      You must be about 20? My 20 yo nephew loves most of your choices. I like Well Thought Out Twinkles by Silver Sun Pick Ups and Chop Suey!

        Uh no, I'm 31.  I just like heavy music and most of these bands are from the 90s or older when I was 20...I guess your nephew has good taste in music.

         

        The question was about running music, you would think I was older if you asked about my general tastes as you would find classic rock dominates that list, topped out by the Beatles, Johnny Cash, Led Zeppelin, Journey, etc, etc...I just like higher tempo and harder rock while I run.

        The Trial of Miles, Miles of Trials

          Country Bone:

          1. Ramblin Fever ~ Merle Haggard

          2. Folsum Prison Blues ~ Johnny Cash

          3. I’ve got a Tiger by the Tail ~ Buck Owens

          4. White Lightning ~ George Jones

          5. Rough and Rowdy Days ~ Waylon Jennings

          6. Heartaches by the Numbers ~ Ray Price

          7. My Heart Skips a Beat ~ Dwight Yoakum (originally Buck Owens)

          8. Miles and Miles of Texas ~ Asleep at the Wheel

          9. Pissin’ in the Wind ~ Jerry Jeff Walker

          10. Rural Route ~ Chris Knight Bonus Track

          11. Beautiful Day ~ Charlie Robison

           

          These are songs that both make me want to grab a girl and scoot around a dance floor as well as drink some good beer at a bar and when those are not the best options I throw on some shoes and get up the road. I very rarely listen to music while running but these type of songs force me to get out and get some up tempo running under my belt. They are the songs that cause me to just enjoy the day and weather and mood. That is why I threw in the bonus track from Charlie Robison. All of these songs have a good meaning for me and remind me of my youth and sitting on the porch with my pops and his friends listening to life experiences. That is the root of me amidst the complex diverse person I have grown to be.

              I generally like heavier music when I'm running.  Only use the mp3 player on the treadmill.  Here's a sampling.  Helmet is great to listen to if you're into heavier stuff because the beat is always good to match...

               

              1) Helmet - Biscuits for Smut

              2) Helmet - Renovation

              3) Helmet - Harmless (this one makes me speed up the treadmill)

              4) Pennywise - Faith & Hope

              5) Pennywise - We'll Never Know

              6) Megadeth - A Tout Le Monde

              7) Pearl Jam - Severed Hand

              8) Foo Fighters - Everlong

              9) Audioslave - Cochise

              10) The Crystal Method - Broken Glass

              11) The Crystal Method - Weapons of Mass Distortion

              12) The Headstones - Tweeter And The Monkey Man

              13) I Mother Earth - Production

              14) Queens Of The Stone Age - Regular John

                Lately I've been listening to Girltalk's All Day.  72 minutes of pure upbeat music sampling!


                A Dance with Monkeys

                  I like songs about oobleck.

                     

                     

                    Nice to see Cocteau Twins...

                     

                     

                     

                     

                    Hear, hear!

                     

                    While I never listen to music during a race or a workout, I've listened to a lot of pre-race music, and I changed my ways when I was still a young buck.  I used to listen to the "pump-up" music;  the hard rock, the grungy stuff, and the rap stuff (not the crappy hip-hop on the radio today--I'm talking about the stuff that I wouldn't have wanted the coaches to hear). 

                     

                    After my freshmen year of XC, I realized that I didn't want to go into a race all jacked up and ready to explode when the gun went off.  So, I turned to something to relax me:  the Cocteau Twins.  Back then, I was a poor college student and all I had was a tape player with Milk and Kisses and Four Calendar Cafe on a two-sided tape.  I would listen to that over and over and over again.  (My tape player was so advanced at that time that it had a continuous play function, so I never had to turn it over. Roll eyes)  In those few years at college, cd players had become all the rage, but I never gave up my little tape player until I was done running there. 

                     

                    I would spend hours on the bus listening to that music while on the way to our meets.  And after we arrived, I would listen to it for a while, go on a warmup.  After the warmup, I would listen to their soothing sounds again while I was stretching and waiting for "go" time.

                     

                    I don't think anyone had any idea what I was listening to at the time.  It's probably not typical pre-race music.  But I won't forget the time I was running the steeplechase at our National meet.  I was so nervous that, during the warmup, my legs felt like jelly.  I could barely get my legs to move and hold me up.  I don't know how I made through those few miles--and I'll bet I was running 8 minute pace.  When I got back to our corral area and slipped on those headphones and pressed play, I was transported to another place:  a happy place, a calm place, a place of routine.  It was a place where nervousness was just part of the equation--expected and welcomed.

                     

                    I've made the leap in technology to mp.3s now (that's still "in", right?), but those songs I listen to will never change. 

                     

                    When I go out for a run in the fall and white clouds dot the sunny, blue sky, the leaves are all different colors, and  there's a little crisp quality to the air, I know it's a cross country day.  I hear those songs in my mind, and I feel that little knot in my stomach until I tell myself, "It's just an easy run today; enjoy it".

                     

                    When I go out for a run in the spring and white clouds dot the sunny, blue sky, the  sweet smell of blooming crabapple trees travels up to my nose, and the sun warms my face, I know it's a track day.  I hear those songs in my mind, and I feel that little knot in my stomach until I tell myself, "It's just an easy run today; enjoy it."

                    There was a point in my life when I ran. Now, I just run.

                     

                    Well, fuckers

                    He still stands

                      Bumping to share some of the new purchases that got me through this training cycle:

                      One Moment in Time - Whitney Houston

                      Run the mile you are in.

                        I can't play these songs on an easy run, because once this list plays, I get after it every time.

                            Hey! That's my own personal "theme" song...(my last name is pronounced "bawn"). Pretty obscure there, didn't think anyone else even owned a soul coughing album.

                                Heh, I used to hang a bit with Mike's brother Kevin.  His mom is Mrs. Cleaver -- you should have heard her talk about SC's video on MTV.  She knew play-times and other stats only a groupie would know.  It was pretty hilarious.

                                 

                                Though, for my money: "True Dreams of Wichita" is the real deal.  Or just about anything on Ruby Vroom.
