Best Running Song for August - Matt and Kim - Let's Go
All of the sudden, there are so many good running songs out there, I'm having trouble choosing! I had to go on a mini-spending spree at iTunes to stock up the iPod. And now I'm running fast again!
So, for the second time, we're taking a song from the band that gets more from drums and keyboards than should be possible: Matt and Kim.
Their new song is called "Let's Go" and the very cool video stars basketball super-skilled superstar Pat the Roc.
This song is so bouncy and peppy and happy, you can't help but speed up your run with a smile on your face.
In fact, these guys only make happy running songs. Check out "Yea Yeah," where Matt and Kim get attacked by guys in a pizza suit, a banana suit and a taco suit. Yeah, really.
Oh and don't forget "Lessons Learned," where Matt and Kim get naked in Times Square.
Again, yeah really.
Rock that run!
