  • I *just* posted on this morning's music! Gonna start all my runs with Tina Turner's "Proud Mary" now--*such* a good warm up. My other top track would be "Eye Of The Tiger", because who can't feel better, train harder, and run faster when they're in a montage, right?! For me, it's mostly about the ironic-joy of 80s anthems... :) Although sometimes the thumping rigidity of pop drums is all a bit much so I go a bit rogue with The Dambusters March and other hits of the British Light Music scene.

  • I know - it was your post that inspired me to start the post! Eye of the Tiger is a classic - I have that on my playlist too!

  • Footloose, Lenny loggins, is an absolute must 😁

  • Oooh - another goodie and that one's not on my playlist!

  • I love Stand by your man! πŸ˜ƒ Strangely I run to stuff that I,don't normally listen to. it just sort of works πŸ™‚ When I run to it I sing really loud, Staynd by yerrrr mayn 😎

  • Haha MissW. Go for it πŸ˜„

  • I'm going to follow this post need some new music inspiration all I've got is a workout album and it's getting a bit stale now x

  • I feel Love- Donna Summer... I got my last 5k PB listening to that on a loop - was last year tho :(

  • I run mostly to big epic orchestral scores which make me imagine I'm a warrior princess running to save the world 😏 but apart from that I have a very mixed bag on my playlist!

    I love running to these:

    Bad Moon Rising - Creedance Clearwater Revival. I love the lyrics ("the end is coming soon") πŸ™‚

    Tusk - Fleetwood Mac as it's perfect for running fast.

    Changed the way you kiss me - Example

    And ...... I told you it was a mixed bag - and I can't believe I'm admitting to this in public 😏

    Pray with me - Rick Astley πŸ˜•

    It is great to run to. Honest.

  • Oh and this one

  • Ooh this is a good one!

  • It's from the film "Burnt" and played at the end credits. When it started my first thought was "oh that would be good for running!".

  • Haha you know you're addicted to running when . . . ;)

  • πŸ˜„

  • That's a stonker Irishprincess

  • I love Bad Moon Rising! Their Heard it through the grapevine is a bit unusual in a good way πŸ˜ƒ

    Rick Astley 😁😁😁. Only kidding. I do like him

    I am deffo getting the Donna Summer on my play thingy. Brilliant suggestion. Just the thing for solid running. i think that would be good to run to the final five minutes of Stepping Stones podcast Ju

  • I listen to some songs from the INXS kick album, but I love running to the script hall of fame as well

  • Love proud Mary, also Elvis Promised Land, Ed Sheeran Sing and Tom Jones Help Yourself mixed bag for me

  • 'Dark chest of wonders' by Nightwish (you will fly to the moon and back with that one) and 'Thunderstruck' AC/DC

  • Great thread! I like it when I find one at a rhythm that matches my foot beats! Sultans of Swing and Money for Nothing (Dire Straits) and Kodachrome (Paul Simon) are great to run to :)
