This week is all about staying on top of my workload. Who’s with me?! Set phasers to stun, ladies, and turn up the soundtrack to taking on the world in style. 

Adam and the Ants – “Kings of the Wild Frontier”

If I need to get pumped, I put on this song. With a frenzied, militaristic drumbeat and expressive chant-like lyrics, this song sounds like The Clash gone savage. Need a “fierce” boost? Turn this ish up. (P.S. Don’t you love the singer’s jacket in this video? A little bird told me that this style is a must this winter!)

Miike Snow – “Sylvia”

If you like OneRepublic’s “Apologize,” you’ll love this track. The melodies are upbeat and kind of spacey, like these Swedes went to a dance club on a comet to write and record “Sylvia.” Synthesizers are backed up by a sweet piano lick that soothes the soul while getting that booty moving. Dance break, anyone?

The Juliana Hatfield Three – “Spin the Bottle”

This song tells the timeless tale of the anticipation of young love and party games. It’s true feel-good 90’s alternative pop rock, complete with bright girlish vocals, a catchy guitar hook and sassy yet relatable lyrics. 

(Check out the VJ’s awesome style as he introduces the video. Isn’t he adorable? In denim-y kind of way.)
