Power Songs: Volume 2
Some of you may recall a list of power songs that I created last year around race season. Well I’ve decided to do a refresh. With a new race season approaching, I figured my playlist needed an updated. Naturally, I thought I would share the top 5 songs that are getting my moving these days.
- Suave (Kiss Me) – Nayer Featuring Pitbull & Mohombi
We all know I love Pitbull more than is socially acceptable. The beat of this song is just perfect for my candence and it’s so fun. How could you not want to pick up the pace when this starts playing?!?
2. Drunken Lullabie – Flogging Molly
This song is great on it’s own. I never thought of adding it to the list until spotify’s running feature recommended it. Now I’m hooked!
3. Piensas (Dile la Verdad) – Pitbull
What?? Another Pitbull song! Listen to it first and make it to the chorus. I swear everytime I hear this song I have to stop myself from dancing. Sometimes, I just can’t help it. (To that car that pointed me out last weekend… Hello!)
4. Holding Out for a Hero – Bonnie Tyler (From Footloose)
I don’t know what it is about that song. Maybe it’s the rad 80s vibe… but I hear this and immediately perk up. Weird. I know. Also, this video. Wow.
5. Knights of Cydonia – Muse
The first 51 seconds of this song lulls a bit. But after that, it’s a fantastic song that just comes at you. (Did that make any sense?) I love Muse and almost always have a few of their songs on my playlist.
6. Love Runs Out – OneRepublic
I couldn’t pick just 5, so here’s a bonus! This song has the best beat and it’s just super fun.
I am in the process of making a Marine Corps Marathon specific power playlist with uplifting songs. It will need to be retooled because I tried it out 2 weeks ago and got the feels. Too much.
Also tried listing to audiobooks. I don’t know how people do it. I ended up heavily invested in the book and not concentrating on running.
Any power songs suggestions? Any inspirational song suggestions? What are you currently listing to? Are you judging my taste in music…? (it’s cool I would too)
