Best Running Song for May!

Wow, what a slacker I am. Not getting the Best Running Song of the Month out until the 8th day of the month? Come on!

All right, so here it is. We're going back up to Canada for this one, and we've got a first this month: a female vocalist!

May's song is performed by Metric, with "Gold Guns Girls." Vocalist Emily Haines is a little soft and breathy for me, but man, you can't deny the driving beat behind this one - just a great song to slap down the miles. And a great bonus: they spend the entire video...wait for it...running! Syncronicity.

I don't know what it is about the Great White North - they just put out a lot of good bands up there. Almost makes me forgive them for Nickelback.
