asa-chang & junray - hana
I bought my nephew an elephant for his room. He said, "Thanks". I said, "Don't mention it".
Twenty One Pilots - Holding On To You
Da Weekend Warrior
Rehab - Amy Winehouse
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.
This came up today after a couple hours mowing the lawn, and it was perfect. Roots rock, Canadian excellence..
I would run down the lane and into the night; Run so fast I swear my feet would fly; But the smell of the world came into my lungs; The sound of the gravel when my legs went numb; And my heart nearly burst right out of my chest...
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.
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.
~ H.G. Bohn
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
xo man - quag
The Turnpike Down - Lemonheads
Goldfinger's cover of 99 Red Balloons
"It's such a fine line between stupid, and uh..."
"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. :-|
