Retro Runners - Classic Album Tracks - Last Call!

Hi all

I posted asking for your classic album tracks to create a new Spotify play list. From the C25K beyonders group on Facebook and others we have the following playlist live on Spotify.

open.spotify.com/playlist/6...

If you want your track to go on, the please reply here and I’ll add it in. We’ve got about 90 minutes of good thumping classics..., but a few more minutes wouldn’t hurt

Can't access that link at all Jancanrun - I'm older, so don't worry if you don't want to add this, (especially as I usually listen to audible stories while running now), but I'm suggesting Beach Boys, Surfin' USA...

Stevie Wonder - Isn’t She Lovely would be my top one

I also cannot follow that link

Try this link - I think it may be a Health Unlocked issue ?

There seems to be a problem with the link Jan, however, when I tried for a third time I got through and have added it as a favourite.

Excellent playlist Jan, it has gone live, I listened to it when running, I'll tell you a little secret, I tend to listen to all your playlists including the latest when I go walks rather than running but yesterday Wednesday 1st June I ran my longest ever run, an 11K with your music from Retro Runners, Classic Album Tracks and enjoyed all of the music throughout the run.

I had almost finished my run yesterday when my favourite running track came on which is the 1966 hit by the Spencer Davies Group 'Keep on running' I only had about 300 metres to go until I completed that 11K, that track is also on another of your running Spotify playlists which I requested around 18 months ago.

American Girl. Tom Petty.

I never hear that on the radio, such a good track.

Hope you are doing well BTW, so nice to see you back here 😊

I love that track and nice to be back here too... Just a pity my stats are a shocker! Ho hum

What a good idea!

It's got to be The Spirit of Radio by Rush for me - always makes me feel glad to be alive!

Well if its that good it has to go on!

Gimme Shelter by the Rolling Stones.

I started jotting down ideas for my personal playlist in anticipation of my graduation.

As I only graduated this morning I've not compiled it yet, but likely 70s-80s candidates for inclusion on my list are below. It's a braindump, I'm certainly not expecting you to include them!

Here goes:

Status Quo - Caroline.

The Sweet - Ballroom Blitz.

The Pointer Sisters - Jump.

Aha - Take on Me.

Fleetwood Mac - Don't Stop.

Joan Armatrading - Drop the Pilot.

The Communards - Don't leave me this way.

Bronski Beat - Smalltown Boy.

Mud - Tiger Feet.

Hi Cmoi - I’ve done some 60s 70s 80s and 90s sounds plus many other daft ones like colours and so on. Have a look here and you’ll find lots of playlists dedicated to C25Kers and it may save you some time on compiling too!

open.spotify.com/user/janca...

And I’ve added in Fleetwood Mac !

That's great, really appreciate your reply Jancanrun. I've only just started using Spotify, will definitely take a look at your playlists!

Thanks for this Jan, I'll be creating a playlist on Deezer from your suggestions - still haven't got round to getting a spotify account yet.

Hope all is well with you.

I Love You, Suzanne by Lou Reed

I Saw Her Standing There by The Beatles

Spanish Flea by The Spencer Davies Group

I Love To Boogie by T Rex

If it's just one track though, it has to be

Have You Ever Seen The Rain by Credence Clearwater Revival

Creedence It is - but check out my other C25K inspired playlists, as I’m sure there maybe more you’ll like. And I’ll do another theme next month

Great idea Jancanrun. How about the Bee Gees - Stayin Alive

I love this playlist some really good tunes and I’m going to use it tomorrow morning. Would 2nd Law Isolated System be considered retro - it’s 2012 but is an amazing tune so could this be added?
