Empire State of Mind Part 2...Alicia Keys, 2009
The time has finally come when I ought to celebrate the aughts and the music they brought for the a-z challenge this year
No disrespect to Jay-Z, but this is the version of Empire State of Mind I love best. It feels inspirational, empowering, and makes me feel like I can DO something. Unfortunately, I rarely know what. I seem to recall times when this song convinced me that I could last a few more minutes on the elliptical though. (Super lofty goals here.) There's nothing you can't do!
