“Old Time Rock & Roll”
by Bob Seger
Get things started with an iconic sock slide. Kick off your shoes, throw on your shades and make sure “Old Time Rock & Roll” by Bob Seger is blaring in the background. You can leave your pants on if you want, we’d all appreciate it, give yourself a few minutes to embody some old school Joel Goodson.
by Christina Aguilera
Follow up "Old Time Rock & Roll" with the cleaning sensation, by Christina Aguilera, “Dirty.” Cause your house is dirty as ... well you know. Let Christina pump you up and get those arms sweeping, dusting and vacuuming.
Next, remember why you’re doing all this hard work with OutKast’s “Roses.” Because we all like to think our **** don’t stink, but it does.
"Takin' Care of Business”
by Bachman-Turner Overdrive
When you start to declutter, you’ll have some tough choices to make when it comes to getting rid of sentimental items, just remember Michael Corleone’s famous advice: when you go to the mattresses, it’s not personal it’s business. Let Bachman-Turner Overdrive help you stay focused with their hit “Takin’ Care of Business.”
“Another One Bites the Dust”
You’re going to need some support while cutting the ties to all that lame junk you haven’t been able to let go of and no one knows how to conquer sadness like Queen. Crank up “Another One Bites the Dust” and you’ll find cutting ties a whole lot easier.
"Cleanin' Out the Closet”
Next, move on to your closets, the silent but deadly habitats of all hoarders. You don’t need all 45 shirts, honestly, most of them don’t even fit. Time to free yourself from the burden of washing, drying, ironing and folding all of those clothes. Give them hell with Eminem’s “Cleanin’ Out the Closet.”
About now you’re starting to get tired, thinking about how much nicer it would be to take a little nap in the couch. But don’t let yourself falter now. Stay strong and as your motivation starts to fade, rely on the Kings of Rock, Queen, to get you over the hump. Listen to “Bohemian Rhapsody” and try not to sing along, just take it easy on the guitar solo sometimes all that head banging will give you a headache.
by Red Hot Chili Peppers
You need to keep your energy going strong through the last leg of this cleaning adventure. And a little Red Hot Chili Peppers will go a long way toward boosting your moral. Their song “Can’t Stop” will make sure you don’t stop.
by Flo Rida
As you near the end of your [trip] you’ll start to feel the elation that comes with having a clean house, let Flo Rida’s “My House” carry you through to the finish line.
"Here Comes the Sun”
by The Beatles
Finally, when all is done reward yourself with a cold beer and the Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun.”
