    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    Mine is a little... um wierd. I'm a gamer and a story writer (sometimes lol) so I end up listening to fast pace Video game soundtracks with a few other songs. Basiclly anything that will put me in my "zone" and get lost in the music or whatever story I was thinking of.

    Before the race: Damien Fernandez: Drive (Urban remix)

    The race itself: Warriors Orochi 2, Blazblue: Calamity Trigger, Mass Effect 2

    The end push: Brutha: Turn it up (Louder)

    The walk off: "Hero" by Naz

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    Where's the INXS love?  Aside from the obvious upbeat hits (New Sensation, Devil Inside, What You Need, Pretty Vegas, etc.) there are a few lesser known gems that keep me going strong, especially Bang The Drum.  Love it.


    Other favorites on my lengthy playlist include:

    Panama - Van Halen

    Sabotage - Beastie Boys

    Chugga Chugga Choo Choo - Choo Choo Soul (sure it's a kids' song, but my 2 y/o nephew loves it and it really will keep your feet moving!)

    Too Funky - George Michael

    Born To Be Wild - Steppenwolf

    And We Danced - The Hooters

    Celebration - Kool and the Gang

    A Straight Line - Michael Hutchence (from his solo album)

    West End Girls - Pet Shop Boys

    Starry Eyed Surprised - Paul Oakenfold

    Theme from Superman - John Williams

    Tha Shiznit - Snoop Doggy Dogg

     

     

    And then for some reason I really like my run mixes to have a few TV themes thrown in, with my favorites being Land of the Lost, The Fall Guy, Tales of the Gold Monkey and the all-time best, Jonny Quest.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    I have an electic playlist on my ipod for running, but am always looking for new stuff.  I'm a new runner and old (43)

     

    Right Round by Flo Rida (I love this song...great beat!)

    Accidently in Love by Counting Crows

    The Climb by Miley Cyrus (no judging...I like the words)

    Lots of stuff from the television series "Glee"...they do a lot of upbeat music and I love the show.

    For any lovers of eighties music, I recommend the soundtrack from the Broadway show "Rock of Ages".  All eighties.  Great stuff.

    Put a Ring on It by Beyonce (not a fan of hers really but love that song)

    Some MJ stuff like "Black and White" and "The Way You Make Me Feel".

     

    I even have some upbeat contemporary Christian stuff like "My Deliverer" by Mandisa and "All Things are Possible" by Darlene Zschech

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    Running to 80's songs never gets old for me...Journey, Aha, and Cheap Trick all bring a smile to my face mid-run!

     

    Gotta throw the Lady Gaga in there too, and if you like instrumental stuff try Riverdance themes or the Boondock Saints theme song. Those are good long songs that keep you going.





    Completed:
