The 5 Minute Water Song Challenge - Save our Water

Tuesday, June 9, 2015

I'm a born and raised Californian and over the last year we have been bombarded with ads about the water drought. At first I thought, "what's the big deal?" but after seeing my favorite waterfalls drying up I've realized its a huge deal.  After doing research I've found that by not showering for longer that 5 minutes I can save up to 100 gallons of water a week. I was recently given a shower timer that is timed for 5 minutes and I've challenged myself to scrub-a-dub in 5 minutes or less. If you've known me for 5 minutes you'll know that I also love music and making list so I've compiled my top ten favorite songs (5 minutes or less) to shower to.

When I shower I'll pick a song, sing at the top of my lungs, and when it's over I'll be clean. Hopefully this will be a great start in my doing my part and keeping my beautiful state just that!

1. Still Into you - Paramore
2. Pretty hurts - Beyoncé (The video is 7 minutes long but she chats during it so it still makes the cut)
3. Lights and camera - Yuna
4. Furthest thing - Drake
5. Walk on - U2
6. Harder to breathe - Maroon 5
7. Young and beautiful - Lana Del Rey
8. Dog Days are Over - Florence and the Machine
9. You know you like it - DJ Snake & Aluna George
10. Lean on - Major Lazer
