        Julia1971


          I need to go through this list.  I haven't bought new music in a LONG time.  New favorites since March:

           

          Pompeii - Bastille

          Come With Me Now - KONGOS

          Girls Chase Boys - Ingrid Michaelson

           

          And, I finally succumbed...

           

          I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift

          You're too strong not to keep on keepin' on. - The Pips
          Yes, I am! - Gladys Knight

            apparently I'm a little behind the times, but I've just discovered podcasts.  During my 1st 100 miler my brain became so obsessed with the finish line that all I could do was focus on every word of every song on my mp3 player and then I realized that most of my favorite 90's rock was about suicide!  I found "stuff you should know" (or similar) and it's a couple of guys talking about history and general education in a way that's memorable, captures your attention, and is not boring.  I'm hooked now.  I was bummed yesterday that my run was ending because I didn't get to hear the end of their segment.

              There are runs where I don't want music for the entire 2-3 hours and choose podcasts instead.  This American Life if definitely my favorite.  It's funny because there are some episodes I liked so much that I've listened to them again and I've had "total recall" of the run when I listened to it the first time.  One of my favorite examples.

               

              Edited to add: I see your user name and am adding another example that came to mind from a run.  (See Act 2).

              You're too strong not to keep on keepin' on. - The Pips
              Yes, I am! - Gladys Knight
