If we've done this before, I apologise.
Inspired by WWRs excellent provoking threads re music of bygone ages... here's my question. In these days of CD-Rs, we can make up our own CDs to inspire us mid run.
What would be on your ideal running CD?

Mine include:-
Madonna - You'll see
Jimmy Nail- Running man ( it's better than it sounds)
Areosmith- don't want to miss a thing.
Boston- more than a feeling

I'm still working on this.

Any lists or ideas???

Road to nowhere - Talking Heads
Always look on the bright side of life - Eric Idle

Both on my MP3 player at the moment.

Just to let you know that I am not reading any of these postings as I want to go home on time tonight...unlike last week.

Yours with the blinkers on


P.S. good luck with this potentially record-breaking thread Barkles

I will survive - Gloria Gaynor at top of hill gasping for breath.

Nice steady pace - White Wedding-Billy Idol
Treadmill - Incline - Thats the way it is - Run DMC

Could add Shakira 'wherever, whenever'. Not a running theme, I know, but memories of the video may keep me going.

How about a good bit of Prodigy?
They're plying Reading Festival on Sunday and I can't get a babysitter...guess we'll have to sit in the back garden and imagine it all instead!!

I've managed to avoid Reading so far - but they've definitely invaded Caversham as well. They don't make me feel old - just a bit jealous as I'd love to be going along too!!

Its no rumour WW. I am that old....but luckily still younger than Ratbag. Snigger

I keep meaning to ask you. What is that in your hand. At first I thought it was a cigar.
