My Musical Secrets

Mar at Mar on the Run! posted in a blog group on Facebook a little while ago about creating a playlist link-up, and I definitely got interested!  First, I'd never been involved in a link-up before (I think I'm too small of a blog to) and second I absolutely adore music!

I will admit that during my runs, I generally tune out my music and couldn't tell you what songs played when.  With that said, however, if I try to run without music I absolutely hate every step of it! I need the beat in the background to keep me going, even if I have no idea what's playing.  There are a few exceptions to the drowning it out rule though, songs that make me want to keep running even through my walk intervals!

1.  A-Punk by Vampire Weekend - this is always my start-up song!

2.  American Idiot by Green Day

3.  Cannibal by Ke$ha

4.  Dog Days Are Over by Florence + the Machine

5.  Mickey by Toni Basil

6.  Our Song by Taylor Swift

7.  Pursuit of Happiness by Kid Cudi

8.  Teenage Dream (Kascade Remix) by Katy Perry

9.  U Can't Touch This by MC Hammer

10.  It's Tricky by Run-DMC

These aren't in any order, and I'm not really sure why they work but they do!  I'm looking to incorporate some of the more modern pop things as well (Miley Cyrus, things like that) but haven't gotten around to downloading yet.

What suggestions do you have?



  1. Dog Days and Pursuit of Happiness .... how could I forget how much I LOVE those!!

    1. They're fantastic! I forgot my love of 90's music and then was listening to Green Day, Eminem, Blink 182, etc. yesterday and completely jamming out to them on my way to/from yoga last night!

  2. I need to update my list for sure. Thanks for the suggestions!

    1. No problem :) Mine needs updating too haha!

  3. Nice mix of songs! Love that you even have 80s pop on there... Can't Touch This is a fun song! lol

    1. Thanks! I figure it's quite a stretch for this 90's kid but I love it!

  4. I love It's Tricky and Dog Days are Over!!! :)
