Walk Up Music Wednesday, Vol. 4

(Wondering what Walk Up Music Is?  Start here.)

Walking through the parking lot is a little different now-there's no sun beginning to peek out, there's a definite chill in the air, forcing me to move a little more quickly into the warmth of the building.  But that doesn't mean I'm going to slack off in the tunes department.

Monday-"Take the Money and Run"  by Steve Miller Band.  It was payday.  Enough said.

Tuesday-"Want You to Want Me" the Jason Derulo and Luke Bryan version.  I really like both these guys independently, but when you put them together the sum is truly greater than the parts.  And Luke trying to be urban cracks me up.  Every.  Single.  Time.

Wednesday-"You Can't Hurry Love" by the Dixie Chicks.  Somehow Tuesday I got to talking to a colleague about this song and decided to play it Wednesday morning.  Yes, I know the Supremes are amazing and there will never be another Diana Ross.  But I'm a Kentuckian, which means I love good country music.  And even though their version is definitely not country (no fiddle, no dobro, no steel guitar) it's still a great song.

Thursday-"Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison.  Even though I am a green-eyed girl (and in the minority in my own family as all my immediate family members have blue eyes) , I left the house Wednesday morning at 5:15 a.m. and did not return home until 7:45 p.m. thanks to parent teacher conferences after school.  Needless to say, I needed something upbeat and happy and this song never fails to deliver.  (And if you ever need an alternate version, go to YouTube and type in Blake Shelton and Brown Eyed Girl.  He made a mashup of it and his song "Hey Romeo" before mashups were a thing and it was always one of my favorites whenever I would see him live.)

Friday-"I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor.  Two days of parent teacher conferences until 6.  Two days of leaving by 5:30 a.m. and not returning until after 7:30.  I needed the reminder this was temporary and would not be the end.
