A little while ago I asked SLSB fans on Facebook about their favourite power tracks to run/work out to. Lots of people responded and I put together a playlist of 13 tracks that are fabulous to run to! The tracks I picked are:
Rock Star (Jason Nevins Remix Edit) - N.E.R.D.
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Daft Punk
I Like How It Feels - Enrique Inglesias
Straight Lines - Silverchair
Where's Your Head At - Basement Jaxx
Knights of Cydonia - Muse
All Of The Lights - Kanye
Lose Yourself - Eminem
Catch - Kosheen
Super Massive Black Hole - Muse
Shoot The Runner - Kassabian
Joker And The Thief - Wolfmother
Alejandro - Lady Gaga
This is the order I had them in - I know 8tracks mixes it up once you've played it once the whole way through - so the idea is that you started with my favourite, guaranteed to make you feel like a rock star song (!) and Lady Gaga is designed to be the cool down.
I enjoy having the mix on around the house too, it's a surprisingly (well, maybe not so surprisingly!) motivating mix to have on while working. Most of the songs I had heard before but I had never thought of running too, and they're fabulous! Silverchair's "Straight Lines" is particularly good on those long bumpy trails. I love having new music to listen to on a run, it's one of the best rut-breakers I know!
I am working on Part 2 as we speak, which I'll hopefully have ready for next Saturday's race!
What are your favourite running/work out songs that get you pumped?
