An Absolutely Free Set Of Rock Running Music For Your Running Playlist

rock running playlist

I have a lot of running music on my running playlist most times, so when I found this gem, I immediately downloaded all the songs.
The album I’m showcasing today is a sampler of new songs from the Sxsw festival in Austin, TX. It includes songs from bands you won’t usually hear on the radio, and I thought I’d share these so we can all learn about some new cutting edge music.

The list is free on amazon.com (at least when this post was written), but you can also download it from iTunes as well.
I encourage you to explore the whole list, but I included a sample of the higher BPM 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.
I’d also appreciate it if you “like” this post on Facebook or “+1″ it if you are on Google+.

Running Playlist – Learn While You Run

It’s been a few weeks now and the fall TV season is in full swing. It seems like there are music shows on every channel ranging from shows like x-factor which has a lot of flare and hype to the sing off, which isn’t as hyped but still has good music. I may do a TV running playlist soon, let me know if you want me to put one together.

Speaking of TV shows, when I first saw Scotty McCreery I knew he’d be successful and now, his first album Clear As Day is out and it sounds like it was entirely written for the radio. Most of the songs are very light and easy to listen to and would be very successful on the radio.

Scotty isn’t as poetically sophisticated as the country veterans, but if he doesn’t mess things up for himself, he’s going to have a huge career.

Anyway, to the subject of today’s running playlist.

What if I told you that you could be getting an Ivy League education, for free, while your run?
I think I mentioned this in the past, but I’ve been listening to a lot of iTunes U classes lately while I run and I think they’re great!

On long runs, there’s only so much music you can listen to without needing a break, especially on long slow runs. So enter iTunes U.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with iTunes U, it’s basically a free service iTunes has that shares classes from the top universities in the country (and maybe even the world). There are actual classes that were recorded at places like Harvard, Yale, Cornell, and even Stanford (which is not Ivy League, but definitely should be on this list) and they are all free to download.

Many classes are videos, which are great if you’re running on a treadmill, but when I run outside I download the audio classes and just listen to one or two lessons while I run.

So far, I’ve taken two full semesters of history classes at Brown and Yale and a computer science class at Stanford and I love the fact that I can get access to the amazing minds that teach these classes, for free and without having to attend those universities and all while I run.

One tip, if you run in a noisy area, you may want to do a volume adjustment in iTunes to the class files (right click the class in iTunes, go to “Get Info” and go to “options”) to adjust the volume because sometimes the recording volume isn’t as loud as I like it.

here are some classes I liked:

Yale Environmental politics and Law

Yale US History

Brown – From Israelite to Jew

Harvard – Lincoln

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.

Running Playlist: Playlist of the week: Christian Music: 09-17-2010

I am by no means a devout Christian, but I do definitely understand how spirituality and religion fit into running.

There have been many occasions when I was overwhelmed by the feeling of being inspired (“inspired” = “in spirit”), especially on early morning runs when the world is quiet and the sun is just coming up and shining a golden light on the world, and many others where I felt so low that I searched my spiritual reserves for strength.

During those times, music helped me get break through my barriers and get to the spiritual level I was searching for.

Below is a running playlist of some inspirational songs and while you can definitely find inspiration in songs like “eye of the tiger”, these songs offer something extra.

I started the running playlist out with an easy song to run with, i.e. low BPM, for a warm up and then started the real run.
The playlist is an hour long, and ends with a low BPM song to help you cool down.

And now, here’s the list
