What is the tune you currently love running to?

I'm sat currently refreshing my running playlist (ranging from Ini Kamoze's Here Comes the Hotstepper to Blink 182's First Dates) made wonder what other people love running to.

My playlist has mostly 80s songs on it.

Film ones like You're the best from Karate Kid, Maniac from Flashdance and others like Flock of Seagulls' I ran and David Bowie's Modern Love.

Any trance music.

Ha! Was coming on to say The Distance by Cake and @LunaNorth beat me to it!

No Lucifer is an excellent choice @motorcyclenumptiness and I will definitely be adding it to my playlist.

Can also recommend Army of Me by Bjork (especially the version with Skunk Anansie) and Bizarre Love Triangle by New Order.
