New Song Topic or a lack of motivation

First off, I’ve got to say that I didn’t spend hours scouring song lists and lyrics before writing this, so if you know of a song that addresses the subject of this post, please leave me a reply.  Until those replies start rolling in, though…

Ever wonder why people are getting so fat?  Right.  Eating too much, eating the wrong things, no exercising, blah, blah, blah.  The politicians want to blame the marketing wizards for those sexy Hardees commercials and the Ronald McDonalds.  Even the First Lady is giving TV stations like Disney and Nickelodeon a hard time about showing ads for junk food.  Me?  I blame the music industry.  They make plenty of songs about kissing, falling in love, falling out of love, partying, dancing, driving, sitting around doing nothing, drinking, and being stupid among other things, but they don’t really have any songs to motivate us to hit the gym or the track or the bike trail.  The video for Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical” showed her bouncing around in workout clothes, but it wasn’t about that kind of workout.  A number of songs have running or walking in the title, but only one would really get you a good amount of exercise: I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) …because they’d walk 500 miles and they would walk 500 more.

So, there you have it…a really long, well-thought out dissertation on how it is the RIAA’s fault that people are getting fat.
