I'm one highfalutin' son of a gun!

I really, really love finding old mix-CDs. Long lost and forgotten about until one day, like yesterday for example you stumble upon a BOX full of them in your parents' garage.  I know I hit the jackpot when I saw "LK & CB <3 AC 8/2007" in there. I know that 2007 isn't exactly ancient but let's face it, 6 years ago is long ago.  I sprinted to my car yesterday anticipating what was on this CD, but I really wanted it to be a surprise for me on my way to work this morning.  I shoved it in the car and quickly turned off and went back in the house.  Boy that AC Mix tape did NOT disappoint.

First song: KING OF NEW YORK by the Newsies.  I remembered every single word.  In fact, it got me so pepped up for my long 4 hour work day today that I can't wait to get out of here and watch it this evening. Yes, I own it on DVD. Who doesn't?

"What's the matter with you? You in the paps you're famous! you're famous, you get anything you want! That's whats so great about New York!"

Did anyone forget that CHRISTIAN BALE is in this movie?? He was. I'll let you take a minute and look at him and his cute self.

Another couple of songs: O.A.R. "Love and Memories", Michael Jackson "Will You Be There" (FREE WILLY!!!), Newsies "Seize the Day", The Startling Line "This Ride"**, The Verve Pipe "The Freshman", Sean Kingston "Me Love" (LOL), Jack's Mannequin "Dark Blue", Journey "Anyway You Want It", Sublime "Santeria", SAVAGE GARDEN "Crash and Burn" (OH MY GOD. OBSESSED), and last but CERTAINLY not least: a song from A Goofy Movie: "After Today". 

ok... that wasn't exactly a couple of songs, but all of them are just too good not to share!! so, really I'm getting to the point of why I'm liking up with I Wore Yoga Pants.

The ultimate best throwback song that was on this mix CD, that I'm dedicated to #backthatazzup Friday is:

If that song doesn't motivate you to work out, I don't know what else will!

**:  Do you all have a song, that no matter what, when, where it comes on that you just JAM out?! The Starting Line's "This Ride" does it to me everytime.  I was that person in my car this morning jamming on my steering wheel as if they were drums, bopping my head like I was a rocker, it was really a great show.

  1. I LOVE that Kanye West song!! My friend put it on a mix CD for us as a joke because the four of us hated anything to do with exercise or dieting hahaha. Old mix CDs are just the best - there's this one I have from my sixth grade birthday party - Ciara's 1, 2 Step, and lots of Fergie and Snoop Dogg!
