Need some songs for your running playlist? Want a little entertainment or something to think about while you are running? Here are some songs that are heavy in the “innuendo” category.

in•nu•en•do: noun, an indirect intimation about a person or thing,especially of a disparaging or a derogatory nature. (Source)

The 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: Def Leppard
Title: Pour Some Sugar On Me
Side Note: You know you remember it. No, they were not the Ramones and the comparisons were not fair. Either way, this song still rocks on my playlist.
Quotable: “Listen! red light, yellow light, green-a-light go!”

Something Current

Artist: Alicia Keys feat. Nicki Minaj
Title: Girl On Fire
Side Note: I absolutely LOVE running to Alicia Keys. There are three versions of this song. A Bluelight version (acoustic?), the “regular” version, and this, the Inferno version (which features NM). All three are available on iTunes. — Nicki also gives a shout out to Gabby and her Olympic glory.
Quotable: “Oh, she got both feet on the ground. And she’s burning it down”

Something to Consider

Artist: AC/DC
Title: You Shook Me All Night Long
Side Note: Yep, shook. You shook me all night long. I think this may have appeared on a Playlist Thursday before… oh well, deserves another nod.
Quotable: “The walls start shaking, earth was quaking.”


There you have it… three songs that are most likely about something other than the literal translation… but I could be completely wrong.

In case you missed my last post, I took some photos over labor Day weekend as a salute to the end of summer. Top 10 Photos.

Also, don’t forget to head over to the catalogue page to see all the other Playlist Thursday posts from around the web. Playlist Thursday Catalogue.
