    ..... well Diva and Shazza finally got their way and I am listening to Mary J Blige, Reflections!! :rolleyes:

    Favourite song at the moment is MJB Da MVP because it is a song of a survivor, and I intend to mirror that - this year I am gonna survive it all and make it to where I wanna be!! :cool:

    So what song is speaking to you today and filling your soul? :D

    Muse - Butterflies and Hurricanes. I used it in class this morning and I find it very motivational. It's the song I was listening to when I decided to train as a fitness instructor. Some of the lyrics, if you don't know the song:

    change everything you are
    and everything you were
    your number has been called

    you've got to be the best
    you've got to change the world
    and use this chance to be heard
    your time is now

    don't let yourself down
    don't let yourself go
    your last chance has arrived

    Oh beyond anyshadow of a doubt my favourite and most listened to song is by R Kelly - I believe I can fly, here are some lyrics.

    Some wonderful friends of mine engraved a couple of the lines on a mirror when I moved the business out of the home and into our office, it hangs in our meeting room at work! The lines in red and the ones engraved on my mirror!

    R KELLY LYRICS

    "I Believe I Can Fly"

    I used to think that I could not go on
    And life was nothing but an awful song
    But now I know the meaning of true love
    I'm leaning on the everlasting arms

    If I can see it, then I can do it
    If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

    [1]
    I believe I can fly
    I believe I can touch the sky
    I think about it every night and day
    Spread my wings and fly away
    I believe I can soar
    I see me running through that open door
    I believe I can fly
    I believe I can fly
    I believe I can fly

    See I was on the verge of breaking down
    Sometimes silence can seem so loud
    There are miracles in life I must achieve
    But first I know it starts inside of me, oh

    If I can see it, then I can do it
    If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

    [Repeat 1]

    Hey, cuz I believe in me, oh

    If I can see it, then I can be it
    If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

    [Repeat 1]

    Hey, if I just spread my wings
    I can fly
    I can fly
    I can fly, hey
    If I just spread my wings
    I can fly
    Fly-eye-eye

    Star star teach me how to shine shine
    Teach me so I know what's going on in your mind
    'Cause I don't understand these people
    Who say the hill's to steep
    Well they talk and talk forever
    But they just never climb

    Falling down into situations
    Bringing out the best in you
    You're flat on your back again
    And star you're ever word I'm heeding
    Can you help me to see
    I'm lost in the marsh
    Star star teach me how to shine shine
    Teach me so I know what's going on in your mind
    'Cause I don't understand these people
    Who say we're all asleep
    They'll toss and turn forever
    But no rest will they find...#

    Wow....there are way too many to mention!! :eek: However, particular favourites are:

    When running self development workshops, I usually play Breakthrough by Mary J Blige as the attendees walk in. It has FANTASTIC lyrics....not gonna type them all out but here's a snippet:

    "Ain't no telling what you're going through
    but we're gonna break through and take you
    take you where it feels soooo good!"

    Also love Let it Flow by Toni Braxton which is about letting go and just riding the wave of change.....love this one soooo much!

    Loads, loads more......and yes I Believe I Can Fly is also on that list!!! ;)

    Was Cambridge, now maintaining
    I’ve been doing writing a music arrangement of The Wheels on the Bus today. Can’t say that it spoke to me, but I got a great workout doing the actions.

    The wheels on the bus go round and round
    Round and round, round and round
    The wheels on the bus go round and round
    All through the town.
    Roll hands over each other

    The wipers on the bus go "Swish, swish, swish,
    Swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish"
    The wipers on the bus go "Swish, swish, swish"
    All through the town.
    Put arms together in front of you and
    'swish' like windshield wipers

    The door on the bus goes open and shut
    Open and shut, open and shut
    The door on the bus goes open and shut
    All through the town.
    Play peekaboo with hands over eyes

    The horn on the bus goes "Beep, beep, beep
    Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep"
    The horn on the bus goes "Beep, beep, beep"
    All through the town.
    Pretend to honk horn

    The diesel on the bus goes "Glug, glug, glug
    Glug, glug, glug, glug, glug, glug"
    The gas on the bus goes "Glug, glug, glug"
    All through the town.
    Pretend to fill tank using pointer finger as petrol nozzle. It is advisable not to use a real bus for this action. Stinky stinky

    The money on the bus goes "Clink, clink, clink,
    Clink, clink, clink, clink, clink, clink"
    The money on the bus goes "Clink, clink, clink"
    All through the town.
    Put all lose change in money box and send to Karion Dieting PO Box 248

    The baby on the bus says, "Boo hoo hoo!
    Boo hoo hoo, Boo hoo hoo
    The baby on the bus says, "Boo hoo hoo!
    All through the town.
    Fisted hands in front of eyes and rub them like baby crying. Please don’t cry! It’s a happy song. Neither should you shout at the baby. It’s hardly his fault you’ve just had a free fight with the bus driver!

    The people on the bus say, "Shh, shh, shh,
    Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh"
    The people on the bus say, "Shh, shh, shh"
    All through the town.
    See what’s happened now. Told you not to shout!

    The mommy on the bus says, "I love you,
    I love you, I love you"
    The daddy on the bus says, "I love you, too"
    All through the town.
    Okay…so you love baby now as he’s stopped crying. OH has made up and apologised. Peace and love to all.

    The drunk on the bus goes bleh cough bleh
    Bleh cough bleh
    Bleh cough bleh
    The drunk on the bus goes bleh cough bleh
    All through the town.
    You’ve found the spare bottle under the seat haven’t you.

    The hooker on the bus goes fifty quid
    Fifty quid
    Fifty quid
    The hooker on the bus goes fifty quid
    For me to go down
    Get up!!! You’ve got a baby to look after!! Tut

    So did that speak to you?

    Oh yes!!! Specially the pull pull bit.

    Are you sure it didn't speak to you. Not even the bit about the drunk:confused:
