    Our HS student do a community wide clean up project (e.g. raking leaves, preparing gardens, cleaning gutters of area residences).

    We want to make a video to share as kind of a commercial to put on our school's Facebook page.

    Imagine a minute or 2 of students dancing and singing with their rakes, work gloves, etc.

    We need a song. We've come up with "Taking Care of Business" by BTO. But, we were hoping for something more current.

    Any ideas for a more current song?

    I believe you're thinking too narrow...What about a high-energy song that's not necessarily about doing work?

    I immediately thought of Shake It Off by Taylor Swift.

    I think of Uptown Funk-Bruno Mars. We're using it in my Zumba and werq classes right now. It's so catchy and fun!

    What about Time of Our Lives, Centuries, Geronimo, something upbeat like that. Or is there a song that is a big deal with your kids right now, or an inside joke?

    For some reason all I can think of is the song "Work, B****" by Britney Spears. I would just go with something fun because that's what the kids will have fun doing.

    There's Work Hard, Play Hard by Wiz Khalifa, but you probably wouldn't want to use more than the brief intro.

    I was going to suggest the same thing but mostly because I just heard it on the radio and it's on my mind.
