Top Ten Tuesday: Songs I Run To

I've been doing a lot of running lately, often in the heat of the day. Sometimes with the sun beating down on me and sweat dripping into my eyes and my legs and lungs aching, the music in my ears is the only thing that pushes me forward. So I thought I'd share ten of the songs I run to. Some of them are obscure. All of them are (relatively) old. Because old music is good music in my book.

(And if you watch the videos, you'll see more than a few mullets...)

1. I Wish I Had A Girl by Henry Lee Summer

2. Back To You by John Mayer

3. The Secret of My Success by Night Ranger

4. Survivor by Destiny's Child

5. Rolling In The Deep by Adele (this one's not old... but as my friend Ariel says, how can you hear this one and not run??)

6. Midnight Blue by Lou Gramm

7. No Easy Way Out by Robert Tepper

8. Something's Always Wrong by Toad The Wet Sprocket

9. Maniac by Michael Sembello

10. Runner by Mannfred Mann's Earth Band (Saved the best for last. In my opinion you can't beat this song to run to.)
Pin It!

I actually just started running about 7 days ago and was looking for some good music to run to. Thank you for sharing these songs!

Oh my goodness! I have not heard "Runner" in years. My mom used to run to that song on her Walkman years and years and years ago. :-) She trained for the NYC Marathon with that song.
