RUNNING MUSIC: My Favorite SKA Song . . . Superman, Goldfinger

My Leadville Trail 100 Theme Song!
OK, this is my all time favorite SKA song to run with.  It really really gets me pumped.  It is only about 100 beats per minute, but I still run faster when I hear it. I do not know how many times it is on my playlist, but not enough. On top of being a fast fun beat,  the lyrics are so appropriate for my Leadville theme song and me.   ‘so here I am looking older all the time growing older all the time feeling younger in my mind’ ~Cornell

Goldfinger - Superman lyrics
So here I am
doing everything I can
holding on to what I am
pretending I'm a superman

I'm trying to keep
the ground on my feet
it seems the world's
falling down around me
the nights are all long
I'm singing this song
to try and make the answers
more than maybe

and I'm so confused
about what to do
sometimes I want
to throw it all away
‘so here I am
looking older all the time
growing older all the time
feeling younger in my mind’
I'm trying to sleep
I lost count of the sheep
my mind is racing faster
every minute
what could I do more
yeah I'm really not sure
I know I'm running circles
but I can't quit
and I'm so confused
about what to do
sometimes I want to
throw it all away
controlling everything in site

I'm feeling weak
I don't feel right
you're telling me
I have to change
telling me to act my age
but if all that I can do
is just sit and watch time go
then I'll have to say good bye
life's too short to watch it fly
watch it fly
