I needed something to add a little skip in my step

I have not updated my workout play list in a year and a half and I was ready for a little something new.  I scoured the Internet for recommendations and included songs that I have liked on the radio lately.

I looked for upbeat songs and/or songs that made me happy.  Here is what I have thrown into the mix:

Machinehead Bush

Killing Me Softly With His Song Fugees

Me and Bobby McGee Janis Joplin

Domino Jesse J

That’s Right (You’re Not from Texas) Lyle Lovett

Harder to Breathe Maroon 5

Party in the U.S.A. Miley Cyrus

Fat Bottomed Girls Phillip Phillips

Can’t Stop The Rd Hot Chili Peppers

SOS Rihanna

Runnin Down a Dream Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

Lonely Boy The Black Keys

Crazy in Love Beyonce

Shame on You Indigo Girls

Good Girl Carrie Underwood

What Makes You Beautiful One Direction

Rumor Has It Adele

Waka Waka Shakira

Cal Me Maybe Carly Rae Jepsen

Roxanne– Juliet Simms

I’ve gone through the mix a couple of times and I’m enjoying it.  Shakira’s Waka Waka is really fun and I was surprised how great the Tom Petty song made me feel- I’ve listed to him for years but never considered adding it to my running playlist.  My favorite of the moment though is Rhiana.  Her music is so versatile and the song SOS made me stop mid-run and dance and THAT is a fun way to start the day!

Do you have any new songs that I could add to the list?
