Top 5 Running Songs

I NEED music to run. HH hadn't charged my iPod one time (I'm a kept woman and I LIKE IT, okay?) and I actually turned around and came back inside to wait until it charged.

Here are a few of my favorites, in no particular order:

1. Back in Black (ACDC)--I need a strong beat, especially when I start my run.

2. Barracuda (Heart)--another great song from the 70's. I can't not move when that guitar riff begins (and Ann Wilson's voice makes me feel strong).

3. Everybody Got Their Something (Nikka Costa)--great beat and I know it's dorky of me, but it's also *motivational*.

4. Wish You Were Here (Incubus)--this one's in simply because the dude has an amazing, sexy voice. I'm easy.

5. Almost anything by The Foo Fighters-- Some may find it strange but I find all their songs so uplifting. I obviously like loud music judging by the first two songs, and Dave Grohl can really yell, but their songs make me smile. And if you live in Bethlehem PA, and you see a zaftig women running and smiling like an imbecile, chances are it's me listening to my Foos.

What are yours? I only have about 20 on my Running Songs playlist, so I'd love to add some more. I'm gonna tag Finny.

Oh, I love a good beat, too. I tend to run to rock over anything else. Although I did have a successful stint with Italian pop.

My fave tunes on the playlist right now:

All Over You by The Spill Canvas
Help Me by Alkaline Trio
Alice by Moby
Dig by Incubus
Not an Angel by City Sleeps
Santogold by L.E.S. Artistes
MakeDamnSure by Taking Back Sunday
Middle of Nowhere by Hot Hot Heat

The Spill Canvas is sorta Foo Fighter-ish. I think that's why I liked them. FF is my fave band :)

I am officially OLD. I've heard of exactly 2 of those bands. My husband likes to think of himself as "current" so chances are, he's got some of those tunes somewhere.

Like the sound of MakeDamnSure!!
