Happy {Walking} Weekend

Among some of my friends, we have a concept we like to discuss every so often: what's your walking song? Some of our answers change pretty often (mine), while others keep their song the same time after time. Here's the idea:

Walking Song: If life had background music, what song that would play when you made your big entrance into a room?

A movie scene concept. There's a crowded venue, the doors open, you walk in. Cue "______ ".
In a large group of people, this conversation can get pretty entertaining, as you can imagine. And last Friday, as we discussed this, I laughed harder and harder at the idea everyone had of themselves expressed through song. And not one of those songs wasn't an upbeat, nod-your-head, keep-you-on-your-toes, I-feel-good-about-myself tune. Not one single one

And what's so bad about that? Not a thing. Because if an awesome song really did play every time I walked into a crowded room, I'd feel pretty good about myself. Walking song = Confidence song? I'll take it.
So, in the spirit of the weekend, I'm letting you borrow a few of our walking songs. Some are old, some are new. Some will be changed tomorrow night, some have been used for a few years now. Some are dance tunes (my favorite) and some are feel-good tunes. And whether you're using them for a good-vibe kind of day, a party-worthy night, or just a pump-up jam session, I hope they work for you as well as they work for us (until you think of your own, of course, because everyone should know their walking song).

And me, I'm packing my Tory weekender and loading up the car for a Nashville road trip, a single-in-the-city type of weekend with some of my best friends right before Valentine's Day. Cheesy? Nah. (Or yeah, but whatever). 
So here they are. Walk along:

Um, I love this. I also love that YOUR friends participate and don't look at you like you're an alien when suggesting a walking song.

My walking song (today) would be Nelly - Move That Body.

But Who Dat Girl is a close 2nd. Or really anything suggesting I'm the beezneez.
