For me, a good old rock and roll jam wakes me up in the morning, energizes the batteries. This should be fun. If you could pick any song, which one would you choose to crank up three minutes (Average song length) before your students stroll into class? You have three minutes...go!

Right now my song choice is "Kinky Reggae" by Bob Marley and the Wailers. A nice smooth rhythm to get me going.

"Begin the day with a friendly voice,
A companion unobtrusive
Plays the song that's so elusive
And the magic music makes your morning mood."

Shining Star
Earth, Wind, and Fire
You're a shining star,
no matter who you are,
shining bright to see,
what you can truly be.
