For this Friday Five, I pulled out my iPod shuffle and pushed play! I thought it would be fun to see which of the 100+ songs would randomly show up. I’m a not a runnergirl in a rocking world for nothing…my iPod is filled with some of my favorite rock anthems. So let’s throw up the rock horns and turn up this Friday!
Devour by Shinedown
Ah, yes! A good song for me when I’m having a tough time in a race. The pounding beat usually helps me pick up just a bit and the lyrics are very motivating for me. With the lyrics in the song, it’s a great one for busting through the parts where you start getting tired…or even busting through the wall.
Take it and take it and take it until you take us all
Smash it and crash it and thrash it and trash it
Waiting One by All That Remains
A little bit of a slower song, but it picks up near the end. It has a great strong bass beat, so I find it easy to match my footfalls to it. I also like rock ballads so this would be a good one for when you are kind of lost in a run and just need to get lost in the romance of lyrics. It’s also a “you betrayed me” kind of song so some of the lyrics are a little angry rocker chick.
Sound of Madness by Shinedown
Another one by Shinedown and one of my favorites! The lyrics and beat make me want to throw up my fist and rock along every time I hear it! What a great title too while running a marathon..Sound of Madness!
When you gonna wake up and fight… for yourself?
I Miss the Misery by Halestorm
Nothing better than a rocker chick absolutely singing her ass off! Lzzy Hale is one of the absolute best! Some of their songs are filled of rocker girl angst mixed with a little bit of seduction and it’s so good! Maybe she’s singing about the love/hate relationship I have about a marathon. Hmmm…
Breach Birth by Chevelle
I am a self-proclaimed Chevelle groupie. It’s true. I would love to spend a year following Chevelle, but I just try to catch them anytime they are playing within a few hours of me. They are my favorite band and there is just this unspoken connection I have with their music. This is probably one of my favorite songs of theirs. It’s not one that was ever released to the radio, but it’s one of their best songs! They play it religiously at all their concerts for those fans who know it’s that good…
And I secretly have a crush on Pete Loeffler…
Some try and fall beneath molds
Well it’s your right so
I’ll keep on this path
Turning around bending shapes
Cutting it in
