Throwback Thursday!

As I mentioned earlier this week, I have decided to dedicate a few days each week to a particular theme. I have often used Thursdays as a throwback day, but from now on it  will always officially be “Throwback Thursday.” I started doing a “Song of the Day” for my daughter back in 2009, and began this website in 2013. I have LOTS of music that I have shared over those years; therefore, I have decided to use this day to revisit one of the songs that I shared over the last 9 years.

Today I decided to share a song by Plug In Stereo that I shared on my daughter’s Facebook wall back in 2011. I just had to share this song today because of the song I shared yesterday. Plug In Stereo was the performance name of a young singer-songwriter named Trevor Dahl who played very sweet, emotive acoustic pop. I always enjoyed listening to his music and wondered what had become of him.

Much to my surprise, as I was looking up the names of the members of the group – Cheat Codes – there he was! I really had no idea that it was the same person, but I instantly recognized the name and face (hard to miss that fabulous hair!). I  just felt like I should share a song by him today. The two songs are about as completely opposite as possible and it is fun for me to see an artist evolve over time.

Workout Wednesday!

As I mentioned on Monday, I have decided to dedicate a few days each week to a particular theme. Wednesdays will now be “Workout Wednesday.” On Wednesdays I will post a song that you will find on my workout playlist, and that I hope that it helps you get motivated for your workouts.

This song has been a constant on my workout play list since November, but before you listen to it, I want to give you an explicit language alert. I have to admit that when my daughter first shared this song with me months ago, she wondered if I might not like it because of that, but I find this song incredibly motivating. Who doesn’t remember how it feels to be young? The answer (although we hear the F word multiple times) just seems fitting. 🙂
