Playlist Thursday: Dance, cuz he’s back

Playlist Thursday: Dance, cuz he’s back


One thing is clear… runner’s love running to music they can dance to. “Dance” songs are always our most popular, so we couldn’t go too far into 2013 without our favorite theme making an appearance. ALSO, as if this theme was projected amongst the stars, we have a very special appearance in the “something current” category. That’s right. He’s back.

Same rules:

Something Old: 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: Songs that have been released within the past year.
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Feel free to list any song: old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever.

Something Old

Artist: Deejay Alice
Title: Better Off Alone
Side Note: Remember this song? Heard it the other day and was like “oh ya!” Hope you enjoy the trip down (semi-recent) memory lane.
Quotable: “Talk to me… oooooo…. Talk to me.”

Something Current

Artist: Justin Timberlake feat. Jay Z
Title: Suit & Tie
Side Note: Looks like he’s bringing “classy” back. He clearly must have heard all of our pleas on various Playlist Thursday posts to come back to music… nicely done everyone. It’s not an AMAZING song and is an interesting first single after such a long break, but welcome back JT.
Quotable: “And as long as I’ve got my suit and tie I’mma leave it all on the floor tonight”

Something to Consider

Artist: House of Pain
Title: Jump Around
Side Note: It starts at about 28 seconds, but when you HEAR the sound, you know what’s about to happen. It’s that horn: baaaaaam. baaam bam bam.
Quotable: “Pack it up, Pack it in, Let me Begin”

What did you think of this week’s line up?



  1. I heard the JT & Jay Z song at work tonight and instantly decided it needs to make its way to my ipod shuffle.


  3. i love JT – never heard of his new song though lol and you’re right – itz not totally awesome.

  4. I have not heard Better Off Alone in AGES. Such a good one. And is it crazy that I’m ridiculously excited that JT is back ‘tho I’m not crazy about this song either.

  5. Love me some J.T.!!!!! And of course House of Pain!! As soon as you mentioned Jump Around I automatically started singing it. Gotta love that song!!

  6. I’ve never even heard of the current song, I will have to check it out!

  7. We danced at Downtown Disney to Jump Around…and there was calf soreness the next day lol. I Love the new JT and think it’s a great starter song. Alice DJ makes me think back to my Jink-o jean days…ah, memories I’ll never get back lol

  8. I still need to join and make my own playlist. Music is such a huge deal to me, and so is JT ;)

  9. House of Pain!!! Such a guilty pleasure!

  10. i haven’t heard ‘jump around’ in wayyy too long. just added it to my running playlist! #imheretowin

  11. House of Pain – awesome. I could probably still singe every word to that song.

  12. I hadn’t heard JT’s new song…like you said, it is interesting. I heart JT though!

  13. Uh Oh… While JT’s song sounds a bit weird to me right now, I have a feeling in a few weeks I am going to be the psycho driver JAMMING OUT like no one’s business when driving around LA. Watch out for the black ford explorer with the blond inside, AH HA HA!

  14. JT’s song is just ok. Not impressed for his first single in YEARS!
    “Jump Around” has been my jam since 7th grade summer camp. Classic!

  15. That first one just rocks! Seriously, brought back some, um, wild college memories. :)
