Walk up song and why: Man In the Mirror - I was a big Michael Jackson fan as a kid, and this was one song was one of my favorite MJ songs. I would listen to this song when I needed some motivation to do my best to make the world better: “I'm starting with the man in the mirror; I'm asking him to change his ways; And no message could have been any clearer; If you want to make the world a better place; Take a look at yourself and make the change.”She, Her, Hers
