Musical inspiration

 
One of my sweat pink ambassador sisters- Kim @ My Healthy Nest proposed the idea of posting and doing a link up of our favorite running play list songs. I of course jumped!!
 
 
Even though I have been running music-less quite a bit, I still have lots of fun with playlists and going back to old songs in addition to the new ones I hear on the radio and get my pumped up. Now I honestly will warn you now that I tend to run to explicit lyrics and a lot of awesome mixes from RockMyRun. I am so not an explicit type of speaker, but when I need pumped up or motivated to run... for some reason this music just does it for me.  So here goes- love it or leave it :)
 
 
 
Teach me how to Dougie
 
Suit and Tie- JT
(embarassing but this darn song gets seriously BURNED into my brain)
 
It's time- Imagine Dragons
 
Sweet Nothing- Calvin Harris/Florence Welch
 
Thrift shop- Macklemore
(omg again, always in my head.. don't hate it!)
 
Ho Hey- Lumineers
(hoheeeeeey!!)
 
Scream and Shout- Will.I.Am/ Brittany
 
With your love-Cher Lloyd
 
Can't hold us-Macklemore
 
Lean like a cholo
( this was a song from Zumba that I am now obsessed with)
 
Faded- Tyga/Lil Wayne (explicit)
 
a great (slightly explicit) mix: http://illegal-art.net/allday/ (totally free download)
 
So I kept this PRETTY clean to share with you all. These are all pretty new songs. True Confession: I just want on a local radio station's site and found songs that I groove to in the car but didn't neccessarily know the name of.
 
I hope this helps some of you SPRUCE up your playlists for spring and getting back in shape (or continuing your healthy lifestyles!!) Feel free to give me some feedback :)

  1. Great list! And you are right, we have similar musical tastes. AND I started running "just to see if I could" in 2011 too!

  3. This is a great list! I am stealing a couple. I am the SAME way! I am very non-explicit but I have some that I intentionally left of my list on the linkup because they are pretty explicit (like Crazy B* by Buckcherry. Completely inappropriate but it gets me moving! I started my "Just to see if I could" running journey in 2012 but stopped after a couple months. I just started back in January! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm adding you =). Love finding other bloggers!

  4. Dougie + Thrift Shop - yesss! Great picks! I've never heard of Cher Lloyd, but that song is pretty catchy. Thanks for sharing!
