If you had to choose a theme song for your upcoming year, what would it be?

At New Year’s, my friend and marketing guru, Janet Wallace, asks herself this question each year.  As part of her Life As You Climb Corps, she asked our group to name ours.   

The answer came quickly for me:  “You’re a New Song” by Warpaint.


Warpaint at Primavera 2014

When Warpaint came on stage at Primavera Sound, I cheered, having fallen in love with the band the minute I heard them on the festival’s playlist.

They greeted us from the big stage, as we stood under the fading blue of the Barcelona sky, and proceeded to wow the crowd — not with sparkles or pop, but with deep musicality, nether-worldly vocals  and excellent grooves.   

They are insouciant, joyful, fun — standing in their power.  

My kind of women!

In this video, they are dancing and singing through my New York — the Village and the Lower East Side.

Singing and dancing, mugging for the camera, the video is a celebration of female friendship.  The song is a celebration of female empowerment and encouragement.

I am reminded of my younger self, carefree and not a little silly.   

This is exactly the song I want to sing to you. 

“You’re a new song, baby!  You’re a new song.  You’re a new song — to me.”

I’m here to encourage you and empower you to step forward into your purpose.  And because I know you can do it and I want to hear your voice, you’re a new song — to me. 

What’s your theme song going to be this year?
