Best of Playlist Wednesday!

Well, I'm getting really close to my race and it just dawned on me during my run this past Sunday morning that I haven't updated my running playlist since JULY! How insane is that? I am definitely going to need help with some suggestions for new additions before I leave on the 17th for my race! I desperately need to update and any suggestions in the genres of Calvin Harris or Jay-Z/Eminem would be greatly appreciated!

Also, it literally hit me when I was driving home from work that I'm running the Detroit International Half Marathon in ELEVEN DAYS. Ohhh, no big deal… I don't even know what I'm going to wear! Crazy!

In lieu of new songs to share, because let's be real, there haven't been new additions to the playlist in nearly 2.5 months so I thought why not do a 'best of' post! Here are some of my favorites that I can't seem to get rid of off my playlist and will definitely get me through this last week and half before my big race:

  • Lose Yourself- Eminem
    • Does this song really need any explanation? "Success is my only motherf-ing option, failure's not."
  • Heaven is a Place on Earth- Belinda Carlisle
    • This song has literally been on my running playlist since I ran my first half marathon back in 2011! Love it and love the 80s!
  • Forever- Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem
    • Ahhh another favorite that's been on my playlist since 2010! I think I fell in love with Drake and all his emotions back when I first heard this song so I love running to this one!
  • American Boy (feat. Kanye West)- Estelle
    • I just love how damn catchy this song is! I tend to sing aloud when I run and this is definitely a fun song that I just love!
  • DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love (feat. Pitbull)- Usher
    • ummm, this song takes me back to things from fall 2010 but I try to ignore those silly thoughts and just enjoy my Ursher and upbeat music! This song never fails to get me going during a run!
  • Hold It Against Me- Britney Spears
    • OK, say what you want about Britney but this song is pure genius. I mean "You feel like paradise, and I need a vacation tonight"-- lyrical amazingness. I love having Britney on my playlist but this has definitely been a staple since her last album came out! 
  • Feel so Close- Calvin Harris
    • I am pretttty obsessed with Calvin Harris. His music is one of my favorites for my running playlists but this song is definitely one of my favorites!
  • I'm Real (feat. Ja Rule) [Murder Remix featuring Ja Rule]- J.Lo feat. Ja Rule
    • I don't care what people think about Ja Rule. I've been obsessed with this song since I was 15 and I love having this song on my running playlist! 
  • What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger)- Kelly Clarkson
    • This song really needs no explanation! It is just a great song to keep me motivated and encourages me to keep pushing through whatever negative thoughts and feelings and accomplish my goal.
  • Glamorous (Feat. Ludacris)- Fergie
    • Well, this is just for fun! I love Ludacris so this is mainly for his portion in this song but I love how ridiculous it is too!
  • Mowtown Philly- Boyz II Men
    • Every time I hear this song, without a doubt I think of that one episode of Full House where Stephanie messed up in her dance recital to this song. This is another one I love to sing out loud when I run and always get funny looks haha!
  • We Found Love (feat. Calvin Harris)- Rihanna
    • Oh Calvin Harris, you musical genius! I'm not a huge Riri fan but I love this song. 
  • Get Lucky (feat. Pharrell Williams)- Daft Punk 
    • OK, so this song is a newer addition from this past spring/early summer but I'm pretty obsessed with this song and anything with Pharrell so it's an overall winner in my eyes!
  • Only Girl (In the World)- Rihanna
    • Again, not the biggest Riri fan but there's just something about this song that it never left my running playlist since October 2010! So catchy to sing along with as well!
  • Sweet Nothing (feat. Florence Welch)- Calvin Harris
    • Ok, I swear, last Calvin Harris song.  Florence Welch just has the most amazing voice and totally makes this song amazing and addictive. I can't help but singing along whenever I hear it so you can imagine how I am when I hear it on my running playlist!
