Your Running Playlist, Part 5

Few things have the healing power of music.  So after a very tough week, for runners and non-runners alike, here’s a slice of  Britpop to pick up your spirits.  Take it out for a drive this weekend – and wear a Boston race shirt if you’ve got one.

It’s a mix of adrenaline and shimmering beauty.  The singer, Florence Welch, reminds me a bit of Adele.

I’ve been running with it for a couple of days now.  It helps me channel both my anger and my sorrow.  When the drums kick in, fury explodes from my feet.  When it turns quiet, my heart drops into my stomach and wails.

The lyrics also seem oddly appropriate, given the awfulness that went down in Boston:

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart
