Friday Fives: Current Favorite Running Songs

It’s been a while since I’ve talked music, which is kinda crazy because it’s one of my all time favorite things to talk about haha. Anyways, I do most of my running with music because I think it makes running more enjoyable. I know there’s like, a whole debate about whether or not you should run with music and that some people take a really hard stance on one side or the other, but obviously I’m not one of those people. 😉 Can I run without music? Absolutely! I even opt to do it sometimes!! But I do most of my running with music because I think it’s more fun. So here are 5 of my current favorite songs to run to!

1. If There Was Ever A Time – Armstrongs 

Ok but for real, if Tim Armstrong (from Rancid) and Billie Joe Armstrong (from Green Day) could just do a whole album together, that’d be great! That’s probably not going to happen though. Sad face…haha but at least we have this song. I love it. And I think anything by Rancid or Green Day is great to run to, and this song is no exception. 🙂

2. The Sky Is A Neighborhood – Foo Fighters 

Holy cow! This song! This song is AMAZING!!!

Not gonna lie, I’ve never been a huge fan of the Foo Fighters. I mean, I’ve never disliked them or anything, but I’ve always just kinda been “meh” about them. I think this song has kinda changed my mind though. Every time I listen to it I tell myself I need to listen to the whole album all the way through and maybe one day I actually will! Anyway, I really like the place this song takes me whenever I run. It’s like a dreamy rhythm zone thing and it’s great!

3. Fabuless – Stone Sour

I’ve been listening to this song a lot ever since Luke and I saw Stone Sour in September. Actually, I’ve been listening to several Stone Sour songs since Luke and I saw them. But I think this one is my favorite! I especially like it for running because it’s nice and angry  haha. Angry songs are pretty fun to run to, in my opinion. Especially for intervals or hill work.

4. Police On My Back – The Clash

This is one of my all time favorite running songs!! I think the rhythm is perfect for running and it’s a lot of fun to sing along to. Plus I mean, it’s The Clash! What’s not to like?!?!

5. Somewhere Now – Green Day 

This song instantly became one of my favorites the first time I listened to it last October. And holy cow can we just talk about how crazy it is that Revolution Radio came out a year ago?! Anyway, I listen to this whole album a whole lot during the time I spend running and I tend to repeat Somewhere now once or twice because I just love it so much haha.

So there you have it! 5 of my current favorite running songs! What are some of you’re favorite songs to run to? I’m always looking for new to me music, so I’d absolutely love to hear what you like to listen to!!!

Anyways, that’s all for this Friday Fives. I hope you have a fantastic Friday!

Halloween Playlist 2017

It’s that time of year again!!! Time to break out my Halloween playlist!

So if you’ve been following my blog for a while, you probably know I take my running playlists very seriously. 😉 But to be honest with you, I haven’t really been making very many playlists for running lately. I’ve been in a very “I have to listen to the WHOLE album” kinda mood for a while now. And if I don’t feel like doing that, I just find a playlist on the RockMyRun app that seems intriguing and listen to that. But there are two times during the year that I absolutely have to make my own playlists; the beginning of spring and Halloween season! Haha and in my opinion, the Halloween season starts in September and I may or may not have been listening to this playlist since then. 😉 But hey, if the Christmas season can basically start in November I feel like Halloween can have two whole months too!

So my Halloween playlist is pretty much the same thing every year, I just keep adding new songs to it. But that totally works for me! I mean, I only listen to this playlist for a two-ish months every year so I don’t exactly get bored with it and I like super long playlists so I can just shuffle it and it will end up being different every time.

So yeah, here’s my Halloween playlist for 2017! 🙂
