The corniest running songs on my playlist

So I really rely on music when I run.

I know there are many running purists who enjoy music-free running. Uh. That's not me. Occasionally I don't mind a little convo with a fellow runner… and even rarer, do I like silence… just not my thing.

I don't need to hear my panting/gasping for air breathing. I like music. It motivates me, amuses me and even makes me laugh.

Many a tough run I've "disco'ed gunned" or "lassoed it in" to some obscure dance song that has made a hard run just a bit more fun.

So anyway, as I was getting seriously into one of my songs the other day, I realized that I would be mortified if I was to die on the spot and have someone hear the song that I was so seriously running/jamming to as I sprinted down the street… A song so corny and without a doubt proves, that, I am, indeed, a giant musical dork...

What was this corny song of corny songs?

Um. Ok. Here it is… "Tragedy" by the Bee Gees. Yes. The Bee Gees…

...I really should be holding you
Holding you
Loving you loving you
When the feelings gone and you can't go on
Its tragedy
When the morning cries and you don't know why
Its hard to bear
With no-one to love you you're
Goin nowhere
When you lose control and you got no soul
Its tragedy

Ok. It's not that funny. But seriously, it's a fun song to run to. At least it works for me.

I have a few other corny songs that I would die if anyone caught me listening to would greatly embarrass me on my playlist too:

A few of the best of the worst corniest songs that are or has once lived on my playlist:

Greatest American Hero - "Believe it or Not"
Hold On - Wilson Phillips
Talk Dirty To Me - Poison
St. Elmos Fire - "Man in Motion"
I Touch Myself - Divinals
Gimme, Gimme, Gimme (a man after midnight) - Abba

There are many more but I think those are the most cringe worthy.

What about you? Do you have any delightfully corny songs on your playlist?
