In search of my power song

In search of my power song

This weekend I get my Nike+ shoe insert and will be able to use it with my iPod Nano to track my runs.  I got the new Nano just so I could do this and am super excited, after being totally bummed that Nike+ wont work with the iPhone 3G.

But one question is yet to be decided: What is my power song?

As I understand it, when I am on the final stretch the Nike+ will tell the Nano to play my power song, catapulting me through to a glorious finish.  Finding the one song that will inspire me to do my best, to push a little harder and shave a few more seconds off my time is proving tough.

My current favorite warm up song is “Hold my Hand” by Hootie and the Blowfish.  That may sound cheesy, but the lyrics even say “I wanna run with you.”  It’s about love and energy and it does make me want to run, but I don’t think it is my power song.

Regulars in my playlist include The White Stripes, The New Pornographers and Oasis and Kings of Leon.  I like to mix Rilo Kelly and the Indigo Girls in, too.  I guess Kings of Leon is the forerunner, but I am still unsure.

I think this calls for some time on iTunes.  Please email me your suggestions!
