MIX TAPE 7-11 edition


first off.. I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to comment and or e-mail about Danny. all of your kind words, thoughts, and support mean very much to us. His appointment will be next wednesday, so I will update then. but once again.. THANK YOU!


ok.. back to the topic at hand! it's time for another MIX TAPE!!!!

this week delivered some unexpected blows for us at the Fever, and next week is going to need a certain amount of strength to get through. SO... this weekend.. I'm looking for some STRONG SONGS.

That's right. dig deep and give me your best song that fills you with STRENGTH.

is it a tune that taps inner strength that mentally gets you through each day or the one song in your workout mix that gets you up that last hill on your run?

we all can use a little extra push now and then, so help a blogger and her readers out and offer up a tune in my comments section.

only one song and one song only for each commenter, please... so make it a good one. if you list more than one song, only the first song will make the cut.

I'll take comments through the weekend, and post the list, links, and credits come Monday.

bring it on, gang!


edited to add: if you happen to HAVE the MP3, and you want to send it my way so I CAN upload it to the Muxtape for all to hear... please do! accepting MP3s at

I have several. But for you, this week - you need 'In My Arms' by Plumb. Lyrics here ... although I'm waivering between that and 'Always' from the same album, but the "go with your gut" feeling says In My Arms - heck it's the reason I bought the entire album on iTunes and K and I have listened to it like 3 million times!

Ok this is a no brainer for me... Pat Benatar "All Fired Up."

Hang in there know I'm there in your heart being strong for you!

So, in the interest of adding something of classic style and strength, I submit "Heroes" by David Bowie.

It's got a strength to it that goes beyond simply banging a drum or wailing a guitar.
'nuff said.
Kid - you want me to blast you the mp3?

not got a clue...i'm really not a big music person, so this mix tape stuff will be hard for me. :-(

Christi said...

"The Show Must Go On" by Queen. It's a "put on a strong front" song. Danny will need that when they check out his nose. He'll need to see that you're not scared, so why should he be.

Katy said...

Eye of the Tiger (Survivor), baby!

Stacey said...

Without a doubt, the most uplifting, amazing song for me has always been
Bad (Wide Awake in America) by U2. It gives me goosebumps every time I hear it, and never fails to give my spirit a jolt of energy.

"If I could through myself
Set your spirit free
I'd lead your heart away
See you break, break away
Into the light
And to the day"
(you gotta link to the live version from 1985 though...the best there is)

Stacey said...

and BTW, are you familiar with
I won't get into the legality issue, but you can pretty much download any song you can think of there.
You didn't hear it from me.
