Well I could go all old school and say Happy New Year. But you will get plenty of that. At least we all get the day off work right? I know a morning run after a later than normal wake up will be the best way to ring in the new year. Last night was a blast and exactly what I needed.
Yesterday’s post was such a needed release. It may have sounded all negative but I see it as a hug progress point. Heck – writing it made me feel on top of the world. Worse is ignoring it and claiming everything is golden. Lying to yourself and others does nothing.
Today I am fully aware you will be bulldozed by top this, detox that, goal this, resolution that. So take this as your five minute break from all of it. I had high hopes of doing all of my top favorite jams of 2013. Well, I couldn’t even number them or narrow them down. (You know Macklemore & Ryan’s whole album would be all up in that) Instead, some of my favorite 2013 jams. And because you all have the day off, plug in those earphones to listen.
Can’t Hold Us – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ( I still do know every word to this song)
Counting Stars – OneRepublic (god I could listen to this all day every day – especially when I run)
Radioactive – Imagine Dragons
All things Pentatonix – hard to pick just one!
Sweater Weather – The Neighborhood
Holy Grail – JZ featuring Justin Timberlake
Sail – AWOLNATION
Beauty and a Beat – Justin Bieber featuring Nicki Minaj (guilty pleasure all the way)
Little Talks – Of Monsters and Men
Acapella – Karmin
My Songs Know what you did in the Dark (Light em Up) – Fall Out Boy (however – now that is a body pump song I cringe when I hear it, ha!)
Chloe – Emblem3 (I can’t tell if I like this song just because the boys are adorable or if I really like the song, what a dilemma)
Home – Phillip Phillips (brings a wave of homesickness every time)
Hey Brother – Avicii
HeadBand – B.O.B. featuring 2 Chainz (because I need my hardcore rap, I didn’t include a lot of these just because.. well the swearing is out of control and the videos are worse. whoops. still make great running songs)
I can’t emphasize enough this is NOT a full list, not even close. I know after I post this I will think of a bajillion more songs I could have included. Typical.
Question: What was a jam you enjoyed this year?
