say to me" by T.I. Then The Mr has annoyed me to a point of no return today. I will also add to that "sometimes" Bilal because if I didn't have home training this blog would be created from Rikers Island.

~Any Beres Hammond song or song from the hot 1992 Dancehall craze, I'm in the mood to party, wine my hips and drink a nice bottle of red stripe (well not really a red stripe but you know). These were some of the best times of my life so I like to relive them through the music. And anyone that's been out to a club with me knows that if I hear this song:



The shoes are coming off and damn sweating out my hair. I'm going to act a damn fool.

Lastly but most importantly IF I AM PLAYING:
~ Ready to Die, not one song but the entire CD your best bet is to not make eye contact, and back out of the room slowly. Its my I don't want to go to jail CD need I say more....

Isn't it fascinating how kiddies can figure out how to get what they want no matter what the hell it is.

Now that I think about it Dancing Queen does feed into that feeling.
