The Soundtrack to Your Startup Journey

Startacus RSS

by Startacus Admin

In keeping with our recent efforts to dial up the funny factor on Startacus we’ve created a hypothetical record label ‘Startachord’ to create an album which would best describe the rollercoaster journey of starting your own business!

The resulting mish-mash mix-tape is the product of hours of lively debate in the Startacus office, which was regrettably coupled with several equally soundtrack for starting a businesslively (and painful) impromptu performances. Finally after much soul-searching, and indeed ear-bleeding, we’ve come to a consensus. I give you our debut release... the Soundtrack to Your Startup Journey.

1. Isolation

Celine Dion - All by myself. There were a huge number of choices for this spot, but nothing quite says isolation like this most self indulgent, feeling sorry for oneself ballad.

2. Confusion

Confusion - The Zutons. If you’re anything like us you’ll have this one on repeat!

3. Pivoting

Travis - Turn. Once we came to an agreement about what "pivoting" actually means, this was a no brainer... the chorus doesn't leave much room for ambiguity.

4. Eureka

KT Tunstall - Suddenly I see.  In honour of Archimedes, “Rubber Ducky You're the One” was also a strong contender, but alas there can only be one winner!

5. Happiness

Imagine dragons - I'm on top of the world. The similarly titled (and more grammatically correct) “I'm on the top of the world” by The Carpenters would do equally well.

6. Money

Abba - Money! Money! Money! A terrible cliché? Or would it have been more of a cliché if we had picked something else? You decide!

7. Social Media

Oasis - All around the world. I don’t think there is much explanation needed for this one!

8. Finding your audience

Oliver (the musical )- Consider Yourself. There’s nothing like a good old fashioned spontaneous street sing-along to make you feel accepted.

9. Not selling-out

Bon Jovi - Keep the Faith. Nuff said!

10. Investment

Pet Shop Boys - Opportunists (Lets Make Lots of Money). Fingers crossed !

11. Repeat all of the above

Propellerheads and Shirley Bassey - History repeating. Now return to track 1...
