You know, the one you blast loudly while you're working on your Nest badge?

For me, if it's a shorter task, pretty much anything from Journey
If something longer, Vivaldi's Four Seasons

Because we are cat people..... and because our cats often assist us in cooking and cleaning, if we sing ...we sing cat songs. Some are our own invention and some are standards. "What's New Pussycat" comes to mind as an example.

This is the fun sing that immediately came to mind with the thread title. Great movie. :)

 

But I clean to 80s, country, pop.. Lady Gaga ... Whatever comes up on the mp3 player that has a danceable beat or is good to sing along with. Definitely Journey!

I have a whole playlist of bouncy housework music. I like to bounce!!  ( Write me music to bounce to? )

Current favorites (not going to throw video links)  
Gogol Bardello "Start Wearing Purple" ;
Timbuk3 "Just Wanna Funk With Your Mind" ;
Stray Cats "Stray Cat Strut" and "Rock This Town" ;
Beat Farmers "Glad 'n Greasy" ;
Creedence Clearwater Revival "Looking Out My Backdoor" and "Up Around the Bend' ;
Dan Seals "I Wanna Bop with you Baby" :
Paul McCartney "Momma Miss America" ;
Tia Carrere "Ballroom Blitz" ;
and looking at my current list, another 220 + Songs.

Have to bounce while I work! And I sing with my music, off key, and probably out of tune.

Holy cow, that's the first thing that came to my mind too! That movie was perfect. How could anyone not fall for her?

Well, I suppose tidy people enjoy cleaning. They play happy bouncy music (and more power to them). And clean happily away.

I am not tidy people. My wife will swear an affidavit. So my cleaning music requires more fight in it, dark rum and sea cursin'. Stan Rogers, front and centre:
