    I know some of you are completely against running with music, but I can't imagine NOT running with it (errr, double negative.  Nails on this English teacher's chalkboard)

     

    What are some of your favorite additions to your playlist?

     

    Mine current favs:

    Sweet Child O' Mine-Guns N Roses

    We are Never, ever getting back together-Taylor Swift

    Forget you-Cee Lo

    I Gotta Feeling-Black eyed Peas

     

    And go!

    I can and I will!

    Better I Leave


      Here's a few that "gets me moving"...

       

      Highway Star - Deep Purple

      China Grove - Doobie Brothers

      Red - Sammy Hagar

      Blue Highway - Billy Idol

      Love Removal Machine - The Cult

      Big Machine - Velvet Revolver

        FYI, there's an old thread on favorite running songs if you're interested.  Since my last post there, I've discovered a few others...

         

        Meet Me Halfway - Black Eyed Peas

        Why Am I the One - Fun.

        Back in Time - Pitbull

        Everybody Talks - Neon Trees

        Evacuate the Dancefloor - Cascada

        You're too strong not to keep on keepin' on. - The Pips
        Yes, I am! - Gladys Knight

          Not getting into the songs discussion but you know these two sentences have different meanings:

           

          I can imagine running with music.

          I can't imagine not running with music.

           

          English is a little different from math.

           

          For the record, I have difficulty imagining running with music, except what my brain provides.

          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

            English is a little different from math.

             

            In the immortal words of Barbie: "math class is tough, let's go shopping!" Smile

              Pearl Jam - Deep

               

              I'll admit to air drumming at times. I'm sure people in my neighborhood think I'm insane.

                I love this song towards the end of a long run:

                 

                Johnny Cash - Ain't No Grave

                  Thanks!  I did search but apparently not thoroughly enough!

                  Great additions.

                  I can and I will!


                  Not dead. Yet.

                    I've been heavy into Kraftwerk recently.  Great energy and focus music.

                     

                    Autobahn, Europe Endless, Tour de France...

                     

                    Have yet to try on Spiritualized while running but I'll bet it will work great.  Laser guided Melodies is the bomb.

                    How can we know our limits if we don't test them?

                      machine gun blues - social distortion

                          Some songs that get me moving:

                           

                          W.A.S.P. - The Last Command

                          3 Doors Down - It's Not My Time

                          Anthrax - Got the Time

                          Disturbed - Indestructible

                          Iron Maiden - The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner

                          arca


                            No one knows - Queens of the Stone Age

                            Breathe - The Prodigy

                            True Faith - New Order

                            Energy 52 - Cafe del Mar

                             

                             

                            Reckon those choices probably mark me down as a Brit of a certain age!

                              I don't know about listening, but when I'm having a particularly good long run occasionally I'll sing. (I'm sure the people along my running routes think I'm completely sane Smile ) My current favorite for this is 'Grace Under Pressure' by Elbow, especially because it's a repeated anthem that I can sing for as long as I choose.

                                Forgot another great one;

                                try it as you attack a hill..
