Perfect (But Lesser Known) Songs that get your Ipod Poppin! (Read 839 times)

    Frankie Smith - Double Dutch Bus

     

    This song caused me to turn a 3 mile easy run into a tempo.  :-|

     

    Love that song.  It is one of the best skating songs around.  Can you say Backwards skate!   I'm not sure how I would feel about running to it though...Undecided

    "Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great."  John D. Rockefeller

      Pretty much the entirety of Fang Island's first album (self-titled) is ridiculously uplifting anthem rock. This one in particular is my regular pre-5k jam... many PRs have been forged by the endless repetition of this song on the way to the race:

       

      Welcome Wagon

       

      This one is pretty great, too, and was my introduction to the band:

      1/24 - Beast of Burden 50

        2 of my favorite race songs come from a documentary movie about underprivileged kids in a high school cooking program in Philadelphia- PressureCooker... Great movie. Great soundtrack

         

        Lil Mama - Lipgloss.  Not the kinda music i ever listen to, but this song makes me hustle

        Going On- Gnarls Barkley.  Perfect running tune.

          I am strict on the beat of the songs. They have to match my running. Here are a few songs that have my beat: http://toprunnersreview.com/#/4-points-of-proper-running/

                Not sure if these are "lesser known," but they are 30 years old so maybe off the radar for some:

                 

                Blondie: One Way or Another

                A-ha: Take on Me

                Van Halen: anything except the slower ballads

                  Just had time to check the last reply here at the moment, but "Take on Me" by Aha has been in my top-5 all time.  Positive song.

                   

                  Another song same era I put right next to it:  "Ain't nuthin gonna Break My Stride" by Matt Wilder.

                   

                  Now the Video for this?  A "Solid Gold" video, certainly indicative of the times and ridiculous on every level !  But....  Just close yer eyes and listen to the song instead, :-)

                      I love it!  (the video).  We used to watch that show when I was a kid - my sister's goal in life for a while was to be a "solid gold dancer".
