Thursday 13: Work it, own it

How long has it been since I've done a music post for Thursday 13? Too long. And in keeping with my (so far) injury-free running groove, this list includes 13 of my favorite songs on my iPod right now, specifically in my running playlist:

1. All Will Be Well, The Gabe Dixon Band. This is a wonderful warm-up song with all the right sentiments to get me in the right frame of mind.

2. Pokerface, Lady Gaga. Not a big Gaga fan, but if I don't have to look at her, I'm even happier.

3. Halo/Walking on Sunshine, Glee cast. This one gets me going!

4. Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It), Beyonce. Of course.

5. I Gotta Feeling, Black Eyed Peas. Such a feel-good song. I can practically see the Oprah flash mob every time I hear this song!

6. A Million Ways, OK Go. And oldie but a goodie. Again with the great video... look what a phenomenon it became that everyone copied their dance style:

7. Hey, Soul Sister, Train.

8. Jai Ho, Slumdog Millionaire Soundtrack. This is such a pick-me-up for mid-way through the run. I almost want to break into bollywood dancing, but somehow I contain myself.

9. I Will Survive, Cake. I love this cover of the old classic.

10. So What, Pink. Great anthem, very kick butt for picking up the pace!

11. Shine, Take That. This band is way old, but I love this song.

12. Say Hey (I Love You), Michael Franti. Boppy and fun, reminds me of Seth.

13. Now That We Found Love, Heavy D & The Boyz. This is from the wedding dance sequence at the end of Hitch, and always brings a happy scene to mind!

As you can see, some of these are a wee bit old and so I am in need of some new ideas... please share with me any songs you find great for getting the energy up! Many thanks.

For more Thursday 13s, go here.

  10. I'm missing your cd's - I work with DJs and when I play your mixes at the warehouse - they all want to know where I got THAT music from! Love it. I tell them it's from my best bud and we did 80's music. Reminding them how old I am always sends them squealing!

  11. I got a feeling! Good way to start the day.
