The Warrior at Work

Vacation is over. Got to get back to work tomorrow. I get to work right about when rosy fingered Dawn is arriving. By the time my first meetings roll around, I’m just so damn perky I can tell my team wants to throw something at me.

Being this f}#%ing cheerful in the morning isn’t easy to pull off. I have a soundtrack. Here it is. See if it makes you want to face the day for the next four years. Let’s start with Madonna:

Here’s the playlist for Standup

That’s Not My Name – The Ting Tings

Wild Child – Iggy Pop 

My Girls – Animal Collective 

The Warrior – Patti Smyth and Scandal 

I Feel Fantastic – Jonathan Coulton

Honky Tonk Woman – Rolling Stones

Tic Tock – Kesha 

Shake It Out – Florence and the Machine

Swim Until You Can’t See Land – Frightened Rabbit
Two other things:

I need a playlist for the treadmill. I kind of fell off the… um… treadmill last summer. It was too hot to run. But after the post holiday rush, I’ll be hitting it again. I’m not taking my clothes off in front of anyone until I burn off the layer of hibernation insulation.

Suggestions welcome. I mean, for the music. So far, I have Jessica by the Allman Brothers.

This highly coveted award goes to the artist with the most infectiously singable tune with the most obscene lyrics. To qualify for this award, this song has to be one you accidentally find yourself singing to in front of your kids as you drive them to school or your elderly aunt (who might actually like that stuff, who knows).

Former recipients include Bruno Mars for Gorilla and Beyonce for Blow.
