For the longest time, I never ran or worked out with an iPod. A few months ago I found a little Nano that my parents had given me. I was about to drop it off at the Goodwill store, but decided to see if it worked. It did. Hmmm, says I. I went to the iTunes store and bought a couple of 69 cent songs just to try it out.
I checked the store this morning and downloaded 16 songs. I still enjoy running au natural, er, au audial (as in my ears are naked and wide open) but in the gym and on the subway the little Nano has become part of my attire.
I focused mostly on workout tunes today, and in no particular order here are a few of the gems I downloaded:
Stranglehold by Ted Nugent http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0c3d7QgZr7g
So What by Pink http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaz5tGl5Yho
Bang Your Head by Quiet Riot http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEj6b5ZS0tA
Insane in the Brain by Cypress Hill http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5oWzB4Xgzw
The Golden Age by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5h-LAvQDCQ
When I was out on Friday with Myke Cole and Peter Brett we were talking about writing and listening to music. Both of them can do it. I can’t. Even music without lyrics mucks up my thought process. On the other hand, when I workout music acts a force multiplier and I go Citius, Altius, Fortius (Faster, Higher, Stronger).
