When I saw that this week's Thursday Playlist theme was Local Flavor I got all excited.
You might not think of my home state of Pennsylvania as a hot bed of musical creativity, but a quick google search would prove you wrong.
Narrowing the selection down to just three playlist-worthy selections wasn't easy, but I did it. Just for you. Oh, and for my friend Pavement Runner, the mastermind behind the Thursday Playlist. I totally blew him off last week and promised I'd give him some tunes. When you're finished here, head on over to his blog for more tunes!
Song: Send Me On My Way
Artist: Rusted Root
Side Note: Rusted Root hails from Pittsburgh PA where I will be running the Color Me Rad 5K next weekend. I wonder if they'll come run with me?
Quotable: "I May Tell You to Run"
(see? It's a running song!)
Song: Drive By
Side Note: Lead singer Pat Monahan is from Erie, PA and so am I. No, I don't know him.
Quotable: When you move me everything is groovy.
Something to Consider
Artist: Taylor Swift
Side Note: Katie & Mandy are so thrilled that I can use Taylor in my Thursday Playlist.
Although she doesn't live here anymore, Taylor is originally a Pennsylvania girl.
Just one more reason to love her.
Quotable: Well, you can take me down with one single blow
But you don't know what you don't know
