All my faves are on daily from the Dixie Chicks to Tim McGraw to Shania Twain.

Recently, they took it all the way back to 1992 and played Alabama’s “I’m in a Hurry.” Not familiar with it? Here is a taste of the lyrics:

I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why.

So, if you know anything about me, you know this is the story of my life . Good, bad or otherwise, I think this song is my anthem! No, seriously.

Now, don’t get anthem confused with the song that best defines me as a person, which team members at HMA assigned to themselves here for various reasons a few years back (yes, mine really is Bitch by Meredith Brooks). Click here to see Abbie, Scott and Rachel’s songs, too.

But I digress.

So, I told you my anthem. What’s yours? Our @HMA_PR team shares their anthem and some lyrics as to why – and you should, too.


Scott: Hootie and the Blow Fish’s “Hold My Hand”

With a little peace, and some harmony

We'll take the world together

We'll take 'em by the hand

'Cause I've got a hand for you

'Cause I wanna run with you

 We'll take a walk together

Walk the road awhile, 'cause

'Cause I've got a hand for you

I've got a hand for you

'Cause I wanna run with you


Abbie: Martina McBride’s “This One’s for the Girls”

This one's for the girls

 This is for all you girls about twenty-five

In a little apartment, just trying to get by

Living on dreams and spaghetti-o's

Wondering where your life is gonna go

 This one's for the girls

Who've ever had a broken heart

Who've wished upon a shooting star

You're beautiful the way you are

This one's for the girls

Who love without holding back

Who dream with everything they have

All around the world

This one's for the girls

 This is for all you girls about forty-two

Tossing pennies into the Fountain of Youth

Every laugh line on your face

Made you who you are today


Rachel: Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”

 You better lose yourself in the music, the moment

You own it, you better never let it go

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime you better

 Success is my only option, failures not

Mom, I love you, but this trail has got to go, I cannot grow old in Salem's lot

So here I go is my shot

Feet fail me not 'cause maybe the only opportunity that I got


Sara: Calvin Harris and Ne-Yo’s “Let’s Go”

 Let's go

Make no excuses now, I'm talking here and now, I'm talking here and now

Let's go!

Your time is running out, I'm talking here and now, I'm talking here and now

It's not about what you've done, it's about what you doing

It's all about where you going, no matter where you've been, let's go!
