Give me your favourite running songs please!

I haven't updated my music in years and have no idea what are good songs to run to. Please can you let me know some of your favourites.

Thank you.

Bastille - Pompeii

Ladyhawke - Paris is burning

This week I downloaded the BBC music app. You can identify your favourite radio stations and genres of music and choose playlists. There are upbeat playlists that are good for a workout. It's making a nice change to my usual playlist!

Donnie Elbert. Little piece of leather 😀

Land of a thousand dances. WIlson Picket

My absolute fave is The Who's Baba O'Riley. When the instrumental section arrives you gotta hope you are not running uphill 😁

Thank you everyone...poppypug...you made me laugh so much, I added it, run to it today and laughed, sang and ran to my heart's content...what an inspired choice!

I now have a wealth of New songs to run to...tried a handful out today and want to add even more now! I will have the largest choice of songs to run to before long.

jog.fm/ is great to remind of songs you like! I search by BPM and then make a playlist dependant on how fast I'd like to run.
