30 Day Song Challenge: Day 2

It’s day two of the 30 day song challenge. If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, check out my Day 1 post which explains the challenge and has the schedule. Lots of people liked my choice for day one, and I hope today’s song strikes a chord too.

Day 2: A song you like with a number in the title

I think everyone could guess what I’m going to choose for this one. Tim had worked it out before I said anything…

Dolly Parton: 9 to 5

It’s got to be Dolly! I love Dolly Parton (of course), I love this song, and the film behind it. On days when I’m finding it hard to get up, I can motivate myself by singing the opening to this song alone:

Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
Yawn and stretch and try to come to life

I practically act out the song to get me through the painful process of waking up, and by the end I’m always raring to go! Are all my readers out there Dolly fans, or am I alone in this one? Let me know your choice for today’s theme in the comments, and I’ll see you tomorrow for Day 3.
