Guess what today is?! At least for the next hour or so…
Pavement runner’s Playlist Thursday! The theme for this Thursday is songs that have never been deleted from your playlist! I love this week’s theme because it definitely made me think about my all time favorite songs to workout to – the ones that always pump me up. It was actually pretty easy.
Thanks for the inspiration, PR!
So here are the guidelines: (taken from pavement runner‘s page)
Something Old: These will be songs that are at least 5 years old. I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.
Something Current: These will be songs that have been released within the past year. I know, but you have to give me some leeway here.
Something to Consider: These will be songs that are not typically heard on the radio and may be by artists you’ve never heard of or considered running to. This is the wild card category, can be old or current.
Artist: The Used
Title: Take It Away
Side Note: I used to be really into punk/screaming music while I was in college. There is definitely still a time and a place for screaming music. I love this CD so much and this song is so fast paced that it is perfect for running. I used to only workout to this CD on repeat my sophomore year of college & this song has made an appearance on every playlist since.
Quotable: ”Life’s greatest questions have always been: Who am I? Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going?…”
Side Note: I just said recently & I stand by it – this song will always pump me up, no matter what I am doing. I just love it. Not the Flo Rida version. Not the remix. The original Avicii version. Absolutely amazing for speed work…& walking around NYC…& random solo dance parties in your apartment…just me?
Quotable: ”Ohh Ohh sometimes, I get a good feeling, yea.”
Something to Consider
Artist: Bloc Party
Side Note: Bloc Party is another one of my favorite bands. Most of their songs are catchy & upbeat which just makes me happy. I also loved that this song was on Guitar Hero (BTW I was sick at Guitar Hero. Just an FYI).
Quotable: ”Running on, Bravado.”
What song do you have on your playlist that will never, ever leave?
