It’s Thursday, so let’s see what is on Pavey’s list this week… would love to hear you thoughts in the comments below.

Again, here is the format:

  • Something Old: These will be songs that are at least 5 years old. I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.
  • Something Current: These will be songs that have been released within the past year. I know, but you have to give me some leeway here.
  • Something to Consider: These will be songs that are not typically heard on the radio and may be by artists you’ve never heard of or considered running to. This is the wild card category, can be old or current.

Something Old

Artist: Jackson 5
Title: ABC
Side Note: Talk about a trip down memory lane. Ok, I have to admit, I wasn’t born when this was on the air, but Michael Jackson knew how to move his feet, so it makes sense that his music will make you move yours on a run.
Quotable: “Now, now, now I’m gonna teach you. All about love, dear, all about love”


Something Current

Artist: Somebody That I Used to Know
Title: Glee Cast (or originally performed by Gotye feat. Kimbra)
Side Note: This song is all over the place right now. If you haven’t reached the point of over-kill with it, it is fun to add into the mix. I went with the Glee version here. A. Because the show is awesome. B. Blaine rocks. C. It might be a version you haven’t heard yet.
Quotable: “Now and then I think of when we were together. Like when you said you felt so happy you could die”


Something to Consider

Artist: Fort Minor
Title: Remember the Name
Side Note: You may recoginze Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, this was a project he worked on a few years ago and the album was awesome. I love this song. Totally gets me pumped mid-run and has a pretty cool hook. It was also used a few years ago for the NBA playoffs.
Quotable: “This is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill. Fifteen percent concentrated power of will. Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain. And a hundred percent reason to remember the name!” — now tell me that couldn’t be about running!

All right, that is quite the mix. What did ya think?
