Tuesday Tunes

I've been running to the same music for months now I need something to get me motivated. I tried searching my husbands music but you would think I married an old man. He and my parents share the same taste in music. His explanation is that he likes quality music and there wasn't much after the 70's. I can't argue with him because I have no musical inclinations. I just care about how music makes me feel. I mean even Lady Gaga has a place in my musical collection because she makes me feel like dancing. My current favorite channel on Pandora is "80's Throwback, 90's Comeback" which is music that makes me want to sing along. So anyway, I am now looking for music that makes me feel like running. Here is my current playlist:

Need You Now - Lady Antebellum
Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes
Movie Loves a Screen - April Smith and the Great Picture Show
Raise Your Glass - P!nk
L.O.V.E. - Ashlee Simpson
Uprising - Muse
Pressure - Paramore
My Own Worst Enemy - Stereophonics
Next Best Thing - Nikki & Rich
Souljacker, Pt. 1 - Eels
Can We Go Wrong - Hesta Prynn
Devil's Dance Floor - Flogging Molly
Under My Skin - Gin Wigmore
I'm Shipping Up to Boston - Dropkick Murphys
Anyway - Dynamite Hack
Someday - Pete Schmidt
Hell's Ditch - The Pogues
Ride to California - Paper Tongues
I'm Amazed - My Morning Jacket
Paper Planes - M.I.A.
Recall - Hesta Prynn
Spirit In the Sky - Doctor & The Medics
I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas
Fed Up - AM Taxi
A Thousand Trees - Stereophonics
Ooh La La - Goldfrapp
Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol
Misery Business - Paramore
Are You Gonna Be My Girl - Jet
You Winding Me Up - Hesta Prynn
Turpentine - Brandi Carlile
Dreamer - Ozzy Osbourne

It is really long and on most runs I only get through the first few songs. What songs get you motivated to move?


  1. I love it! You have a great list of music. I'm embarrassed to admit that Kid Rock gets me moving. I need something loud and heavy and I can't hear myself breathing!! :)

  2. I almost always run to The Killers. "Hot Fuss" is a great album to run to.

  3. I have alot of Black Eyed Peas. Beyonce and tons of 80's music.



About Me

My photo
Right now I'm covered in flour, haven't showered since yesterday, and I'm sleep deprived. Once upon a time I was using my expensive college education to work as a accountant/consultant. Now I use my high school Home Ec. skills to raise 2 kids and keep my house from falling down.
