Summers of Yore

Summer makes me want to wake up and go for a run. In 5 years of living in LA I've rented 5 different apartments. I've gotten myself accustom to many different running paths: along Venice beach, the streets of Koreatown, Sawtelle to Stoner Park, North Holllywood Park, and now, my favorite, Runyon Canyon. Having a good beat is crucial to feel good while pounding your feet on the ground. As I start up my running craze again I always go back to some old playlists I made in the past. The playlist I made below I imagine was put together probably in the summer of 2006. It's good for a nice, easy 25 minute run.

Trick & the Heartstrings - Nobody but a Loser
Trick & the Heartstrings disbanded sometime ago. One of my favorite bands to see of all time back in the good ole NYC days. Alex Gedeon has since moved back to LA and has started a new group under the name Yellow Alex. Be sure to check them out.

James Brown - I'll Go Crazy
This man will always make you want to move.

The Strokes - Ize of the World
Eff the side projects. Get back to being the Strokes.

Depeche Mode - Enjoy the Silence
Just one of the many great songs inspired by heroine...
