What are your top 3 running songs? Mine are Trick pony by Charlotte Gainsbourg, Never say never by Armin Van Buuren and Heaven (funkstorung mix) by Lamb.
Charlotte Racefest at Southpark Half Marathon April 16, 2011.
I am interested to see what people post, because I am looking for some good running tunes! I am slightly embarrassed to admit this, but my favorites right now are Born This Way by Lady Gaga, Take Me Out by Atomic Tom, and Smalltown Boy by Bronski Beat.
I may not be good, but I'm slow!
freedom 90 by george michael
nobodies fault but mine by led zeppelin
DMB toss up: (JTR or If I Had It All), though thinking If I had it all is winning now for obvious reasons related to running.
Okay, not really 3, but 6 of my favorites:

"Low" by FloRida
"Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix A Lot

I remember an article from Runner's World discussing this years ago. I think the author decided that "My Sharona" by The Knack was the worst song to listen to, since it would then be stuck in your head all day. (And, I apologize if it is now stuck in your head.)
"Fighter" - Christina Aguilera
"Chelsea Dagger" - The Fratellis
"Keep Pushin' - REO Speedwagon
"I Will Survive" - Gloria Gaynor (when I do a half marathon, I put this song towards my expect mile 12 or so time)
"Betty Lou's Gettin' Out Tonight" - Bob Segar & The Silver Bullet Band (this one has a fast pace)

For the 3rd year straight I'll be running the American Odyssey Relay from Gettysburg, PA to DC with mostly the same people as before, and for this year as it was the past two years, "Get Back" is the team song. Every time the van passes our runner on the road we slow down, slide open the door and crank it.
