Running Post! Playlist Ackshun

So I've had some requests* for playlist suggestions (*okay, one request), so here they are. A lot of them are lifted directly from the Run Like a Mother playlists, for which I have been very grateful in my quick attempts to throw something new on the 'Pod* (*I like how I saved so much time by adding the apostrophe instead of the i and THEN also adding this note about it) and not wanting to eat too much into the time available for the run.

My current list (which I usually listen to on shuffle)

I Stand Corrected - Vampire Weekend
Electric Feel - MGMT
Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z/ Alicia Keys
Stronger - Britney Spears
Only Girl in the World - Rhianna
Defying Gravity (dance remix) - Idina Menzel
My Life Would Suck Without You - Glee Cast
Hate on Me - Glee Cast
Meet Me on the Equinox - Death Cab for Cutie (I especially like this for "everything ends" -- which is a nice reminder when I'm in the crappy feeling part of a run)
Hands in the Air - Girl Talk
Telephone - Lady Gaga
Tik Tok - Ke$ha
Here Comes Your Man - Pixies
Flashdance (What a Feeling) - Irene Cara (Really never fails to make me crack up.)
Last Name - Glee Cast
Give Me a Beat - Girl Talk
Mr. Brightside - The Killers
LDN - Lily Allen
Bad Romance - Glee Cast
Defying Gravity - Kristin Chenowith/ Idina Menzel (This has all the stage talk etc in it but works for me because I love it so much.)

So! There's what I'm currently running to, with some changes to come when I get tired of it in a week or so. Please do add suggestions in the comments, because I'm always looking for more stuff.


  1. Yolanda Be Cool Vs. Dcup - We speak no Americano
    Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros - Home
    The Black Keys - 10 A.M. automatic
    Vampire Weedend - Ladies of Cambridge
    Passion Pit - Chunk of Change
    Mumford and Sons- The Cave
    The Breeders - Saints

    Just some of the tunes I dig.

  2. Sweet, thanks Darcy! This is especially appreciated since you're cooler than me.

  3. Cooler than you?! Nahhh, but that compliment just earned you a mix tape!
