We’re trying out a new feature at ChronicBabe: Question of the Week. We’re posting the questions at our Facebook page, and soliciting community collaboration and comments. This week:
What’s your favorite song to get you out of a funk?
My personal favorite: Bjork’s Alarm Call. So joyous! So raucous!
Maura says it’s impossible to stay in a bad mood if she’s listening to Jimmy Buffett.
Preferably sung out loud and acted in full, Becky favors Don’t Rain on My Parade from the movie Funny Girl.
Dog Days Are Over by Florence and the Machine is Michelle’s fave, and I gotta say, I ADORE that song!
Lindsay has put together some of my favorite selections: Nicki Minaj’s Fly, Florence and the Machine’s Shake it Out, Eminem’s Lose Yourself, Defying Gravity from the musical Wicked, Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys, Survivor by Destiny’s Child, Kelly Clarkson’s Stronger, Make it Happen by Mariah Carey, This is How We Do It by Montell Jordan, F**kin’ Perfect and Try by P!nk, Hold On by Wilson Phillips, and lots of Sia.
Lovely Day by Bill Withers works for Maggie… and me, too!
Mary loves Tusk by Fleetwood Mac. Yes!
Kyrie-Inn reminds me that Question by The Moody Blues is just lovely.
The Beautiful Ones by Prince is Andy’s go-to tune. Love it!
Hannah recommends Lime Tree by Trevor Hall.
Greater by Mercy Me is Jamie’s fave, and I can see why!
Sagar loves Existence by Shylah Ray Sunshine featuring Mother Medicine.
Emily favors Paul McCartney’s Dance Tonight, and while I’m usually not his biggest fan, this tune really gets me feelin’ good!
Finally, Wendy reminds us that Stevie Wonder is a god, and his song Superstition is a kickin’ jam.
