I love these kinds of posts! Must look into the cadences thing, that would sure be different and kinda motivating!....
Stuff I like to listen to on my pod (Lord I'd die w/o my precious pod)
#1 "Die Another Day" by Madonna, from the Bond movie soundtrack. Good long song for running and pushing yourself, great beat.
#2 "Heavy" by Collective Soul, again just a hugely pounding beat, great for running to...
#3 "Mexico" by James Taylor, got married in Mexico and this makes me daydream about it. Nice and upbeat, 'happy' song.
Just so many great songs out there...I have a TON of 80's, Prince, Depeche Mode, Billy Idol (Rebel Yell is always in there when doing a 5K) and The Cure. Gwen Stefani and Fergie/Black Eyed Peas, and Rihanna are also played a lot. (i.e. 'Hollaback Girl' and 'Let's Get It Started', and 'Shut up and Drive'
Oh, and my niece recently introduced me to Owl City and they are growing on me. Especially 'Fireflies', silly lil happy song.
Man, Now I wanna listen to all of these...I'm gonna go run while it's still light out...it's mid 70's here today, unheard of for this time of year in my area.
