This is the one song I've discovered in the last couple of years that I really like:
And where did I find this song? In my son's MLB 10 The Show baseball video game. It's interesting that a video game can introduce you to new music, but we need video games to introduce us to new music? Unfortunately, "All In" is about as good as it gets between and The Grouch and Eligh and me because nothing else of their resonates with me.
I have hundreds of songs on my little mp3 player that I listen to only when I run and I can only stand maybe 10-20 of them, and only a couple of those were even made in the current century.
Maybe if I was a more capable runner music wouldn't matter because I'd be competitive and disallowed from listening to music at races at the risk of being disqualified from prizes. "Luckily," I don't have that problem. So it's a constant struggle to find music that a) motivates me to run, and b) doesn't make me feel like a greasy old man for listening to it. Oddly, it's not that easy.
I hope that some magical running music fairy will float over me in my sleep and sprinkle some dust on me that'll allow me to find foot-moving music with ease when I wake up and my little 2GB mp3 player will collapse under the weight of my trying to stuff so many tunes into it.
I should just stop being fuddy and duddy and give in to the audio stylings of "Baby." Yeah, and maybe there really are magical running music fairies who can sprinkle dust on me while I sleep...
