imagesThanks for all your Top Ten Tune suggestions, here are some of them:

'Maybe Tomorrow (the tune from the Littlest Hobo, anyone remember that!)– Terry Bush (especially for the line 'Every step I make, I make a new friend, Can't stay for long, just turn around and I'm gone again')'

'On a good day 'Walking back to Happiness' and on a bad day 'Highway to Hell'

'John Denver's 'Rhinestone Cowboy' is a good walking song "... I've been walkin' these streets so long, I know every crack in these dirty old sidewalks of Broadway ..."'

'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life  has been a favourite, good whistle and walk along tune'

'My favourite song at the moment has got to be 'Party Rock Anthem' currently number 2 in the charts by LMAFO this certainly gets you in the mood to clock up some steps and the words 'Everyday I'm shuffling' is a definite motivator for the pedometer challenge.'

Congratulations to Anna Bennett, Team Balgownie Babes at Aberdeen City Council for winning our prize draw. A box of tea break treats is on it's way, enjoy.

So here are your Top Ten Walking Tunes! Some are walking related but some are just good energetic tracks to help you get a spring in your step and a few more miles under your belt. Some golden oldies and some current chart toppers too. Have a listen or a sing song in the office!
