Manly, Positive Music

Dh and I bought bunk beds at IKEA tonight and have been busy all evening moving furniture in the girls' room so that it will sleep 3 (4 with the trundle bed pulled out). He asked me to play some good working music for him to listen to while assembling the furniture. Searches on the internet for "manly music" turned up a lot of heavy metal and songs with very objectionable lyrics. The playlist I finally put together on Grooveshark consists of the following songs. The furniture job is taking hours, so it's a good thing he likes the mix! If you're interested, it includes the following songs:

1) "Eye of the Tiger" by Journey
2) "A Man's Gotta Do" from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (warning - this is the only song on the list with a crude word)
3) "You're the Best Around" from The Karate Kid (the Ralph Macchio version, of course)
4) "I'll Make a Man Out of You" from Mulan
5) "We Do (The Stonecutter's Song)" from The Simpsons
6) "Trogdor" by Strong Bad
7) "The Final Countdown" by Europe
8) The Mission Impossible Theme
9) "Kung Fu Fighting"
10) "Macho Man" by Village People
11) "Big in Japan" by Alphaville
12) "Anton aus Tirol" by DJ Otzi
13) "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley
14) The A-Team theme
15) Knight Rider theme
16) Airwolf theme
17) Bonanza theme
18) Hawaii 5-0 theme
19) "I, Don Quixote" from Man of La Mancha
20) "Holding Out for a Hero"

  1. Oh, awesome list. I'm going to make a CD out of that eventually. Do you have a good "please motivate me to clean my house without feeling like a drudge" list? :)
