In Honor of CK's 10-Mile Run

My sister is running a 10-mile race tomorrow. I'm excited for her and also proud of her, as my sister has become quite the avid runner over the past year. I mean- I can sprint, but I CANNOT run. I never could. Even at my fittest....no. I stick to the stationary bike at the gym, merci

Anyway, in honor of my big sis Chris, I put together a running playlist. I hope it helps rev her engines and all that:

"Born to Run"- Bruce Springsteen

This was given. DA BOSS, DA BOSS. Because we're from Pennsylvania and that's near New Jersey and that's important. 

"Running on Empty"- Jackson Browne

This song makes me proud to be an Amurrican. Let me wipe a tear from my eye.

TEAR, WIPED. FUCK YEAH.

"Run Like Hell"- Pink Floyd

CK's chant tomorrow: "RUN, RUN, RUN."

"Run"- Snow Patrol
Just kidding! No one runs to Snow Patrol! Lolz!

"Run-Around"- Blues Traveler
AHAHAHAHAH CK LOVED THIS BAND IN HIGH SCHOOL! McDowell Class of 1996 forevers! "Truth About Cats and Dogs" forevs!

"Run This Town"- Jay-Z, Rihanna, Kanye West


She probably has this on her Mp3 player. Hello, who doesn't?

"Never Gonna Give You Up"- Rick Astley



Just because.


GOOD LUCK CHRIS! RUN LIKE THE WIND!

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
