This past weekend I was gearing up for my 20-mile run and thinking about new downloads for the ‘ole iPod. You see, when I run the longer mileage, I have to mentally prepare myself and plot it out in my head before I can actually do it. The past couple of weeks, I thought that Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance” would be a great contribution to my running playlist.
I have to admit that Lady Gaga sometimes annoys me. April and I saw her open for NKOTB in October, and I was familiar enough with her before that and found her a little annoying. But you have to give the girl credit. She did make me want to dance….and run faster.
Last week, I saw the video of her performing “Poker Face” on “American Idol” and thought again that this would be good for my playlist. (Keep in mind, I had to view this on YouTube. I am not that into Idol this season and don’t watch it on a regular basis….now “Dancing with the Stars”…I’m all over it.)
So I bought the album on iTunes on Friday night, downloaded it and haven’t looked back. One of the better purchases I’ve made recently!
Here’s the “Poker Face” video I speak of:
Anyone have any music that I just *have* to have for my running playlist? Speak up here. I have 3 weeks til my marathon and I could use some good music!
