I know this is a pretty broad topic that really could go in any direction, but I have to say, music is something that has the ability to alter my mood!
So for this blog post, I am going to recommend 25 songs that help me get jazzed up. What I mean by that is, when work has me down, or life in general, I crank these tunes and dance around until I feel better.
I would love to hear from you on which songs you like from the list, or what you thought about songs you have never listened to before from the list.
Also, I am going to try something new, let’s vote on our favorite songs from the list below and see what the consensus is! Are you game?! Well then saddle up and let’s do this!!
