Here are a few of my favorite motivational songs for coping with setbacks.
Cee Lo, the safe for work version:
0:45: “Yeah I’m sorry, I can’t afford a Ferrari, But that don’t mean I can’t get you there.”
Just the rhyme of sorry and Ferrari makes me feel invincible.
The Sara Bareilles version is completely awesome:
And this classic f-u song. Prescription: play 0:35-0:45 over and over again (“I toasted you, said, honey, we may be through, but you’ll never hear me complain!”) until you are floating on a blissful cloud of insouciance, and call me in the morning.
My favorite F-U song is Bob Dylan’s Don’t Think Twice it’s Alright.
“I’m not saying you treated me unkind. You coulda done better but I don’t mind. You just kinda wasted my precious time” is such a beautiful F-U.
Oh, yeah, that is great one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTVwGNqbBYg
Now added to my super random “Easy Listening LK” playlist. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4ifSrE8iSg&list=PLD8qfxAp2KXoEJhj1mPxI4Y_aAkHUBV8E
Well, the best F-U on YouTube isn’t a song — it’s a narration to some lovely music … here’s the link ,,, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Nx0sQLl7IY … it’s very informative and character building. One of the funniest things about this video is the person who introduced me to it. That would be a young man you know very well. He’s 24 now, and lives in California.
