        Definitely will get you going... even if you are not a winehouse fan (were).


        Cheap and Evil Girl

          Anything by Boy Hits Car.

          I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING.  

           

          "Mental toughness is built by doing something that is hard over and over again, especially when you don't feel like doing it. Our society has conditioned us to believe that there should be no discomfort, to stop when we are uncomfortable. But the discomfort we feel when we're doing a challenging workout is an important part of the strengthening process." -Jim Afremow, The Champion's Mind: How Great Athletes Think, Train, and Thrive

            The late, great Doc Watson - anything of his that's uptempo. That said, I never listen to music while running. He tends to speed up my walks to work though.


            day after day sameness

              This came up today after a couple hours mowing the lawn, and it was perfect. Roots rock, Canadian excellence..

               

              Kathleen Edwards

              Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless


              Not dead. Yet.

                 Thanks for the link!  That song - in turn - brought to mind this well-known monster.

                 

                I think Gammy Ray rocks a little harder, and Frankenstein is a bit more melodic, but I totally see the comparison.  They have similar spacey sounds mixed with a hard, aggressive beat.  Fits like a glove in my Medium Core playlist.

                 

                Now you've got me thinking... maybe Karn Evil 9 - 1st Impression, Part 2 would fit too.

                 

                And down the rabbit hole we go.  Smile

                How can we know our limits if we don't test them?

                  I dig this version of Tennessee Stud!  I also get into his version of Sittin' on Top of the World

                   

                  Another amazing flat picker.

                  Revenge of the Nerd

                    I find myself in a room, empty and it's bare

                    with nothing but a mirror and I know you're waiting there

                    I'm looking for an answer, but I don't know who to ask

                    I see my own reflection, but this time I got The Mask

                    One of these days is none of these days.

                      This Local H cover of Britney Spears' "Toxic" cracks me up, and thus, I also find it mighty motivational.

                       

                      Local H's cover on Youtube

                          The Turnpike Down - Lemonheads


                          salty

                            Goldfinger's cover of 99 Red Balloons

                            "It's such a fine line between stupid, and uh..."

                            "Clever."

                            "Yeah, and clever."

                              my two current favorite pace breakers:

                               

                              clutch -- crucial velocity (perfect tempo hard rocker)

                              folly -- broken  (NJ ska/punk/metal insanity; when all hell begins to break loose at 3:20, my pace drops to 3:20/mi)

                                Frankie Smith - Double Dutch Bus

                                 

                                This song caused me to turn a 3 mile easy run into a tempo.  :-|
