I currently run 3miles 3x a week at roughly 8:45min/mile but am bored of my playlist, any ideas along these lines:

Riptide - Vance Joy
Chelsea Dagger - the Fratellis
That's Not My Name - the Tings

I think about this a lot. I pick up-tempo stuff; hard rock and metal, dance, punk, pop etc. Current favourites are:

Tin Soldier - Stiff Little Fingers
I Don't Feel Like Dancing - Scissor Sisters
Self v Self - Pendulum featuring In Flames
Power Of Love - Huey Lewis & The News
Ebenezer Goode - The Shamen
The Torch - Bury Tomorrow
Black Ice - AC/DC
Jump - Van Halen
Insomnia - Faithless
Uptown Funk - Bruno Mars /Mark Ronson

Etc. I think Ministry Of Sound do running compilations but they look too dance-heavy for me.

Brill, thanks, will add and keep/delete as they work! I find it hard, some songs i think will be perfect end up making me totally out of step, I need a fairly fast beat i think

I fiddle with my playlist a lot tbh as things I think I'll like to run to don't always work. I have two main lists, one rock/metal and the other is more bouncy with tracks from musicals.

My fave tracks are things like Love Shack, Happy, All about the bass, Black Betty, Temple of Love, and Can't stop the beat. But theres lots of Queen, AC/DC and random stuff as well

Summertime, This Can't be Love, walking on Sunshine, that man, Warrior, The Flood, 21 guns...

Happy is one currently on my list actually

I'm erring towards upbeat and up tempo

3 albums - Calvin Harris Motion, One Republic Native, & Ellie Goulding Halcyon. Each are about 1hr & could help!

I have a rule with mine, if I forward past the song twice it gets deleted!!! At the moment it's got kasabian, arctic monkeys, catfish and the bottlemen, stereophonics, jamie t, oasis and bluetones. Uptown funk is a brilliant song to run to, it always gives me a boost when I'm struggling towards the end! smile

I walk rather than run, but Daft Punk is good. Lots of beat & rhythm.

Hmmm stereophonics could work

Have popped a few of your suggestions on my list, thanks all!

Not that I'll be doing any running today #hungover

Only snag with a really invigorating playlist is you find yourself trying to play air drums/guitar as you run (or is that just me?) blush

I like airstream driver by Gomez

AmericasTorturedBrow Thu 01-Jan-15 21:56:42

Yes!! I def do the random drum sticks...and leap in time to the music when going UK and down curbs

I once ran about a km doing the above-head fist punch/handclap to Bullet For My Valentine's "Forever And Always". I am so not a cool runner...
