Need tunes for running... - Page 3

How about Paul Oakenfold - Southern Sun (Tiesto Remix)

Or, a classic The Spencer Davis Group - Keep On Runnin...

Podcast, Russel Brand on BBC Radio 2 is pretty surreal and a wickedly funny comedian, tis but a suggestion. Not everyones taste...

I've noticed that I'm really pumped up while listening to Rage Against The Machine. I didn't really listen to RATM before, now I've really gotten into them.

The metal I listen to is mainly death and black, and I find those to be too chaotic to be good running music (great for lifting weights to, however). For running, I prefer bouncy accessible music that I can just mentally sing along to to pass the time. My absolute favorite song for ending my runs is Jesu - Star. Some more: Voxtrot - Wrecking Force Stars - Ageless Beauty Saxon Shore - Isolated by the Secrets of Your Fellow Men Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Upon This Tidal Wave of Young Blood The Coral - Dreaming of You

If You Really Love Me by Stevie Wonder gives me a boost. I also like uptempo and agresive Hip Hop or Jamaican songs.

Get the tiesto album - Parade of Athletes. Think about the fact that he was spinning during the olympic opening ceremony. Pretend you're running for gold. Be awesome.

My current running playlist looks something like...

Eye of the Tiger
Gonna Fly Now (Rocky Theme)
Jukebox Hero (Foreigner)
Don't Stop Me Now (Queen)
Woman (Wolfmother)
Separate Ways (Journey)
You Are the Best (yes, from The Karate Kid)
Explosive (Bond)
4th Movement of the New World Symphony (Dvorak)
Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds (Beatles)
Festivo (Zatoichi soundtrack)

If you're not constantly listening to songs telling you how fucking awesome you are, you'll never be running hard enough.

"I Get Wet" by Andrew WK all the way. The whole album works from front to back. You'll forget that you even have a fast-forward button. Actually, do people still say "fast-forward" with Ipod's and such? Is there a new phrase for it? Typing that just made me realize how dated it is.

+ 1 to cpmac7's suggestion of the Roots,

plus David Brubeck, DJ Rap, Bruce, etc.

My mix starts w/ the theme from the Sopranos.

Rocky theme songs.

Anything high energy. Do some stream rips off the trance channels in

i suggest running, and exercising in general, without music.

System of the Down tends to work for me. High energy. Shorter songs. Good for intervals.

I checked out podrunner last week. Not bad for free actually - but it's mostly "underground" style DJ tracks, not real songs. I think that's good for some people but I just need a bit more "content" to keep me engaged.... These days at the gym I'm really into techno and techno/rock and stuff like that, but the kind with vocals, real songs -- try searching for these songs:

Thomas Falke "Revolution On The Dance Floor"
Groove Cutter "My Shooter"
Control One "Just A Little Bit"
Ian Carey "Redlight"
Kevin Weg "Dead Radio"

I don't usually go for techno but these are sort of like a wierd crossover between rock and techno/trance.

Most of these I found at this itunes page --

How about Acid8000 by Fatboy Slim - see this Lance Armstrong video for a feel of how it works with CV!
