Music that energizes you

What music gets you pumped and ready to take on that dreary cleaning (or your personal I really don't want to do that) task?

Here are a couple of mine










Ok so I could not do just two

The Hollies, "Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress"

Allan Clarke is the lead singer....1972



He retired after losing his voice. Here he is in black playing the guitar around 2000. As you can see I am a Hollies fan.

My "energy" mix has tons of music (I really need a lot of motivation for drudge work) so I just picked the top five recently most-played:

Beth Ditto & Gossip - Heavy Cross



Eric Clapton & B. B. King - Riding with the King



Sheryl Crow - Steve McQueen



The Dixie Cups - Iko Iko



Clutch - Electric Worry

Some more good ones. I had forgotten Iko Iko. Edgar Winter, Sheryl Crow and Long Cool Woman have been added to my directory.

Perhaps it is the result of shifting my location 1800 miles west and spending lots of time in Nebraska, but I have developed a suprising fondness for country music in the last year. Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Craig Morgan, etc. Pehaps it is a natural outgrowth of my appreciation of bluegrass.

Bumping this old thread rather than starting a new "what did you listen to in the 70s" one to bring you this amazing guitar solo, that I spent much of 1976/7 wearing out on my vinyl copy of the album. Quantum Jump was a British studio project band, but their guitarist, Mark Warner, is American. He even pops into the YouTube comments under the video to say hi.

How about a little Rolling Stones to start you up.

When all the customers leave after a big event, and it's just the pro's [food, wedding, cleaning, rental] I like to crank the Drive-By Truckers up loud. But I have been in a Texas frame of mind lately, Robert Earl Keen, James McMurtry, Ryan Bingham, etc...

And if my signature didn't give you the clue, I listen to the Grateful Dead almost every day. Since none of us are getting any younger, maybe 'Touch of Gray' would fit the bill.

How I feel when I don't have my internet. There is no one to talk to when the lines go down.

Another Grateful Dead fan here. I've seen them about 10 times and had to include a song from their "wall of sound" days with 28,000 watts of McIntosh amplifier power.
