Let Me Be Myself 3 Doors Down
These Days 3 Doors Down
Your Arms Feel Like home 3 Doors Down

Each of these songs has something about it that inspires me, especially when I am exercising. At least running or elliptical, I don't listen when lifting weights.

While both the music and lyrics are what lands a song here most of the time, a few of the trance/techno songs are just the music/beat. Likewise there are probably a couple that the music doesn't do too much, but the lyrics have something inspiring to tell.

Usually the iPod shuffle is on shuffle and the songs play randomly. If I am not in a mood for a song, I just click next and usually the next song or two does the trick.

Lately, I've just been listening to the last four Three Doors Down songs:
It's Not My Time
Let Me Be Myself
These Days
Your Arms Feel Like home

The music, bass line especially, and the lyrics both pick me up as I'm pushing the limits of my legs. A woman I dated a few years ago had a saying "better at 40 than at 20". That is pretty much not going to happen for me and I have no illusions of it. But it's not my time, and I keep going to keep myself active, energized, and healthy (not to mention to keep my eating habits from making me 400 lbs).


  1. I am fascinated by the overlap between my workout playlist and yours. There isn't that much, and it's seemingly random but I'm sure there is something to it...

  2. It is your fault and I was ready to blame Chris Cactus!
    Reading down your playlist last night put "I Don't Like Mondays" in my head this morning!
    S'okay though. It's a good Monday morning song ;-)

  3. I love finding the playlists of others!

    What a great mix of music.
