Infusion #1

Over on Facebook, I've asked people to post links to songs that pump them up....if you aren't there with me, feel free to post here:) The more the merrier. I'll add 'em to my "Fight" list on my ipod.

As I mentioned, "Starwalker" by Buffy St. Marie is awesome.

Hi, Dawn - I haven't been on Facebook more than a few minutes at a time in a few months due to computer issues, so I had no idea that any of this was going on with you until today, when I followed the link Cynthia shared with me.

I have a couple of playlists I am going to pull a few favorites from for you. For me, "pump me up" music comes in two varieties: the uplifting, and the feisty. The first kind makes me feel on top of the world; the second kind makes my blood run a little hotter to prepare for "battle" (whether against a human foe, or housework, or whatever...).

UPLIFTING (although, oddly, not all "positive-sounding" or "perky," but they still have that effect on me!):

"We Are All Made of Stars" by Moby

"Redemption Song" by Bob Marley & the Wailers

"Wasted" by L.P.

"Grace Like Rain" by Hopedoor (Yeah, it's a cover, and a lot of people have done this song, which intersperses "Amazing Grace" with other lyrics... but this is my favorite version, outside of unrecorded versions sung by choirs I've heard...)

"La Guitaristic House Organisation" by rinôçérôse

"Dancing with the Lion" by Andreas Vollenweider

"Sandstorm" by Darude

"Rammstein vs Darude - Feel The Beat" mixed by Beatmaster T (Who wouldn't love a trance/club hit remixed with German metal? Here's a link:

"Teachin' Myself to Dream" by Katy Rose

"Love Loves Me" by Ferron

"Closer to Fine" by Indigo Girls

"The Sun Song" by Michael Tolcher


"I Don't Care" by The Boys

"Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment" by The Ramones

"American Idiot" by Green Day (it has to be the live version from their concert in England off of "Bullet in a Bible."

"Glow" by Katy Rose

"Nothin' on Me" by Shawn Colvin

"Bad Reputation" by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts
(OK, it's a cliche by now, but it's still a classic!)

"Sooner or Later" by Michael Tolcher (This could go on either the uplifting or the feisty list. It's got a carpe diem theme, and is about not letting fear and caution keep you from really living. It does mention cancer, so you might want to pick your mood carefully before listening. Best line: "Playing in the rain is worth catching cold!")

I hope you find at least something you like or can relate to on my list.
