Tunes on Tuesday: Four Tunes for a Blah Day

The title of this post might seem a bit misleading, I'm not talking about tunes to enhance that cruddy mood.  I'm talking about the type of tunes you need to bring yourself OUT of the funk.  Lately it's been so gloomy and today it was snowing again for a while, which definitely puts me in a blah mood.  Not sure about you guys but it's that time of year when I definitely need a little pick me up and the tune-age I listen to is the cure!

1.  I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers

You can't go wrong with anything 80's, especially this march inducing tune.  I mean seriously try to listen to it and not start marching in place.  Yup I knew you couldn't do it!  March around the room a couple of times while you're at it and get some activity points, I'm doing it.

2.  Hey Ya! by Outkast

Like "I'm Gonna Be"  this one also seems to have the ability to get body parts moving.  In this case though it's usually the butt wiggle a la Cameron Diaz in Charlie's Angels.  My wiggle isn't as good as hers but at least my butt is having fun.

3.  I Love It by Icona Pop

You can never go wrong with any song that talks about not caring and loving it.

4.  Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go by Wham

Do I even need to explain this one?  If you're not dancing and snapping like an idiot by the first minute ... mor like the first 15 seconds you have no soul!  It's so upbeat and catchy you can't help but be happy.

My playlist is obviously lacking and will only last me 20 minutes ... what are your best pick me up songs that should be on my list??
