Music Lovin’ Monday

Whether you’re going back to school, riding out the brutal winter weather, or trying to figure out exactly what direction your life is headed in, I think we’re all in need of a little motivation this week. That being said, here’s a selection that has always given me a boost, whether it be recent or from a past decade. Enjoy!

My Songs Know What You Did in The Dark-Fall Out Boy

-This reminds me of when the Blackhawks were playing for the Stanley Cup over the summer; it was always on during the promo commercials. 


-I love the message of this: that risk is always followed by the possibility of getting hurt, but pain doesn’t have to mean that something (or life entirely) is over.

Fighter-Christina Aguilera

-Even though this is more about a relationship, it still makes my adrenaline go up.

People Like Us-Kelly Clarkson

-A reminder that while we all have different experiences, everyone does struggle and starts at the bottom at some point.

Dream On-Aerosmith 

-This one is often at the top of my workout playlist and gives me the chills every time it plays at the end of the movie, Miracle.

Roar-Katy Perry

-Admittedly I was not a huge fan of hers until recently, and though it came out in the last year, I think this will end up being my anthem for a lot of different reasons. I have to start looking at myself in a way that I don’t usually do, which is scary and empowering at the same time. Overall, I’ll probably surprise myself in the process!

Counting Stars-OneRepublic

-Yes this is a repeat, but I thought it was appropriate for those of us of are currently or have been looking for a job, particularly those of us who are graduating this spring. In this economy, there’s always the question of how (and when) you’ll be able to fully support yourself, and what a relief it will be when you can.

While there’s plenty more to choose from, these are the ones that come to mind. Have an amazing week, and be safe if you have to endure the painfully cold temperatures or snow!
