After watching three days of inspired and rousing speeches at the Democratic National Convention, many are now fired up and ready to go in pursuit of re-electing President Obama. So this weekend’s music thread is about the music that fires you up, songs you play that drive you when you’ve got a job to do, songs that energize you and light your fuse.

Smash Mouth – All Star

Tubthumping – Chumbawumba

Rocking in the Free World – Neil Young

I Won’t Back Down – Tom Petty

The Pointer Sisters – I’m So Excited

BTW AdLib I have not been participating in Music Night that much of late not because the themes are bad, they’ve been great, but because my laptop with the new Flash does not play videos that well at all anymore. In fact Flash usually crashes. But fortunately I should be getting a new laptop soon so that will be rectified. The one I have now is about 7 years old.
