Top Five Friday: Running Songs

Since I have been absolutely lazy this week, I thought I'd remind myself of my favorite songs from my playlist that get my legs moving.  And share them with you.  Be warned...I have entirely random taste. 

5. Bartender - Hed PE
Why?  No real reason.  It's not the greatest beat to run to, but it always got me pumped to go I still run to it.

4. Kiss Kiss - Chris Brown
Ok, I know we're all supposed to hate Chris Brown.  But I LOVE this song.  Always have.  And it's a great beat to run to.  If it wasn't Chris Brown?  This song would probably be higher than 4.

3. Easy - Paula DeAnda
Love this because it has a great beat, makes me feel good about myself, and implies that what I'm doing is "Easy".  Ha!  Oh, and it features Bow Wow who is Cbus born and bred.

2. New Shoes - Paolo Nutini
Just quirky and delicious.  Also feels appropriate for running because of the "shoes" idea.

1.  Rompe - Daddy Yankee
Ok, I have an unabashed love of Daddy Yankee and Pitbull, and yet do not speak Spanish.  I also have a bad habit of singing along to my music and/or dancing while on the treadmill.  It's lovely to see.  Anyway, I'm sure I make up words and may be saying something like "Let's go eat a radio" or something as ridiculous.  Anyway.  Love it.

And for good measure?  My favorite album to run to in its entirety is "The Sickness" by Disturbed. 

Do you have favorite running songs?  I always am looking for new ones!


  1. Oh my goodness - I have that Chris Brown song on my iPod and I feel the EXACT same way about it! Why did that boy have to go and be an idiot? Grr.

  2. Love the Friday Five!

    I really like Kanye's the Workout Plan.

  3. thanks for the tunes! i'm always looking for new stuff too; anything that has strong rhythmic beats i can match my strides to. i highly recommend Carry Out (Timbaland and J.T.) and Imma Bee (B.E.P.) lookin forward to reading more of your blog :)
