I don’t know about you but I tend to have a song in the back of my mind while I'm working. Sometimes I pick one up from the radio or TV, or I hear someone humming a tune and BAM! it’s stuck in my head J. But other times someone at work does something (either good or bad) to trigger a song in my mind and these have providied me with a few giggles!
So I thought it would be fun hearing from some readers what their work-related theme songs are. Here are a few nominations from Wannabe|Employee readers:
- I believe I can fly (R Kelly) ¯ “Because positive self-talk at work is never a bad idea J”
- River deep, mountain high (Celine Dion) ¯ "This pops up in my head when my boss expects me to move mountains for him and I wonder why I’m doing this job”
- Take a chance on me (ABBA) ¯ “I always think of this song when I’m hoping for a promotion!”
- Another day in paradise (Phil Collins) ¯ “When I walk into our office filled with frowns and no hope of a smile from anyone this song tends to pop into my mind”
- A beautiful mess (Jason Mraz) ¯ “The moment I realise I've made a big mistake in my work”
- Every little thing she does is magic (The Police) ¯ “I always think of this when my boss claims she is the one who came up with the bright solution to a problem when I know it was one of our team members”
- The only way out is through (Alanis Morissette) ¯ “For obvious reasons!”
- You're simply the best (Tina Turner) ¯ "When my manager gives me the afternoon off"
- I need a hero! (Bonnie Tyler) ¯ “There are days when I just don’t see how I’ll make it through my mountains of work on time, but when I think of this song I can laugh a little and then bite down to get it done!”
- Viva la Vida (Coldplay) ¯ “The song just gets my blood pumping every morning and it makes me feel like I can take over the world”
- What’s love got to do with it (Tina Turner) ¯ “When I remind myself that I don’t need to like my boss in order to do a good job”
Thanks so much for your feedback! You guys are very original! For those of you who missed the poll on twitter, any other nominations?
