Default i found an amazing running song for me!

i just wanted to share this. usually i just run to fast-paced music but while i was running today a song came on my ipod that really helped motivate me. the dong is called "dutch courage" by the spill canvas. the song is very obviously about a girl who drinks too much, but i connected to it because one of the lines in the chorus is "ten bucks says you don't have it in you." and then some of the other lyrics are discouraging. i found myself treating the song like every single person who has ever commented on my weight or in my mind, was even thinking that i couldn't do it. so running faster/longer while listening to the song was my way of sticking it to them and proving them all wrong. it was really motivating for me. i ran further than i have before and i HATE running!

anyone else have songs that they connect to the lyrics in a similar way? i need to make a running mix on my ipod called "proving them all wrong." haha.

i'm glad you like it! i really love this band. "polygraph, right now!" is my other fave song of theirs. you should check out chiodos if you like them, similar music style.

and yeah that line hit me because the song came on when i was just about to give up! crazy, huh?

Here is my running playlist:

Sealion - Feist
I need to wake up - From an Inconvenient Truth, Melissa Etheridge
Just Stand Up! - Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Beyonce Knowles, Ashanti, Keyshia Cole, Ciara, Miley Cyrus, Fergie, Rihanna, Leona Lewis, Natasha Bedingfield, Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge, LeAnn Rimes and Carrie Underwood
You can't stop the beat - Hairspray
You Gotta Be - Desiree
Keep on moving - Five
Search for the Hero - M People
We Belong -Pat Benatar
Can't Touch This - MC Hammer
Proud - Heather Small (the biggest loser song!)
Defying Gravity - From 'Wicked', Idina Menzel
Lose Yourself- Eminem
Stand Up - The Feelers


Completely different, mostly, from the regular music I listen to, and a lot cheesier! But this music really motivates me.

I love Francesca Battistelli! I have her Paper Heart album... it makes me smile.

As for me, I do not run, but I do walk with an mp3 player... here are some of my pumping up songs...

No Doubt- The Climb (not the Miley Cyrus version... this is on the Tragic Kingdom album)
No Doubt- Just A Girl
Spice Girls- Wannabe
Madonna- Express Yourself
Madonna- Vogue
toby mac- Boomin' (And the whole Portable Sounds album, to be honest... I need to get it in mp3 format though)
Switchfoot- Dare You to Move
Switchfoot- This is Your Life
Switchfoot- More Than Fine
Newsboys- I am Free
Newsboys- Shine
Fleetwood Mac- Don't Stop

And lately, Green Day- Know Your Enemy (I am totally digging that song)

Yes, I know there's a lot of Christian music in my collection... my ex-fiance worked at a Christian bookstore for awhile and I went there often.
