Let’s Loosen Up a Bit

IMG_0187

If you couldn’t already tell, I’m refining my format for the FACS Tune-Up/Soundtrack Project as I go along.  I hope you’ll be patient with me as I work through exactly how my daily posts are going to flow.

My original thought was to select a topic for each week and to make all of the song selections relate to that topic.  That’s why all of the songs so far have had to do with healthy foods, weight loss, etc.  I even went so far as to consider making the songs relate to a FACS learning standard.  How boring is that??!!  Well, my plan now is to be more random in the selections I share.  I hope that the element of surprise will make checking out the daily posts more interesting.  So we’ll see how this goes for a couple of days.

One organizational note—Each song selection will be linked to a playlist.  The playlist categories will be the FACS content areas.  I’ll share the complete playlist information tomorrow.  For today, enjoy this selection from one of my favorite groups of all time—Journey.  I can think of lots of lesson topics to which this song could be linked.  Hope you can, too.

Working on a positive attitude.

Runnin’ out of self-control
Gettin’ close to an overload
Up against a no win situation
Shoulder to shoulder, push and shove
I’m hangin’ up my boxin’ gloves
I’m ready for a long vacation

Be good to yourself when, nobody else will
Oh be good to yourself
You’re walkin’ a high wire, caught in a cross fire
Oh be good to yourself

When you can’t give no more
They want it all but you gotta say no
I’m turnin’ off the noise that makes me crazy
Lookin’ back with no regrets
To forgive is to forget
I want a little piece of mind to turn to

Be good to yourself when, nobody else will
Oh be good to yourself
You’re walkin’ a high wire, caught in a cross fire
Oh be good to yourself
Be good to yourself when, nobody else will

Have a Rockin’ FACS!
