I run around a lot. And i like to listen to music while i do. Here are my staples, found in every playlist.
Dj Khaled "All I Do Is Win"
Great for starting out. Especially when you don't really feel like working out. Usually 1st or 2nd on my playlist. "All i do is Win! Win! Win! No matter what!"
Daft Punk "Harder Better Faster Stronger"
Do i have to explain? Have you really not heard this song, yet? Why aren't you running right now just thinking about this song? Why am asking so many rhetorical questions?
Usually right in the middle of my playlist.
"Work it harder. Make it better. Do it faster. Makes us stronger."
Fun. "Carry On"
Slow start, but always inspires me to, well, carry on. Good for those last couple miles, just after your halfway point when you start wondering what on earth possessed you to even put on your nikes in the first place.
"My head is on fire, but my legs are fine. After all, they are mine."
The Script "Hall of Fame"
A new addition to my playlist, but a new essential. Always the last or 2nd to last. My power song. My way to bring it on home. The last mile is the hardest, and this helps me power through to the end.
"You could be the greatest! You could be the best! You could be the king kong banging on your chest!"
Everything else rotates depending on my mood and current favorites, and is mostly beat-keeping fluff.
"I am stronger than you think" by fireflight, "rich and poor" by paper tongues, "shut up and let me go" by the ting tings, "die another day" by madonna, "dota" by basshunter, and "the foggy dew" by the young dubliners are also recurring songs.
Basically anything that makes me feel like a bad ass.
