Running Music

People! I'm interested in what kinds of music you listen to when running/otherwise exercise. Here's my current mix - my playlists don't really have an order (I kind of like not knowing what's coming up next), and all of them have:

  • A reasonably audible, consistent, and fast beat
  • Invokes a mood that encourages me not to stop exercising
  • Sounds/variety pleasing to my ears
The mix:
  • and_one-panzer_mensch.mp3
  • aneela-chori_chori.mp3
  • avi_toledano-hora.mp3
  • bad_religion-beyond_electric_dreams.mp3
  • cesium_137-atrophy.mp3

i counted them once; there are 100 of them.
I can't claim credit for "Run Lola Run" - was someone else's idea.

That "Antenna" cover is delightfully weird!
It's funny, I just have an ipod full of 700-800 songs I like, and set it on shuffle. If the song that comes up isn't exercise-appropriate, I skip it. Hard rock is especially good for a heavy lift, acoustic folk for stretching. Note that exercise usually means lifting, these days, and to prematurely "stop exercising" is not really an option.
