A Special Edition Revisited: Rhythm is a Dancer vs Pump Up the Jam

This week’s special edition brought to you by life with my real world responsibilities.

You may have noticed my alter ego and I share a zombie avatar in the morning. I wouldn’t call it an allergy to mornings per se, but more a celebration of evening. I really do think mornings are lovely—once I wake up around 10 a.m..

However, this week even my third cup of morning Joe failed me.

Plan B.

Two songs popped into my head, neither one Meghan Trainor’s “All About the Bass” to get my blood pumping.

“Rhythm is a Dancer” by Snap! kept pounding on the closet door in the remote recesses of my brain.

*Fannie looks around the closet.*

A dim, bare bulb swings on the cord from the ceiling—making a soft creaking sound, punctuated by the thin, metal pull-chain clapping the glass. Freed from the bulb, cobwebs floated toward the ceiling.

I need to dust. And replace that light bulb. It’s a bit creepy in here.

Sitting on the shelf next to it, Technotronic’s “Pump Up the Jam.” Now that should get my blood flowing.

When I watched the video, I remembered why I put it on the shelf.

But now I’m pumped up.

What songs help get your motor running in the morning? Let me know in the comments.

Until next week my friends.

About Fannie Cranium

Writing since she could first hold a pen, Tracy Perkins formed her alter ego, "Fannie Cranium" at the suggestion of her husband. Tracy understands smiling makes people wonder what she’s been up to.

    Ah, bustiers and biker shorts at the clubs in college, dancing with my friends. Good thing we were fit and flat-abb’d to move to these. That last video sure is HARD ON THE EYES, though. When these songs come on the radio, my husband just looks at me like I’m from the Twilight Zone. These days, I can get pumped up to JT’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling.” It’s even fun to shoot pool to!
