Give Me A Beat – 5 for Friday #8

Happy Friday! I am linking up with the DC Trifecta Friday Five again today.


Eat Pray Run DC ~ Mar on the Run ~ You Signed Up For What?

You are in for a real treat here at Dunwaetin. Not only is it FRIDAY and I am once again linking up with the DC Trifecta Ladies, I am also linking up with Mar on the Run’s Give Me a Beat.

Double the Link-Up’s, Double the FUN! Say WHHHAAAATTT???

Who doesn’t like Double the FUN?

You? Really? If you’re not into fun I have some friendly advice for you … bugger off, you’re killing my Friday Dance buzz.


My playlists are rather eclectic and I am always looking for something new to add to the rotation because I have the attention span of a 2-year-old. I get bored rather quickly with something that only days ago kept my legs turning over. I have anything and everything from the early 70’s (Mr. Jagger and his Rolling Stones) to current top 40’s (Eminem) and wanted to share with you 5 songs that I haven’t ever taken out of my playlist rotation because they make me feel FAST.

1 – Start Me Up ~ Rolling Stones

2 – All the Small Things ~ Blink 182

3 – Lump ~ The Presidents of the United States of America

4 – Here It Goes Again – OK Go

5 – Smooth Criminal ~ Alien Ant Farm (Michael Jackson Remake)


What’s on your playlist?

  1. I love that Smooth Criminal video! My favorite song on my playlist right now is Still Into You by Paramore, its really catchy and I listen to it on repeat a lot, I just love the lead singers voice!

    • I would love to know what is on your playlist, I’m always looking to add to mine but more so now that I have 2-3 hour long runs in my schedule.

  4. NICE! I’d forgotten about some of those songs – but they are very much pump you up songs! Good pics.

    • When you say late 90’s I start feeling my age :) Start Me Up is the first song to come on in my playlist, who can resist Mick?

  7. I love the mix of music you have on your playlist! Such a nice mix of new and old music. For me when I run I need usually a faster beat to keep me going so I like a lot of dance stuff but I don’t mind a slow song thrown in at the right moment during a run too.

    • I’ve thrown a few slower ones in too, like Lordes, for cool downs. I’ve been running more and more without music lately and I am starting to find some music more of an annoyance than a pick-me-up but ALWAYS keep it with me just in case. :)

  8. GAHH!!! there are so many things I love about this post! First off, that TGIF gif is hilarious! Love your songs and thanks for the double up linkup!! I totally forgot about All the small things! Great post.

    • The Mister turned me on to All The Small Things, I’m not usually a fan of Blink 182 but that song makes me want to RUN! Thanks for hosting the link-up :)
