Favorite running songs? (Read 885 times)


    Any Daft Punk and towards the end of a race it has to be "Prime time of my life" plus any LCD Soundsystem

    Old age is when you move from illegal to prescribed drugs.

    Not dead. Yet.

      Social Distortion - Reach for the Sky



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

        Here are a couple of my go to songs.


        Rasputin- Boney M

        Patricia the Stripper- Chris De Burgh


          And she's a DJ!



            rusty cage - soundgarden


            Classic Soundgarden!  I forgot about that one.


            Here's two that make me feel tough when I'm running, especially if I'm passing people.


            Ludacris - Move &*$#%  - "Get out the way!"

            Soul Coughing - Super Bon Bon - "Let the man go through!"


              Foo Fighters.


              Which song?


              All of them.



              Ding ding, we have a winner.


                M83 - Midnight City

                Daft Punk - Harder Better Faster Stronger (and Digital Love)

                Pearl Jam - I Got Shit; Last Exit

                Radiohead - Airbag; Jigsaw Falling Into Place

                Gaslight Anthem - American Slang

                Stars - Ageless Beauty

                Metric - Breathing Underwater

                New Pornographers - Bleeding Heart Show

                Arcade Fire - Keep the Car Running

                TV on the Radio - Staring at the Sun; Wolf Like Me

                Matt & Kim - Daylight

                Talking Heads - Once in a Lifetime

                Not dead. Yet.


                  Metric - Breathing Underwater



                  Thanks for the reminder of Metric.  It's been a long time since I've listened and they have lots of new stuff.  If you like them, you should check out  Goldfrapp and perhaps Frou Frou.

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

                    Anything by AC/DC. I like to use Thunderstruck as an opener. Shoot to Thrill is good too.


                    And while I am not in any way a Motley Crue fan, Kickstart My Heart is a great running tune.


                    EDIT: And whoever said Foo Fighters ... that was a good call.



                      some call me Tim

                        Les Savy Fav - We've Got Boxes


                        again, I sing the song, but it's frenetic enough that it's probably a good candidate for listening, too


                        "The brakes are broken but the gas works fine"

                        11/07 - Mendon Ponds Trail 50k

                        ME WEBLARG

                          For some reason I have to start with Lose Yourself, Eminem.

                          And I like to end with Holding Out For  A Hero, Bonnie Tyler.


                          In between, I switch things up all the time.  Last night I added Now That We Found Love - Heavy D.  LOVE IT!  It was a great pick-me-up in the middle.  Rockefeller Skank is another great one.
