Favorite Things Friday

Ciao! I say that because right about now... I'm really wishing I was in Italy! 

Just wanted to let you guys know that I have three spots left for ad swapping. If you're interested, email me at alyx2011[at]gmail.com. I will give the spots to the first three people to email me. 

So. It is Friday. And just like every other Friday since the beginning of blog time (well, almost), I am here with some of my favorite things. I thought I would do something a little different, and do a music theme this week. 

Favorite Things. Music Style. 
1. Rockmyrun.com. I discovered this website about four months ago, back when they weren't charging for music. They have recently started charging, but it's great workout music for a great price. Click the pic and check it out! 

2. Walk off the Earth's cover of Somebody That I Used to Know. I know this thing has been all over blogland, but just in case you haven't been introduced to the song (I think the cover is better than the original, and don't get me started on how talented these people are), here it is. 
3. The Piano Guys and Alex Boye teaming up to perform Coldplay's Paradise (but a super awesome African version). Seriously. Hubby introduced me to this song a few weeks ago, and I play it at least once a day. 
4. This Random Cover of The One That Got Away (originally by Katy Perry). I swear it's better than the original. 
5. Culcha Candela's Wildes Ding. Yeah, it's German. Yeah it's rap and sorta techno-y. But you know what? I freakin' love it. It's got a great beat for running. Don't hate. I have an eclectic taste in music.
6. Anything by Mindy Gledhill. I discovered her... somehow. I don't actually remember. But she's amazing. The video below has my absolute favorite song of hers. The second I a) learn how to play the guitar and b) have a baby boy, I am singing this. 

I'm always looking for new tunes... What are some of your favorites? Give me some recommendations!

I <3 new tunes. I would suggest some of mine, but the music I listen to is...well...a bit harder. Not everybody likes it as much as I do. :-)

Also, I've given you an award over at my site. Happy Friday!

I am loving the new David Guetta album...songs featuring Usher, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Hudson...etc. Very fun to workout to! :) I love some of your music choices too!

The cover of Paradise gave me chills. I love it! My current obsession? Passion Pit- To Kingdom Come. I even used it as background music to my first 'video blog'. I'm not sure it even matched but hey that's where musical obsessions take you!
