    I LOVE that you have musicals on your playlist! I run with songs from musicals too!!!! (I’m a Musical Theatre major so it’s basically a requirement ;))
    As always your food looks great!
    This post just made my day! 🙂 Now I know that I’m not the only person to run with some showtunes on their iPod. 😉

    My running playlist is totally random as well, and it also consists of lots of contemporary pop, musicals (I love Wicked and Spring Awakening!), and some hip-hop that I only listen to when I’m running or driving. Right now, my favorites are “Little Lion Man” by Mumford & Sons; “Love the Way you Lie” by Rihanna and Eminem; and “The Woman with the Tattooed Hands” by Atmosphere. I can’t wait to download some tunes from your list!

    I’m embarrassed of my playlists too! Thanks for putting it out there!

    ps I think you mean capers, not chives 😉 I only say that because my husband loves bagels and lox but I cannot stand the smoked salmon OR the capers. Give me a bagel with cream cheese, tomato and onion and I’m happy!

    I love your running playlist! AH! I want it! haha. There was a period in high school were I listened to Totally F****d at least once a week. Saved my sanity while applying to Undergrad programs. =)

    I love your playlist. I am not ashamed to say I still love old school *NSYNC, Britney, Backstreet Boys, 98 degrees 🙂 I still think that is some of the best music ever and it always gives me a little kick in my step when one of them comes on shuffle! I have never been one of those people to “discover” new or hip artists. Mainstream works for me. Be proud of that playlist and rock it!

    • Vikki
      December 10, 2010

      I also have ‘NSync and Britney on my playlist. The No Strings Attached album most especially.

      Seriously, I bet I have a more random mix than most people on mine. Some examples. Cell Block Tango from Chicago on mine. 9 to 5 by Dolly Parton (Best Country Running Song Ever). Shoo Shoo Baby by the Andrews Sisters. Sabotage by the Beastie Boys. Boom Boom Pow Wow by the Black Eyed Peas. Flat on the Floor by Carrie Underwood. Other artists include Bon Jovi, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Taylor Swift, Jay Z, NeYo, the cast of Wicked. But the variety keeps me moving and entertained.

      Sigh. I have lots of Random music in general.

  21. Anne @thefitbridesmaid
    December 10, 2010

    Yeah, we have the same taste in music.

    I remember when So You Think You Can Dance used “You Can’t Stop the Beat” (about 4 years ago) and I had on replay on my ipod for a week! Just makes me wanna dance!

    I admit all the time that I listen to tween music! My playlist always has a ton of Glee, Gaga, Britney, Taylor, Miley, even a Jonas Brothers song or too. I even put on Christmas music around this time of year!

    A good playlist gets you moving regardless of what’s on it.

    My music preferences are varied. I like everything from really mainstream top 40, to obscure types of jazz (like gypsy jazz), to indie folk, to punk, to screamo, to showtunes.

    I recognise a lot of those songs from my playlists. My ipod is so embarrasing. I have a non-cheesey playlist for when I have people in the car so they don’t hear some of the really bad stuff I have on there!

    Your playlist is fun. To each their own when it comes to music. My running playlists are so random too…from Foo Fighters to Kesha to Irene Cara (yup that’s right I said it…Fame is a great running song! – for me anyway). Obviously your music works for you. Fantastic job on the marathon!

    I am in love with Musicals because I was in them my entire life. So I love your playlist!! Spring Awakening is awesome! I love the music from the show, especially “Mama Who Bore Me.” It’s crazy to think that I saw Lea Michele on Broadway and now she is a major star! I knew I should have gotten her autograph. Haha 🙂

    I love musicals! They’re great music to run to. My all time favorite running song is “Jump That Rock” by Scooter vs. Status Quo. Apparently it’s really popular in Jazzercise- my mom does it, and that’s how I heard about the song!

    Hmm, interesting idea to post my playlist. I used to list my fav running songs on my blog but was tired of maintaining it. So now I kinda just put up 5 “songs of the moment” that I update periodically.

    Yay for Eminem… I’ve got a ton of his songs on my playlist.

    My embarrassing running songs: “Untouched” – The Veronicas & “Party in the USA” – Miley Cyrus
