A Holly Jolly Running Playlist for Christmas with a gift for you

running playlist

Christmas is in the air and everywhere you can hear Christmas music playing, so of course, you can expect a Christmas running playlist from me as well.

I tried to keep this running playlist interesting and included some traditional holiday songs, some new songs and some of the funny holiday songs.

I wanted to give some back to my readers, so I included some free songs on this running playlist (free on amazon – can change anytime at their discretion) but you’ll have to “unwrap” them by going to amazon and checking which ones are free for yourself… :)

This playlist is 40 minutes long, and averages out at 144 BPM.

Have a great Christmas and a Happy new year and I’ll see you after my vacation!

And now, here’s the list:

Running Playlist: iTunes top 10 BPM analysis: 12-21-2010: Funniest song of the year

running playlist

Today’s iTunes top 10 list features several new songs. Unfortunately, none of them are really high in BPM so they are not great for a running playlist.
6 Foot 7 Foot comes in at number 1, and then we have a couple more, Coming Home and I Just Had Sex [Explicit] closing the bottom of the list.

When I first saw the I Just Had Sex [Explicit] title, I thought “Wow, this looks like a pretty explicit song”, I then listened to the lyrics, and I don’t know if this is intentional or not, but this song probably qualifies as the funniest song for 2010. I’m assuming the target market for this song are people with the sense of humor of a 13 year old boy, so pretty much every male on the planet…

With Lyrics like “I cried the whole time – Doesn’t matter – Had sex” and “It was the best 30 seconds of my life”, you gotta laugh…

Anyway, as usual, I’ve bolded the songs that are good for a running playlist.
And now, here’s the list:

Name Time Artist BPM Album Genre Get it on iTunes Get it on Amazon.com

Running Playlist: iTunes top 10 BPM analysis: 12-14-2010

running playlist

Only two weeks to go until Christmas, and surprisingly, there are no new holiday singles in the iTunes top 10. This week, the iTunes top 10 list is almost identical to last week’s list, except for That’s All She Wrote (Feat. Eminem) [Explicit], which has a low BPM and is not good for a running playlist.

On the other hand, the one hour long commercial, sorry, i meant “episode” of Glee for Christmas worked, and the Glee Christmas album has been on the top 10 albums since the show aired. Good for them… Hopefully the story line for that show gets better soon, because it’s starting to look like one of those infomercials for music compilations.

As usual, I’ve bolded the songs that are good for a running playlist.
And now, here’s the list:

Name Time Artist BPM Album Genre Get it on iTunes Get it on Amazon.com
Firework 03:47 Katy Perry 125 Teenage Dream Pop Firework - Teenage Dream (Deluxe Edition) Firework
Grenade 03:42 Bruno Mars 112 Doo-Wops & Hooligans Pop Grenade - Doo-Wops & Hooligans (Deluxe Version) Grenade

Running Playlist AudioFuel Review

Running playlist

I recently discovered a great new running playlist and music related service I thought I’d share.
The service is called AudioFuel (http://www.audiofuel.co.uk), and they provide a pre-recorded full lenght BPM optimized workout, that not only gives you music with the correct BPM for your workout, but also provides you with audio coaching and motivation during the workout.

Audio Fuel’s music is basically electronic music and since they create their own music, they can pinpoint the exact BPM that you need to be at depending on the workout you are planning.

For a while now, I’ve been looking for a good interval training program and AudioFuel has a bunch of those so i decided to give it a try.
First, I chose a program called, “Yelling Performance 3 Step Intervals 180 MAX”. I should have known that this would be a tough one just because it had the word “yelling” in the title (it’s actually the name of the coach recorded on the program, not really someone yelling at you but still…).
This program was too much for me, it started out just fine, with a good warm-up, but then the BPMs went up, and by the 2nd time they went to 180, I was completely wiped out.

This program is definitely not for beginners, but if you are a seasoned runner looking for a really good workout, this one is for you. I’m thinking it would be a good program for spinning as well, but I think AudioFuel has a separate section for that.

Next, I decided to go easy on myself, and tried a program called “Run Easy Vol 1_ The First Hour Continuous DJ Mix”, much better…
This wasn’t as relaxed of a run as I thought it would be, but it was much easier than the first program I tried, and didn’t leave me gasping for air at the end of it.

I was still looking for a good interval program, so I ended up trying another one called “Pyramid 180 MAX Interval Training”.
This was what I was looking for! A great interval program, that doesn’t knock the air out of you but gives you a powerful workout.

AudioFuel is delivered in Mp3 format, so it works on pretty much any device (I used it on my iPhone) and they also have a great selection of programs so you won’t get bored if you use their services.

One more thing that was really impressive about AudioFuel was the fact that unlike other so called “music by BPM” sites, who run a bunch of songs through software that gets about 50% of the BPM wrong, they were right on target with the BPM for their music. I manually tested their interval programs and timed their BPM and they were right on target every time.

Highly recommend you try this.

8 days of running playlist, Hanuka/Hanukkah/Chanukah edition playlist of the week

running playlist

Hanukkah (how do you spell this?) is upon us (it actually started a few days ago if I’m not mistaken) and I decided I wanted to assemble the finest songs for this holiday and create a running playlist for my Jewish friends. The problem is, that there are very few quality songs that can be used in a running playlist (and really, how much do you want to hear about dreidels while you are running… ;)

So I went out to seek advice from the wisest Jews of the land, and found my answer in the lyrics of Adam Sandler’s famous Hanukah song:

Chanukah is the festival of lights
Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights

So I decided to focus on the festival of lights part, and created a running playlist made up entirely of songs with the word “light” in them.

I also couldn’t help but include some traditional and non-traditional Hanukah songs in case you really want to hear a song about playing with your dreidel… (this last sentence sounds a bit like a bad euphemism, but I’ll let it go).

This playlist is 1:10 hours long, so you can work off some of the calories from those latkes you had last night.

Let this running playlist light your holiday and your heart. Happy Chanukah to my Jewish friends and now – the running playlist:

Running Playlist: iTunes top 10 BPM analysis: 11-23-2010

running playlist

This week’s iTunes top 10 list has pretty much the same songs we featured last week on running playlist except for a couple of changes:

First, we have an new entry by Bruno Mars, the pretty violent display of affection titled Grenade, and second, a new song from last week’s episode of Glee, Forget You.

Forget You actually indicates what could be a start of an interesting trend in music where we see a song from a TV show in the iTunes top 10 list every week. I’m going to track this and see if tonight’s episode leads to the same results.

I’m not saying anything about Katy Perry being at number 1….

As usual, I’ve bolded the songs that are good for a running playlist.
And now, here’s the list:

Name Time Artist BPM Album Genre Get it on iTunes Get it on Amazon.com

5K running playlist of the week: 10-21-2010

This week’s 5K list is a split running playlist. What this means is that for the first half of the run, you’ll be running relatively slowly with slower music at an average bpm of 112 BPM. Once the first half is done, the BPM picks up and your run gets much faster. The music goes from 112 average BPM to 157 average BPM, with a high at 172 BPM.

This list is also very fast. It’s only 35 minutes long and if you want your run to last for the duration of the list, you’ll have to run at a pace of 11:19 min/mile, which is not too slow at all.

You can also break this list apart and use the slow songs for a warm up if you’d like at the beginning of your own running playlist.

And now – the running playlist:
