Hip Hip Hooray

    My ipod has a lot of stuff from my favorite bands, notably:

     

    Chevelle

    Incubus

    Tool

    Radiohead

    Muse

     

    I like a lot of different stuff, but I suppose I'm most fond of alternative rock.

     

    Loved Undertow and Aenima!  Then I sort of got away from listening to them, but there were days when literally the only thing I would listen to was Tool.

     

      By the way, song #1 is a great start, I would only be afraid it would get me going out too fast. Another great Florence+the Machine song is Kiss With a Fist. Does not quite get the airplay because it is pretty disturbing, sort of a rockabilly ode to domestic violence.

        Thanks for the recommendation!  I don't know that much about reggaeton mostly because I didn't know where to get started.  Other than Calle 13, but they insist they're not reggaeton anyway.  Smile

         

        Daddy Yankee is my recommendation.  Anything by him.  That's what modern Puerto Rican music is.

          If you really want to go old school underground, Playero Street Mix and The Noise 6 are two albums I would recommemd, if you can find them.

            I just listen to our local classic rock radio station when I run, and that's if I listen to anything at all. I usually prefer silence. But in the house, or the car, I like to listen to old (or new) Canadian rock bands. Recently, it's been a lot of Tragically Hip, I can't get enough of their new song At Transformation

              No tunes on the run, but here are a few kicking around in my current rotation --

               

              Niki & The Dove - Mother Protect (Goldroom Remix)

               

               

              Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs - Garden

               

               

               

              I really liked these two!  but what the heck is going on in the Garden video?  lol

                Barenaked Ladies? They are actually very big here in Detroit, I guess because we are on the border?

                Please tell me you are not a Nickelback fan! Not that there's anything wrong with that...

                My current favorite from the Great White North is Hot Hot Heat.

                  Do any of you know how to download iTunes from a desktop to an iTouch? I used to just drag and click until the software changed in December, which was so simple and fast. Their web site rots. My next step is to uninstall and try again unless I figure it out.

                      I see a noted lack of Lady Gaga and Britney Spears, Oski. Is that on your private mix?

                       

                      I like to live on the edge. I am on Pandora or iheartradio all the time. And depending on my mood, I rotate between "Black Keys Radio", "Ray Charles Radio", "Journey Radio", and "Backstreet Boys Radio" (don't judge, I was a 12-year-old girl when they were popular). During Christmas, I ran exclusively to Christmas music.

                       

                      Oddly, I don't run with music on my long runs. I see them as mental practice for race day. If I can run 1-2 hours without music on a random long run, I know I can make it through a race without it and be fine.

                        No, no.  My personal mix is mostly Color Me Bad and Boyz II Men.

                            I hope that The Tragically Hip aren't considered "new" Joking.
