Some years ago I worked with large call centres and because they were built on the American model they would often start the shift with some power music to 'get everyone in the mood'.
OK, so playing 'eye of the tiger' doesn't get me all 'in the mood to sell' but playing some good music that you enjoy can influence your mood.
If I'm feeling down then Peter Gabriel's 'Red Rain' is great to put on loud and sing to.
But today, I was flicking through the old ipod (can I really have downloaded from CD over 5000 tracks?) and I was in a P!nk mood.
And what have I found? I now have a great line that should be written on every young girl's heart; 'Outcasts and girls with ambition, That's what I wanna see'.
