Silly Song that Hits My Groove Button

Though I occasionally go sans music, my teeny MP3 player which plays many records' worth of songs (what amazing technology, no?) is my saving grace on the track at the gym. I can circle round and round without dwelling on the fact that I'm actually going nowhere.

Occasionally a song comes up on my playlist that causes me to hit the repeat button over and over again. I probably should not admit that I am a 41-year-old woman who is enamored by an old Jonas Brothers song, but here it is anyway.
I took a ship to the year 3000. This song had gone multi-platinum. Everybody bought our 7th album. It had outsold Kelly Clarkson.
Call me silly and sentimental, but the first time I heard these lyrics (several years ago) I actually got goosebumps. Do you remember believing in yourself, in what you were doing so whole-heartedly that you could think such positive thoughts about the far distant future?

Silly, silly, but tonight I ended up putting my MP3 player on repeat and listened round and round with a big smile on my face. It lifts me up and makes me happy.

Right now my repeat song is...
"I Wanna be Sedated" by The Ramones
What does that say? hum

Hmmm... indeed. I think that song says it's got a beat that you can dance to. I'll hit repeat a few times on that one.
