Running Tunes Thursday

New Feature perhaps?!


Alternate title for this particular post would be: 

Why Build me Up Buttercup is one of the best songs to run to.

It is a little wordy though…so perhaps we will continue with this as a weekly feature…

I know I’m always on the look out (or in this case, ear out) for new tunes that can motivate and keep my feet going.

If you’re unfamiliar with The Foundations song from the 60’s, Build me Up Buttercup, check out the video below.

So why is it such a good song to run to?

  1. It’s fun.  You can’t deny this catchy tune is one to make you smile.
  2. It has an echo….echo…echo….By this I mean that they say part of the words and the back ground singers repeat it.  SO…why is this a good thing?  Well, first if you don’t know all the words, you can chose to sing the echo.  If you happen to have a running partner with you, you can split it up and one can take the lead while the other sings the echo.  This would also work in a group run situation too.
  3. Build Me Up Buttercup…It is a motivator in the lyrics alone!
  4. You can keep this one going over and over and over and over and over …you get what I mean.  The song fades so there really isn’t a hard stop here.  Put on repeat and keep it going!


We would love to hear some of your fave running/hiking/walking/workout/biking tunes to feature on our Running Tunes Thursday!
