Spring is here, and not a moment too soon. And now that Mother Nature is finally cooperating, it’s time to move your workout outdoors and have a little fun. Miss Wingman tends to enjoy running – correction – enjoys the feeling of accomplishment after COMPLETING a run. So, I thought it only fair to share with all of you my latest running playlist. Just in case you were in need of some new fitness tunes.

“Authority Song” – John Mellencamp (Because no one ever went wrong with a little ‘Coug in rotation).

“Move Along” – The All-American Rejects

“Red Nation” – Game feat. Lil Wayne

“What I Like About You” – The Romantics

“Howlin’ For You” – The Black Keys

“‘Til I Collapse” – Eminem & Nate Dogg

“Ni**as In Paris” – Jay – Z & Kanye West (Can’t have an upbeat playlist without a little Jay and ‘Ye. True story).

“Bad Girls” – M.I.A.

“Now That We Found Love” – Heavy D & The Boyz (Yes, it’s old, but it also kicks ass. I dare you not to bob your head.)

“Hello” – Martin Solveig & Dragonette

“All Alone” – Fun. (Pretty much anything by them qualifies, but this is a favorite)

“All Night Long” – Type3 Vampires

“Sure Shot” – Beastie Boys

“The Eye of the Tiger” – Survivor (Oh don’t act like it’s not the most motivating exercise song of all time. And while you’re at it, might as well throw in the Rocky Theme, too).

“She Doesn’t Mind” – Sean Paul feat. Pit Bull

“Little Talks” – Of Monsters and Men

“A-Punk” – Vampire Weekend

“We Found Love” – Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris (Yes, it’s a girly song – get over it – it’s also really, really good for running).

“All the Above” – Maino

“Stronger” – Kanye West

“Going Out In Style” – Dropkick Murphys

“Gold On The Ceiling” – The Black Keys

“If We Ever Meet Again” – Timbaland

“Get Your Money Up” – Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole & Trina

“Welcome To The Black Parade” – My Chemical Romance (If you can get past it’s exceptionally slow start, once it kicks in, your legs are guaranteed to, too).

“H.a.m.” – Jay-Z & Kanye West

“Hypnotize” – The Notorious B.I.G.

“Uprising” – Muse

“Dancing With Myself” – Billy Idol (Don’t laugh, it has a great beat for running, promise).

“Thirsty” – ZOX

“Club Can’t Handle Me” – Flo Rida

“All Downhill From Here” – New Found Glory

“I Wanna Go” – Britney Spears (Also girly – but if you’re OK with having Ms. Spears on your iPod, you just may run twice as hard when this song comes on, I do.)

Now lace up your sneakers and get down to business, boys. And don’t forget to crank up the volume.  -MW.iWINGMAN

Maybe it’s because I’ve been traveling a bit lately (and still not done), or maybe I just feel the need to unload some tracks on all of you. Either way, the dramatic swing between time spent behaving badly and the quiet lull of airport downtime has caused an interesting playlist to emerge. So, in honor of the long weekend, here’s a list of solid songs I’ve had in heavy rotation, for your President’s Day enjoyment. If you listen closely enough you can almost chart the course of my weekend’s antics.


And just to ensure you that this is Wingman relevant, you can play this on long drives with your girl sitting shotgun. She will most likely approve…at least I think so.

“Keep You Right” – Blind Pilot

“Cough Syrup” – Young the Giant

“Into The Fire” – Thirteen Senses

“If You Run” – Boxer Rebellion

“No Surprises” – Radiohead

“Love Interruption” – Jack White

“Bright Lights” – Gary Clark, Jr.

“The OtherSide” – The Roots

“Little Black Submarines” – The Black Keys

“Bad Girls” – M.I.A.

“Can’t Let Go” – Lucinda Williams

“Tighten Up” – The Black Keys

“Under Cover of Darkness” – The Strokes

“We Are Young” – Fun. feat. Janelle Monae

“For You and Your Denial (acoustic version)” – Yellowcard

“Check the Rhime” – A Tribe Called Quest

“Hey Jude” – The Beatles

“New York” – Blind Pilot

And there you have it: my entirely schizophrenic playlist as of late. Do with it what you will, but it has served me well thus far. I hope it does the same for you.iWINGMAN
