Here's my current running playlist:
Rehab -- Amy Winehouse
Rebellion (Lies) -- The Arcade Fire
Wouldn't it be Nice -- the Beach Boys
Pump It -- the Blackeyed Peas<br />Blister in the Sun -- the Violent Femmes<br />I Wanna Be Sedated -- The Ramones<br />Stray Cat Blues -- The Rolling Stones<br />Cecilia -- Simon & Garfunkel<br />Somebody Told Me -- the Killers<br />Bron-Y-Aur Stomp -- Led Zepplin<br />Dragostea din Tei -- O-Zone<br /><br /> Lest anyone doubt my indie cred, I SWEAR I only listen to this while running.
** You may doubt me, but this is actually the greatest song of all time.
It's only about 38 minutes long because I made it for W7, but I need to make a new one because now it's too short
Just my two cents, here, but you know what really helped me with my playlist? I would listen to stations that I don't typically listen to. My taste in music include Dave Matthews Band, Joss Stone, Coldplay, etc. When I would drive somewhere or hear a song I liked, I would write it down ... or jot down ideas from here. Soon, I had a list that I LOVE to run to!! But my running list include songs from 50 Cent, Missy Elliott, Fergie, Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Lopez, Prince, Ricky Martin, etc.
Good luck & rock on!
augie09 you rock! This is the thread I was looking at before and was trying to find again. I run almost every day so my music gets stale pretty quickly - I'm always looking for new music for my iPod. I'm going to compile a list of my own and post too.... thank you!
