The 'New Job' Playlist

Driving home from work today it occurred to me that I require a new playlist. Specifically, I need a 'new job' playlist. And I need it STAT.

I've spent the last week listening to a strange combination of faves: Kate Campbell (folk), Shane McAnally (country), the GLEE soundtrack, and the Gabe Dixon Band. They're all great, but they're all lacking a theme or tone that makes them suitable for my new playlist. I need songs that say, "Look out world, here I come!" Songs about optimism and strength. Songs that inspire, excite and motivate!

So here I am, a week and a half from starting a new chapter of my life and my career, and I'm reaching out to you to help me develop this list. Let's work together to create an awesome 'new job' playlist that energizes, gets my blood pumping, and hell, is searched for enough on the Internet that my web stats go up (at least a little). What? I'm a multi-tasker!

Send me your songs, people!

Congrats!

I like Mason Jennings' "Be Here Now" for any fresh start.
