I realized on my runs this week that I was hitting “skip” to enough songs that it is time to make like Lance and inject some fresh blood into my playlist (too soon? I only kid to hide my dismay. I held onto hope for so long, but alas, I have to shake the sand out of my hair). Where to go to find new songs? Fellow runners, of course! So I asked some what their flavor of the week and perennial favorites were are here is what they had to say:
Flavor of the Week – Dog Days of Summer by Florence and the Machine (I love this one too, thanks to sissy!)
Perennial Favorite – Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen
Perennial Favorite – California Love by 2Pac
Flavor of the Week – Against the Wind by Bob Seger (which she reports is “appropriate right now” – must be windy out west!)
Scott – AKA a man of few words
Flavor of the Week – anything Queen
Perennial Favorite – anything Queen
Flavor of the Week – My Body by Young the Giant (this also got a nod from Melissa)
Perennial Favorite – One by U2 and Mary J Blige
Flavor of the Week – We Are Young by Fun. (this is a flavor I am enjoying as well!)
Flavor of the Week – A Dustland Fairytale by The Killers (Lizzy reports that this starts slow but gets better for working out, so hang in there with it!)
Flavor of the Week – That’s What’s Up by Edward Sharpe and Magnetic Zeroes (I recommend clapping along, the people driving by will appreciate your enthusiasm/ something weird to look at while commuting. Also, if anyone is engaged, please play this at your wedding. I would have but it didn’t exist during ours. But you can be sure I’ll be blasting it in the Kashi/GD household this Monday!)
Perennial Favorite – Pon de Replay by Rhianna (I’m a sucker for “run” lyrics)
I love all these suggestions and I bet you will too! Go forth and download!
