Music I Run to, and Sometimes Cry to, Cuz Running Heightens My Emotions I Guess

When and if I run...
  1. Tightrope - Janelle Monae
    Usually I'll listen to this twice, FYI, and I usually get a little dance-y which is awkward while you are running...
  2. I Can't Stand the Rain - Ann Peebles
    If it's raining I throw this in to the mix. And I live in Portland, so it's probably raining
  3. Pumpin' Blood - NONONO
    I'm undecided on whether I actually like this song, but it makes me think of my heart which is totally killin' it when I run, so I think it's important. The heart is amazing, guys! It just keeps in pumpin'
  4. We Will Rock You
    The first time I ever teared up on a run was to this song! I was just totally feelin' it and it was a beautiful day and I was running over a beautiful bridge and the build up in this song is amazing, and now I get teary almost every time I hear it...
  5. Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Terry Riley
    Anything minimalist really. Great for a long run where you don't really care about speed. I just kinda space out and run and it's pretty nice
  6. Run the World (Girls) - on repeat forever
    When this comes on its over! I just keep playing it on repeat and sometimes pump my fists in the air and will sometimes even sing if I'm not running fast enough! I get teary on this one sometimes too...
  7. Wanna Be Startin' Something - MJ
    One time I ran a half marathon and they measured it wrong and it was 16 fucking miles, and this song got me through it! ma ma se ma ma sa ma ma coo sa indeed!
  8. OPERA!!!!
    Any opera you like, any aria you like! It's awesome for when you just need to feel some power. I cry on every beautiful high note, in almost every aria, ever written. Also can be used when painting a house - the neighbors will think you are sooooo coooool!
