Best Running Song Ever?

Got your iPod strapped on? Ready to go for a long run? Got the Nike+ hooked up so your Nike+ mini-me can do the Smurf, the Popeye, and the Jerry Lewis?

Yes, yes, and yes?

Well, then get onto iTunes and grab this oldie, but very goodie. It's my current favorite to run to...from about 2500 songs on the ol' MacBook...and it never fails to deliver.

"I Confess" from The English Beat. Medium-fast Ska beat with horns and piano backing and absolutely awesome Dave Wakeling vocals. It just doesn't get any better than that. Ah, the '80's, bad in so, so many ways, but the absolute high point for Ska music.

Enjoy your run.

Holy Cheese! You can see The English Beat for free at Del Mar...sort of like the time we saw the Romantics after the Mariners, actually it's nothing like that - the English Beat are actually good...and it wouldn't be in the Kingdome!
