    Re: favorite running song(s)?


    I love blood-pumping rock n roll



    Most Favourites for Running are....



    Anything by Led Zeppelin - most favourites being "in the evening" or "when the levee breaks"



    Anything by The Cult



    Guns n Roses - Sweet Child of Mine



    Lynard Skynard - "Sweet Home Alabama" & "Freebird"






    Also like some of the old dance tracks - "Your a Superstar" is great if the energy is dipping



    For 'inspirational' tracks you can't beat "Reach" by Gloria Estefan

    I can't believe someone else said  Blackhorse and the Cherry Tree.  Some of my others fav's are:



    Pink: Leave Me Alone, plus others from that cd.



    Blondie: Maria,  Killers:Mr. Brightside.  Keith Urban: Better Life



    When I'm treadmill running it's Gnarles Barkley Smiley Faces.



    Got some good ideas from this though.  thanks

    Absolutely great tune for inspiring a run, whether you listen to it while you run or any other time -



    Emmylou Harris - Born To Run



    It's the words, listen to them, you can understand them.  It is about being free and being someone and running fast.  Totally cool.

    Move Along- All-American Rejects, How Far We've Come- Matchbox Twenty, Forca- Nelly Furtado (SO GOOD!! Forca means strength, very inspiring), Bad Day-Daniel Powter... FallOut Boy seems to work really well for runs too, but the messages aren't as positive... though they are a little "I could kick your butt-ish"



    and I totally agree about the "I Run for Life" Melissa Etheridge song-- she wrote that for a breast cancer charity run sponsored by Ford after she was diagnosed with it herself...



    any other suggestions??

    I don't usually listen to music when I run, but when i do it has to be anything by Rush.

    My Favorites are



    Anything by Mortification, Diciple and 12 stones all of which get me pumped and make me wanna keep going.  My work out play list has heavy metal rock rap and techno everything I need to keep the mind going when the body wants to stop.

    Well, anything upbeat from Def Leppard goes on my iPod shuffle. But if I were to pick just 3 songs (from any artist,) I'd take:



    (1) Def Leppard - Armageddon It,  (2) Sammy Hagar - I Can't Drive 55, (3) Bruce Springsteen -  No Surrender 






    2015 highlights...

    a little Doobie Brothers and Classic Rock gets me going.  Also listen to Bon Jovi - Lost Highway.  Purple Rain is also great.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    When I am completely unmotivated, I make sure I have some military cadence on the ol' mp3 player. Nothing like having a drill sergent help me keep pace and breathe. Otherwise, its a mad assortment of Atreyu's Doomsday & Crimson, Bullet4myValentine's Tears don't Fall & Hand of Blood, with a little dance music to round it out.

    Hey Runners, I have made a compilation of 18 Rock Running songs and named the Cd, Rock "N" Run. I have paid for and own the license to these original songs. I have played the Cd at some races and have sold some. Runners really like the idea! "Its very motivational and insiring" You can own the Cd for only $10.00 plus S&H. You can view my beginning website at I am long time runner and X-C and Track Coach in NJ. You can also call me (973) 857-0423. Keep rocking!
