Playlist Thursday – let’s go!

This week’s Playlist Thursday theme is songs that make you wanna get a speeding ticket. You know, those songs that make you want to pick up the pace while running, or press the gas pedal just a little too hard while driving down the highway.

Following these guidelines:

Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old. (I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.)
Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year.
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Feel free to list any song: old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever.

Here are the three songs I think you should add to your running playlist that will make you want to run like the wind.

Something Old

Artist: Outkast


Side note: This song has been on my running playlist for as long as I`ve had a running playlist. It always makes my feet move faster even if I have no idea what he is rhyming half of the time.

Quotable: “…thunder pounds when I stomp the ground.”

Something New

Artist: P!nk

Title: Blow me (one last kiss)

Side note: P!ink is one bad ass lady. Enough said.

Quotable: “I will do what I please, anything that I want. I won’t breathe, I won’t breathe, I won’t worry at all.”

Something to Consider

Artist: Rednex

Title: Cotton Eyed Joe

Side note: While searching for this video I discovered that they made a new version in 2002. I like the original better, and it reminds me of high school dances, so that’s what I’m giving you. Oh, OK, I’ll give you both.

Quotable: “Where did you come from? Where did you go? Where did you come from Cotton Eyed Joe?

Thanks again for the fun Pavement Runner!
