FMM: What’s On Your Playlist?

I love music. I have a wide range of musical tastes, and just love music in general, but the truth is… I’m pretty stuck in the 1980’s, when I grew up. 😛 And my running playlist reflects that. I’m not going to list the whole thing, because my marathon list is 80 songs long. And as I find new songs I like, I change it up a little, but there are a few core songs that make it on to every single running playlist I have. 🙂

  • She Sells Sanctuary – The Cult
  • Love Removal Machine – The Cult
  • Ghost – Slash with Ian Astbury
  • Gotta Be Somebody – Nickelback
  • Symphony of Destruction – Megadeth (great for running sprints!)
  • Rise Above This – Seether
  • Unkind – Sloan
  • All the Small Things – Blink 182
  • St. Elmo’s Fire – John Parr
  • Alberta Bound – Paul Brandt
  • If You’re Going Through Hell – Rodney Atkins
  • Swing – Trace Adkins
  • Jose Cuervo – Tracy Byrd
  • Online – Brad Paisley
  • 1985 – Bowling for Soup
  • You’re Gonna Go Far Kid – The Offspring

Throw in a bunch of AC/DC, a little Quiet Riot, some Poison, some Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, ZZ Top, Bruce Springsteen, Kiss, Def Leppard… you get the idea.

It’s an odd mixture of 80’s hair metal, country, and a bit of current stuff. But it gets me through my long runs, and makes me smile as I run!

Now it’s your turn. Don’t forget to come back to share a link in the comments!

      Oh it was a simpler time… when the men we admired had better hair and make up than we did! 😛

    I know little or none of the music you list,. I’ll check it out, but I have a pretty weird taste and it is what it is :p

    • Kris says:

      LOL… my list is really stuff that people who were teenagers in the late 1980’s would get. 🙂 I date myself when I talk about music. The cool part is, my almost 16 YO son likes my music too, so we have a little in common. 🙂

  3. I am so with you with loving the 80’s.

      The 80s were fun. The 90s meant I had to grow up and pretend to be an adult… I’ll take the 80s!!

    I love the 80s. I especially love hairbands. And my heart was warmed to see the Cult in there.

    Here through FMM.

      Love the Cult. Saw them live a few years ago, and Ian Astbury’s voice is a beautiful now as it was 20 years ago. Nice, because far too many of those guys have lost their voices due to drinking, drugs, and plain old aging!
