It’s Throwback Thursday! Today’s #tbt song was originally posted as my daughter’s Song of the Day on May 8, 2012.

I know that this song choice seems off beat for me, but I have to tell you that I just love this song. I find it totally empowering! It just makes me feel good.

I find this to be a great running and workout song, or just a great song when I want to dance around the house and tell off the world. haha! Also a good song as a reminder for my daughter and other young girls who are finding their way. So, it is an old song by a teen pop star – not my typical song choice – but it is a great song and I think you will like it.  I can’t say that I follow Selena Gomez, but I can say that I sure like the girl in this video and hope that she is still that girl.

SONG OF THE DAY – “FREE” by Rudimental, featuring Emeli Sande

Just a quick note today with a song that I absolutely love and a video that I think is awesome.

I think Emeli Sande has such an incredible voice and it melds perfectly with the sounds of Rudimental, an English electronic, drum ‘n’ bass group. The song and the album Home was released almost a year ago in April 2013 to great reviews. In fact, the producer-musician quartet just won a 2014 BRIT Award for Best British Single for the song, “Waiting All Night.”

I find this song empowering. It makes me want to run outside. I love the combination of the music and the lyrics – it just totally catches me in the emotion of that moment of feeling “free.” They did an incredible job on the video as I think it is one of the best I have seen in terms of catching that same feeling that you hear while listening to the song. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

“Whoa, c’est la vie. Maybe something’s wrong with me. But, whoa, at least I am free. Oh I am free!”
