In honor of Moms weekend here at UIUC, WPGU’s web staff has put together a collection of songs dedicated to our mama’s. When we hear these tunes, we cannot help but think of the wonderful women that raised us.
I always wondered how my mom did it all, from getting my butt in gear every morning to getting to the office on time. The answer, unbeknownst to me, was simple. A lifestyle, hardstyle to be honest.
Between dropping my brother and I off at school in the minivan and kicking corporate butt my mom, yes the woman herself, blasted only the best DJs (the more tattoos they had the better) and shook her perfectly highlighted hair to the technotronics. It’s no wonder that I do the same when I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. But what was her favorite song, and consequently mine? No Beef, by Afrojack. It’s a quick reminder that we “won’t break down tonight”.
