Perfect (But Lesser Known) Songs that get your Ipod Poppin! (Read 606 times)

    Alot of folks have similar music on their Ipods to motivate them when they run (Black Eyed Peas and a bunch of other very well known groups), but if you will, please think of lesser known songs that you find superb.  IE.  Names of songs that you cannot live without on your Ipod, but yet those song names probably have not been heard of by most folks.

     

    (Posting a youtube link to a song or two might be helpful for a quick listen).    I'll start with a couple:  These really get me moving when I am on a long run:

     

    Vangelis - Anthem  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_HxuESGkqA

     

    Donna Summer - I feel Love  (You know the song, sure, but have you heard this wonderful REMIX?!)  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGsc3MeTUe0

          I also like anything by Moby, but he's fairly mainstream: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOQDCppovR4

           

          I don't usually listen to stuff that's really "poppin" I guess. lol

            I find this track always makes me feel more upbeat. Black Betty by Spiderbait. It's a great version, well I think so anyway.

              day after day sameness

                Dull Knife - Matt Mays

                Tougher than the Rest  - Springsteen.  (I listen to this before most races so that it's my race earwig) (Actually I prefer the version by Matt Mays, but can't find a link to it)

                I've done my best to live the right way; I get up every morning and go to work each day...

                  I always post this song when this comes up...My Coco by stellastarr*. It starts slow but really builds and the end is great for sprints.

                          Kind of makes me think of this piece of Krautrock: Gammy Ray

                            There is something about your term "earwig" versus "earworm" that is very unsettling to me!!! Ewwwww!

                              Thanks for the link!  That song - in turn - brought to mind this well-known monster.
