Like I mentioned earlier, February is my least favorite month, because it’s weird. It’s appropriate that this week’s Twisted Mixed Tape is all about staying motivated. I know I need some to get me through this weird month. Last month was all about starting fresh, making changes. This month is about keeping the momentum up from last month,and hopefully we can keep it up through the year.
Kevin Rudolf- Let it Rock
I love the driving beat in this song. It’s never failed to get me motivated to do those last few sets at the gym. Heck, gym aside, this song can keep me going through the day.
Timbaland- The Way I Are
This song came out around the same time as Let it Rock. Just like it, I love the beat of this song. These two songs are several years old, yet I never get sick of them. I really need to find more songs like these two because years later, they still keep me going.
Christina Aguilera- Fighter
This song has helped me out through many things. A bad breakup, the end of a friendship, even when I’m having a bad day. Just the chorus alone is all I need to get me through. Thank you Christina for helping me through some rough times!
Bon Jovi- Livin on a Prayer
Ok, do I really need to explain this one? It’s only one of the best stadium anthems out there. I’ve been blessed to sing along with this one not once, but twice at two Bon Jovi concerts. A very close friend of mine introduced me to Bon Jovi in high school. I moved the following year, but every time I turned my Bon Jovi, it was comforting. It let me know everything was going to be ok. I could list more Bon Jovi songs on here, but that wouldn’t be much of a mixed tape eh?
Idina Menzel- Defying Gravity
I loved this song the minute I heard it on Broadway. I also love this pop version Idina sings. There’s just something about this song that makes me want to get out there and take on the world. I really can’t put my finger on it, but I suppose it’s how Idina sings like she’s unstoppable, and sometimes I think I am too.
