My love of music is clear. It is a part of who I am and I take great pride in the variety of music that I listen to. I created Playlist Thursday to share some music that fuels my running. Some songs shared on here may be typical and over-played, but others might be a surprise and something new. Although we may choose different songs, music is a universal form of expression.

Why the intro?

Giveaway at the bottom!

But first, Playlist Thursday: Dance Songs!

Something Old:

Artist: Paul Simon
Title: You Can Call Me Al
Side Note: This is one of those songs that is BETTER after you have seen the music video. Chevy Chase is golden here. This was always one of my favorite songs growing up. Thanks Pops.
Quotable: “A man walks down the street, He says, Why am I soft in the middle now?”

Something Current:

Artist: Kerli
Title: The Lucky Ones
Side Note: I’m really digging the up-beat techno sounds paired with “pop sound.” It’s been all over my playlist recently and I can tell it’s making me pick up the pace.
Quotable: “When you’re lost, need to be found. I will look for-e-ever”

Something to Consider:

Artist: No Mercy
Title: Where Do You Go
Side Note: 90s bringing it back. Remember when I said “variety” in my music? Case and point might be this list.
Quotable: “Where do you go, my lovely.”

and now it’s time for you to show your “love”


Polk: Love Music Project

Polk has launched a new “micro-site” for people to share their love of music… I told them I already created Playlist Thursday, but the more the merrier, right?. (ha!). But in all seriousness, they’ve created a page where you can post a photo or video where YOU share your love of music. It’s a pretty cool look at what music can mean to many different people. Where you fell in love with it, the first time you heard a song, a glimpse into the history. Whatever you want to make of it.



Polk is best known for manufacturing high performance audio products. Speakers, headphones, electronics and you know those single speakers that offer surround sound? Yep, them! I ordered a pair of their sport headphones and when they come in, I’ll be sure to review them. I usually run in Brand X’s white ear buds, so this will be a great change and I’m looking forward to the improved sound quality.

Here are some ways to follow Polk —  not required.

I was supplied a gift card from Polk to promote the #LoveMusic Project. I decided to create the image and join in on the fun on my own, it was not required… I’m just cool like that. As always, opinions are my own and music belongs to everyone.
