    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    My playlist is over 7 hours, but on my hard 20 miler last weekend, there were certain songs that made sure I kept running.

     

    Kanye West - Stronger (That that don't kill me can only make me stronger)

     

     

    Fort Minor - Remember the Name (10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will, 5% pleasure 50% PAIN...)

     

     

    Eminem - Til I Collapse (Til my legs give out...I'm gonna whip thisxxx til my bones collapse...)

     

     

    Eminem - Lose Yourself (If you had one shot...would you capture it..or let it slip?)

     

     

    Kevin Rudolf - She Can Get (She don't stop..she can get it...don't quit, the way that she moves it...)

     

     

    Kevin Rudolf - Let it Rock ...is just cool

     

     

    Chemical Brothers - Galvanize (Don't hold back..cause you woke up in the morning with a mission to move)

     

     

    ES Posthumous - Pompeii ...nice run beat with a choir that adds that desperation feel that O Fortuna has

     

     

    All American Rejects - Gives You **** - Limousine remix (It gives you ****..)

     

     

     

     

     

    There are SO many good ones though..

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

     

    I like running to the music from run2rhythm because the beats are matched to my running steps. I find it an excellent way to get good rhythm and maintain pace.

     

     

    I paritcularly like Adrian Szondy's 'Electrostatic Step' @ 166bpm and also Lee 'Sonny boy' Morgan's 'Force Within' @171bpm. This is awesome music that is ideal for running with.

     

     

    Have a look at http://www.run2r.com/running-music-store%2B166bpm.aspx#6 and also http://www.run2r.com/running-music-store%2B171bpm.aspx#11

    Try    Seal- "Amazing"   Good motivator! New to running and will be running my first 5 k on sunday! I am scared and have not trained like I should have. Have a small toddler and just hard to get energy and time aside. Reminds me to put more music on my i-pod for the race. I only have about 10 songs on there.  Any suggestions for your favorite songs?

     

    Late on this reply, but I hope you did well on your 5K race.

     

    Here are some motivational songs I like (maybe I posted before), majority of my playlist are rock songs.

     

    Move Along by The All American Rejects

    How Far We've Come by Matchbox 20

    The Anthem by Good Charlotte

    Where Are We Runnin by Lenny Kravitz

    Beat It by Fall Out Boy feat. John Mayer

    Pump It by Blackeyed Peas

     

    Keep up the training and good luck!  Happy running

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

     

    My run mix "must haves" change very often as I need new music every few weeks. Right now in heavy rotation are:

     

     

    "When Love Takes Over (Original Club Mix)" - David Guetta and Kelly Rowland

     

     

    "To Sir With Love (Barry Harris remix)" - Chaka Khan

     

     

    "We Belong Together (Peter Rauhofer remix)" - Mariah Carey

     

     

    "Halo (Karmatronic remix)" - Beyonce

     

     

    "Cry for You (Spencer & Hill mix)" - September

     

     

    "With Every Heartbat (Voodoo & Serrano remix)" - Robyn

     

     

    "Rush on Me (Riffs and Rays remix)" - Stephanie Mills

     

     

    "Intervention (DJ Ander Standing remix)" - Madonna

     

     

    Can you tell I like those soaring, anthemic diva mixes?!! Gladly I'm always out of breath when I'm running so I don't have the ability to sing along at the top of my lungs.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

     

    Does anyone find running to a cadence helpful?  

     

     

    I recently ran a 5k whereas there were a squads running to cadence.   I turned off my music and began to run alongside them and I felt quite comfortable with the pace  ...and the entertainment value.      I am considering downloading some cadence, just need to research which branch(es) have the best ones.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    Hi! Newb runner and new to the forum! But I must say that the one song that has been on every mp3 player and iPod I've ever had is:

    Golden Earring - Twilight Zone

     

    It's got a great beat and is about 8 minutes long.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

     

    I just look for songs with a nice steady "pace" throughout, for the most part.  Something with a good, steady bass line that just drives through the whole song.  But I like some good rockers or some hip hop too.

     

     

    One of my favorites is by Wilco - "Spiders (kidsmoke)"  - it just keeps the same beat all throughout the song...and it's a longer song....and then picks up at a few points with a bit of rocking guitars, but then returns to the steady pace....I like to kick off my runs with this song as I think it helps me get into my pace.  Another good song by Wilco is "I'm a Wheel"

     

     

    I also like to run to the White Stripes quite a bit.

     

     

    That being said...I only use the iPod when training, don't take it on actual races.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

     

    Lots and lots and lots of Pearl Jam, especially live 'bootlegs.'  "Alive," live, at the end of a long run really makes my day.

     

     

    Rage Against the Machine -- can't be beat for energy

     

     

    Social Distortion "Ball and Chain" -- great song, very motivating.

     

     

    Peter Gabriel, "Solsbury Hill" -- terrific song, really captures running on a cool, clear day for me.

     

     

    U2, "Where the Streets Have No Name" -- good (top of the) long hill song. 

     

     

    I had to take some artists that I really like (most of The Clash, R.E.M.) off of my iPod because the tempo was just off for me.

    Lit : My Own Worst Enemy

     

     

    Gwen Stefani: The Sweet Escape and Cool

     

     

    All American Rejects: Gives You ****

    Usher:  Yeah!
