Over the weekend, my favorite sports talk radio station flipped to alternative music, and this song has been on hot rotation. It's pretty cool, despite the fact that the singer is Deuce Bigalow's daughter.
Usually I'd post the official video for this song, but there's something about Sean Hayes' tiny guitar that makes this video even better!
This is unabashedly NOT a workout song, although people are dancing. It's a blooper reel from season 1 of "Playing House," because season 2 premieres TONIGHT on USA, and I can't wait! (Laughing does burn extra calories, y'know.)
Every time that Taco Bell bacon something-or-other ad comes on, that haunting song gets stuck in my head. In case you are a youngster, the song is a remake of "Mad World" by Tears for Fears. The 1983 (college!) song was redone by Halsey exclusively for the ad, so you can't download it (yet). But the original tempo is a little better for working out to anyway.
I was thinking about this song when I saw my friend Christine's Periscope chat on making small steps toward big changes. Of course, this is also the premise of Roni and Carla's book, What You Can When You Can: Healthy Living on Your Terms. So to make this song even more useful, I've not only posted the 1988 video, I've also posted two instructional videos so you can dance along!
I was working on my laptop when I heard this song coming from the teenager's Xbox game. Wow, takes me back to college!
I first heard this song during an electric toothbrush commercial. If this can make a toothbrush dance, imagine what it can do for you!
I'm dedicating this song to everyone who will join me for my FitBloggin' discussion on Friday, 'Durings’ Inspire, Too: The Importance of Blogging Before You Are an ‘After’. I'm serious about not giving up, even when the going gets tough or results become stagnant, and every now and then we need an anthem to goose ourselves into action.
