My Awesome Mix Vol. 1

August 21, 2014

Pretty sure I’m the last person on the face of the planet to have seen Guardians of the Galaxy, but I finally saw it and it was great!

There are two things that stuck in my mind after the movie:

1) The quote “Everybody’s got dead people! But it makes no excuse to letting everyone else around get killed along the way!” -Rocket Raccoon

It was a hard hitting line that was delivered during quite an emotionally tense scene and that made me step outside of my head for a moment of reflection. I LIKE it when sci-fi movies do that to me!

and

2) How much I relate to Peter Quill’s Awesome Mix Vol. 1.

In my world, music comes and goes but I always have a playlist on standby full of the songs that have stuck with me through the ever changing phases of my life. This is the mix I listen to when I’m sad, happy, need to get pumped up, during workouts, etc. These songs never get old and have earned their spot in my own Awesome Mix Vol. 1. They vary from simply having a fun beat, to songs that may not be interesting to other people but have a huge emotional connection with me. Peter Quill’s music not only reflects a deep emotional connection because of his mother, but during the opening scene we can see that it’s his game-time music. When it’s on, his focus is 100% and there’s nothing he can’t accomplish.

I thought it would be fun to share with you guys my personal Awesome Mix Vol. 1 playlist, since I work out to a lot of this music (some of it is even in my Anime Aerobics classes!).

Here’s a little YouTube playlist I put together:

I have a pretty weird taste in music so I’m not expecting rave reviews, but it’s important to note the things that motivate and drive us, so I guess that was the exercise for today. 😀

Do you have your own Awesome Mix Vol. 1 playlist? Do any songs in your life give you an instant boost? I wanna know!!
