Cleaning and Grooving…

I’m listening to Rick Astley while I do some Sunday housework. Feel free to laugh, I love this CD. It makes me want to move and groove while I clean. Plus I love singing along to all of the songs.

What gets you moving and grooving when you need it? I would gladly take some recommendations!

::sings along:: never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around and desert you… never gonna make you cry never gonna say good bye never gonna something something and something you…

Oh yeah.

My cleaning groove music? Definitely my Jock Jams CDs. (Butterfly… uh-oh that’s old, lemme see you tootsee roll! or… Jump Around, or or or. :-D)

The Moulin Rouge Soundtrack puts me in a totally productive, dancing, cleaning mood. Also, old Moby electronica…and BeeGees disco era stuff. I have no right to laugh at your Rick Astley after admitting that.

We’ve been together…for so long…

OMG. My sister gave me this tape when he was hot and I thought I was just the BOMB listening to Rick on my Walkman. I was cool. Right? RIGHT?

Don’t apologize! I love Rick Astley!
And I love to listen to the 12 inch singles that I lost when I rented the storage space that was supposed to be climate controlled but wasn’t – Thank goodness for P2P!!!

You like Rick? My husband went to school with him. Or lived in the same apartment? I forget which it was.

Wait…maybe it was Terence Trent D’Arby. Nevermind.

(I listen to “White Lines” myself – that’s a groover, for sure.)

For me it’s any soundtrack to something with a groove to it – A Night at the Roxbury will get me going, and sometimes when I work at one of the Director’s homes, her Saturday Night Fever album will find 2 silly women dancing around the house for no reason. 🙂

i’ve been listening to Michelle Branch’s new CD Hotel Paper on repeat since i bought it. my house cleaning music is usually the latest CD i bought. i highly recommend David Gray’s CD White Ladder or anything by Enya.

I love Enya, but it’s too soothing for me to get housework done. It’s better background music for reading for me.

The Bee Gees on the other hand – that is some good get up & go music! I listen to them all the time in the car, along with my Moulin Rouge CD. It’s almost always the Bee Gees though – the Greatest Hits CD set, especially the second CD. Stayin’ Alive … Stayin’ Alive …

I am glad to know I am not alone in my love for Rick Astley though! Mmmmm…

Christine…you are my kind of girl! That BeeGees CD has been the only thing I play in my car (besides the radio) for a couple of months now. I listened to disc one for the first month, and now I can’t stop playing the second disc. Such great music!!

P.S. I totally love Enya, too. I admit I have done my share of cleaning to her music, too, but that was during a different time in my life…when I was single and lived in my oh-so-eclectic apartment with incense burning 24-7. You just can’t get that mood going with two little kids running around and toys all over the place.

this is by far one of the most interesting blogs i have ever stumbled upon!! I am definitly linking you and will be back over and over again! oh and when i need to be motivated i listen to 80’s music or maybe even some fast punky stuff 🙂

Ok. I made my own Rick Astley mix CD. Because I am a sucker for 80’s cheese.

And, on the occasion that I’m actually cleaning, I will play random 80’s pop. Flock of Seagulls, Kajagoogoo, Bananarama…

Aw, who am I kidding? I play 80’s pop no matter what. I, um, even listened to New Kids Greatest Hits in the car last week *blushes and looks around shiftily*

Wait! I mean, hell no I don’t listen to boy bands!

I wasn’t a big NKOTB fan – they were big when I was in college, so I didn’t listen to them much – but my Dad got free tickets to their concert so I went with one of my co-workers. I swear, I think at 20, I was one of the oldest people there without teen girls in tow! They put on a really good show though, so I’ll gladly admit to seeing them!

I also saw Duran Duran (with guests filling in) a few years ago. Reflex!

Ok, you had me at Rick Astley but then you went and said Reflex! Throw in some Julian Lennon and that is so the sound track to my elementary years. I actually once answered Richard Marx and Julian Lennon to a Russian History question in a rather public brain fart moment.
