Heartstrings of the Week: High-Pitched Hip Hop

*PPP = Pinky Promise Project for more PPP posts go HERE


So...I don't know how y'all feel about the new chipmunk movies. I saw the first one and it was ok. Kinda meh. My n&ns love 'em!

HOWEVER! The Chipmunks music has always been something near and dear to my heart since my childhood days of watching The Chipmunks cartoon (or as I called it "The Chickmunks"). Those were good times. My favorite episodes were the ones with The Chipettes. My older sisters always got to be Brittany & Eleanor and I was stuck being Jeanette. Lame.

My friend Jalene & I even busted out a sweet chipmunk album of our own via my karaoke machine when we were in high school. One of our songs is still the ringtone on my phone. Haha! Good times.

So, I'd like to introduce you to a song that my cousin Emily referred me to for my workout playlist: "We're The Chipmunks" the remix from their latest movie!

This video has the old 80's version and new hip hop version, but if you just want to hear the new one, which truly is THE BEST CYCLING/DANCE SONG on my "IT BURNS!!!" playlist then...

...forward to 1:25 in the video below.

P.S. Turn up the volume and get ready to rock out!
You won't be able to hold still.

This song has inspired many a dance party in my kitchen while making dinner.

So, here's a little PPP challenge for y'all - Get moving!!

How many Pinky Promise Project participants do we have on board?
Please, check the "I'm Too Lazy To Write About How Much I Like This ;)" box below if you are! Together we can reach our fitness goals!

We've got fun things comin' up

"Sweet Potato & Black Bean Fajitas"

Be excited. Be VERY excited!

I actually got some of the old school chipmunk cartoons for my kids to watch. It was a trip down memory lane for me. My kids loved them! You can't sit down for the songs! :)

I love your PPP. I'll participate! My roomies and I are doing Jillian 30-Day Shred. Talk about intensity! It's so great. Thanks for the music recommendation. I love a good dance/running song. :-)
