Last week, I found myself unable to stop humming the terrible new Miley Cyrus song, "We Can't Stop." I know, I agree with you, it's awful. But it's also So. Darn. Catchy! Much to my embarrassment, the incessant humming progressed, and, as if my iPhone had been briefly operated by someone else's hands, "We Can't Stop" somehow ended up on my running playlist.
During my third morning run to this newly-improved (questionable) playlist, I came to the realization that as much as I was trying not to love this song, it was resonating with me -- and not for a bad reason: I'm drawn to empowering and motivating lyrics when I run, and when I'm running, I actually can't and won't stop. That Miley, she was onto something!
I dug around the rest of my music library and realized this "can't stop, won't stop" mentality is actually pretty regular for me. Here are a few others I like, although I hadn't necessarily run to all of them. Now, thanks to my brand new Can't Stop, Won't Stop playlist, I sure will.
We Can't Stop -- Miley Cyrus
Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough -- Michael Jackon
Don't Stop The Music -- Rihanna
Can't Stop -- Mayer Hawthorne, Snoop Dogg
Don't Stop The Party -- The Black Eyed Peas
Don't Stop -- Brazilian Girls
Can't Stop -- Red Hot Chili Peppers
Don't Stop Me Now -- Queen
Can't Stop, Won't Stop -- Young Gunz, Chingy
