May 17, 2007
It’s exam time again which means another excuse to listen to trashy, cheesy, inspirational, and invariably hilarious music in a pathetic attempt to relieve stress and imbue oneself with hollow confidence.
You’ve got the touch! You’ve got the PO-WER.
Here’s my current “exam psyche up” playlist:Kenny Loggins – Footloose (from the film Footloose)
Joe Esposito – You’re the Best (from The Karate Kid)
Stan Bush – The Touch (from Transformers, and Boogie Nights)
Desmond Child – Last of an Ancient Breed (from The Warriors)
Survivor – The Eye of the Tiger
Kenny Loggins – Highway to the Danger Zone (from Top Gun)
Paul Engemann – Scarface Push It To The Limit (from Scarface)
Van Halen – Dreams
Push it to the limit, yeah?
For some reason, The Touch seems to be playing at a slower speed than it should (I’ve checked the mp3 I uploaded and it’s fine) – most odd! Download it here, if you like.
