One of my favorite workout songs is Boston’s “More Than a Feeling.” I love the tempo shifts and the energy of the lyrics as the songwriter recalls a woman from his past after putting on a record to start his day. But to be honest, it’s the image of Ewan McGregor running towards a wall at the end of “Men Who Talk to Goats” with the song in the background that gives me the most inspiration. If he thinks he can run through walls, I can make it another 2:15 on the Stairmaster.
It’s no secret that music can unlock our inner muse. It taps into the root and allows inspiration to blossom. It allows our minds to play and our spirits to soar. I blog to music. I develop websites to music. I vacuum to music.
I recently stumbled upon a song called “Ain’t Waitin'” by the talented singer and songwriter Justin Townes Earle. It’s a wonderful blend of folk, blues and country mixed with a vivid story about a man’s return home from the road and enjoying his much needed downtime.
It’s Sunday mornin’,
Watchin’ baby workin’
in the kitchen
I got in late last night
And I’m movin’ a little slow
