Playlist enhancer: The Police "I Can't Stand Losing You"

I forced myself recently to run to something differently. Too often I get caught up with one or two artists and I'd been listening to the same stuff over and over. Now, that wasn't a bad thing per se but I felt that I was going to burn those songs out and then I'd really mess things up for myself.

I'm not the kind of person who can listen to the same song 1,000 times and not get tired of it, and that's true with some very rare exceptions.

So I started rifling through some of Mrs. LB's music and came across The Police. It's not that I disliked them, but I just never really took the time to listen their music, apart from the well-known popular releases. Actually, their Greatest Hits album is quite good.

This song is probably my favorite, and I've ran to it now many times. It's quite enjoyable, relaxing but not too slow and upbeat enough to help me keep going. I'd definitely recommend The Police... although, the one song I always skip is Every Breath You Take since I heard that song for the 1,000th time quite a long time ago.

Oooo...this is a good one, I may have to add it to next month's playlist.
I also like "Everything Little Thing She Does is Magic."

I have to mix up my tunes about once a week, even the best songs get old :) You always have some great picks!

It's been a long time since I've heard that one! I like the reggae-ish beat.

My current favorite "pick up the pace" tune is The Pretender by the Foo Fighters. I just have to be careful when I listen to it while driving because it makes me want to drive faster, too!
