In my ears

I'm basically obsessed with selecting the perfect running mix so I'm always looking for some good recommendations.  Here are some of my favorites:
  • Sleepyhead by Passion Pit
  • Gimme More by Britney Spears (the song that kicked off the 2011 Princess)
  • Meet me Halfway by The Black Eyed Peas
  • Beautiful People by Chris Brown featuring Benny Benassi (the song that got me across the 2012 Princess finish line)
  • Good Vibrations by Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch
  • Two tunes from The Naked and Famous - Young Bloods and Punching in a Dream by (the song that kicked off the 2012 Princess)
  • Move This by Technotronic and Ya Kid K
  • No Love by Eminem featuring Lil Wayne
  • Love and Memories by O.A.R.
  • A few tunes from Foster the People - Helena Beat, Houdini, Warrant and Broken Jaw
  • What is Love by Haddaway
  • Call on Me by Eric Prydz (this one took me across the 2011 Princess finish line, even if I don't remember much of it)
As you can see, my running music is a little all over the map - rock, rap, hip hop, dance, techno.  As long as it has a good beat and has a "happy" tone, it's usually a good bet.  

I remember my Mom listening to a lot of Abba when she first started running and I know she's morphed some of her picks.  Check out her favorite tunes:

  • Good Life by One Republic
  • Firework by Katy Perry
  • Soul Sister by Train
  • What makes you beautiful by One Direction
  • You belong with me by Taylor Swift
  • Hangover by Taio Cruz
  • We Belong by Pat Benetar
So do tell, what's on your ipod for your work outs?
