What better way to get extra motivation for the big 26.2 than with a playlist all about running.
The Amazon MP3 store have released the list of their tops selling running tracks in the lead-up to London Marathon. With this in mind, here are our favourite running tracks:
I'd disagree with most of them, the Bryan Adams song is the best on that list and Syn Cole Miama 82 (Kygo mix) is the best running song I've ever heard.
I love that uncool people listen to this type of playlist.
If there are no generic turds listening to dross then how can there be cool people?
A marathon playlist with only ten tracks? I assume they must all be EPs then.
I think you'll find that it it's all a matter of taste Simon - a bit like gels vs jelly babies only more wide-ranging.
Some of us on here run to symphonic metal. There is no "best", it's whatever floats your boat.
Anyone else run with what looks like weight-lifting gloves on ?
Completely agree Screamapillar, i did used to run to Lord Of The Rings type music with the epic soundtrack stuff and the orchestra "i'm chasing the trolls across Lincolnshire" type mentality that i had.
I tend to now go for something with a steady beat that can take my mind off of what i'm doing.
Dicky M, if you're talking about the asian lady in the picture, they're boxer's hand wraps that she's wearing rather than weight lifting gloves.
Yeah, I always wear those when running just in case I have to defend myself against an angry goose
So the talkback article is that someone can come up with ten tracks with run in the title?
Yes. Five minutes on Wikipedia, job done. Great journalism.
Having 'run' in the title is not a prerequisite of a good running track. None of the tunes I play while doing the housework have any mention of ironing, vacuuming or mopping and I do just fine.
That's what I thought Miss Cunk but was too polite to point it out, other great running songs include...
The only good one for me is #9 "Keep the car running" since it has a good beat. The rest as you all say.. they might as well have included Whitney Houston's "Run to you" XD
