Happy Tuesday!  I hope your week is starting out nicely!

For this month’s Tunes Tuesday, Kim from Kooky Runner, Steff from Run Steff Run, and I are sharing some more of our favorite pump up jams!  Since we’re a few weeks from the spring season, I thought I’d focus on songs with that theme!  And since the snowstorms just keep coming, I need this music now more than ever!

Remember – Tunes Tuesday is now taking place on the first Tuesday of every month – we hope you join us!

And in case you missed it – here are my previous monthly playlists:

Tunes Tuesday: Pump Up Jams for Spring

Once again I’m a little late to the party for Tunes Tuesday – forgive me!  I found this month’s theme to be pretty challenging.  Since the start of spring is just a couple of weeks away, I thought it would be great to feature some tunes that really excite me for the season!  But who knew that there are hardly any upbeat songs that are about the spring?  So, I had to get a little bit more creative with my choices.

As always, my Pump Up Jams are added to my ongoing Spotify playlist, featured below.  Feel free to follow me or add some songs to your own running playlist!

Featured Songs of Spring:

It's Tunes Tuesday and I'm sharing some of my favorite songs that remind me of spring! Check out more at!


Dog Days Are Over – Florence + The Machine:  This song reminds me that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and spring will be here soon!

Mr. Brightside – The Killers:  I really enjoyed The Killers back in the day.  This is one of my jams for sure!

Walking on Sunshine – Jennifer Lopez:  J-Lo is well known for her dance music, but this is one of those under the radar tunes from back in the day!

Pocketful of Sunshine – Natasha Bedingfield:  This is a great song by a great singer!  Where is Natasha these days??

Sunshine – Rye Rye ft. M.I.A.:  It’s a little different and the video is a lot of fun!

Feel Again – OneRepublic:  They’ve been putting out some feel-good music for a while.  I need to get back into this band!

Steal My Sunshine – Len:  One of those one-hit wonders you forgot about!

Miami (Miami Mix) – Will Smith:  I would really like a trip to Miami, sooner rather than later haha!  The Remix version is pretty fun and I hadn’t heard it in ages!

Soak Up the Sun – Sheryl Crow:  Another classic jam, it might be the only Sheryl Crow song I know, lol!

Walkin’ On the Sun – Smash Mouth:  This was my favorite Smash Mouth song back in the day, it really gives me good vibes when I listen to it!

Ray of Light – Madonna:  First off, this album is a classic!  I need to listen to the whole thing again.  But this is definitely one of my favorites!

Walking on Sunshine – Katrina & The Waves:  Much credit to these ladies for creating such a classic song!

Here Comes the Sun – The Beatles:  I have had this song in my head for days now!
