Just Call Me "Flo" yonce!

A few years ago, my BIL was sorting through my old, old CD's and made an off-hand remark. He called me "Flo-yonce". Why? Well, if you took a look at my old, old highschool/college era CD collection...it would be rather...eh.....hip-hoppy. I liked the songs that made you want to shake your booty.

I still do, but I've grown since then. My music palatte now includes Christian music, Country (always), the "Nora Jones-ish" coffee house type songs, oldies like James Taylor, beach tunes from Jack Johnson, great voices like Josh Groban, or the homey stuff of Steve Tyrell. Shoot, I even have David Tolk's piano music (wow...check it out if you haven't!).

So today, I went for a run and well.....as always....my Flo-yonce past comes back, but it's toned down a little. I thought I'd share with you some of my "running playlist" on my ipod, which may date me a little bit! I don't know why, but I just thought I'd archive this post so my daughters can make fun of me one day. Maybe you'll even add one of these to your list!

Janet Jackson "Where Are You Now?"
Colbie Caillat "Tied Down"
Fergie "Big Girls Don't Cry"
Beyonce (of course!) "Irreplaceable" and "Crazy in Love"
Christina Aguilera "Fighter"
Katharine McPhee "Love Story"
Natasha Bedingfield "Unwritten"
Kelly Clarkson "Since U Been Gone"
Taylor Swift "You Belong With Me"
Britney Spears "Toxic" (yes....shame on me.)
Michael Jackson "The Way You Make Me Feel"..............

The list goes on, and even thought it doesn't include much of the heavy hip-hop I used to listen to, that's only because I'm more of a light-hippity-hoppity girl these days. Beyonce is about as hip as I get.

Anyway. Just a silly little post. You can berate me now.

Can you dump your ipod playlist onto mine??? I love Kari Jobe and The Revelation Song but it is not really running music...I think that might be why I never make it past 2 miles on my own!:)
Running and P90X...you're a super star...and on TAKS day!

What? No NKOTB? I am utterly shocked! Bri makes fun of my music. A friend told me about her 15 year old son asking if they had heard of a 'new' group that was really cool. It was Bon Jovi. Needless to say they laughed.
