If You’re An Avid Walker… …These 7 Essential Classics Belong On Your MP3Player. Period.

Alright, My Peeps…

…You’re All Very Well Aware By Now That Going For A Walk Is My Primary Means Of Both EXERCISE And MENTAL/EMOTIONAL Downtime.

I Get Out There…

…I Slap On My Tunage…

…And I Go For It.

Sometimes…

…I’m Walking For Distance.

Other Times…

…I’m Walking For A Time-Period.

I Almost Never Know Which I’m Going To Be Doing Until I Get Out There And Get Movin’.

I Like To Change-Up My Routes…

…Trying To Never Go The Exact Same Way Each And Every Time.

Like My Blog, I Tend To Perform The Other Activities In My World As Randomly As Possible.

I HATE MONOTONY.

.PERIOD.

By Maintaining A Feeling Of Pure Randomness…

…My Activities Almost Always Have The Feeling Of NEWNESS.

It’s How My Brain Works…

…And It’s How My Life Unfolds.

I Tend To Just Fall Ass-Backward Into Situations…

…Almost Totally Regardless Of WHAT Said Situation Is.

It’s Both A BLESSING And A CURSE, To Be Sure.

ANYWAY…

…The Point Of This Post Is To Quickly Discuss Some Tunage.

I’m Going To Impart Some Quickie Knowledge On Y’all.

You See…

…I Try To Walk Each And Every Day, When It’s Possible To Do So.

And There Are Many Days When I Go For Said Walks, But I Just Don’t Seem To Have The Energy/Motivation To Go As Long, Or As Far, As I Would Like.

THAT’S WHERE THE SWEET SWEET TUNES COME INTO PLAY!!!

Right Now…

…I’m Going To Share With You Something I Feel Y’all Should Consider For The Next Time You Get Out-&-About.

When It Comes To A Lengthy Walk-About…

…You’ve Gotta Have Those Songs That Motivate You.

Songs Where You Can Time The Steps Of Your Feet With The Beat Of The Song.

They Help You Kick-It-Up At Notch…

…And They Help You Crank-It-Out Like Nobody’s Business.

Here, For Y’all’s Pleasure, Are The 7 Most Important And Essential Songs…

 (in no particular order as I love them all)

…For Powering Through MY Walk.

I’m Going To Begin This With…

That’s Them, My Peeps.

Those Are THE 7 SONGS (and an Honorable Mention) I Simply MUST MUST Have On My Little Music-Box.

I Don’t Listen To All Of Them All The Time…

…But I’m Always Glad To Know I Have Them Handy.

I Derive Much Motivation From Each Of Them…

…And A Heaping Amount Of Pleasure, Also.

If I’m Going To Suggest ANY SONGS That I Feel SHOULD BE On Your Player…

…In Regard To Aiding In Personal Motivation…

…To Get Y’all Movin’ Movin’ Movin’…

…Those Would Be Them.

A Short…

…Sweet…

…Simple Little List Of Jams That Are Very Easy To Obtain…

…And Even Easier To Truly Enjoy!

Are You Ready To Go Tromping-About For A Bit, Yet?

I Sure As Hell Am.

I’ve Already Done One Walk Today…

…And I’m Already Planning On Another.

The Outside Temperature Will Be The Deciding Factor As To WHEN I’ll Be Going For Another Stroll.

I Love To Sweat…

…But I Don’t Wanna Roast.

It’s Supposed To Be One Hot Bastard Outside, Today.

So My Second Walk Will POSSIBLY Be An Evening Affair.

That’s Fine With Me.

It Gives Me All The Time I Need To Come-Up With A New Playlist!

BRING ON THE DAY, WORLD!

I. AM. READY. FO. SHO.

MY Top 3 Walkin’ Tunes: To REALLY Get’Ya Movin’!!!

When It Comes To Goin’ For The Ole Walk-About…

…The Music You’re Listening To Becomes Of The Utmost Importance.

Sometimes…

…You Start To Feel Yourself Slowing Down Just A Tad.

SO…

…You Decide To Kick The Music Into A High Gear.

Something That Will Get You Cranking Along Again At A Minor Break-Neck Pace.

Remember, We’re Walkin’, My Peeps.

Not Jogging.

Not Running.

We’re Just Walkin’…

…But We’re Looking To Take It Up A Notch.

So We Slap On A Tune Or Two Or Three That Get Those Juices Flowin’ Again!!!

You Want Something With A FAST BEAT…

…Something That You Can FEEL Each And Every Time Your Foot Hits The Ground.

YOU And THE BEAT Become As ONE.

Since I Walk A LOT…

…These Are Just The Tunes I Turn-To First When I Need A Pick-Me-Up.
