Walk to your songs!

Filed under: Music — Cris @ 02:36

Music time again. I was walking the other day again with music from my mp3 player and I realised some songs are walky songs. Not that they walk away from you. They walk with you. It seems perfect to hear them when you walk. Here goes a tiny list I can remember now

1. Doing that thing you do – The Wonders – for fast walking and shaking to the song

2. Raindrops Keep falling on my head – Burt Bacharach – obviously when you walk in the rain and look up at the sky (make sure you are not in the middle of the road when you do this)

3. Vulnerable – Roxette – for really slow walking and pausing to muse on things in between

4. Like a Virgin – Madonna – when you jog moving your head this way and that

5. How do you do – Roxette – when you walk with your hands in your pockets forgetting the whole world around you

6. Nothings gonna change my love for you – Glenn Mederios – this is a song you will want to sing yourself when you take a walk in the beach and you have got company – kinda like a walking group song.

7. Girls Just Want to Have Fun – Cindy Lauper – jumping song. You jump all your way hearing this song. You might want to watch out for those jumpin-not-allowed sign boards. Some offices have these strange rules against jumpin at work place.

8. The Dog Song – Nellie McKay – For people who walk with their dogs. The dog and the human could shake their heads together – there are lyrics for both

I should have got sad songs here too. I thought about it but then it is not advisable to walk when you are sad; you should take a 10 day vaccation and sleep, eat and watch TV until you are ready to enter the happy world again.

  7. Some songs detach us from the world around, those songs should be avoided while walking.. Or else many thing will be detached from us or even we will be detached from the world itself..

    I like to listen to songs when I am alone. Real nostalgic ones.. It makes my mind fill with memories and makes me feel my loved one is around..
