Spring 2017 Running Playlist 

I don’t know what it is about spring, but every year once the weather starts warming up there are two things that I feel very very driven to do; plant things and make new playlists.  The planting things totally makes sense, but I’m not sure why I feel the need to make new playlists. Over the winter I listened to the albums London Calling, Revolution Radio, Let’s Go, and American Idiot more times than I’m probably willing to admit haha. They’re all great albums and they are some of my favorite things to listen to while on the run, but once spring starts whole albums don’t seem to do it for me anymore. I just need a little more variety I suppose, but I still can’t figure out why this happens to me every every single spring. I don’t know, it’s weird.

For some reason, in the spring my playlists always end up full of punk/pop punk/emo/other alternative stuff similar to that. I don’t know, I guess spring is just the perfect time for all of that stuff. 🙂

Spring 2017 Running Playlist:

At this point you’ve probably noticed that I take my running playlists very seriously and that most of the songs I listen to are older. I don’t exactly like a lot of the newer music. I think country music has become a huge joke (seriously bro country makes me want to shove a knife in both of my ears), rock and alternative have kinda been pushed to the wayside which really sucks, and I’ve never really been into pop music. Yeah, I’m that obnoxious person and I’m not at all sorry. 😉 Anyway, I also like my playlists to be really long, so I can put them on shuffle and they’re a little different every time. That way I don’t get tired of them super fast.

    Have you ever tried listening to some of the newer alt-country stuff? It’s much better than mainstream pop country, which I totally agree has become a joke. If you’re looking for mid-to-uptempo music which tends to be good for running, try something like Old 97’s or Girls, Guns and Glory.

    Otherwise, I agree with most of your musical tastes. Also, speaking of Weezer, I noticed a couple of months ago that their first hit, “Undone (The Sweater Song)” is EXACTLY a 6mph pace on a treadmill.

      I have not, but I guess I’m gonna have to now! 😉 I’ll definitely look them up! I’m always looking for new (well new to me), exciting songs to run to! Hahaha that’s awesome!! I guess I’m going to have to add that song to my playlist, maybe it’ll help me run a little faster. 🙂
