    For hills and the woods, just the birdies tweeting, squirrels rustling and wind through the trees is fine, normally, although a good ballgame can be diverting on occasion. 

     

     

    For the track interval workouts, it's gotta be the soundtrack from Beverly Hills Cop, especially Neutron Dance, to which one must keep the cadence in paces for at least 800 meters, or be dropped from the imaginary team.  So far, for the past 15 years, I've managed to avoid being cut, although it's been close on a couple particularly hot days.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    great topic...

     

    first of all, as a previous poster said--with small children around you all day, getting to listen to your own music is a huge bonus when running.  i have to run on our treadmill while our 2 sons (3 years old and 21 months) take their naps so if i didn't have my iPod (and CNN on mute on the tv), i'd never make it.  i have so many different playlists and they all are terrific, to me.  embarrassing to admit most of the songs, but terrific for treadmill training.

     

    anyone else into 70's/80's/disco/funk?

    cheesy old rick springfield is fun (reminds me of being 10 and being carefree all summer)

    'to be real'

    'good times'--le chic (if only for the ridiculous "clams on the half-shell...and roller skates, roller skates" lyric...)

    'we are family'--sister sledge

     

    then there's the uber-cheesy pop-fluff that's worthless earcandy...which makes it perfect for doing hills on a treadmill

    'umbrella' and 'sos'--rianna

    'sunday morning'--maroon 5

    1,2,3,4--feist

    justin timberlake

    ;grace kelly'--mika

    'one thing leads to another--the fixx

     

    beach stuff--

    good lovin'--the rascals

    'sweet caroline'

    'beautiful morning'--the rascals

     

    then there's the non-cheesy, but inspirational stuff--

    'beautiful day' and 'walk on'--u2

    'shut your eyes'--snow patrol

    'see the world'--gomez

    'ain't no mountain high enough...'

     

    could go on...great topic.

    and yes, though i know it's possible to hypnotize oneself on a run and zone out, this (thankfully) only happens to me in races.  otherwise, i stay 110% cognizant of surroundings, footing, etc when running outside...

     

    best!

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    I like a good heavy song to get me going like "Happy" by Mudvayne, or "Stillborn" by black label society. But in general I try to mix it up, with heavy fast songs where I usually am getting tired to try to push myself. Sometimes Ill mix in some military cadences like "I can run to haiti just like this". This seems to work for me.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    I love listening to trance (techno). One of my favorites is "Feel the Beat" by Darude. There's a part that slows down in the middle, and it makes me feel like I'm running in a Nike commercial on an open road or something. Anything from the "Trance Party" disc series.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    Two that come to mind are the themes from "Rocky" and "Chariots of Fire".     Another one I like could be awkward, as it's an old time Irish Rebel Song called "Get Out Ye Black and Tans" .  Hope nobody's offended, but song is very lively.  There are so many others that I don't know where to begin.  I also like the "Tiger Rag", "Alabama Jubilee"  and anything Dixieland Jazz or Mummers music.

    You Spin Me Around (Like A Record) by Dead or Alive, Gimme More by Britney Spears, It's Not Over by Daughtry...Pretty much I like listening to songs that are upbeat and not slow...

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

     

    I'm a major fan of ska, punk, and classic rock...but off the top o' my head:

     

     

    The Vandals- Come Out Fighting; Reel Big Fish- Beer; The Distillers- Beat Your Heart Out; almost any Flogging Molly- What's Left Of The Flag, Seven Deadly Sins; lots of 311- Creatures (For Awhile) and Feels So Good are a couple of my faves; Pennywise- Bro Hymn; AFI- Girl's Not Grey, Prelude 12/21; Jimi Hendrix- Fire, Foxy Lady; Rolling Stones- Paint It Black; Queen- Fat-Bottomed Girls; Led Zep- Immigrant Song; Sweet- Ballroom Blitz; practically all AC/DC; Steppenwolf- Magic Carpet Ride; Scorpions- Rock You Like A Hurricane; The Who- Baba O'Riley....

     

     

    I usually only listen to music if I'm running on a treadmill but if I'm listening while running outside, I only keep one earbud in and the other tucked in my shirt.  I'm more aware of things around me that way.
