>Running 101>Perfect (But Lesser Known) Songs that get your Ipod Poppin!
I don't have an Ipod anymore or listen to music while running unless it's on the house speakers at the Rec center, but I think I could put KD Lang's version of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah on a loop and run a marathon to it, and pretty sure I'd run a PR.

Josh WInk - Higher State of Conscisouness (Tweekin' Acid Funk Remix)
I bought my nephew an elephant for his room. He said, "Thanks". I said, "Don't mention it".
Conquest of Paradise - Vangelis
I never run with music, but I listen to this sometimes before a run. Someday, I'll be standing at the start of UTMB and won't have to hit play, it will already be blasted.
Marathon: 2:52 (CIM 2012) - Half: 1:22 (Berkeley 2013)

Holy crap, Cecil and Jack Frost, I can't believe it. I hadn't visited this thread in weeks, but in the past couple days, I have been listening to KD Lang, Leonard Cohen, and my favorite of all time, Vangelis. I honestly didn't think there were more than three folks on the entire earth who listened to any of those artists anymore.
I listen to Leonard Cohen on long runs, and I listen to some Vangelis as well. ("Direct" and "Oceanic" albums.) Conquest of Paradise one of my favorites, but another great song from the 1492 album:
Light and shadow. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xPPyCE0-6w
Also on a similar line, most folks may have not heard of the group "Moodswings" from about 1991, but if not, many great songs by them on this album. Some faster paced, some more like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CdnrmHzHMo&list=PLD128810C9CF89052

My favourite song that perks me up a bit when I'm out running with my ipod: Subterranean Homesick Blues by Bob Dylan, timeless classic.
My Body by Volbeat
The chorus is stuck in my head... it may have nothing to do with running, but sounds perfect for a marathon:
My body tells me no
but I won't quit
'cause I want more x2
RHCP version worth checking out too
