Playlist Thursday: Up the Tempo

These next few weeks of Playlist Thursday posts are going to be good ones!  Pavement Runner has come up with some awesome themes.  I really love this weeks theme.  Those of you that know me, know how much I love to run fast.  There are a group of songs on my ipod geared specifically towards picking up the pace and they really do help me kick it in to overdrive.

The "Rules" of Playlist Thursday:

Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old.
Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year.
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Feel free to list any song: old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever floats yer boat.

And whatever you do, don't forget to head over to Pavement Runner's blog to check out the other participants posts!

Something Old
Artist: Red Hot Chili Peppers
TitleHigher Ground

NotableThis song goes way back.  Steve Wonder did it first and then the Chili Peppers took it and spiced it up.  Gets me every time.  Who's rockin' the air bass with me on this one?
Quotable: "World, keep on turnin' cause it won't be too long."

Something New
Artist: Tegan and Sara
Title:  Closer
NotableThe twins from Calgary have a new record out that is very different from their previous release.  They've headed in a much more danceable direction and I like it.  I like the beat of this a lot.
Quotable: "Here comes the rush before we touch, come a little closer."

Something to Consider
Artist:  Arctic Monkeys
Title:  Brianstorm
Notable: Pretty much every single song on this album makes me want to run fast.  This one is a fairly new addition to my playlist.  Definitely gets the legs pumping. 
Quotable: "Brian, top marks for not tryin', so kind of you to bless us with your effortlessness"

What do you think?  Will any of these get you running faster?

RHCP rocks... literally. The other 2 are new artists to me. Good stuff.

The Tegan and Sara song is great! I didn't like a lot of their earlier stuff, but I really like this, and it has a great beat. Do you ave a song that is your absolute go-to when you need a push?

I'd say pretty much anything by the Arctic Monkeys. Especially if it's off the same album as Brianstorm (My Favourite Worst Nightmare).

Tegan & Sara are new to me! I do love some old school RHCP! Flea has always made me giggle with his nudity preference.
