You know, if I am going to be honest, this song is way up my “most played” on my itunes. True. Like that old Sesame Street game, “which one of these things does not look like the other” this song sits way up top with The Flaming Lips, Fugazi, John Coltrane, & DJ Shadow. Perhaps it is because I worked as a high school teacher just outside of D.C. years ago and was exposed to “Go-Go”, or perhaps (now as a resident of the northeast) on those winter days when I was forced to run inside on a treadmill, it was this song, more than any other, that got me to run that extra mile.
P.S.- I am dragging my fat ass through the Providence Marathon this Sunday.
Thank you Amerie.
