I had an alternative title for this post: throwing it way, way back. Let me explain. I’ve written about my adventures with self massage (throw in dry brushing, too). Using music during the massage and my showers.
I grew up singing in a choir and playing in bands/orchestras. I went to music camp. I still have my flute, but even if I wanted to play, it needs some work. I always have my voice though!
I’ve been listening to some golden oldies (for me) although we’re talking 80s & above, in general. It gets me moving! One thing I struggle with on Peloton sometimes is the music. I guess I’m getting old when I’m not as in touch with what’s popular!
I’m linking up with My First 5K and More, Running With Attitude, Runs with Pugs, Zenaida and Run Laugh Eat Pie for Fit Five Friday. Today I’m sharing 5 artists I’m loving from the past — and in the present.
I can (vaguely) remember the Sonny & Cher show. I can also remember working out with Cher via VHS. Cher is timeless, #amiright?
2: The Bangles
Sadly the Bangles didn’t hang around for long, although they were more than a one hit wonder. I had their greatest hits CD and used it well.
3: Sarah Bareilles
We saw Sarah Bareilles in concert before she became well known. In fact Mr. Judy had no idea who she was (although I did), and was so sure she would be a one hit wonder. Many hits later . . .
4: Gloria Estefan
Am I the only one that remembers Miami Sound Machine? I used to listen to them all the time at work. Which is only going back 30+ years (for that particular job). Which is exactly how we saw them in concert, too — again, long before they (and Gloria) were well known.
5: Andy Grammer
Andy Grammer was one of our last concerts, just about four years ago. We had so much fun that weekend! Andy Grammer’s music makes me want to move and is uplifting, too.
What do all these artists have in common? They are almost all very upbeat and almost all have a danceable vibe (although some have more ballads). That’s not the only type of music I enjoy, but it puts a smile on my face and a wiggle in my hips. In the bathroom, anyway.
Who I’ve listened to since I wrote this post:
- Whitney Houston
- Meghan Trainor
Who are you listening to lately?
Music, podcasts, or both?
