I ask this because My list is cobbled together from stuff already on my trusty IPod classic. I am reasonably happy with it, but it could be improved, which will mean buying stuff on iTunes and using the phone, so am open to ideas from you good folks. At he moment it goes like this:Adele : Rolling in the Deep; Free: Wishing Well (love it, but not sure for running); The Jacksons : Can You Feel It (perfect); The Proclaimers: I'm Gonna Be; The Boss: Badlands (also perfect); Pointer Sisters: Jump (For My Love); Boomtown Rats : I Don't Like Mondays ( good but Rat Trap better, I suspect); Gerry Fafferty: Baker Street ( this was supposed to be for when I was in that mellow, in the zone part of the run. It hasn't happened yet, but I live in hope); Then some techie idiot has added the Jacksons again, but it is probably the most aposite song on here so......; Osibisa: Sunshine Day; Tom Robinson Band: 2,4,6,8 motorway; Roxy Music: Virginia Plain;The Jacksons: I want You Back. By the way, have never actually got all the way through this list yet! Any ideas gratefully received!

I have so much, I don't know where to start. I have an upbeat gospel p,aylist with songs like Jesus dropped the charges, Better than life, I am not forgotten, Until I found the Lord, We have overcome, etc. A lot of it from Israel and the New Breed.

Also like some 50s and 60s songs like Rave on, Proud Mary, Cool Jerk.
Today I ran to The Boys of Belfast which was great. Mind you I even run to old English folksongs or Italian arias. Thank goodness for music!
There may be more than one but I do like it. It's not necessarily the kind of music I would listen to generally but I like rather irregular rhythms for pure enjoyment which don't tend to serve running all that well.
I run a bit faster when I use it, that I can tell you! (The opposite of Gardener's Question Time which I also like to listen to when running)
You are more aware of time passing if you have a series of 3 minute or so tracks, so for longer distances I much prefer a spoken word podcast. And I am also very fond of birdsong and the wind in the trees.
