Best Running Song for May - Tiesto vs. Diplo - C'mon!

I'm not usually big into dance music, but let me tell you, this song right here was the song from my iPod playlist that got me going during the Corvallis Half. There's just amazing energy in this song. It's "C'Mon" by Tiesto vs. Diplo (featuring Busta Rhymes). I know, right?

Good dance moves in this video, although the whole snake thing at the end is just...odd.

I think my favorite thing about this song, besides the fact that Diplo takes his DJ name from a dinosaur (Diplodocus), is that Busta Rhymes is still out there, well...busting rhymes. I mean, this guy has got to be up there in years. I remember him from my UW days with Tribe Called Quest and "Scenario." Another great song to run to, by the way. Man, that was way back in 1991. Damn, me and Busta are old...

Anyway, old school coming at you!

Plus, check out Spike Lee at the 1:18 mark. It's gotta be the shoes, Mike!
