I’ve been working on a new running playlist for a few days now. I tend to do that whenever the weather starts to warm up. I don’t know what it is about spring that makes me want to listen to new music/playlists, but it really does haha! So for today’s Friday Fives, I thought I’d share some of the songs I’m really into right now.
1. Louie Louie by Iggy Pop
I don’t know what it is about Iggy Pop/The Stooges but sometimes I really love them, sometimes I really hate them. At the moment I’m really feeling them though. This song, I Wanna Be Your Dog, Real Wild Child, and of course the two songs he did with Green Day (Private Hell and Supermarket), have been getting me super jazzed up lately. 🙂
2. Want You Bad by The Offspring
90’s/early 2000’s punk just makes me so happy. It’s also a great genre for running, in case you were wondering. 😉 The Offspring quickly became one of my favorites, and Want You Bad is probably one of my all time favorite songs.
3. Scotty Doesn’t Know by Lustra
This is literally the only song by Lustra that I’ve ever heard, but I absolutely love it! It’s just hilariously terrible. But not in a “it’s a bad song” terrible, but a “you probably shouldn’t be having sex with your friend’s girlfriend” terrible. Oh man, it’s great.
4. Video Killed The Radio Star by The Presidents Of The United States Of America
I’m very confused as to why this video has The Offspring’s logo as the background, but whatever. I’m not a fan of the original version of this song, but I really like this cover of it. 🙂
5. Dammit by Blink-182
As a general rule, I don’t go around announcing that I listen to Blink-182, because…I don’t know man, it’s freaking Blink-182. But I do thing think this song is a lot of fun to run to. Along with a few of their other songs.
Hey! I made it through a whole list of music without including a Green Day song (although I did mention them once). That’s pretty impressive for me haha! Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this little preview of my spring playlist. At some point I plan on sharing the whole thing. 🙂
