Because winners have theme songs and losers need motivating

Devra says:

We know. We don't live in Philly. Maybe you don't think we're like Rocky and need a theme song, but we disagree. We need many theme songs to keep us inspired and motivated. Sure, we could come up with our own list of songs combining what we think to be the best of what we both like to hear. But do you really trust our judgement?
Do you trust two moms with a shared penchant for 80's music which only reflects a time when we both thought we looked smokin' hot?

Dokken, Culture Club, Anthrax, Tears For Fears, Iron Maiden, The Smiths, Pantera, New Order, QueensRyche, Pet Shop Boys, Sound Garden, Terrance Trent D'arby, Metallica, Simple Minds...


Think about that list of artists. Think about how Sarah and I both love this decade. How this pure and authentic love of the 80's sounds to each of us.

Now think about how it would actually sound if we combined them...

Think hard.

Then think about listening to something like that on your iPod or MP3.

Scares the ever living shit out of you, doesn't it?

Preventing us from making that playlist should be your first priority and in order to do that, you are going to have to give us song suggestions.

Your input will be included in a "You Choose, We Lose" playlist we will be happy to share on iTunes.

All I can think of is "Sexyback" by Justin Timberlake, because you two ladies are going to be SMOKIN' by the time BlogHer comes around! Rawr!!

(And dude, you don't want me recommending songs cause I was raised on grunge music. You'd be wearing flannel and too depressed to exercise before you knew it.)

You must put my own personal theme song in your playlist: "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor. Losers like you will need the encouragement she gives.

(and my freshman college roomate 1984 had the exact same hairdo that Sarah has here).

Gold Digger by Kanye West makes me want to shake it.

Butterfly Wings - Machines of loving Grace is a good, industrial rock song that'll kick you right into shape.

Oh geez...I'd help but I once had a playlist that went from:

Rob Zombie to Ricky Martin to The Boston Pops to Meatloaf to The Soggy Bottom Boys, unfortunately it was stolen from my car.

I'm afraid I'd make someones head explode.
