So I've gone and bought all the gear today, but need seem some good songs to run to

Maximo Park (especially Our Velocity & Girls who play guitars) and most of the Foo Fighters back catalogue.

This is war & kings and queens, both 30 seconds to mars.
Anything pendulum or chase and status.
Most rock music for the strong beat.

I have got Calvin Harris' latest and the Swedish House Mafia albumn on a loop at the moment, depending on whether I'm feeling like a cheerful bouncy run or an angry, pounding the pavements run!

I like the continuous mix versions of the album so I don't notice when one song stops and then think about stopping myself!

Giong to check some of these suggestions out too.

Oasis - The Hindu Times, Supersonic, Columbia
Madonna - I'm Addicted, Jump
Chemical Brothers - Hey Boy Hey Girl
Supergrass - Tales of Endurance
Stereo MCs - Connected

These songs generally keep me perked up (more than 5 though....)

Bohemian like you - The Dandy Warhols !!!!

PepeLePew Wed 15-Jan-14 13:00:46

Death in Vegas - Aisha. Quite alarming, makes me run really fast if it's dark!
Stronger - Kanye West. I defy anyone not to hear this and want to go faster.
There's a great song called Heat Lightning by Icky Blossoms which I hadn't heard until a friend made me a running playlist which gets me moving.

Agree with Chemical Brothers, Swedish House Mafia and Calvin Harris though I'm not usually a dance music fan.

Example - Kickstarts and Changed the Way You Kiss Me
Calvin Harris - Feel so Close
Dizzee Rascal - Dirty Disco and Going Crazy
Muse - Knights of Cydonia
The Libertines - I Get Along
Arctic Monkeys - I Bet That You Look Good on the Dancefloor
Skrillex - Kill Everybody

Stereophonics lots

Cheating as it's a whole album but: Daft Punk Live (album) - it's like a runner's secret weapon!
Calvin Harris: I Get All The Girls
R Kelly: World's Greatest
Empire of the Sun: We Are The People
Arctic Monkeys: R U Mine

I've done four half marathons and these are the ones that got me going! Good luck!

I like a bit of Pink / Black Eyed Peas / Blur / Pulp / Justin T. My taste is a bit random.
