Playlist Thursday: Songs by Dudes

First things first! The winner of my giveaway is: Liz K! I have sent your info and you should be contacted soon, congratulations!

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: Songs by Dudes

Artist: Jason Aldean

Title: She’s Country

Side Note: I may not be from the South, but this girl is country born and raised. You never forget your roots.

She’s a hot little number in her pick-up truck
Daddy’s sweet money done jacked it up
She’s a party-all-nighter from South Carolina, a bad mamajama from down in Alabama
She’s a raging cajun, a lunatic from Brunswick, juicy Georgia peach
With a thick southern drawl, sexy swingin’ walk, brother she’s all

Country, from her cowboy boots to her down home roots
She’s country, from the songs she plays to the prayers she prays,
That’s the way she was born and raised, she ain’t afraid to stay, country
Brother she’s country

Artist: Maroon 5

Title: Daylight

Side Note: Love this song, luckily it is over played for me, yet..

Here I am waiting, I’ll have to leave soon
Why am I, holding on?
We knew this day would come, we knew it all along
How did it, come so fast?
This is our last night but it’s late
And I’m trying not to sleep
Cause I know, when I wake, I will have to slip away

Artist: Bruno Mars

Title: Runaway Baby

Side Note: I LOVE Bruno Mars, he is one of my favorite artists of our generation. Although, I tend to like his non-singles more than the released singles, runaway baby is one of my favorites.

Run, run, runaway, runaway, baby
Before I put my spell on you
You better get, get, getaway, getaway, darling
‘Cause everything you heard is true

Playlist Thursday: Refreshed for 2013

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.

Today’s theme is: Refreshed for 2013. After an awesome win (thanks for the votes) I have to start 2013 on the right foot note, so here are some songs that are refreshing my running for 2013.


Artist: John Mayer
Title: No Such Thing
Side Note: This song reminds me of high school and serves as reminder to keep pushing forward. Also, he is a BABY in this video. Woah.
Quotable: Well I never lived the dreams of the prom kings
And the drama queens. I’d like to think the best of me. Is still hiding. Up my sleeve. They love to tell you. Stay inside the lines. But something’s better. On the other side


Artist: The Script featuring Will.i.Am
Title: Hall of Fame
Side Note: This song is all about how you can be whatever you put your mind to, and that’s always something I need, running can be so mental sometimes.
Quotable: You could go the distance. You could run the mile. You could walk straight through hell with a smile. You could be the hero. You could get the gold. Breaking all the records that thought never could be broke


Artist: Jason Aldean with Luke Bryan and Eric Church
Title: The Only Way I Know
Side Note: This song also reminds me of good ol’ Vermont and I listen to it when I get a little frustrated and it helps propel me forward/
Quotable: That’s the only way I know. Don’t stop till everything’s gone. Straight ahead never turn round. Don’t back up, don’t back down. Full throttle wide open. You get tired, you don’t show it. Dig a little deeper when you think you can’t dig no more. That’s the only way I know

Playlist Thursday: Cool Down Songs

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 on Playlist Thursday for awhile but I am back now!

Today’s theme is: Cool Down songs. I am choosing to pick songs that I listen to as I am finishing my workout, not the last 5 minutes of a run or a race, I like to call those – power songs.


Artist: Dave Matthews Band
Title: The Best of What’s Around
Side Note: I listen to A LOT of DMB when I am cooling down because it is very soothing and relaxing. This song is one of my favorites. Of course this song has a great performance from the late great Leroi.
Quotable: Seeing things from a. Clearer side than most can dream. On a better road I feel. So you could say she’s safe. Whatever tears at her. Whatever holds her down. And if nothing can be done. She’ll make the best of what’s around.


Artist: Mumford & Sons
Title: I Will Wait
Side Note: This song makes me a tad emotional, I usually listen to it on the way home from the gym, I usually feel completely relaxed after.
Quotable: Raise my hands. Paint my spirit gold. And bow my head. Keep my heart slow


Artist: Jason Aldean
Title: Days Like These
Side Note: I love this song, such a remind to live IN the moment,
Quotable: I got a new shine on my car. Sun is tannin’ my left arm. And while I’m waitin’ on the red light. I’m burnin’ up a little air guitar
