Ok, so that is among the most self indulgent and specific reasons ever for a top 5, but it is my blog, so tough. Warning- contains some songs I would never generally consider listenable but that seem wholly appropriate in this context- judge away people, judge away!!
Eye of The Tiger – Survivor
My ‘you can do it’ song to prepare for my panel appearance. Am hoping that Kate from The Naked Mum is going to have a towel and a pep talk ready for me. (or at least a hug, and a tequila!)
Every Loser Wins – Nick Berry
For the BiBs ceremony. And also because it features Nick Berry on a barge, A truly, TRULY awful song, but the sentiment of the title is where I am really coming from, every blogger is an award winner in my eyes, for having the balls to publish your thoughts out there on the interwebs. Bottom line – we are all made of WIN!
Hitchin’ A Ride – Green Day
I haven’t had a few drinks since before I was pregnant with Syd, so this song about being off the wagon seems appropriate for my drinking plans for Friday evening! I will probably have half a margherita then tell everyone I love them, before falling asleep in a pile of coats.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun – Cyndi Lauper
My apologies to the men going….but this is a great party song! As an aside I once dressed as her and sang this song in front of a reasonably large festival crowd. I considered wearing the polka dot mini skirt I wore that day to the BiBs, but chickened out!
And finally my ultimate, get out of the house on any occasion feeling pumped up and ready to go song..
Blitzkrieg Bop – The Ramones
