After the debates on the musical merits of Laura's choices, this 'what's your favourite running tune' question seems to come up with some regularity. Am pleased to see I am not the only one

Current favourite - Depeche Mode 'Just Can't Get Enough'.

The Zombies Run app used to be mentioned a lot, not so much lately.

Baba O'Riley.  The instrumental bit is awesome.  It will make you run like the clappers ☺

Rather corny, I'm afraid, but for hill intervals there is only one song that works. It's got to be Tina Turner - "Simply the Best"  ;)

Ooh, that's good. I can picture it so well.  Will have to add it.

Just downloaded "The best punk album in the world ever" so looking forward to giving that a go - should keep me going!

I've made myself an absolutely cheese-tastic playlist of running songs on iTunes, including - I blush to admit this - the Black Eyed Peas "I Gotta Feeling". On a better note (heh) I also have Donna Summer "I Feel Love" and the Communards " Never Can Say Goodbye".

I read somewhere that Tusk by Fleetwood Mac was a good track to run to because of the BPM. Tried it and I love it! 😊😊😊

It's got to be the Rocky theme tune for me!  Gets me up some stubborn hills.

I like reggae and bounce.  For longer runs I have favs that make me smile and give a boost.

I love downloading Pete Tong on a Friday to listen on my run on Sat. I also have a thing going replacing wa*ky manager speak at meetings ( I go to ALOT) with DJ speak to see if anyone notices 👽

Town called Malice by The Jam,  and Hay Rap by The Saw Doctors both definitely lift the spirits as well as the feet.
