Friday Five – February 14th – Favorite “Love” Running Songs

Happy Valentine’s Day!  With most people focusing on love and other related ideas today, the DC Trifecta Bloggers (Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Mar from Mar on the Run, and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What?!) are centering this week’s Friday Five theme around love.


I thought it would be fun to share my five favorite running songs with the word “love” in them.  None of these are sappy love songs, but rather upbeat songs that keep me going while I’m running.

My top five favorite “love” running songs are:

1.  Queen’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”

2.  Aretha Franklin’s “Freeway of Love”

3.  Bob Sinclair’s “Love Generation”

4.  Bon Jovi’s “You Give Love A Bad Name”

5.  Michael Franti’s “Say Hey (I Love You)”

QOTD: What is your favorite “love” running song?

  6. I don’t know if I have a favorite song with “love” in it! That’s kind of sad! I’ll have to think about it!

  7. Awesome song list – I love your take on “love” for the V-day friday five things!!! Now I am going to have some of these in my head all week. 🙂

  8. As silly as it sounds I love all these love songs 😉 Not sure about how good it would be to run to but I love ‘I had the time of my life’ from Dirty Dancing, sure they say love somewhere in that song!

    Hope you had a nice weekend.

    Aaah this is great! Although to be honest I don’t run with music much… I know that makes me a bit of the odd one out!
