'Cause If She Wanna Rock She Rocks

I can't get through my day with out listening to music.  Luckily I found a pair of iHome computer speakers with an iPod dock years ago on eBay for $6 that I use at work.  They make the day so much more bearable. 

Here are some of my favorite songs to listen to.

Living on a Prayer, Bon Jovi – Bon Jovi was my first boyfriend.  I was 8.  We are still together after all these years.

Stagger Lee, Lloyd Price – Anytime this song comes on and I am with my dad and sister a sing along usually follows.

Positively 4th Street, Bob Dylan – If you have ever had a toxic friend and the relationship ended, you can probably relate to this song.

Into the Mystic, Van Morrison – It just  rocks my gypsy soul.

She Moves in Her Own Way, The Kooks

The Best, Tina Turner – This song will always remind me of my sister . .  "Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead"  AND it;'s Tina!

Valerie, Mark Ronson - This song always gets me moving my shoulders.  I wonder if Amy Whinehouse realized just how amazing her voice was.

Fairytale of New York, The Pogues – I am not a Christmas Caroly type of person, so it's only fitting that this would be my favorite Christmas song.  "I could have been someone.  Well, so could anyone."

Tessie, Dropkick Murphys – It's sacrilegious to be from Boston and not love this song.  It's our city's fight song.

Dirty Dancing, New Kids on the Block – You couldn't be a teenage girl in the 90s and not want to marry the New Kids.  Even though it’s not old school New Kids, I could listen to it over and over again.

Read My Mine, The Killers – The Killers are lyrical geniuses

Not Ready to Make Nice, Dixie Chicks – You have to hand it to a group of women that refuse to back down for what they believe in. 

Wonderwall, Oasis – I just brings me back.

Everything, Michael Buble – I heart Michael Buble. I could get lost in his voice.

La Cienega Just Smiled, Ryan Adams

Iesha, Another Bad Creation - I think I was in the 7th grade when this song came out and I still remember the video.  Their overalls were SO COOL!

Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen), Baz Luhrmann - It's kind of cheesy, but I like to listen to this sometimes when I am alone in the car.  It has some great advice and words of wisdom. And it samples "Everybody's Free (To Feel Good)" from one of my favorite movies of all time William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet. "Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself, either. Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else's."

Rock & Roll, Eric Hutchinson - The source of the title of this post.
