Playlist Thursday ~ Thanksgiving


The theme this week is Songs That Remind You To Be Thankful in honour of Thanksgiving – Happy Thanksgiving to my readers in the USA!

First, a quick recap of the rules of participation. Every Thursday we create a list composed of 3 songs that can, or should be, added to your workout playlist. Here is the simple format:

Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old. (I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.)

Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year.

Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Feel free to list any song: old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever.

Keep an eye on Pavement Runner’s blog for upcoming themes and to join the linkup.

Something Old

Artist: Nina Simone

Title: Ain’t Got No

Side Note: A reminder that you can be thankful for the smallest things

Quotable: So what have I got, that nobody can take away? 

Something New

Artist: Paloma Faith

Title: Blood, Sweat and Tears

Side Note: I saw Paloma Faith performing at The Pink Ribbon Ball -a fundraiser for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. A reminder that we should all be thankful for our health.

Quotable: It takes two imperfect people, to dance a sweet ballet

Something To Consider

Artist: The Clash

Title: London Calling

Side Note: I included this because I’m a proud Londoner and I was even prouder than usual this summer when we hosted the Olympics. I felt very lucky to be a part of it.

Quotable: Now get this, London calling, yes, I was there, too, And you know what they said? Well, some of it was true.
