    Re: Your Fav Music 2 Run 2?

    I am trying to build a playlist too.  I am a raving fan of classic rock music, from which it will be more difficult to cull songs that would be appropriate.  Here are some that I know will work (and I am open to suggestions!):

     

    1)   A Hard Day's Night  - The Beatles

    2)   I Saw Her Standing There - The Beatles

    3)   Give Me Some Lovin'  - The Spencer Davis Group

    4)   Birthday  - The Beatles

    5)   Angry Young Man  - Billy Joel

    6)   James Dean  - The Eagles

    7)   Back in the USSR  - The Beatles

    8)   Slow Down  - The Beatles

    9)   I'll Cry Instead  - The Beatles

    10) I've Just Seen a Face  - The Beatles

    11) Paperback Writer  - The Beatles

    12) 25 or 6 to 4  - Chicago

    13) Oh Atlanta  - Little Feat

     

     

    My apologies for this list being Beatle-heavy, but their music is my passion.  I would love to receive other suggestions from this genre.

    Re: Your Fav Music 2 Run 2?

    My iPod is a hodge podge of different genres ... but there's one song in particular that always gets me running a little bit harder: "I'm Shipping up to Boston" by the Dropkick Murphys.  You may recognize it from the NFL commercials last season ...

    Hi, Meryl!

    First of all, thank you for your thread! I am a very beginner and choosing music for run at the moment. Have a very few favourites. First of all Tool - Stinkfist, I adore it and not only for run, another is Nickelback - Saving me and Wolfmother - Mind's Eye. Last song is little bit slow, just as I am while running

    Have a good day!





    1st of April 2011 I started to run...

    Highway to Hell--AC/DC

     

    Running on Empty-- Jackson Browne

     

    Danger Zone-- Kenny Loggins

     

    One Vision-- Queen

     

    Final Countdown-- Europe

     

    Right Round-- Flo Rida

     

    We Didn't Start the Fire-- Billy Joel

     

    Those are my favorite running songs, I have a different list for my workout songs.

    - Rise Against

    - DJ Markski, Magix, Eternal (Any eurodance will do)

    Re: Your Fav Music 2 Run 2?

    It's fun to have a variety of tempos and intensities on your 'pod and let the music dictate your run. Yesterday, I had on a recent playlist (called "run amok"), and the gods of randomness favored me with the following back-to-back-to-back-to-back tracks to take me right up to my doorstep in a fine lather:

    Social Distortion--When She Begins

    Roy Orbison--Ooby-Dooby

    Stiff Little Fingers--Suspect Device

    Guitar Wolf--Jet Generation

    It felt great! So did stopping.

    Re: Your Fav Music 2 Run 2?

    OK, I love to run to music but diff than most here. Give me bluegrass and BG Gospel (I play dobro in a bluegrass band), a banjo can really get you goin if you let it. Dont get me wrong I need some ACDC, ZZTop, or Molly Hachet sometimes too. Gonna look into some of the other suggestions as well as the BPM music, thanks for the all the tips. D.

    Katy Perry- ET

    Michael Franti- Hey hey hey

    Kat Deluna- Run this Show

    Panic at the Disco- Time to Dance

    Re: Your Fav Music 2 Run 2?

    So interesting to see what others choose... My iPod has a wide variety of genres on it and my "Running" playlist is heavy on the irony--many of the titles are like a private joke to myself. This isn't the entire list, but it's a pretty good representation.

     

    The End of the Line -- Travelling Willburys

    A Galope -- Azúcar Moreno ("At a gallop" flamenco music, women singers from Spain)

    Roam --B-52's

    Run -- Benton Paul

    One, Two, Three, GO! -- Belanova (in Spanish)

    The Great Escape -- Boys Like Girls

    Wonderful -- Gary Go

    That's Some Dream -- Good Old War

    Running on Empty -- Jackson Browne

    Be Good to Yourself -- Journey

    Onda -- Los Lonely Boys

    Arráncame el Corazón -- Maná (Spanish)

    Not Falling Apart -- Maroon 5

    How Far We've Come -- Matchbox 20

    Abran Fuego -- The Mills (Spanish)

    Steer -- Missy Higgins

    Your Wildest Dream -- The Moody Blues

    We Are Not Going to Make It -- The Presidents of the United States

    Under Pressure -- Queen

    Keep Yourself Alive -- Queen

    It's the End of the World as We Know It -- R.E.M.

    Dance the Night Away -- VanHalen
