    Top 3 Running songs

    "Jigsaw Falling into Place"-- Radiohead

    "Crazy Little Thing Called Love"-- Queen

    "Twilight Zone"-- Golden Earring


    Honorable Mention to... "Woke Up this Morning"-- Alabama 3. Yes, it is the theme song from the Sopranos. It's the first song in my race playlist. The tempo is perfect for keeping me from starting out too fast.

    and to "Do You Love Me"-- Guster. It's such a happy song! It's always in my long slow run playlist.


    ORcoastrunner... I totally agree with Florence & the Machine's "Dog Days are Over!" That's one of my "get pumped" songs as I'm driving to run!

    Insistor - Tapes 'n Tapes

    The pretender - Foo Fighters

    King for a Day - Green Day

    Top 3 Running songs

    Honestly it depends on the run.  If I'm doing a short run, I like a good upbeat, fast temp song.  Since I do a lot more long distance running I tend to like a wide variety of music to keep me going. 


    Patience by Guns and Roses - for challenging aspects of a run (it reminds me to keep it slow and steady when pushing through a tough hill)

    I Am the Highway by Audioslave - keeps me focused when pushing myself to a new distance

    More Human than Human by Rob Zombie - gets my blood pumping and my energy up


    I listen to such an eclectic range of music, but these are some of the songs I always include in my running list.

    Manik Runner - Training for a Marathon

    My best running song, believe it or not, is a song called "Hero's Comeback" by Nobodyknows+


    You will understand why I said "believe it or not" once you listen to it...
