Sweatin' to the Grammys

By Ya'akov (see more below)
Have a playlist that's in desperate need of some updating? I do. I've had the same hits rotating through my run since 2006. Not to get too detail-heavy, but I blame it on my 1 GB ipod (too small for my shuffling, moody fingers) and my fear of losing the removed songs for good because I've forgotten where the originals are stored. But after tuning into Sunday's Grammys awards, I was ready to put all that aside. Usually, I'm not that inspired by these music awards, but this year I turned out to be more a fan of the nominees and award winners than I originally thought.

Mumford & Sons, Arcade Fire, Bob Dylan--and that was only five minutes of the program. For a playlist to power me through my next long run or the upcoming Talons Challenge, where I'll be skiing 13 bump runs at Beaver Creek all in a day's work and likely consecutive, I came up with this list of Grammy hits for Only problem is after I published it I realized I left off three hits I'd want to listen to: Don't Stop Til You Get Enough by Michael Jackson, Dog Days Are Over by Florence and The Machine, and Love the Way You Lie by Eminem with Rihanna.

What Grammy hits would you want on your playlist?
