"Turning Tables"- Adele. This one screams "I'm so sad, and I don't know what else to do about it besides write a song". It's so not the epitome of a running song, but between its gutsy piano and Adele's booming words, it pumps me up in a weird, lyrical way.
"Breathe In, Breathe Out" - Mat Kearney. Between this guy and Coldplay, I'm not sure if this playlist could get much wussier. But don't hate. There's something to be said about a song that tiptoes around for a few minutes, whispering sweet nothings, before it finally smashes into a crescendo of guitars and drums and epic, soaring vocals. Plus, this song was on a Grey's Anatomy soundtrack back when I thought the world revolved around Meredith's skinny ass and Derek's husky tenderness. Did I just write "husky tenderness"? Gross.
What "WTF" song(s) grace your running playlists?
