What’s on my running playlist? TEXAS HOLD ‘EM by Beyoncé


I haven’t yet started line-dancing to this smashing song, like so many on Instagram.


I have put this song on my running playlist, and on my grandly-style “race playlist” (says the woman who cancelled her 2 big races this winter… 😛 ) and also on my workout playlist.

So yes indeed, I like “Texas hold ‘em” a lot.

Thanks to Wikipedia, I’ve learned that Texas hold ‘em “is one of the most popular variants of the card game of poker.”

That I did not know. Doesn’t honestly make me interpret the catchy lyrics any differently, but knowledge is power, they say, and I now know something new.

I’m a simple ol’ soul and like jolly music that makes me feel upbeat & maybe move a little faster – as Beyoncé definitely did this morning, in the final 1/2km of my run.

The BPM for this song is (the BPM are??) 110 and…

…apparently this is a perfect rhythm for performing CPR. Who knew?

An all-round great song 🙂
