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: Speed Work. Bonus points if you get the movie reference. I am picking songs that I have on deck when I am running speed drills or songs that I turn on when I need to kick it up in a race.
Artist: DJ Khaled featuring Ludacris, Rick Ross, T-Pain, and Snoop Dog
Title: All I Do Is Win
Side Note: I know this isn’t quite old enough, but I keep putting it on lately, and I wanted to include it this week.
All I do is win, win, win no matter what
Got money on mind, I can never get enough
And every time I step up in the building
Everybody hands go up
And they stay there, and they say “yeah,” and they stay there
Up, down, up, down, up, down
‘Cause all I do is win, win, win
And if you goin’ in, put your hands in the air, make ‘em stay there
Artist: Fall Out Boy
Title: Young Volcanoes
Side Note: Their new album is amazing BTW, go out and et it now. This song isn’t a single (yet?) but there is a vide on YouTube and it is my favorite song on the album!
We are wild, we are like young volcanoes
We are wild, Americana, exotica
Do you wanna feel a little beautiful baby?
Come on make it easy, say I never mattered
Run it up the flagpole
We will teach you how to make boys next door
Out of assholes
SOMETHING TO CONSIDER
Artist: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis featuring Ray Dalton
Title: Can’t Hold Us Down
Side Note: This song has been a part of every playlist since the bombings, this song really gets at the mental part of running for me, and always brings me back to a better place.
We came here to live life like nobody was watching
I got my city right behind me
If I fall, they got me. Learn from that failure gain humility and then we keep marching ourselves
Here we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we’ll fight ’til it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
