Running Playlists

One of the most awesome features I like about my iPod is that I can craft a playlist that has precise timing. I have two playlists for my morning, pre-work runs, one at 20 minutes and a 30 minutes, depending on how much time I give myself in the AM. I was thinking of making a new playlist and I wanted to get peoples' suggestions. Leave them in the comments, please. Here's what I currently have:

Playlist 1 (20 Mins)
Fireworks, "Show Me Your Vanishing Act One More Time"
Four Year Strong, "Heroes Get Remembered, Legends Never Die"
Brand New, "The Shower Scene"
Big Pun feat. Fat Joe, "Twinz"
Comadre, "I Think We're Alone Now"
Broadway Calls, "Get at Me"
Capone and Noreaga, "TONY"

Playlist 2 (30 Mins)
None More Black, "Oh, There's Legwork"
Modern Life is War, "D.E.A.D.R.A.M.O.N.E.S."
The Lawrence Arms, "Great Lakes/Great Escape"
Shook Ones, "Order Form"
American Nightmare, "am/pm"
Kid Dynamite, "Heart a Tact"
Silverstein, "Vices"
The Bled, "Dale Earnhardt's Seatbelt"
Hour of the Wolf, "Taking Out the Trash"
Crime in Stereo, "I Stole This for You"

HxC Kind of Summer

I don't know why, but I got bit by the hardcore bug again. I'm working on doing songs with my long dormant Blown to Eliot Smithereens project and I've listened to the new Comadre records three times in a row today. At some point I put on "Takin' it Ova!" the record by the International Superheroes of Hardcore (aka New Found Glory).

Surprisingly, the album was much better than I remembered and I kind of wished that more hardcore bands were this fun. Oh well.

International Superheroes of Hardcore, "ISHC Theme Song/Back to the Future"

Comadre, "New Noise (Refused cover)"
