So, if you have no idea what I'm talking about, let me sum it up for you: this is a thing we do where we share our thoughts on music based (sometimes very loosely) around a theme.
And there's even a linky.
So, here goes the mix tape to kick off 2015: the Musical Resolutions Edition.
Hmm. Well, I'm not sure if I really make resolutions so much anymore, but I do have ideas of what I need to get done in the upcoming year. Whatever, yeah, so I guess that means I do have resolutions.
But I've been listening to podcasts lately. I got completely hooked. This is what a midlife crisis sounds like: a whole lotta NPR. I listened to music most often when I'm driving or running but podcasts when I walk. Since I've been doing more walking than running, it's been more podcasts. And then when I don't finish it over the walk, I finish it in the car. Talk radio took over my life, so much so that I realized today that for the past month I've listened to like three songs in entirety. My 10-year-old daughter even commandeered my iPod and when she did, she played KONGOS ("Come With Me Now"), which we used to listen to frequently, loudly and happily.
She totally snapped me out of that no music funk.
So here are the songs that I will listen to to find my motivation this month.
Where is your motivation?

So now, you should totally play along. What music is motivating you to meet your goals this year? I'd totally love to know. And if I did all the code correctly, you should see the link-up right below this short paragraph, where you can join up with your own mix tape. And you totally should. Maybe make it a resolution.
