Everyday we run, jump, walk, spin, and go round and round (?) so it’s no surprise that music covers these same themes. Either we are running towards love or away from it, jumping for joy or from pain, or we all spin right round (baby)…we are all moving. These awesome tunes from the best decade ever (the ’80s, duh) cover all sorts of movement and mood. Please let them charge up your Friday night and power you through the weekend…no matter what movement you choose.
