As someone who is interested in music, I feel as though I'm pretty tapped into the current trends. I realized today that this is not the case when it comes to pop/dance music. I do tend to lean toward alternative picks when I make suggestions, but I must say, there is nothing like fighting my way up a hill or to a finish line with a song like 'Dynamite' by Taio Cruz blasting in my ear. I had heard a couple songs in the last week that I thought would be good ones for running and I played them for the girls' cross country team that I coach at the end of their practice this morning. As we were stretching, I was hearing, "oh, I remember this, I used to love this one." Ok, so, I'm a few months behind in the pop world, which might have something to do with my age. However, these songs, even if they are "old", still got everybody fired up and I was seeing some head shaking and lip-synching as I looked around the circle. I guess the bottom line is, songs like these are timeless and will never fail to shake up the scene.
