This is Melanie’s maiden voyage running this music challenge. I cannot resist a good upbeat song so here we go!
There are so many songs with a great beat so I wanted to pick one that makes me want to get up and get moving! Katrina and the Waves definitely fits the bill.
When Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, sadly this song and the band got caught up in the sadness strictly by name association. News outlets dubbed the coverage of the storm “Katrina and the Waves”. The lead singer, Katrina Leskanich was disappointed by the association and hoped the song would become an anthem for the Gulf Coast recovery.
Today I choose to remember it as the wonderful upbeat song that it truly is.
