Get Psyched Mix


Many times you aren’t quite in the mood to be awesome and need a small boost or nudge to get you back on track.  Perhaps you’re tired, had a bad day or otherwise having an issue finding motivation.  In these cases a mix-cd is just what the doctor ordered as all of us find that there are certain songs that can get us out of a slump and back to our preferred selves.

Below is my Top 10 list of songs I’ll listen to on my way downtown to get psyched and otherwise in the mood to socialize, flirt and be legen…. wait for it… DARY!  While there are obvious songs I’ve omitted these I feel are the best to get you in the mood for sarging the town.

Barney Stinson’s (How I Met Your Mother) Get Psyched Mix

Now in no particular order:

1. She’s a Study – TV Eyes

In the time it takes to think of what to say (of what to say)
She could walk away
And you’ll be all alone like yesterday
Shoulda said it anyway
In the time it takes to think of what to say (of what to say)
She could walk away
And you’ll be all alone like yesterday
Ah, say something today

2. Sargin’ – Turkish and Wade

Sargin, it’s sorta like a business
Sargin, 9 and 10s on the hitlist
Sargin, more routines than a gymnist
Listen up cuz you don’t want to miss this

3. Breaking the Habit – Linkin Park

Memories consume
Like opening the wound
I’m picking me apart again
You all assume
I’m safe here in my room
Unless I try to start again

[Bridge:]
I don’t want to be the one
The battles always choose
‘Cause inside I realize
That I’m the one confused

[Chorus:]
I don’t know what’s worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream.
I don’t know why I instigate
And say what I don’t mean.
I don’t know how I got this way
I know it’s not alright.
So I’m breaking the habit,
I’m breaking the habit
Tonight

4. Suit Up – Barney Stinson

I know what you’re thinking

What’s Barney been drinking?
That girl was smoking hot

Yes I coulda nailed her
But no it’s not a failure
‘Cuz there’s one thing she is not

To score a ten would be just fine
But I’d rather be dressed to the nines
It’s a truth you can’t refute
Nothing suits me like a suit

5. Remember the Name – Fort Minor

This is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill
Fifteen percent concentrated power of will
Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain
And a hundred percent reason to remember the name!

He’s a prick, he’s a cock
The type woman want to be with, and rappers hope he get shot
Eight years in the making, patiently waiting to blow
Now the record with Shinoda’s taking over the globe
He’s got a partner in crime, his shit is equally dope
You wont believe the kind of shit that comes out of this kid’s throat

6. I Gotta Feeling – Black Eyed Peas

I gotta feeling (ooooo hoooo) that tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good good night [x2]

Tonight’s the night (Hey!)
Let’s live it up (Let’s live it up)
I got my money (I’m paid)
Let’s spend it up (Let’s spend it up)

Go out and smash it (Smash it)
Like Oh My God (Like Oh My God)
Jump off that sofa (C’mon)
Let’s get get OFF

Fill up my cup (Drank)
Mozoltov (La’ Chaim)
Look at her dancing (Move it Move it)
Just take it off

7. Story of a Lonely Guy – Blink 182

Remember when I was in
The grocery store, now’s my time
Lost the words, lost the nerve,
Lost the girl, left the line
I would wish upon a star
But that star, it doesn’t shine
So read my book, with a boring ending
A short story of a lonely guy

Who fell behind

She makes me feel like it’s raining outside
And when the storms gone I’m all torn up inside
I’m always nervous on days like this like the prom
I get too scared to move cause I’m a ****in’ boy

8. In Her Eyes – Basshunter

It’s a Saturday night
Nothing will go wrong
But if it does do I care?
I just don’t know how to run
It’s a Saturday night
And I hope you believe
My heart is calling your name
So hear me out when I say

I can see it in her eyes
When she turns to me and smiles
Everything feels so right
Until the morning light

9. What is Love – Haddaway

What is love
Oh baby, don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more
Oh, baby don’t hurt me
Don’t hurt me no more

What is love
Yeah

10. I’m on a Boat – Lonely Island

I’m on a boat motherfucker take a look at me
Straight flowin on a boat on the deep blue sea
Bustin five knots, wind whippin out my coat
You can’t stop me motherfucker cause I’m on a boat

Take a picture, trick (trick) I’m on a boat, bitch (bitch)
We drinking Santana champ, cause it’s so crisp (crisp)
I got my swim trunks, and my flippie-floppies
I’m flippin burgers, you at Kinko’s straight flippin copies

I’m ridin on a dolphin, doin flips and shit
The dolphin’s splashin, gettin e’rybody all wet
But this ain’t Seaworld, this is real as it gets
I’m on a boat motherfucker, don’t you ever forget

That’s my Top 10 Psyched Songs list as per what I have in my playlist in my car.  I’m sure i’m missing plenty so feel free to chime in and let me know what I’m missing!
