A runner’s dream playlist! JANUARY

3 Comments

Finally!  The post you all I have been waiting for!  Luckily, I heard three of my faves in a row in the car on the way to work which pumped me up for my run later…Do you Remember (Jay Sean), Hard (Rihanna), and ironically, Transform Ya (Chris Brown).  So, here are a few of my FAVE playlists!  By the way, I will be doing a new one each month that will feature new songs added to the “runner’s dream playlist” (not necessarily new on the radio, but new to “the mix”).

HIPPIE MUSIC

Marley- Three Little Birds

The Who- Baba O-Riley

ROCK

Bruce (Springsteen duh)– Radio Nowhere, Darlington County, Badlands

Rush- Working Man, Subdivisions

RAP/R&B

Chris Brown-Transform Ya

Rihanna- Hard

Beyonce- Single Ladies

Alicia Keys/Jay-Z- Empire State of Mind

Gaga- Bad Romance

Wyclef- Dollar Bill

Jay Sean- Do you Remember

HARDER MUSIC

Disturbed- Down with the Sickness, Violence Fettish

The Casting Out- For Tonight

OTHER

Owl city- Fireflies

Krishna Das (typically yoga music, but this song gets me going!  I have NO idea what he is saying but Oscar and I BOTH like ths song!- Township Krishna

Kris Allen- Live Like We’re Dyin’ (you KNOW I love this song!)

Darude- Sandstorm (lol- this does actually get me going!)

MIND GAMES I PLAY- So what I have been doing lately is playing a bit of “mind games” with myself.  I am the kind of person who gets OBSESSED with a particular song and I like to rock out to it at LEAST 3-4 times in a row (hey, it helps with the lyric-learning so I can belt along!). SO, I have been picking a “song-per-mile” and rocking out to that song on repeat until the next mile (and song) comes!  It seriously works to take your mind off of things and helps you achieve mileage goals…I think.  Try it- let me know what you think!  At least you can memorize lyrics so that you can belt it out with the best of them!

Hahah!
