Perfect (But Lesser Known) Songs that get your Ipod Poppin! (Read 612 times)


Not dead. Yet.

    Animal Liberation Orchestra - Speed of Dreams

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

    Andy X


       

      RHCP version worth checking out too 

       

      Great version, thanks Mito!

        I bought my nephew an elephant for his room. He said, "Thanks". I said, "Don't mention it".


        Cool Jump Suit

          I didn't read through the whole thread, but I like Temptation (New Order) - Song Here

           

           

          I also like Toad the Wet Sprocket - Nanci    ......it's a fun little ditty.

          So bittersweet
          This tragedy
          Won't ask for absolution;
          This melody
          Inside of me
          Still searches for solution;
          A twist of faith
          A change of heart 
          Cures my infatuation;
          A broken heart 
          Provides the spark 
          For my determination.

            "Pressure" by Rains

             

            "Get Through This" by Art of Dying

             

            "Strike Back" by We As Human

             

            "One for the Money" Escape the Fate - This one is probably my favorite song to run to right now

             

            I didn't read through every post, but thought I would add a few of my favorites right now that aren't "common" running songs

              I bought my nephew an elephant for his room. He said, "Thanks". I said, "Don't mention it".

                    Suntoucher by Groove Armada.  "Purple Haze" by Groove Armada is pretty good too.

                    Ninth Wonder by Digable Planets: "68 inches above sea level/93 million miles above these devils" always gives me a second wind.

                    Get Innocuous by LCD Soundsystem

                     

                    A little less electronic:

                    Take it So Hard by Keith Richards

                      You got a nice list there. LCD Soundsystem and Bloc Party always always good. Just been revisiting Bloc Party recently while running on the treadmill and was tempted to post it here. So I will, Bloc Party - Silent Alarm. The whole album, all the way through, and then again if you've got the time. Fun, fun album (and especially so if you like to air drum while running).

                       

                      (also great to see Yes on your list! and Jesus and Mary Chain's Automatic!)

                        "Slow Cheetah" by Red Hot Chili Peppers is a perfect long run tune.

                         

                        And "I'm Comin" by Will Smith always gets me fired up before a race or big quality workout.

                         

                        OK, one more deep cut: "Reach the Beach" by The Fixx.

                          hardly "lesser known", but one that never fails to entertain:

                           

                          fatboy slim - weapon of choice

                          I bought my nephew an elephant for his room. He said, "Thanks". I said, "Don't mention it".

                            always perfect for the end of a run, Mission of Burma - That's How I Escaped My Certain Fate

                              Boris - Smile is also a fantastic album. Buzz-in gets me every time...   http://youtu.be/rpNGqkcBiew

                                I rarely listen to music when I run, but one song I love is "Dead but Rising" by Volbeat.
