Playlist enhancer: Flogging Molly's "Requiem for a dying song"

I think this is my new favorite song to run to. I don't know though, since I've only run to it once. Earlier today, I fired up Flogging Molly's newest CD "Float" on my iPod and ran to it. This song was song number one, and I usually don't care for hearing the best song or a song I really enjoy right off the bat because the rest of the run can be a letdown but this was different. It's Flogging Molly, after all.

Anyway, this song is my kind of running song. It's upbeat but not a dance song. It's not light at all but it doesn't make me want to tear across the sidewalk (or treadmill) when I hear it. And I'm guessing it would go well with a lot of different types of music from lots of different types of bands.

Here's the song, not a video but just the music.

It's funny what makes us want to "tear up" the road (or treadmill). For me it use to be Eminem's Lose Yourself - now I love hearing the The Black Eyed Peas, Pump It. Funny thing, I don't really like either of those "types" of music, but it just works.
