New Jams - 004

I have one last race coming up this weekend and I am in desperate need of overhauling my workout playlist.  So once again, I'm sharing a few of my recent jams and hoping you'll share some too!  See how this works?  Everybody wins heh!

1. Pursuit of Happiness by Kid Cudi: This one comes on one of my Pandora stations from time to time and every single time, I crank it up and jam.  I finally downloaded it last night.

2. Get Lucky by Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams: Like everyone else on earth, I'm loving this jam.  It's not quite the fast beat I usually go for, but it's still making it in the rotation.

3. Take You Higher  by Goodwill and Hook N Sling: This is another one that I found through Pandora...and again, I jam every time.  There's a radio edit and a club mix...I like both.

4. Castles in the Sky by Ian Van Dahl: This is an oldie from my college days.  It reminds me of frat parties and spring break.  Yea...  Crazy techno beat is a good pump up for speed work or when I need it in a race.

5. Gotta Get Through This by Daniel Bettingfield: Another oldie, but I like to tell myself "I just gotta get through this mile"

Please leave a comment with some of your favorite jams - I will be forever grateful!


  1. It's not really a new age song, but I LOVE 'Danger Zone' by Kenny Loggins (from Top Gun). It gets me very motivated!
