Running Playlist: Amazon top 10 BPM analysis: 09-08-2010

Today’s amazon top 10 has one new entrant F**k You [Explicit] at number 4. It’s actually a pretty good song for a running playlist if you can put up with some foul language.

I’m also glad to see Kary Perry continuing to drop lower and lower on the list. She still has 2 songs though, Teenage Dreamand California Gurls, so hopefully in a few weeks we won’t have to hear her again.

On a sad note, Taylor Swift dropped out of the top 10 with Mine, but hopefully it will be back very soon despite the fact it sounds just like “Love Story

I’ve bolded the songs that would make the cut for a running playlist.

Running Playlist: App review of the week: SynchStep:

running playlist

I had the pleasure of communicating with Greg from SynchStep the other day and he offered to let me test the beta for his new app called… you guessed it, SynchStep.

What it does:
Synchstep has an interesting premise. It calculates your pace while you run (I’m assuming using the iPhone accelerometer movements) and plays songs that match your pace from your iTunes library. What a great idea!

I took the app with me this weekend on my long run, and played around with it, this is what I found.

The bad:
The app I tested was a beta, so I’m sure a lot of the issues I found would be fixed by the time it’s released into the iTunes store.

First, when it scans your songs on your iPhone, it makes the same mistakes most automated BPM analyzers make when they scan songs.

Some examples include:

Born To Run shows as 111 instead of the 146 BPM that it really is
Rockin’ Robin shows as 174 BPM instead of 148 BPM
Change Your Mind shows as 74 BPM which would make it a very bad song for a running playlist except that it is really 147 BPM and a pretty good song to run to.

This is one more example of why I manually test every song on this site to get actual BPM and I don’t rely on automated software do to it. More time consuming, definitely, but I get the right results almost every time…
Anyway, back to the app.

You can always fix these BPM errors manually, so that’s not really a problem.
Once you start running you need to make sure you lock your iPhone using the app “lock” button, not the phone lock, which is a bit confusing.
I would have also liked to see a progress bar showing how far I am into the song and some album art in case I want to check what I’m listening to while I’m on the move and can’t fiddle with unlocking the phone and messing with menus.

One more issue I had with the app was that I guess I didn’t add enough songs to the app library, so I only had one song at 174 BPM, which is around where I usually run, and after listening to rockin’ robin for the 3rd time, I had to manually change songs.

The good:
The app does a great job at detecting your pace. I played around with my pace to see how the app reacts, and it caught the changes every time.
I also like the fact that you can manually set the app to a bpm you want to run in and it will play the songs that match that bpm for you. Very nice feature.

Overall, I think this is a pretty good app to have, it definitely needs some work, but has lots of potential to be a great app. Gets it while it’s still cheap…

SynchStep

Update:
I spoke to Greg about some of the issues mentioned here and it looks like a couple of things about the app need an update:
1. The lock issue: this is actually a limitation imposed on app developers by apple, so there really is no choice.
2. There is a free companion desktop app on the site that will fill in all the tempos for all of your songs so you don’t have any issues with not having enough songs.

Running Playlist: Playlist of the week: 09-03-2010

Running Playlist

It’s Friday again and it’s time for the running playlist of the week!

I’m going to be working you hard this week with this playlist.

I built this playlist to pretty much keep you running fast for the entire run with songs with a BPM of 120-150 and even a couple really fast ones at the end going up to 170.

I’m a gentle and compassionate person though, so I put in a couple of lower BPM songs in the middle of this running playlist so you can catch your breath.

This playlist is just a bit longer than an hour (1:02:51 to be exact), so it should give you a good workout.

Running Playlist: 10K Playlist of the week: 09-02-2010

running playlist

This week’s 10k running playlist is an interesting one. It has a variety of genres ranging from rock, to heavy metal, to country, to alternative, so you definitely won’t be bored on your jog.

We start out slow, almost gloomy with some lower BPM music. This will allow you to start out slowly and not burn out half way through the run.

After the first few songs, the BPM picks up and averages at around 135.
Toward the end of the run, the BPM average goes up to 154 and that takes you to the finish at a very fast pace.

This list is 1:46:53 long, so it’s enough for even the slowest runner (pace for this list is over 17min/mile).
If you are faster, you might want to cut this running playlist down and remove some songs so you don’t miss out on the fast ending.

And now, the list:

Running Playlist: Amazon top 10 BPM analysis: 09-01-2010

We have a much better top 10 list this week at Amazon.

Unfortunately, we still have 2 Katy Perry songs in the top 10, but they are losing ground and dropping in the rankings, so there is some hope for a Kary Perry free list sometime in the future.

We also have the new Taylor Swift song, Mine, at number 8, which is one of my favorite new songs and a new permanent resident in my personal running playlist.

Another great new entrant is Stuck Like Glue. Unfortunatelly, it’s not a great song to add to a running playlist because of its low BPM, but it’s still a fun song to listen to.

I’ve bolded the songs that would make the cut for a jogging playlist.

Here’s the list:

Name Time Artist BPM Album Genre Get it on Amazon.com Get it on iTunes
Dynamite 03:23 Talo Cruz 117 Rokstarr Pop Dynamite Dynamite
Love the Way You Lie (feat. Rihanna) 04:43 Eminem 92 Recovery Hip Hop/Rap. Hardcore Rap, Rap Love The Way You Lie (Feat. Rihanna) Love

Running Playlist: iTunes top 10 BPM analysis: 08-31-2010

We have some strong new entrants to the top 10 this week.

Unfortunatelly, Katy Perry is still in number 1 with Teenage Dream, but there is still some hope left in the world sinc Taylor Swift made it in with Mine at number 9.

We also got a new good song for a running playlist from Ke$ha, Take It Off, at number 6. Just want to mention that this is not a comment on the musical quality of the song, just that it would work in a running playlist… enough said…

I’ve bolded the songs that would make the cut for a running playlist.
