Songs to Un-Funk you

I'm happy to announce that I'm two days tear-free.

Okay, I'm trying to tell less white lies. I did let one little stream fall down my cheek, but then decided that I didn't want to ruin my mascara and I was silly to be crying anyway, it was only because I'm out of Reese's cups!

So (so so so) many times in my life, music has pulled me out of the deepest and darkest of forests. The "Get-Over-Stuff" playlist used to be filled with Linkin Park, Foo Fighters, Saliva - some pretty angry things that made me feel like I was getting retribution for the way I was feeling because someone, somewhere had gone through the same thing as I had. Even though because it was happening to me, it was the hardest thing in the history of the world.

Then there's the "i'm-so-sad-and-need-a-big-hug" moments where you get weak and hit up the Fine Frenzy and Ron Pope and Passenger genre's and all you can do is hug your favorite stuffed animal while you wet the entire pillowcase you're bawling yourself to sleep over.

Then there's when you need to pull your head out of your ass and you need a "YES!-this-world-is-amazing-and-all-these-songs-make-me-want-to-dance" playlist. This feeling usually hits me when I'm ready to shut a door, hold my head up high and just do me. What I'm about to share are ten go-to songs that WON'T make you feel all the feels and will just make you want to flashdance.

Speaking of dancing, had a much better class yesterday and I'll probably talk about it more later this week
if nothing crazy comes up. Enjoy un-funking!

Rick Astley FTW!!!!! They played this at our company bowling party the other day and I jammed out. My coworkers were quite amuse. Rhythm is a Dancer is one of my faves too. Glad you've got some good tunes to unfunk you!

i did not read that as un-funk. i read it as something completely inappropriate.

it gets better. i don't cry very much now! i used to a lot.

Try to sing Jenny (867-5309) and be in a bad mood. You can't! 80s music is the best to shake off the sads...

you win ten extra cool points just for including BBD and rick astley on here because most bloggers are all "who are those people?" since they pretty much weren't even born then haha!
