    "The Name of the Game" by  The Crystal Method.  If that doesn't get you hyped up nothing will. Check it out on iTunes.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    Wish I had some crashing waves to listen to. I appreciate your comment about listening to birds, etc., and I do run without my headphones sometimes, but I also enjoy music. For one thing, in my busy life it is the only time I ever get to listen to music. I also like to listen to NPR. It really distracts me on a long run. This American Life, Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me, and The Sunday Puzzle are my favorites. I listen to the podcasts of those shows. I also listen to More Hip Than Hippie.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    The best running songs are those which can be successfully used in a training or competition montage in a sport movie. Just stay away from the songs used during the "shaken confidence" montage of the same movies. If the song is sad enough to make Rocky or Rudy want to quit, it will completely demoralize any of us mortal runners.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    Some good suggestions for running music. The big question is????? Do you think there should be a CD compilation of running songs? That was my goal and now it has been achieved. CD's are going fast and are on a limited supply. Order yours today at www.rocknrun.us  Keep up the suggestions for volume 2. Keep Running!

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    I was around in the 80's and don't remember some of your stuff-- I'll have to agree that the Stones are high on my list too... But, don't forget Fleetwood Mac and Rheana and Go your own Way... But, I think as far as I'm concerned, you should listen to some of the 60's stuff like "Pipeline" by the Chantays which refers to the inside of a large wave that surfers try to get into.., the BeachBoys , Jan & Dean, etc...

     

     

     

     

     

    ANother I like is "White Wedding" by Billy Idol.....

     

     

    WOW! I must be some whack job combining all of these decades of sound... ANd I still didn't even touch some of my 50's stuff...........

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

     

    I like music that helps me keep the rhythm of my run or that helps me pick up the pace.  Here are a few favorites:

     

     

    "Los Angeles" by Sugarcult if you like a good steady beat to your music   (about 5.6 mph on the treadmill)

     

     

    "Whine up" by  Kat Deluna (english verison)

     

     

    "Ready 2 Go" by Republica

     

     

    "Perfect Day"  by Hoku  (good easy jogging music)

     

     

    "I'm Free (Heaven Help the Man)"  by Kenny Loggins from the Footloose movie soundtrack

     

     

    "Take on Me" by Aha for sprints or a 7+mph treadmill run

     

     

    Thanks for the other music suggestions here !

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    I like either really fast beat stuff or really slow, relaxing stuff.

    Lately I have been on a kick of listening to GreenDay.

    The beat is perfect for running!

    Very energizing.

    I also like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Coldplay.

    Actually classical music is great for running too believe it or not!

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    I've recent;y added some Theory of a deadman to my plylist and I have the tendency to hit repeat when one their songs are over.  Really gets me going.
