Don't Stop me Now by Queen works for me followed by a blast of Scouting for Girls LIVE!

My favourite running track is "Galvanise" by Chemical brothers - keeps my motivation up a treat, especially mid-run

I can't bear dance tunes to run too no idea why, just can't get into it, I am a fan of rock, the beat seems steadier i think, Biffy Clyro is a fav, King of Leon, Kanye West's latest and even a bit of fleetwood mac. Plus Motown always gets me going !

Every week someone asks. Every week I say...

Metallica - S&M

Try it, you'll be surprised.

I love this album, but never thought to try running to it. Will have a go. Thanks

I love The Fratellis second album, The white Stripes and anything by The Proclaimers....

Absolutely despise dance music!

My current playlist on the ipod is:

Mamma Mia cast's- Gimme, Gimme, Gimme; and Voulez-Vous

Christine Aguilera - Candy Man (surprisingly good)

Propane nightmares


Rob Dougan


Lady Gaga


Infinity 2008 (Klaas remix)

My other choices will include (when I get round to it) Muse, Placebo, Metallica, Nickelback, Seether, and almost certainly some more dance tracks.

Eclectic me.

The sound of nature for me every time.

In my one and only half marathon I was really flagging when a bootleg mix of Eye of the Tiger and some rap song came one.....and it really made me pick my legs up...couldn't have timed it better if I'd tried! I always have my pod on shuffle for running just to keep me guessing and have a real mixture on it including:

Chemical Brothers, Masters at work, the Smiths, the Cure, too many dj's, depeche mode, duran duran, groove armada, old skool reggae stuff - no idea who its by, Johnny Cash, Mint Royale, Flying Pops, Blondie, Zero 7, Chungking, Lemon Jelly...a right old weird mixture basically!!

 I am well up for trying Metallica! Might try some GnR's too!

Anything by AC/DC

The Live Album is particularly good with three 10min songs with Angus Young Guitar Solos.

Can't beat the solos for keeping you going!

I love Kings of Leon, the new Lily Allen album and then a few single tracks get me going like Womanizer (Britney  sorry!), FloRida - Right Round and Low...
