Seize the MonDay: Music to bring on the day

Tomorrow is Monday and we got to rise up to the challenge.  Bring on the day!

Mañana es lunes y debemos enfrentar nuestros retos.  ¡Oye lunes, dale!

Hay dos videos buenas para empezar el día o para enfrentar el incio de nuestra semana.  Imaginate que tienes una banda personal; aprovecha tu día.

Eye of the Go-getter by Survivor

Glen! Glen! Glen! Glen! … (and more) Glen!

Glen’s the man
going to work.
Got his tie
Got a vision
Middle management is right in his grasp
Its a dream he will never let die
Glen’s the man of the hour
He’s the king of his cube
Status quo reports have finally met their rival
Burning the candle at both ends
on his way to the top
He knows that one day he just could become

Eye of the Tiger by Survivor

Risin’ up, back on the street
took my time, took my chances
went the distance
now i’m back on my feet
just a man and his will to survive
So many times, it happened too fast
you trade your passion for glory
don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
you must fight just to keep them alive
1-it’s the eye of the tiger
it’s the thrill of the fight
risin’ up to the challenge
of our rival
and the last known survivor
stalks his prey in the night
and his fortune must always be
eye of the tiger
Face to face, out in the heat
hangin’ tough, stayin’ hungry
they stack the odds
still we take to the street
for the kill with the skill to survive
(repeat 1)
Risin’ up straight to the top
had the guts, got the glory
went the distance
now i’m not gonna stop
just a man and his will to survive
(repeat 1)
The eye of the tiger

Explicamos unas partes de la cancion en nuestra proxima entrada.  Pero en breve:

Some has the eye of the tiger = eye of a killer or someone who doesn’t stop until they have achieved their goal.  (It could be a bad thing!)

A go-getter = a person who overcomes obstacles and gets things done; they deliver results.
