Music Monday: It’s Almost Halloween and to be Back in a New York Groove

For the past few weeks, I’ve been sharing my favorite Halloween songs, however, this week I decided to share only one song since It’s Almost Halloween.

All right, I lied. I’m sharing a second classic Halloween song, I Want Candy, because I really do want candy. To control my family’s sugar intake, I held off buying candy until this week. As a result, I think it made me crave sugar even more!

In five days, I will be flying to New York to finally run in the New York Marathon! If you have followed this blog for some time, you know that my NYC marathon journey has been a long road. But very soon my NYC marathon will come true and I’m beyond excited. Next Sunday, I will be back in a New York Groove.

I seriously cannot believe that the moment I’ve waited for four years is only days away. My husband and my oldest daughter will travel with me so we can celebrate her 13th birthday in the Big Apple. This weekend will be quite the celebration with a mere 50,000 birthday party guests along for the ride!

In New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York!
New York!
New York!

    I am so excited for you and NYC marathon!! WHEEE! I’m applying to the lottery this year! (And most likely several more years….)

  2. Stacey says:

    Excellent picks! I hear you on the candy. Dying for some reseese pb cups but holding off so they don’t become breakfast & pre-dinner nibblies. Good luck at the marathon & have fun!

    The first time I heard Empire State of Mind was on the show Glee. It was catchy. I had no idea who sang it. Thanks for posting the vid. Now I know!

    And wishing the best on your run!!!

    Your other tunes are new for me, but I totally love your last tune I had to play it twice. JayZ and Alicia Keyes oh yeah I really can dance to that one. Thanks for the boogie girlfriend sorry I’m late, but better late then never I always say! 🙂

    Denise, you so rock! I can’t wait to hear all about your 1st NY marathon. That sounds so exciting…and I’m not a runner, as you know. So, you go girl!! Love your great fun, Halloween tunes for this week. Keep the music thumping and your feet pounding the pavement! Good luck to you, dear!!
