What kind of music gets you totally pumped up? I’m talking about the kind of songs where, when you put them on, you totally can’t help but dance around your living room because they are so rockingly awesome.
Very near the top of my list would be “Birdhouse In Your Soul” by They Might Be Giants. I don’t know what it is about that song, but I put it on and I then I end up looking like an absolute fool in my living room. Also very high on the list is TMBG’s version of “Istanbul, Not Constantinople.” It is just so catchy!
Also on my list would be:
- almost anything from Fear Factory, but especially Dog Day Sunrise and Archetype
- WWIII by KMFDM
- The Good Ship Lifestyle by Chumbawamba
- a lot of Marilyn Manson songs but titles aren’t coming to me right now
- Open Road Song by Eve 6
- (I can’t believe I am admitting this) anything off of Bleed American by Jimmy Eat World
- Girl from Ipanema Goes to Greenland by The B-52’s
- Jolene by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
- (before I forget, because I know Callie will mention it) The Faint
- Video Killed the Radio Star by The Presidents of the USA
I could probably spend all night coming up with songs that make me want to get up and move, but what are yours?
