Do you listen to music while you run? I DO!! Sometimes I think the chance to listen to music is the only reason I run. It’s not….but I really do like to listen to music. Lots of different types too.
My son and husband recently took a trip out West. I loaned my tunes to my son because his dad prefers to drive in silence. I was SO happy when my
tunes family got home!
I listen to music on an ipod shuffle.
I use these ear buds, because the ones that came with the shuffle kept falling out of my ears. Super annoying in the middle of a run!
Here are some of my favorite songs:
Motivational Song: I am Superman – R.E.M. Although I think it’s a love song, one of the lines says “I am Superman. I can do anything.” That’s how running makes me feel. Here is the YouTube of it:
Current Favorite: Renegades – X Ambassadors. I listen to this A LOT. Like maybe 6x a day! Here is the YouTube of it:
Cheesy/Guilty Pleasure Song: Sugar Sugar – The Archies. Sorry! Here is the YouTube of it:
Classic Favorite: Midnight Rambler – The Rolling Stones (of course…see my previous post about their concert). I listen to a live version that is 9:38 long. I know I better make it around my park loop once in the time it takes to listen to this song! Here is a YouTube live version (I don’t think it’s very good version though)
Can’t Listen to these types of Music: Country (don’t know why), and Grunge. I tell my husband and son that if they ever wondered what menstrual cramps felt like, they should listen to grunge. It sounds like what cramps feel like!
There is an app that I use all the time to figure out what new songs to download. Whenever i hear a song I like, I can hit the shazam app on my phone to save the song until I can download:
What songs do you listen to? Motivational? Current Fave? Cheesy? Classic?
