Tunes For Tuesday – A Dirrty Dozen Two-Fer

Welcome to Tunes For Tuesday!

Music, Tunes For Tuesday

This past Friday and Saturday I was a little busy running the So Cal Ragnar Relay (which I will recap soon) but in honor of my Dirrty Dozen team, I’m featuring 2 songs today – one for each “r” in our team name.  These two songs were the most often heard songs on the radio while we were in our van.  It’s not that I love (or even like these songs) but I know that they will now remind me of a most fabulous time with the ladies of Van 2 of the Dirrty Dozen team.  Thanks Jamie, Kat, Carrie, Jill and Debbie!

Hope  you enjoy:

Song 1: “Happy” by Pharrell Williams

Personally, I can’t stand this song and I think we must have heard it about 8,000 times.  Being new to LA this video is fun because I recognize some of the areas.


Song 2: “Talk Dirty To Me” by Jason Derulo

First, I have no idea who Jason Derulo even is (except for the fact that he’s dating former American Idol contestant Jordin Sparks) so that makes me feel old.  Second, am I the only one who recognizes the sample of “No Diggity” by Blackstreet in this song (that we also heard 3 million times over a 36 hour period)?

What song is really irritating you right now?

    I still love that “Happy” came on my playlist right when I hit the ‘one mile to go’ marker on my last leg. It was perfect.

    I hear the “No Diggity” in the song too – that’s cuz I’m old too :-)

    Love this – - I’m still coming down from the weekend. Sad that it’s over.

    I think your 2nd video link isn’t linking to the right song, you might want to check it out. recently posted…Ragnar Socal!!!My Profile

      Thanks Carrie! I changed the 2nd video. It seems I was so happy that I played the “Happy” video twice.

    I’m so old I don’t even get the No Diggity reference :-)

    It makes me happy that from now on that will be the song that will remind me of our experience. I never thought I would be so excited about it all (more I thought of Ragnar as something to survive).

      Agreed (about the experience not about the age thing). The more I think about Ragnar, the more I like it in comparison to general races.

    I hear the No Diggity in it! Love that these were in your van….NEXT ragnar I”ll bring an extra auxiliary cord for the other van. I played DJ the whole time. Gillian and I sang at the top of our lungs….and the most played song was “Show Me’ by Kid Ink and Chris Brown tagline #pantiestotheside :)

      I’m going to admit that I don’t know “Show Me”. #old
