Soundtrack of my Life - The Marathon Playlist

I don't normally run with music, but I put together a playlist just in case I need a little something to get me through the last six miles this Saturday.

It's Time by Imagine Dragons
I'm opening with this one. Great beat and lyrics

So this is what you meant
When you said that you were spent
And now it's time to build from the bottom of the pit
Right to the top
Don't hold back

It's time to begin, isn't it?
I get a little bit bigger but then I'll admit
I'm just the same as I was
Now don't you understand
That I'm never changing who I am

Chasing the Sun by Sara Bareilles
It's no secret I am a HUGE Sara fan, so many of her songs will be on my playlist. I know all the lyrics and can sing them if I need to keep my mind off things.

You said, remember that life is
Not meant to be wasted
We can always be chasing the sun!
So fill up your lungs and just run
But always be chasing the sun!
The video is from a live performance of the song, and as usual, better than the studio recording.

Counting Stars by One Republic
I love that the song starts with an acoustic version of the chorus

Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I've been, I've been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars
Yeah, we'll be counting stars

Glamour Puss by KT Tunstall
Off her Tiger Suit Album, this song rocks with a ton of sass and attitude.

Long legs ... taking you somewhere
Catch your reflection in a window pane
The universe is startin' to feel ya
Drinking tequila like it's the name of the game

Well you know it hasn't happened yet
You're relying on your next cheque
I know that you're a glamour puss
My explanation's useless
So you chew, chew on the root
In your beautiful high heeled shoes
Miss Glamour Glamour Puss

Love Runs Out by One Republic
I guess I'm on a bit of a One Republic kick - I discovered this new song while streaming One Republic's Native Album, which has been re-released as an extended version. I downloaded the song from iTunes after a few listens. It is amazing and totally fits the running theme.
I'll be your light, your match, your burning sun,
I'll be the bright and black that's making you run.
And I feel alright, and we'll feel alright,
'Cause we'll work it out, yeah we'll work it out.
I'll be doin' this, if you ever doubt,
'til the love runs out, 'til the love runs out.

I'll be your ghost, your game, your stadium.
I'll be your fifty thousand clapping like one.
And I feel alright, and I feel alright,
'Cause I worked it out, yeah I worked it out.
I'll be doin' this, if you ever doubt,
'til the love runs out, 'til the love runs out.

I got my mind made up and I can't let go.
I'm killing every second 'til it saves my soul.
I'll be running, I'll be running,
'til the love runs out, 'til the love runs out.
And we'll start a fire, and we'll shut it down,
'til the love runs out, 'til the love runs out.

Some of the other songs on my list, in no particular order:

Don't Stop Believing - The Glee Version (because it is an a capella rendition of the song)
Shake it out - Florence and The Machine
Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People
Let the Rain - Sara Bareilles
Parking Lot - Sara Bareilles
Locked out of Heaven - Bruno Mars
Stone in Love - Journey
Best Day of my Life - American Authors
I Can Talk - Two Door Cinema
Pompeii - Bastille (yes, it's overplayed, but catchy)
Clarity - Zedd, feat. Foxes
