This past weekend my husband and I tackled the house for a deep clean. When we get together for a cleaning expedition like this it often ends up in someone getting hurt, lots of music, and being completely exhausted for the entire week.
Spring cleaning was upon us. Pulling out the sectional, mopping, dusting, all the little details that don’t get done every day – or even every week.
While I was in the middle of cleaning up the war zone my toddler and his brother call a bedroom it struck me. Cleaning is never motivating without good music.
It gets me in the mood to clean, because lets face it… if we aren’t in the mood, it won’t get done, right?
Armed with Pandora on my laptop and my iTunes library I went to town. By the end of the day as we were putting our cleaning supplies away and getting ready for dinner I asked my readers… what songs do you love to listen to when you are cleaning your house? It may seem like a silly question but there were some awesome answers.
These are my personal favorites… comment below with yours!
Black Dog by Led Zeppelin 1 of 10I have a weakness for Led Zeppelin, but this song just makes me want to move and dance around. Nothing like dancing around the kitchen with a mop and bucket right?

Dude Looks Like a Lady by Aerosmith 2 of 10Ever just want to pretend you are the old version of Steven Tyler dancing around with the microphone stand? Tie some bandanas on your broom and do it up! HA!

Anything off of the Kanye West College Dropout Album 3 of 10I could listen to anything off of this album, it was one of the first that Kanye West put out before he got all... unique... should I say? I just love good music with a good beat to it, and this album is up beat and will put you in a great mood!

Call Me by Blondie 4 of 10Call me!!!! I really love anything by Blondie thanks to my father, but I think it is the actual beat and music to this one that makes me want to move mountains... or the couch!
Download Call Me on iTunes
Anything off of the Sorry For Party Rockin’ album by LMFAO 5 of 10I don't care what anyone says... I love these guys. Their music may be raunchy sometimes, but the beats and the music itself is like none other out today. It makes me want to dance right out the door and to the closest night club. Although you probably don't want to listen to it around your toddler!

I’m Just a Girl by No Doubt 6 of 10I am about to date myself with this one... but there is nothing like cranking up your favorite song from elementary school to get you into the groove.

Sin Wagon by the Dixie Chicks 7 of 10Nothing like some good country music to get the blood flowing right? I have a strange taste in music, but I have a special place for country after living in the south!

So Fresh and So Clean by Outkast 8 of 10What better than a song about cleaning? Well with the words "so fresh and so clean clean" in it? I love this one!

Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band 10 of 10Just because country has a special place in my heart I had to include my favorite Zac Brown Band song. Of course it always puts me in the "active" mood!
