As you know, I like to run. I like to run to music. Some running purists say that running with music is cheating but they can kiss my fat ass. I need to burn some calories and if “love shack” keeps me going just that much longer than I am going to put on them tunes and move my butt.
I’m not the only pro-running with music person out there and as a result, play lists are one of the items that runners trade with each other like baseball cards.
Some people go through the trouble of estimating what song will be playing at what mile and have a certain order. I tend to just pick songs and put them on shuffle.
Here are some songs I have used on running playlists.
1. “Love Shack” B-52s
Come on, it’s trippy dippy happy. I’m in a Chrysler as big as a whale and we’re about to set sail! A lot of fun.
2. “Firestarter” Prodigy
3. “Sinnerman” Nina Simone
4. “Right Here, Right Now” by Fatboy Slim
5. “Power” Kanye West
6. “The Distance” Cake
7. “O Saya” from Slumdog Millionaire
8. “Hot and Cold” Katy Perry
9. “Hey Ya” Outkast
