Do You Have a Getting-Ready Song?

When I get ready for work, I'm usually listening to NPR. But when it's time to get ready for a party or a date, I like to turn on a few tunes. Lately, it's been an oddball mix that gets me in a festive mood, and I've been known to rhythmically straighten my hair to the beat. (I know, ridiculous.) What about you? Do you have a getting-ready theme song?

Weekday AMs I'm listening to the sound of my husband snoring, but if I go out, there's nothing like a little OK Go "You're So Damn Hot" to bolster spirits.

My hair takes 1.5 hours to straighten, so Friday afternoon I get to sit all by myself for 90 wonderful minutes listening to music from my junior high years, aka peaches and cream by 112, nsync pop, mandy moore candy...etc. every other day i'm usually an indie rock girl, but fridays are special :)

Used to be Annie Lennox but these days I'm diggin' Amy Winehouse. I've got all kinds of playlists on my iPod which is wired so that I can listen to it through my home's sound system so depending on the mood, I've got it covered.
