What I’m Working Out To Wednesday

Begging for Thread

I have an old school iPod Classic that I keep in my car. It has something like 12,000 songs on it. My brother in law was making fun of me the other day because I guess that’s not how you’re supposed to transport music anymore. I asked how everyone else does it, and he said that now we are putting our music on our phones. I guess that makes sense, but how can I have all 12,000 songs on my phone? So, iPod Classic it is. First world problems (hate that phrase, but if the shoe fits…).

I haven’t downloaded anything new lately. The holiday season kicked my ASS this year. But I have been going through my iPod and found a beat that I forgot about and figured I’d share it. Banks had a few EPs in 2013 and then a full album (Goddess) in 2014. This was one of her hits off of her album. Enjoy!

Now that we are in 2016, are there any new beats on your radar?

    I have an iPod Classic too, but I’m not using it very much anymore–I use Spotify!

    This is a good song. My new favorite running song is Coldplay’s Adventure of a Lifetime.

      I do love me some Coldplay – need to check that out for SURE!!

    Ah I was thinking of you the other day and I’m glad to hear everything is going well. I miss you!

    • allisonfiorini January 13, 2016 / 9:35 am

      Miss you too!!! I am going to read your blog today and catch up. I needed a blog breather, but I miss everyone!!!

    Rock has his iPod too. He keeps it hooked up in the car and sometimes I laugh at some of the stuff on there.

    • allisonfiorini January 13, 2016 / 10:04 am

      That’s what I do! Hook it up in my car – and then when I go back and look at what’s on it I’m always so excited when I find old stuff!

    I gave my ipod classic to my mom and she still uses it! I recently added Eye of the Tiger to my playlist for some much needed runspiration.

    • allisonfiorini January 13, 2016 / 10:15 am

      Ahhhh great song!!! Needs to be on every runner’s playlist. I get SO PUMPED when I hear it!

    i’m all about Spotify and love finding new music! one of my friends is such a crazy indie music junkie and we love to talk about it in the gym in our bldg, so i always follow the playlists he creates. do you use Spotify? if so, i’ll give you his name to follow him – he’s one of my best resources!

    • allisonfiorini January 13, 2016 / 10:56 am

      I NEED to get on Spotify! Like so badly. I will get on that this week and hit you up for his name when I figure it out. Need to do it!!!!! Thanks girl!! xo

    I’ve got Sirius XM in my car, so I get to hear a lot of new stuff that way. I’d be so lost without my Sirius! Because of that, I think I only have 6 songs on my iPhone, and they are only played in case I can’t find anything else! My iPod holds all the running tunes.

    • allisonfiorini January 13, 2016 / 11:16 am

      I miss having Sirius! I am so getting it in my next car. I LOVE Alt Nation and Sirius XM U!

    I love Banks. “This is What it Feels Like” is my favourite off that album.

    • allisonfiorini January 13, 2016 / 11:59 am

      I thought of you with this song. I think because you liked Halsey so much! I love Goddess off the album too – she’s pretty great!!!

    I’ve still got an iPod Classic too. I’d love to just use my phone, but there’s no way i can store all my music on it and my route to work doesn’t have a good enough signal to stream music. #firstworldproblems indeed!

    • allisonfiorini January 14, 2016 / 10:44 am

      Yesssss keep using that iPod classic!!!! Love it!

    I am addicted to this song. (The more I read your “what I’m working out to” posts, the more I realize our music taste is so dang similar.) Beggin’ for Thread has been on my running playlist since last year’s marathon!

    I’ve been listening to a lot of Bowie this week.

    • allisonfiorini January 14, 2016 / 10:45 am

      It’s such a good one! I think we have good taste in music ๐Ÿ™‚ I really love everything (except not much of a country fan)!

    Hey Alison, great to see you back on the blog…hope you a nice break! I’m a bit of a late developer with music tech but I finally got everything into my iPhone so that’s pretty much all I use now though I need to figure out these streaming services some day! Also think I finally may have found a decent Bluetooth headphone solution for running but need a few more test runs! Cheers!!

    • allisonfiorini January 14, 2016 / 10:46 am

      Hi! Thanks, glad to be back! Bear with me as I finally get caught up over the next few days! Let me know how the Bluetooth headphones go – would love to get a pair for my husband! He just started running and uses his phone too.

      • 50in50marathonquest January 14, 2016 / 3:27 pm

        Will do!! I’m sure I’ll post a quick review over the next week or so…way cool on your husband getting started!

      • allisonfiorini January 15, 2016 / 9:28 am

        Yes! Post away! Sometimes at work your blog won’t let me comment. Dumb techy restrictions here. Don’t they know I need to know what my peeps are doing?!?!!?

  11. Laura January 13, 2016 / 8:19 pm

    Yes! Love this song!

    I still love my iPod Classic, it’s an integral part of my commute! When I feel nostalgic, I pick an artist and listen to everything I have from them. ๐Ÿ™‚
