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.
