A Little Mood Music

Music can evoke such emotion. Hearing a song from my junior high school era plunks me right back into the bobbing waves of teenage angst, and listening to the Braveheart soundtrack reminds me of falling in love with my husband. I often make music mixes to serve a given purpose: encourage an intense workout, get through housework, drag myself out of a funk, set the mood for a romantic evening, or start the day off on a positive note. Here are some great new mood elevators, perfect for breaking a sweat or doing the dishes.
