All I wanna do is bang bang bang bang.

I come by running naturally. My birth father is a runner (he actually does marathons every once in a while). I've been running every day for just over a week and I'm up to 45 minutes on the treadmill. It is probably not a coincidence that I feel like I'm finally pushing up off the bottom of the ocean floor - moving up to towards the light of happiness. I thought I would run while watching television, but it turns out, all I want to do is listen to music. Loud. To help keep me motivated, I have been creating new playlists for each run. For tomorrow's run I've got the following songs on deck:

Hot-n-Fun (featuring Nelly Furtado) - N.E.R.D.
Konichiwa Bitches - Robyn
Cobrastyle - Robyn
Stylo (featuring Mos Def and Bobby Womack) - Gorillaz
Paper Planes - M.I.A.
Galang - M.I.A.
Move Your Feet - Junior Senior
Freak (featuring Kardinal Offishall) - Estelle
Deceptacon - Le Tigre
Hello Good Morning - Diddy
Boys Wanna Be Her - Peaches
You Give Me Something - Jamiroquai
Go! - Common

I know, I lost all my credibility with that Diddy track. But it's a fun tune, so you know, stuff it if you don't like it. I'm taking recos though - please leave me your comments with tunes you think would help keep me moving! I really appreciate it. Like, really really. Just no Queen, okay?


  1. I really like The Muffs' cover of "Kids in America" for running right now.

    I gotta say anything by the Black Eye Peas keeps me moving. P.S. I also have the Diddy song on my playlist.

    bombs over bagdhad (outkast) - BEST RUNNING SONG EVER, Holiday - greenday, combat baby - metric, stronger - kanye west.


  4. Good suggestions!!I think I have all of those songs already - I'll add them to my ficklefeline running mix :-)

  5. Omg, forgot my 2nd favorite so had to come back: Daft Punk Is Playing at My House (Soulwax remix- this part impt, the one with the sirens) - when it really kicks in you feel simultaneously that you can do everything and that your hair is on fire.

  6. ap - you rock - just downloaded it!
