Music on the Go…


I’m constantly listening to music. In the car, in bed, on the computer, on my phone, and on the stereo at home!! We are a music loving family!

Belle and Makka dancing to Pink!

In the car we have on rotation the Metro Church CD and One Direction (dont judge, The kids love One Direction!!) so when I was contacted last month to review the new Telstra for MOG project, I was instantly intrigued and wanted to know more! I’ve tried other programs like this (Spotify) however I like how this was an Australian product directed to Australian consumers!

What is MOG?

MOG? I know the name is unusual however the music on there certainly isnt!

You’ll roll over to a monthly subscription and charges will apply unless you cancel. Even better, MOG streaming counts as unmetered data for most Telstra broadband and mobile customers. Data charges apply for other users.

What is Made By MOG Juice?

To make some noise about MOG, they have come up with a juicy idea.

Rock, pop, hip hop, grunge, folk. Whatever your preference, age and stage, I think we can all agree that music has the power to work miracles. And we’re not just talking about the effect it has on people. Studies show that playing music to plants makes them grow better. I know for certain that my mood can change just be listening to certain types of music. It has a calming effect on me! You’ll often see me having the music going in the morning while we are getting ready for school! Helps get the kids moving too, no TV for us in the morning!!

So what do you get when you play cool tunes from MOG to an orchard full of fruit trees? Darn fine juice, that’s what.

Sounds like rubbish you say? French scientist Yannick Van Doorne, a practitioner of ecosonics (an agricultural technique that encourages plant growth through sound) has proven that it is legitimate.

Together with a western Sydney fruit farmer, Yannick and MOG teamed up to bring the science to life… and bring you a very special fruit juice ‘Made by MOG’.

We were given the change to test drive these juices for the kids and myself! The kids loved the labels, especially when I explained to them that they were names of songs and those songs had been played to the fruit that was used to make their drink! A little information overload for the kids though! They just wanted the treat of having juice!

  3. Oooh! Ok, my current go-to song is Let Her Go by Passenger because, it makes me appreciate what I have instead of regretting what I don’t have. Sort of what the song is all about.

  7. Don’t Stop me now by Queen is an oldie but so boppy and can get me motivated for anything especially when you want that exercise!

  8. I am totally loving ‘Global Concepts’ by Robert De Long, it just gets me going in the car, and even after a average day it gets me dancing in the car.

  9. My current go to song is ‘what a feeling” by Irene Cara from the film “flashdance”.It’s so inspiring and makes me determined to achieve whatever dream I have. i can ‘take my passion and make it happen”.

  10. Take a Card by The Preachers. An amazingly peppy song to get you going, it’s new but with an old feel

  11. Young Volcanoes by Fall Out Boy. It’s the greatest song of their entire career, and it’s so uplifting.

  12. My go to song has always been Watch Me Shine by Joanna Pacitti – it reminds me that I am in charge of my life and gives me the confidence to go after what I want!

  13. “Not Perfect” by Tim Minchin is my inspirational song.

    I have to be happy in my own skin: It’s not perfect – but it’s mine.

  14. My current go to song is a song by a band called “Stick to your guns”, the song is entitled ‘We still believe’. It’s a bit of an odd choice, as it’s not mainstream music; but is extremely uplifting!

    • I havent heard of this one! I’ll be sure to check it out though! I like uplifting songs!!

      Good Luck and thanks for entering!

  18. The Potbellez – Saved in a bottle. so uplifting and energetic, and the name is quite ironic

  19. My inspirational song Is mango tree by angus and Julia stone

  20. For me I always go to These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ by Nancy Sinatra. Total attitude!

  21. 4 Non Blondes’ WHAT’S UP – The song really speaks for itsself when I am having ‘one of those days’ that a 3.30 soup can’t generate enough girl power to keep on powering on for the rest of the day!

  22. My “go-to” song is definitely “You’re The Best” by Joe Esposito. You may recognise it as the song from the original Karate Kid movie in the “bully butt-kicking” montage scene. How much more motivational can you get than:

    “You’re the best around and nothing’s gonna keep you down!”

    It makes me imagine that I’m a karate expert and I’m in the middle of an epic battle with stress and discouragement and I’m kicking their BUTTS! The corny power rock ballad music always cheers me up too. =)

  23. Lately when I need some inspiration I listen to ‘Proud’ by Heather Small.

    “What have you done today to make you feel proud? It’s never too late to try!”

    Give it a listen, so inspiring! x

  24. “Close to you.” by The Carpenters is a beautiful calming song is listen to when I am cleaning up the kitchen after the morning onslaught.

  25. It my life by Bon jovi always gets me raring to go, it even helps my out of bed in the morning as my alarm tone.

  26. When I want to get motivated and insipred I listen to ‘Give peace a chance’ by John Lennon, inspirational artist inspirational song. Need I say more……

  27. “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” by Kelly Clarkson – always lifts me up when I’m down in the dumps, and simply inspires me to be better every single day, even when times aren’t tough.

  28. “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia. It’s one song that my girls and I can agree to have on in the car (it sure beats the VERY repetitive ABC for kids CDs), my daughters are gorgeous when they sing it and it’s a nice reminder to me that everything always works out at the end of the day!

  29. My go to song is “Clarity” by John Mayer. I affectionately refer to it as my ‘happy song’. I have been listening to it for years, but I still get a tingle every time I hear it.

  30. At the moment, when my 5 kids are doing my head in, (hey you KNOW the kind of day I mean!) my go-to song is “Turn up the Love” by Far East Movement because its got an awesome beat, and dancing around to it makes me happy and cheers me up!

  31. Greatest Love of All by Whitney Houston
