My Ears Are Bored

This post is not about the advantages/disadvantages/upside/downside/you will get run over by an elephant if you run with music/if you don't run with music you will be so unmotivated you will never get out of bed again.

I often, but not always, run with my iPod. As I have been spending a lot of time on my feet, my usual running songs have been causing me to snore a bit.

So I am running low on new music to run to. Anyone care to toss some suggestions my way? I listen to just about everything (today's shuffle saw Modest Mouse followed by The Nields followed by Eve followed by Brett Dennen followed by The Prodigy followed by Vivaldi followed by Jay-Z) and honestly couldn't care less about the genre, just about the motivation factor.

That is all.

Got You All in Check," Busta Rhymes; "Tillman Co.," Dave Carter and Tracey Grammar; "I'm Shipping up to Boston," Dropkick Murphys; "Gay Bar," Electric Six; "Stronger" Kanye; "Man in the Mirror," Michael Jackson; "Here it Goes Again," OK Go; "Ride of the Valkyries," Wagner; "Ninja," 7 Seconds of Love.
