Now that I'm running again, I've dusted off the iPod nano and am on the lookout for new tunes to add to my running mix.
I'm excited because this blogger from Entertainment Weekly magazine had the same mission today: iPod inspection: What's on your cardio playlist? And coincidentally it was a topic on pajiba.com. (BTW, I'm not familiar with pajiba.com, but I think it's a fairly popular pop culture-related website.)
As for me, some songs that get me moving these days are "Girlfriend" by Avril Lavigne and either "Chelsea Dagger" or "Flathead" by The Fratellis. But I've been picking out some random, older tunes, too. For example, while at a fair at my old grade school back at home in OH (weird, right?), they played Meatloaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" and I thought, hey this is a fun song to get me moving to! OK, actually, my *first* thought was, hmmm, this would be a cute song to see a jive routine to on either Dancing with the Stars or So You Think You Can Dance. (Does anyone else ever have thoughts like this???)
And then on my way to work, they played Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell" on the radio and as soon as it started playing, I thought, ooh, I could run to this.
Anyway, how about you guys? Any good suggestions? I need at least five hours worth of tunes!!!
