Rod has oh so kindly given us a glimpse into his favorite past time, and what songs get him motivated to do so! Check them out below, with commentary included!
Rod's Running Playlist
So here’s my playlist … I feel like I’m letting you rummage around my underwear drawer right now. Although, I must admit it’s pretty empty—you know how I feel about undergarments. This is the list I made for Brad and I to run to. My music library is massive, but I’m not sharing it all with you. That’s too personal. It’s not like you even know what I look like naked or anything.
My Own Private Idaho – B52’s Because it’s the B52’s and they fucking rock. And they tons of music way better than Love-Shack. Go search and download now. You’ll thank me later
Boys Don’t Cry- The Cure Boy are they full of it. You would never know the difference with my crew. Tony, shit, he’s a fucking hugger. Like’s to talk it out.
Love is a Battlefield- Pat Benetar Do I really need to explain it?
Beat It - Michael Jackson I really don’t like this song, Michael has much better music but I threw it on there to give Brad a hard time because I put this list on his iPod too. He’s a master fapper so this one is an ode to him.
Enjoy the Silence - Depeche Mode It doesn’t always have to be a good beat, this song takes me to good place, and for me—healthy silence—is a good thing.
Hangin’ Tough - NKOTB Okay, I’m not proud but, I’ve never been one to hide anything… well except cocaine when we are running low. But I’m past that now. Sober.
Eyes Without a Face - Billy Idol Yeah, slow again. Good for after I zone-out and hit that runner’s high. Don’t worry, I’ve spoken with my sponsor—that high is totally safe and good with the program.
Rock the Casbah - The Clash Because sometimes you just need to sing jibberish.
I Ran - Flock of Seagulls Pretty self-explanatory although I would like to punch the ad-campaign that used it for that stupid video game… almost ruined it for me.
Rock With You - Michael Jackson Because the list needed some good MJ and this reminds me of roller-skating when I was a kid.
Girls on Film - Duran Duran You know, to reminisce… the good ol’ days.
Me, Myself, and I - De La Soul Impossible to not stop running when this comes on, and start dancing Kid n’ Play style.
Tricky - Run-D.M.C. Well, it is.
