What Kind of Music Gets You Going? A Running Playlist for Inspiration

Music is a very powerful source for inspiration while running. It can help get you past challenges, help you go faster and help push you to new levels of performance. So the running playlist this week is going to be a little bit different. Instead of me talking about what music I want to share, I would like to hear from you.

I’d love to hear from you what songs you like to run with, what lyrics inspire you, and any stories that you’d like to share about your experience with music and running.

Please use the comments section below to share.

10K Running Playlist at 150 BPM

It’s Thursday again and it’s time for another high BPM running playlist to get you going for the weekend. This week, it’s a 150 BPM running playlist.

For some reason, this playlist ended up filling up with rock music from the 80′s and early 90′s, I’m not sure why, but I guess the 150 BPM range was popular back then (or maybe I just have a lot of songs from that era… :) I also managed to squeeze in not one but two(!) songs from the Top Gun soundtrack, so how about that!

This playlist is 1:13 minutes long, and averages at 154 BPM. It’s starting to get faster, so be careful and don’t overheat when you run this summer.

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.

A 4th of July Running Playlist for Independence Day

running playlist

The fourth of July is coming this weekend in the US (and I guess it’s coming in the rest of the world too…:) and that means that it’s Independence Day. So what better than a running playlist full of patriotic and inspiring songs to get you in the mood?

This week’s running playlist is made of songs that are about freedom, independence or … wait for it… fireworks! I made sure these are all songs with a BPM of over 120, so you can actually run to them, and also included some diversity, even though country is more dominant in this playlist than it usually is.

This running playlist averages out at 131 BPM and is 48 minutes long. So go for a run, then have a beer and watch some fireworks to celebrate the birth of the USA and I’ll see you next week!

If you have any suggestions for more freedom themed songs that would be good in a running playlist, please post them in the comments below (if the comments box still doesn’t work for you please use the facebook comments, thanks).

UPDATE: I finally fixed the site comments, so I’d love to hear your recommendations for songs about freedom, Independence, fireworks or any other 4th of July relevant songs!

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.

10K Running Playlist at 140 BPM 2011-06-24

Last time we did a 130 BPM 10k running playlist and guess what’s coming this week… That’s right! a 140 BPM 10k running playlist!

Before we get to the playlist i just wanted to apologize for the issues I’ve been having with my comments system. I don’t know why, but the theme i’m using on this site seems to be disabling the comments. If apologize anyone out there who knows how to solve this, I’d really appreciate the info. So for now, I’m using a Facebook comments system that seems to be working fine.

Anyway, back to running playlists…

This list is 1:17 hours long, so it should easily last for a good 10k and averages out at 143 BPM. We’re definitely starting to get faster…

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 2011-01-06

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.

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 2011-24-05

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.

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.

An Italian Running Playlist for the Milano Marathon

running playlist italy

My friends from @milanomarathon asked me a while back if I could put together a running playlist for their upcoming marathon. Of course, I don’t speak any Italian, nor am I familiar with the Italian music scene, but why should that stop me from trying, right?

Turns out that finding good Italian music with a high BPM is much harder than you might think….

When I started searching for Italian music, most of the stuff I got was the kind of music you hear in the background when you go to an Olive Garden (a cheesy US Italian chain restaurant – good food though, love their minestrone soup…). Obviously, not something you’d want to run with.

But after a few hours of work, I managed to get a pretty decent list of songs. I even found some that I liked for my personal running playlist (especially the Laura Pausin songs).

This list is 41 minutes long, not a marathon playlist by any means, but enough to give you a start, and it averages at 133 BPM. As I mentioned earlier, I don’t speak or understand Italian, so if these songs are offensive or too cheesy, I apologize in advance.

For those of you running the Milano marathon, buona fortuna!

Also, don’t forget to check out the running playlist iPhone app where you can get new songs and running playlists directly to your iPhone.

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.
