I'm always looking for new songs to run and write to. I find if I find a song works well for one activity, it usually works well for the other. Here are a few recent additions to my play list. I should note that I'm usually just listening to the song, not watching the video. Although I must admit, the video to this first one is pretty nifty.
Lonely Boy - Black Keys
This song has been getting a lot of radio time, but so far I haven't grown weary of it. The song itself is upbeat, while the lyrics tend to be quite dark.
Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People
And this song just demands that you crank up the volume, if only a little. The music video is not the official one. Somebody mashed up the song with scenes from the 1998 film, Pi.
Super Bon Bon - Soul Coughing
And finally, I'm really liking Neon Trees. They've got several songs I've added to my list, but for some reason, this one does it for me.
Animal - Neon Trees
