I’ve been asked many times who is my favorite group. I’d have to say my favorite band is the Eagles. Their music, the hundreds of songs that they’ve written and performed, have stayed with me throughout my years. Some songs like “Take It Easy” and “Desperado” and “Life In The Fast Lane” and “Take It To The Limit.” I’ve heard those songs hundreds of times, and “Hotel California” probably ten times that many.
Those songs resonate with me. They take me back to a certain time. There are many songs that when they come up on a classic radio station I can remember exactly where I was in my younger days or in my travels. I can remember being on the aircraft carrier serving in the military when certain songs from Chicago came out. I can remember songs when I was overseas, later on in my career that reminded me of being back home, and the mountains and the skies and the beaches that I missed.
There were songs that pumped me up and made me melancholy. That’s what songs can do for you. So whether you need a good song to exercise to or to motivate you to get that next piece of business or just to reminisce, identify what those songs are. Use them to take yourself to the next level.
If you have a song that you’d like to share with me, mention it in the comments section or send me an email. I’d love to hear from you.
