I’ve chosen this Jessie J jam I’d never heard of till this morning as my anthem to start the new year: [Do It Like It] “Ain’t Been Done.”
Elisa has already professed her disgust, but on the spin bike at 9:30 this morning blasting from the speakers behind me, it totally got me. I even ran up to the instructor after class to ask what the song was.
That’s the great thing about an anthem though, it doesn’t have to move a soul but you.
My ex-girlfriend used to listen to “Wind Beneath My Wings” by Bette Midler before her college soccer matches, for goodness sakes.
Whatever works, right?
It’s your wake up jam, your lift-you-up jam, your car ride get-pumped jam, your gym jam, your I-look-sexy-in-my-skinny-jeans jam; even if you’ve grown out of it by February, it does the trick for now.
All that in mind, choose one. For you and only you.
I leave you with this: Make sure it’s downloaded or in your Spotify cue, and ready when you need it.
