What I’m Working Out to Wednesday

X-Ambassadors
“Litost”

This is a song off their earlier EPs. Litost is a Czech term that means ‘a state of agony and torment created by the sudden sight of one’s own misery’. It’s such a beautiful song – maybe not a “pump you up” beat for a workout, but it’s on my running playlist and I enjoyed hearing it in the later miles of my race!

Any slow songs on your playlist that you like to run to?

    I have a few. One is the song from last year’s Boston, “Run, run, run.” I also LOVE the Vienna Boy’s Choir version of “Nothing Else Matters.” Also, The Tenors version of “Forever Young.” I started crying when I heard that on a recent run.

    The X-Ambassadors are a weird band to me. I like about 2/3 of their songs, but once in awhile one comes on the station that I just HATE. They really play around with their sound, which is cool, but it means I can’t depend on them.

    I do love this one!

      Totally agree. I don’t really like their whole newer album – but the EP that this is on is really good!! The EP is called Love Songs, Drug Songs. I really like it!

    Nothing comes to mind as we speak, but there is definitely a few that I like!
