Whenever I’m coming up on the last stretch of a run or hitting a wall during a workout Get Me Bodied by Beyonce is hands-down my favorite pick me up. The minute this song starts playing, I immediately want to hit it hard (and dance!). I love the funky bass beat and upbeat tempo. When she breaks it down around minute 2:14, I really go into overdrive.
Perhaps part of the reason I like this song so much is I’m imagining pushing myself right into actually looking and dancing like Beyonce. Wishful thinking? Maybe…but it gets me moving.
With my sights set on running a half marathon this year, I expect this song will stay in heavy rotation.
Say what you will about this young lady, it’s hard to argue how she’s taken the entertainment world by storm. Granted, she probably won’t win any modesty awards any time soon. However, unlike most other celebrities, she’s managed to stay under the radar, avoiding much drama and the ever popular baby-before-marriage trend.
Side note – Was it just me or did anyone else notice how often the cameras kept panning to Beyonce and Jay-Z during the recent inaugural ceremony? If you’d been living under a rock, you might have assumed one of them had been elected President based on how much face time they received. Maybe it was subliminal advertising for her upcoming Super Bowl performance.
