Playlist Thursday: Your first playlist

It’s that time of the week again. Time to link up with Pavement Runner. This is an awesome link up I always try to partake in because I get to see songs that I might not have otherwise heard of and I always end up adding at least one song to my running playlist. Make sure you head over to Pavement Runner to check out everyone else who contributed this week.

Today’s theme is: Your FIRST playlist. I thought this was a brilliant idea. Although I didn’t have an iPod until I was a junior in college, when talking to Abby on twitter, we reminisced about listening to the radio and trying to catch our favorite songs so we could tape them. Ah, the good ol’ days. So for my first playlist I am going to use the songs that pumped us up on the soccer bus! I love this, because this was the era when music videos were awesome, they had concepts and treatments, and they were fun to watch.

Artist: Blackstreet

Title: No Diggity

Side Note: This was a song we listened to over and over and over. I won’t pretend that I don’t still listen to it, I can pick it out by the first 3 or 4 notes. Please watch the video if not for the outfits of the 90’s. Overalls at middle school dances? Anyone?

She’s got class and style
Street knowledge by the pound,
Baby never act wild
Very low key on the profile
Catching villains is a no,
Let me tell you how it goes
Curves the words, spins the verbs
Lovers it curves so freak what you heard

Artist: Destiny’s Child

Title: Jumpin’ Jumpin’

Side Note: My best friends used to always play this song for me. Sophomore year in high school was a really low year for me and I was in a funk for months, she would always blare this on the drive home. If you are reading this, Jill and Caty – you were my lifesavers! This was before Beyonce got all diva!

Ladies leave your man at home
The club is full of ballers
And they pockets full grown
And all you fellas leave your girl
With her friends
‘Cause it’s 11:30, and the club is
Jumpin’, jumpin’

Artist: Red Hot Chili Peppers

Title: Otherside

Side Note: I may be a boyband lover for life, I also really love rock music. I mean I love all music but I have love RHCP forever. This song was really popular during my soccer trips.

Turn me on, take me for a hard ride
Burn me out, leave me on the otherside
I yell and tell it that
It’s not my friend
I tear it down I tear it down
And then it’s born again

Playlist Thursday: High School Jams

I am linking up with Pavement Runner today. I LOVE his music posts, mostly because I am always looking for new running songs to add to my playlist, but because of the format of his posts. I know I have been MIA…again on Playlist Thursday for awhile but I am going to try to make sure I keep linking up, it is one of my favorite link ups!

Today’s theme is: High School Jams. This means, the current song is current from your high school. So for me that mans between 1998 and 2002. Yikes. High School was okay for me, lots of ups, lots of downs, and lots of learning. Mostly outside the classroom.


Artist: Kenny Loggins
Title: Footloose
Side Note: I refuse to see the remake of this movie, it is much too soon.
Quotable: We got to turn me around. And put your feet on the ground. Now take a hold of the phone. Whoa, I’m turning it loose


Artist: Backstreet Boys
Title: Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)
Side Note: I was your classic boy band lover, boy bands you probably haven’t even heard of (or remember). Examples: 5ive, Mytown, Youngstown, No Authority, Westlife, etc… But BSB was my first…that sounds weird, and they were the first concert, I ever saw. Also, this video…classic, and Nick’s hair, woah buddy.
Quotable: Now throw your hands up in the air. And wave ‘em around like you just don’t care. If you wanna party let me hear you yell. ‘Cause we’ve got it goin’ on again


Artist: Nelly
Title: Hot in Herre
Side Note: Always loved the rap, still love the rap, still know all the lyrics.
Quotable: Lookin for the right time to flash them keys. Then um I’m leavin, please believin. Me and the rest of my heathens
