Swinging Saturdays #31 ~ Run! until your longs give out


Swinging saturdays is a musical meme hosted by Ice Cold Passion, to share our passion for music. The goal is to make a top 5 (or Top 10) for whatever genre or artist you like or get creative and share a theme based music top 5. For example a bookish soundtrack, funny songs, song to listen to on a rainy day top 5.

When the Olympic Games were on TV, I wanted to do a sports top 5, with song about sports. Turns out this was really hard, the only things I came up with were the band "The Baseballs" and "Hockey. And that one song: " I don't like cricket". Apart from Hockey, these are non-Olympic sports. Then running, which is an Olympic sports, came to mind. I search in my computer and found about 88 songs that had "run" in it, or a variation on the word like: running, runaway.
The songs vary in genres so much that it made a really great top 10. So here it is!

1. Amy MacDonald ~ Run



2.Acda en de Munnik ~ Ren Lenny Ren

This when you translate run to Dutch you get ren! Which means the same. The title in this case: run Lenny run. This band is quitting, it's too bad because the are only the greatest dutch sing band ever!



3. Bruno Mars ~ Runaway baby

He's a genius!


4. Epica ~ Run For A Fall

Also a Dutch band, every time I hear this I get goosebumps.

5. John Fogerty ~ Run Through The Jungle

What's a top 10 without some classics?


6. Jay-Z, Kayne West, Rihanna ~ Run This Town Tonight

I am aware that this is another kind of running of course but I just love this song!


7. Live ~ Run To The Water

The video quality sucks but the music is great. Another one of those legendary bands!


8. Burning Spear ~ Run For Your Life

This is really relaxing!


9. The Downtown Fiction ~ I Just Wanna Run

Just found this band on my computer and I must say I really liking what I have heard so far.


10. Snow Patrol ~ Run

Let's finish this top 10 with the greatest song of all. I just can't put in words how much this song means to me and how beautiful it is!
