No this is not a post pertaining to to a movie starring Zac Efron or anything else he does (honestly, he creeps me out a little) but I love anything Matthew Perry does… Could he be any more hilarious!? (Any Chandler fans out there? Bueller?)
No instead, this is of an entirely different nature.
Last week, I worked from my parents house, and on my drive out from SF that morning, the radio stations were full of talk, talk, talk and no music. I wanted some tunes.
Enter iTrip. Enter Pandora NSYNC station. I had an inspiration and I just went with it.
This is what my running playlist has been missing!
When I was in high school I lived for boybands and pop music. (OK so maybe I still do.)
I saw the Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, NSYNC and 98 Degrees in concert more times than I care to admit. (It was more than 5, less than 15). 😉
I forgot what great running music songs like “Bye, Bye, Bye”, “The Call”, “Stronger”, “Crazy” (ahhh Britney in her glory days, I miss you) and “It’s Gonna Be Me” can be.
I ran both of my runs this weekend to that Pandora station, and was probably grinning cheek-to-cheek like the teenybopper I
once was am.
They even threw some solo JT and Michael Jackson in for good measure.
And “He Loves You Not” by Dream. Anyone else remember Diddy’s first foray into putting a girl group together? I chose not to either until it started blasting in my ears.
I didn’t skip one song.
My music just got a much needed upgrade (not unlike the Situation’s latest pay-day to not wear Abercrombie and Fitch clothing) and I cannot wait for my next run!
What kind of music really gets you running?
Were you a boyband fan?
