And … a music post

If you had the over on April 15th before Matthew did a music post – you win!

But wait – this isn’t one of those “ZOMG you GUYS I just HAVE to tell you about this TOTALLY RAD music I’m listening too when I run” (or whatever the kids are saying these days – I quit trying to keep up a few years ago) post.  Instead, this is a “here’s a sample – looking for some suggestions” post.

So, this is the playlist I’ve put together for when I run a 5K race – the timing comes out to just under 30 minutes, so I can judge where I’m at when Psycho Killer or Lose Yourself comes on.  But this is a pretty good cross section of what I’m listening to:

fa-fa-fa-fa, fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

And, seriously, Psycho Killer has one of the best bass lines I’ve ever heard.

So – I’m looking for new stuff, and when you’re looking for new running music … well, isn’t the obvious answer to ask the internet?  So, internet, I’m asking you – what should go into my playlist?

I know you won’t let me down.

  1. I’ve never thought of making such an exact playlist. What a great idea! I just put it on shuffle… I’m an Aerosmith fan and quite a few songs on Get a Grip get my blood racing. “Eat the Rich” is particularly invigorating. “Get a Grip” is nice starting out the run because it has a slow, more plodding beat at first. “Fever” is also nice – very fast paced.

    If you really want to try something different… 2Cellos does covers of classic rock songs. They do “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns N Roses and “Smooth Criminal” by Michael Jackson. It’s just cellos, but they make it sound like there’s a lot more than that going on. You should check out those two songs on YouTube. Trust me, it’s better and more rocking than it sounds. 🙂
