Playlist Thursday: I wanna rock!

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: Rock. I am hoping to throw in a few different types of rock for you today.

SOMETHING OLD

Artist: Aerosmith
Title: Love In An Elevator
Side Note: Bean Town represent. I love a lot of classic rock. This particular category was hard as I had about 5 different songs I wanted to choose. My sister and I used to love this song and sing it at the top of our lungs.
Quotable: Jacki’s in the elevator. Lingerie second floor. She said ‘Can I see you later. And love you just a little more?. I kinda hope we get stuck. nobody gets out alive. She said ‘I’ll show ya how to fax in the mailroom honey. and have you home by five’

SOMETHING CURRENT

Artist: Anberlin
Title: Self Starter
Side Note: This is from there newest album, there is no real video, but I love this song.
Quotable: Last night rolled over beside my bed. That sort of madness, could leave one dead. Our eyes deceive, we were on fire. Mistook you for love and love desire. I still can’t feel nothing just want to hold something. Tell me again what’s real, tell me again what to feel

SOMETHING TO CONSIDER

Artist: Queen
Title: Killer Queen
Side Note: I could of gone with the typical Queen song for this, but I decided to pick one that is more well known but not your go-to Queen song. The song has enough lulls and pick ups that my pace increases, but not too much that I burn myself out. And FYI Freddie Mercury RIP what a talent, I wish, I had been older when he was alive, there has been no other musician with his vocal range.
Quotable: She’s a Killer Queen. Gunpowder, gelatine. Dynamite with a laser beam. Guaranteed to blow your mind. Anytime

Playlist Thursday: Epic

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: Epic. Songs that will live on forever, good or bad. Songs that are of your generation. The songs I pick may not be from my generation but are still epic songs.

SOMETHING OLD

Artist: Beastie Boys

Title: So What’cha Want

Side Note: I know most people associate my generation with

Nirvana, but I never got it. I have been a Beastie Boy lover for as long as I can remember. Also this is my favorite rock band song.

Quotable: Well it’s wack when you’re jacked in the back of a ride. With your know with your flow when you’re out getting by. Believe me what you see is what you get. And you see me I’m coming off as you can bet

SOMETHING CURRENT

Artist: Kenny Chesney

Title: Welcome To The Fishbowl

Side Note: I can’t think of any artists that have current songs (besides my bff John Mayer) that could be considered classic artists. So I am going country on this one. Kenny is a classic artist.

Quotable:You don’t have to be famous now to be a star.
Just get caught on video and there ya are. You just lost your privacy. Now you’re swimmin’ around in here with me. Everybody else may know. It’s all a big freak show. Welcome to the fishbowl

SOMETHING TO CONSIDER

Artist: Queen

Title: Somebody To Love

Side Note: I love Queen, I think Freddie Mercury’s death was such a loss to the music world, there will never be another musician quite like him. Also, if you only know the Glee version, please do yourself and listen to the original.

Quotable: Got no feel, I got no rhythm. I just keep losing my beat. I’m ok, I’m alright. Ain’t gonna face no defeat. I just gotta get out of this prison cell. Someday I’m gonna be free, Lord!

What are your epic songs?
