The Playlist that didn’t happen

You may remember me mentioning the playlist that I had organised for RunMelbourne

I only ended up listening to a few songs on the playlist before I turned it off. It’s not that I didn’t like the music, because I had some great tunes on there.  I just felt like I didn’t need it.  It’s also nice to not rely on music and to just be in tuned with the run.

That being said, I love discovering new music.  So I thought I would share my playlist – that wasn’t, as it may inspire you to go out there and crush it.

The Playlist that wasn't

We Didn’t Start the Fire – Billy Joel
On The Pop of July – RockMyRun
Classic – MKTO
R.E.V.O. – Walk Off the Earth
Pompeii – Bastille
Story – Sam Tsui
Change Your Life – Little Mix
Die Young – Ke$ha
One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks) – One Direction
My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark (Light Em Up) – Fall Out Boy
Still Into You – Paramore
Amnesia – Ian Carey & Rosette Feat Timbaland & Brasco
Release Me – Agnes
This Is What It Feels Like (Radio Edit) – Armin van Buuren [feat. Trevor Guthrie]
Turn Up the Love (feat Cover Drive) – Far East Movement
Levels – Avicii
I Could Be The One (Nicktim) – Avicii vs Nicky Romero
The Party Next Door – Avicii Ft. Taio Cruz
Iron ( With Nicky Romero ) – Calvin Harris
Big Banana (feat. R3hab & Prophet) – Havana Brown
Unstoppable – Toby Mac
Can’t Hold Us – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Featuring Ray Dalton
Thank You – MKTO
Right In (Original Mix) – Skrillex

I should also mention that the RockMyRun mix is 30mins long. So this playlist goes for about 1h55mins.  If you drop the RockMyRun mix then it’s about 1h30ish.

I would also like to note that this post is also in association with The Active Mum – Active life Link up.

  1. Hi Matilda!! Thanks for linking up today!!

    I used to absolutely love to listen to music when I worked out.. although these days, with toddlers, I actually just love the peace and quiet when I run! 😉 Though, I think if I was doing some of the distances you are running I would be making up a playlist too!

    Have a wonderful day!

    1. You are most Welcome Aanie.
      I must say on my shorter runs, I will listen to music. On my long runs, audio books, and when I do my club runs, nothing. In a social running situation I actually prefer not to have the ipod, not too sure when that happened but I don’t mind. One less thing to stress about.

  2. I love listening to music when I run. But not when I am in a race. Occasionally if I am in the mountains I pass up on the music too:)
    I love that several of the songs you picked are on my own playlist:)
    Man I have too many favorites right now. Oddly I am going through this fast country music kick lately, so I’d say a few country songs are going to be getting added to my playlist shortly:)
    Thanks for sharing, I may just copy a few of these and add them to my own:)

    1. Kristy go right ahead, that was the entire intention of this post.
      Today I ran with my phone (i was doing speedwork, and had to keep my phone with me cause I thought i might get a call to pick up a sick child – which btw didn’t happen). And there were songs on there that I hadn’t listened to in like forever. It was a nice change.
      I’m really into Gloriana at the moment, so I think one of their songs will make may next playlist.
