This week’s winner is Angie H., who was randomly chosen, but whose comment about “Billie Jean” made me snort aloud. Congrats, Angie! I hope y’all will come back next week to play again.
I always run on Friday mornings with my trusty iPod Shuffle plugged into my ears. Usually, I’m working out tricky plot problems, and I don’t pay much attention to the music. But on the bad days — the slow, plodding days where I just want to go home and bake and then eat an entire tray of cookies — the music becomes the most important thing in the world.
I like to run to awful music. And I am not ashamed.
My two favorite current songs are both Friday songs. Here they are, for your enjoyment!
Rebecca Black’s “Friday”:
Katie Perry’s “Last Friday Night”
I have to say, I’ve never seen either of these videos before, and they are fairly awful. My friend Leah provides me with most of my running music, and I usually don’t even know what the songs are called, much less who sings them and whether they are eleven years old. (Rebecca Black is an INFANT! No one told me!)
Whatever. I still fucking love both of these songs, and they make me run fast.
