Running Playlist – The Soundtrack For Your Run

Lately I’ve been working a lot on the running playlist iPhone and Android apps and that got me thinking.

What is a running playlist?

Besides the fact that it’s music that you listen to on your run, you could also think about it as the soundtrack for your run, just like the soundtrack for a movie.

Now what if we take this concept one step further and actually run with a real soundtrack?!

Running can get boring at times, even with great music. But what if your run becomes a movie starring you?
With the right soundtrack every run could be a different story

  • You could be a washed up runner, about to be kicked off the team, but given one last chance for the run of your life.
  • You could be a strapping young law student escaping rogue government agents who want to kill you because you discovered a dark secret (can you tell I just watched the Pelican brief:)
  • Or, you could be a hunter running through a primitive jungle chasing your prey or Is it chasing you?

I did a quick Internet search and found a lot of interesting resources for great soundtrack music but one really stood out. The site is called jewel beat, and it has hundreds if not thousands of actual soundtracks that you can get for free or for very cheap. It’s even searchable by theme, so if you want motivational music or suspenseful music or whatever, you can find it easily.

Now I have a soundtrack running playlist on my iPhone and every run can be a different movie.

I recently ran to the running playlist below, and I have to say, it’s a very interesting experience to run with a movie playing in your head. I especially liked the final track which made me imagine running to the finish line and the crowds cheering my victory…

And now, here’s the list, I would love to hear your feedback on this, so please comment, or contact me on facebook or twitter.
I’d also appreciate it if you “like” this post on Facebook or “+1″ it if you are on Google+.

iTunes top 10 BPM analysis: Running Playlist 2011-12-07

The iTunes top 10 never stops surprising me. This week, we don’t really have any new songs that are good for a running playlist, but we do have some news worth mentioning.

First, we have another country song in the list Dirt Road Anthem. While I’m a big fan of country music, I don’t really like this one since I’m not sure what the rap (is that what he’s trying to do?) parts really work. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for exploring new styles and mashing up music, but this one just doesn’t work.

We also have a couple of new quiet songs,Skyscraper and Good Life,  that aren’t bad, but not high enough BPM for a running playlist.

And now, here’s the list, I would love to hear your feedback on this, so please comment, or contact me on facebook or twitter.

iTunes top 10 BPM analysis: Running Playlist 2011-28-06

Wow! Can you believe it’s the end of June already?! Time really flies I guess, and once again it’s time for another running playlist post about the top 10 songs on iTunes.

I’m always happy when country music enters the top 10 on iTunes, I like country and even though these songs are usually low BPM, it’s still nice to have a change in pace from the pop and hip-hop that’s usually there (nothing wrong with pop or hip-hop, I just like some diversity every now and then…)

I’ve been doing these lists for a while, and I noticed that in many cases, new singles appear on iTunes only and take a while to make it to other online stores. I’m sure it has something to do with all sorts of music industry contracts and stuff, but it really creates a monopoly of music for Apple and as much as I like Apple, I think the market would do better with some competition (like the free and $0.69 songs on Amazon).

Anyway…

iTunes top 10 BPM analysis: Running Playlist 2011-21-06

We’re back with another iTunes top 10 analysis for running playlist.
This week, we have a few new songs in the top 10. First, Katy Perry is out with another really stupid song which I’m sure I’ll be humming in the shower at some point after it plays 100000 times on the radio and gets engraved in my brain. We also have Tonight Tonight, which is catchy but not really special and then we have Lighters [Explicit]. I’m still on the fence with this one. It has a lot of elements that I like and that remind me of some eminem songs, but it gets annoying at times, so we’ll see.

iTunes top 10 BPM analysis: Running Playlist 2011-01-06

We’re finally done with Glee, and I can go back to posting the running playlist iTunes update on Wednesdays without having to see 3 or 4 Glee songs in the list. As much as I used to like Glee, it’s starting to get ridiculous and it seems like they’re no longer making much of an effort to keep the story flowing in a semi logical way and just tie it together enough to make sure they can include as many songs as possible to sell on iTunes.

Anyway, this week’s top 10 is pretty stable compared to last week’s. There are only 2 new songs and I’m glad to see that Scotty’s song from American Idol is still on the top 10 list.

iTunes top 10 BPM analysis: Running Playlist 2011-24-05

Another week on running playlist and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” is finally out! We also survived the end of the world (this time at least), so it’s good news all around. Except for the annoying “Judas”, it’s a pretty good album and I’m sure we’ll be hearing it ad-nauseum on every radio station in the country.

This week’s iTunes top 10 list has a couple of new Hip-Hop songs. I’m On One [Explicit] which I don’t like that much and is not good for a running playlist due to low BPM, and Super Bass [Explicit] which is pretty good, and is over 120 BPM, so it will work on a running playlist.

iTunes top 10 BPM analysis: Running Playlist 2011-10-05

This week is a pretty good week for running playlists on the iTunes top 10.
We have 3 new songs, Hair, Party Rock Anthem, Dirty Dancer and all of them are over 120 BPM.

Lady Gaga’s new song is especially interesting, since she sounds a little bit like Bonnie Tyler in that, which is a good thing…

As usual, I’ve bolded the songs that would work well in a running playlist.

And now, here’s the list, I would love to hear your feedback on this, so please comment, or contact me on facebook or twitter.
