On the Trail of the Perfect Post-Pumpkin Pie Playlist

As I hit the trail today, in the effort to run off the obnoxious amount of calories that went down the hatch on Thanksgiving, I realized I’m a titch bored with my current playlist. These tunes still do the trick, but there’s nothing like new music to fuel the fire, eh?

So, I thought it might be fun to have a playlist swap. I wanted to get all fancy, so that you could click on the song and listen to it, but I didn’t have the patience or the mental bandwidth to figure that out. . .

In no particular order, here are some of my faves for running. Or vacuuming the house with extra fervor:

  • Little Lion Man – Mumford and Sons
  • American Girl – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
  • Seven Bridges Road – Eagles
  • Bohemian Like You – Dandy Warhols
  • Goody Two Shoes – Adam Ant
  • No Silver – Chris Bathgate
  • Safety Dance – Men without Hats
  • Zombie – The Cranberries
  • Desire – U2
  • Crazy – Seal

What songs put you in the mood to shake your tail feathers?

  1. Hi Betty,

    A few of my fave songs for running:

    1. Footloose – Kenny Loggins (yes, this dates me)
    2. Runaway – Bruno Mars
    3. I Gotta Feelin’ – Black Eyed Peas
    4. Fame – Irene Cara (I just loved the 80’s)
    5. Club Can’t Handle Me – Flo Rida
    6. Hold On Loosely – 38 Special
    7. Raise Your Glass – Pink
    8. Workin’ Day and Night – Michael Jackson

    I could go on and on…:)

    • Thanks, Bryn! I don’t have any of those songs on my iPod, except for Footloose, so this will definitely beef up my playlist. MJ has lots of good running tunes — Black or White is one of my faves, too. Hope you had a great Turkey Day!

  2. Off the top of my pointed head:
    Tubthumping – Chumbawumba
    Born To Run (almost entire album) – Springsteen
    Superman – Lazlo Bane
    Dracula From Houston – Butthole Surfers
    Sweet Home Alabama – Lynrd Skynrd

    Out of the 7,550 songs on my iPod, i’d say at least a third get me totally pumped.
