In Case of Emergency Hit Play - Part 1

This series of posts was inspired by a conversation we had on the way back from the Pocatello 50 held over Memorial weekend.  It started with the question: "what would go on your emergency playlist?".  Assume for a minute you are cooked.  Tired to the core and feel like taking a nap on the side of the trail.  It could be during a training run, a race, or just simply some point when you're dragging ass.  What would you listen to finish off those last few miles?

Each of the MRC submitted 5 songs that should work better than a defibrillator for those times when each of us just can't get going.  Over the course of the next week or so I'll post a new playlist from each of us, but I won't tell you which playlist goes with which one us.  Leave a comment with your guess or just have a listen to something you may not have heard.  Valid guesses would be: Christian, Erik, Greg, Jay, Peter and Rich.

*Note: if your using a feed reader to view this you will not be able to see the music player in each post.

Nanci Griffith - Speed Of The Sound Of Loneliness

Van Morrison - Brown Eyed Girl

The Direction - Patchwork Me

Mary Chapin Carpenter - Shut Up and Kiss Me

Lila Downs - Tirineni Tsitski

Happy listening!

Speed of the Sound of Loneliness has always been a favorite. I'd make a guess on the playlist, but I think I already have too much insight. I look forward to listening to the next one.
