“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “New-Fangled Follies”!

Hi, everyone!

We’re getting close to spring, and a new season brings all sorts of transitions to other new things. This is especially true for spring: the warm temperatures coming back, plants starting to grow again, birds coming back from migration and hatching their eggs, and more all give us a feeling of new beginnings and new life.

So this week, on an all-new Jammin’ with Jamie, we’re going to jam to…

NEW! NEW! NEW!

Next week is Valentine’s Day.

Now that you’ve returned from buying a gift in a panic, let’s move on to this week’s Jammin’ with Jamie theme!

In the first part of a two-part theme, we’ll be dodging Cupid’s arrows to the tune of…

It’s true love!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Marvelous Motivational Melodies”!

Hi, everyone!

It’s about the time of year when a lot of people start giving up on their New Year’s resolutions. Whether they’re voluntarily throwing in the towel, “taking a break,” or just completely forgot that they even made a resolution, by the end of January, many people find themselves disillusioned that the New Year isn’t bringing them all that they’d hoped.

But here’s the big secret: positive change and growth don’t just happen because you changed your calendar. Goals don’t achieve themselves. You have to make them happen.

As I’ve said many times before on Jammin’ with Jamie, one way to get and stay motivated is to get a great song in your head. Whether it’s just to distract you until you’ve started and you’re on a roll, or to keep you going after you’ve made that first step, having a song to make you smile and push harder can be indispensable.

But where can you find such songs? I’m glad you asked! And even if you didn’t, here’s the answer: just jam with us on this week’s Jammin’ with Jamie, where we’ll be presenting a mix of…

And you don’t even have to leave your house!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Dungeon Dance Ditties (Halloween 2016: Part 4)”!

Hi, everyone!

I always encourage my fellow Jammers to sing and dance along with me during our jam sessions. This week, the focus will be on the latter.

The amount of spooky songs that are somehow related to dancing is, well, shocking… pun intended!

So let’s give our muscles a jolt as we jam to…

A 5, 6, 7, 8…
