My Music Monday

I'm in the midst of creating a new playlist for the marathon. 

I have like five songs that make every running playlist, but the rest are open to change. I haven't made a new one since last October and it's time. I'm bored with my selections. 

Oddly, lately, I have not even played music while running,  just trying to tap into my breath. But no one - especially me - wants to hear that for a full five hours. 

At this point I've got about half of it built, though I'm a little ruthless when it comes to cutting something. 

Right now, Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" is on the list. I love the song. I know, right? Me and Metallica?  But it doesn't quite lend itself to running. I used it last Saturday in that race, and it kind of works, but more for a recovery kind of momentum. 

It's not a fast song. Everything is in 4/4 time. And that can work with certain songs, but I'm not 100% sold on this. 

Still, I thought why not give it's day with MMM

I first heard and saw this back in 1992 when I was at my parent's house for weeks recovering from a ruptured appendix, so it's got that correlation too. 

BTW - the video has 1.3 BILLION views.  Who knew?
