I Want Your Songs...NOW!

I said I would do this several months ago, but never did. This time I will. I want your song recommendations. Leave a comment to this post with the one song, yes ONE song that gets you pumped while you're running. I promise that I will put your song in my mp3 player. I'd love to have a song from all 27 followers to listen to. You guys have supported me through this blog, now's your chance to musically support me as I run 26.2 miles through the five boroughs of New York City this Sunday. What are you waiting for?! Go post your song NOW!!!!!


Believe said...

I fully support this idea, and will subsequently be stealing this playlist once it is finsihed :D

#1-Don't stop me now by Queen
#2- I Gotta Feelin by The Black Eyed Peas

Sorry, I can't just post one-they are getting me through it right now!! Happy Running!

Greenlight - John Legend & Andre

Meg Runs said...

This is so bad but just Sunday, during my long run, I heard "Gold Digger," by Kanye West and it put a smile on my face. I know, it is a wicked song but it is entertaining. Sorry if it's too nasty but it is funny.

Try "Best Years of Our Lives" by the Baha Men. It has a super fun, make-you-want-to-move beat!

sam said...

Led Zeppelin- Nobody's fault but mine.

From beginning to end it keeps me pumped!!

HEATHER @ runfastermommy! said...

well now you have 28 followers, so here is my contribution :)

"Stronger" by Kanye West (i'm not a fan of his particularly, but the lyrics of this song get me going every time!)

And when I'm in a beautiful, fall, Sunday afternoon sort of run mood, I like anything from Chicago...perhaps a little "saturday in the park"? A little out of the ordinary, I know!

Lisa said...

Great idea Rick! Here's my contribution:

Viva la Vida by Coldplay.

Everytime I hear this song I want to run.

I've seen Stronger by Kanye recommended on various blogs... I need to check it out even though I can't stand him.

Anais said...

I agree with Believe - I want to steal the playlist when you`re done!!

Since Meg Runs picked Gold Digger (although I was going to give the Glee version), I will have to nominate:

"Push It" sang by the Glee Club (or just Glee I'm not sure!). You can find it on iTunes among other places :)

Mel-2nd Chances said...

love Beautiful Day from U2, and Smile by Vitamin C works everytime :) I'm so excited for you!

Meg Runs said...

I'm back. Out of guilt. Thanks to Sam though for the shout out on my song choice. Anyway, I'm not a Kanye West fan, that being said, I do like his other song, Stronger. I also like the inspiration of James Taylor, corney but inspirational. He helped me on Sunday too. Just had to redeem myself a tiny, tiny bit.

Fired UP - pat benatar

can't wait to see what you get (p.s. i have loads of others if you want any hence the 14 miles extra i had on my own playlist)

Irish Cream said...

OMG, I just CAN'T limit it to one . . . here are a few ;)

#1: Empire State of Mind by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys (awesome NYC song).

#2: List of Demands by Saul Williams

#3: Pump It by the Black Eyed Peas

#4: Chicago by Sufjan Stevens

Okay, sorry. I totally cheated. But these songs all really get me pumped up!

Lisa said...

"Believe" listed two of my favorites. Another one I really enjoy right is "Gives You Hell" by the All American Rejects.

Oh, and "Poker Face" by Lady Gaga is pretty good too.

Sorry... I didn't quite follow the rules. ;-)

i would recommend giving all these a screening, 'cause i know different people are pumped up by different genres. while irish and i might run a 5min mile to jay z's "empire state of mind", you might hate it and want to lay down :)

i have to send the jay z song vote by irish, but i understand if rap/hip hop isn't your thing.

one that really gets me going is "let it rock" by kevin rudolf, but it's also hip hoppy.

*second the vote not 'send' the vote... that makes no sense
