WAS THIS GUY REALLY FIST-PUMPING TO ONE OF ELVIS'S SLOW JAMS?! ++

  1. To set the scene: it is a gray, slightly chilly Chicago morning.
  2. On my block, just now, I was passed by a middle-aged gent on his run.
  3. As he passed, he was clearly singing along to something on his headphones.
  4. What I could overhear was "I...can't...help..." and then he passed by me. Like five seconds later I saw him do an emphatic fist pump in the air.
  5. The only song I can think of off the top of my head is
  6. Elvis Presley's 1961 hit "Can't Help Falling in Love with You."
  7. That CAN'T merit a running fist pump, can it?!
  8. If so, I am really doing exercise all wrong.
  9. Please help me think of other possibilities.
  10. The way I make sense of the world depends on it.
