6 Songs to Move Your Booty
This morning I stood smiling on a Wimbledon corner grooving to a new song. A passing bus driver waved and smiled!
Believe me, this is not my normal behaviour but I was inspired to move!
The song in my ears was Taylor Swift’s – “Shake it Off”, which was suggested by my music loving husband who is a bit of pop tune connoisseur because of his Pub Quiz writing business. We agree that her song is a great blend of toe tapping tune and fun, repetitive, inspiring words. The video had me hooked as soon as I watched.
This shouldn’t surprise me as I am a child of the MTV generation who were introduced to revolutionary, well produced visual representations of songs. I am the perfect consumer…once I see a video I like I usually buy the song or album. I even remember whose house I was in when I first watched Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
Many of you will already know about the power of music to motivate us to move. Whether this movement is shimming on the pavement, tube platform, in your living room or lifting a weight in the gym or jogging up the street it all makes a positive impact on our bodies and well-being.
