No song has me up and dancing like a fool than this classic by The Foundations. It's perfect for this playlist's theme of popping a smile on your face when you need it most, 6:30am on a Monday morning! Whether you’re up dancing and singing along while cooking a Sunday brunch for the family, or dancing and jiving to the beat in your studio apartment on Canal Street in NYC the Foundations really set the tone for the rest of the journey ahead.
Before you even think about letting out that dreaded mid-afternoon sigh halfway through your daily grind just remember to hit play on this classic get up and move hit. Heck, you may be the hero your side of the office needs, they just don’t know it yet. I challenge you hit that play button and turn up the knob on that dated external speaker of yours and watch your neighboring cubicle employees form a perfectly choreographer conga line. Okay, that may not happen… But you’ll never know unless you try, right? Bueller?

About the Curator - Jesse Simons
If there is one thing in all of existence that can possibly perk Jesse up more than a fresh dark roast coursing through his veins, it’s philanthropy work. His drive and passion for helping those in need is what he believes refines him the most as a strong, confident character.
Constantly inviting challenges to solve, you’ll be “cold pressed”, (caffeine is clearly essential), to find another person who looks as dashingly good looking in both a freshly pressed suit, and the same pair of sweatpants he’s put off washing from a few too many evenings couch surfing.
Jesse’s love for all genres of music started when he realized the power of music in the human experience. He believes each musician is the creative equivalent of a tectonic plate fault line. When musicians spread their art into the world, that fault line shifts, sending waves of raw emotion pouring from the track into the individuals absorbing it. Jesse came to the understanding that musicians weren’t just imperative to the human experience, they ARE the human experience.
From that day forward he has done everything in his power to help artists of all backgrounds and sound, spread their craft.
