Music To Run To…

People frequently ask me what music I like to run to so I’ve decided to post a list of a few songs(from the 150) from my current “Running” playlist. This way you can pick and choose some songs from this list and perhaps find yourself on a sunny day running alongside these brilliant musicians as well (I like to imagine that they are all with me on my jog…this makes for funny imagining…Bjork in her swan dress running while singing…Kings of Leon in their ultra-skinny jeans trying to look cool while keeping up with me). So here they are…these are the main ones that make me smile the biggest when I’m out there trudging up one of these crazy hills I’m surrounded by.

The Ladder- Andrew Belle
Love Letter to Japan- Bird and the Bee
Mouth’s Cradle- Bjork
Triumph of A Heart- Bjork (both of these songs are completely vocals. There are no instruments at all other than the instrument of the mouth. So have fun listening and thinking “How in the world did she get these sounds with a mouth and voice????”)
No Phone- Cake
Testify- Carney
Brother Lee- Citizen Cope
Systems of a Trend- Dr. Seahorse
Carbon Ribs-John Mark Mcmillan (This song makes me want to smile and turn my face towards my Savior…careful that your eyes don’t close or get teary if you are running out on the road!)
Crawl- Kings of Leon
Hysteria- Muse
Unnatural Selection- Muse
The Nerve- Mute Math
Backfire- Mute Math
Goodbye- Mute Math
Electrify- Mute Math (This is the cd for you if you are wanting to just listen to one cd an entire upbeat run)
All The Right Moves-One Republic
Marching On- One Republic (Careful running to this song…If you try running to the beat and lyrics you could end up looking like a crazy person)
Carousel- Paper Route
Tiger Teeth- Paper Route
Luscious Life- Patrick Watson
2+2=5-Radiohead (Save the last part of this song for the uphill)
Mess of Me- Switchfoot

Remember this is just some of the current songs in the playlist. Please feel free to send and post your own favorites. This way we can all run inspired together πŸ™‚

About sarah macintosh

I am Sarah MacIntosh, formerly the lead singer for a band called Chasing Furies. I am a writer. Some writing has melody some doesn't. Some writing is for myself and some is for others. The songs tend to bubble up inside for quite some time and eventually burst out later with or without a guitar in my hand. Recently there have been towering highs and plummeting lows in my life all which have been carefully guarded by my Savior, Jesus. It is these things that have been written about on scraps of paper, tattered journals, and my faithful mac laptop. These words jotted down have swirled around in my head until they have finally come out of my mouth in melody. Melody and words have joined together and are now being carefully placed and suspended in time on tracks that will eventually be a cd. I will crack the door so that you can see what has been written... here and a a hotel... View all posts by sarah macintosh
