A good weekend (which I may or may not tell you about ... I can't decide) and a good message at Mass on Sunday night made me ready to put the whole moping thing behind me, at least for now. I woke up this morning feeling more refreshed than I have in a couple weeks and ready to kick ass at life again.
Usually my iPod and my life are very much in sync: it's very good at playing music that suits my mood or current situation. But it don't think it got the memo this morning that we were kicking ass.
So, in hopes of keeping this renewed spirit alive, I present to you the newest Modern Gal musical mission ...

Last summer I just needed some new music to listen to and it resulted in the megahit Modern Gal Rocks album. This summer, my friends, we are going to put together a Modern Gal Gets Psyched mix, a la Barney Stinson to help fight those times when life tries to sneak a banana peel in my path.
Here's how it works: Think of the song that gets you most psyched about living life and suggest it to me in a comment on this post. Please suggest ONLY ONE SONG. If you suggest more than one, I'm just going to use the first one you give me. I want the mix to be representative of all my Modern Friends, not just a bunch of picks from one person.
After about a week or so, I'll put together the playlist, review it and probably add the playlist iTunes so that anyone who wants to download it can. (I may also give away a copy or two if it's exceptionally good.)
Bonus points go to people who suggest music I've never heard before. Also, when in doubt, '80s music is very, very good.
