My top 15 songs on my 2015 summer playlist! Crank it up!

Standard

My entire life has been majorly influenced by music. Starting with the Irish Rovers as a kid, Queen Ida and K.D Lang as a teen and then of course all the hair metal one Walkman can handle.

I would like to say my tastes have improved as I have aged but I am certain I am musically stunted at age 27 when I was at the height of my “bar star” lifestyle. Ok, so I may not go to the bar anymore but I do love me a good dance tune, especially if it is aimed at getting me up off the couch and to lace up my runners. And yes, I am aware I like too many Pitbull songs, deal with it!

The Walkman has been retired and replaced with an iphone and Beats, here are the 15 songs getting me fired up this summer:

1. Fun – Pitbull featuring Chris Brown https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKbR7u8J5PU

2. Pass at Me – Timbaland – featuring Pitbull (it’s 3 years old but new to me) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYJVKT0V-9U

3. Honey, I’m Good – Andy Grammer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Go7gn6dugu0

4. I Really Like You – Carly Rae Jepsen (this song took a long for me to connect with but she is a sweet little Canadian so I had to add her – she makes my teeth hurt #TooSweet) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qV5lzRHrGeg

5. Don’t It Make Ya Feel – Headpins (I have always LOVED this song, it’s the perfect mid-run song! God Bless 1982!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRPTpHFaV9U

6. & 7. are courtesy of my recent viewing of Magic Mike XXL, Joe Manganiello I LOVE YOU!

Ooh La La – Goldfrapp https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uco-2V4ytYQ

Closer – Nine Inch Nails (WARNING NSFW – but perfect for power walking and other things a little bit more adult) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTFwQP86BRs

8. The Bomb – Pigeon John https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFAFA3B3CWU

9. Ship To Wreck – Florence + the Machine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9v8jLBrvug

10. Black – The Soft Moon (this song is dark and it’s supposed to be. I Shazamed it as they revealed the murderer on the TV show “How to get away with murder”)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jU-2yXPmHzo

11. I Don’t Like it, I Love it – Flo Rida featuring Robin Thicke https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tw8mpgccugc

12. First Kiss – Kid Rock (it’s in no way my fave song on this playlist but it gets the job done – I kinda miss the grittier version of Kid) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTCnno-3EGE

13. Flashlight – Jessie J (I often make this the song I listen to pre work-out) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzwkcbTQ7ZE

14. Girl Crush – Little Big Town (This is my cool down walk home post-run song. I love LBT’s story of never giving up) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYZMT8otKdI

15. FOREVER and ALWAYS this song will be on EVERY playlist I EVER make….It’s a Long Way to the Top – AC/DC https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyJYTIAb7vc

Alright there you have it – now lace up and get after it! Go for a walk, run, skip, whatever, just get outside!!!

Be good!
