Sorry for my delayed post friends…every now and then I’ve got to take a break. Plus I was at an interview for an upcoming potential internship—I don’t want to jinx it—but let’s just say that’s it a channel that consists of only one vowel. Any ideas?
But with all my driving to LA this week (which has accumulated to over 10 hours in the car this week), I’ve noticed an essential way that I’ve been able to keep my spirits up. The trick: singing in the car. Whether you’ve got the pipes of Celine, Whitney, or Madonna—or not—I think belting it out in the car is an absolute blast. And I think it’s good to keep an eclectic mix on hand too, because believe me, some songs, even though they were made 20 years ago, get played over and over again. You can only hear “Red, Red Wine” and “Don’t Stop Believing” until it starts to lose a little bit of it’s magic. Don’t get me wrong, I love those songs, but I can only hear them about once a day before they start getting a little old.
So I jump the stations. On my playlist you might hear something like this:
1. “Faithfully” by Journey
2. “September” by Earth, Wind, and Fire
3. “Give Me Everything” by Pitbull and Ne-Yo
4. “Honeybee” by Blake Shelton
5. “Brown-Eyed Girl” by Van Morrison
6. “Pour Some Sugar on Me” by Def Leppard
7. “Dancing Queen” by ABBA
I’m all across the board. But it makes me so happy. I hope sometime you’ll get to see me on the road. I am a dancing diva on wheels. I never make eye contact with other drivers because I know if I did, I’d realize how embarrassing I look with my snaps and head bobs. But that’s the beauty of it. It’s my car, my space and I can sing however I please. In my car, I’m my own American Idol. But it doesn’t go any farther than that. And hey, I’m happy with that. I hope you can enjoy your time for yourself and sing as you please. For me, if there was no music in my life, I wouldn’t feel fulfilled.
Sing in your car or whenever the occasion warrants!
