See Jess Run: Volume 3

Okay, admittedly, perhaps this playlist should be titled “See Jess NOT Run.” Unfortunately, I’m having a wee bit o’ the asthma flare-up, so I haven’t been training. With any luck, that will be turning around this week, but I have been feeling pretty guilty about my lack of running.

In that vein (and also since I don’t have much running-related things to share this week), I decided to make a guilty pleasure playlist. You know what I’m talking about: it’s the reason you’d tackle someone if they tried to steal your iPod and browse through your downloaded songs. This playlist includes the kind of songs where, the first time you hear it on the radio, you say to yourself, “Ugh, what IS this?” But by the fourth or tenth or twentieth listen, you’re singing along to lyrics you didn’t even know you knew. For any of you who have seen Easy A, it’s the playlist equivalent of “Pocketful of Sunshine.”

Please note that my sharing of this playlist required a lot of courage on my part.

P.S. Please ALSO note that it took everything in me to include Backstreet Boys in this playlist, because I am strictly *NSYNC. But I mean…As Long As You Love Me is really good. I guess.

So now you know my musical secrets and shame. In return, I want to know what your guilty pleasure song is. Tell me in the comments!

  1. Full disclosure – I downloaded Miley’s “Party In The USA” because it reminded me of the DisBroad dance party at Wine & Dine. My husband has not stopped ridiculing me yet.

  2. I am literally LOLing right now. I was going to comment and say my guilty pleasure songs on my running playlist include Ke$ha and Pit Bull so when you put them together in one song it’s awesome! So I love Timber. And I see it on your list. The funny thing is that I was trying to scroll through your list just to read the songs but it ended up playing the song loudly from my phone. At work. And the song was Timber! Hahaha. Sitting here opening no one can recognize the first few bars of that song. 🙂 thanks for the laugh.

  3. Here’s something shameful- I didn’t know Party in the USA was by Miley because I’ve only heard the Kidz Bop version. I’m super cool.

    My fave shameful running songs are silly hip hop- the Thong song and Perfect Gentleman (the stripper love song, haha) bring some levity when you need it.
