Top Ten Songs for Running

Listing of the top ten songs to put on your ipod and play when you feel like going for a run, or if your already a runner to give you extra motivation.

The Top Ten

Welcome to the Jungle - Guns N Roses

The whole album makes a great running track list. "Paradise City" for the peak of your run.

Axl: You know where you are, you're in the jungle baby, you're gonna die!
Me: Well, I gonna die so I'm running from the jungle

This track is good when you want to speed up your running.

great song for running in the wild

Gonna Fly Now - Bill Conti
Going the Distance - Bill Conti
Clocks - Coldplay

Laugh out loud I love how there are two Coldplay songs in the Top 10. No, but seriously, the melody on Clocks will make you want to keep running forever and ever.

The lyrics have no correlation with running; however, I guarantee this song will motivate you to keep running.

Don't Stop Me Now - Queen
Don't Stop - The Loops of Fury
Para - Moby & The Loops of Fury
Need to Feel Loved - Reflekt
Ghosts N' Stuff - Deadmau5
Big Sky - John O'Callaghan

The Contenders

Mutherf***** of the Year - Mötley Crüe

Great song to run...

Radar Love - Golden Earring
Get Large - Tribeqa
Hit the Road Jack - Ray Charles
Where the Streets Have No Name - U2

This is my all-time favorite song and a great running song. Come on - the first line is "I wanna run! "

This track is great to be the first one played, it's ideal if you want to gradually build your stride.

Glad other people love listening to this song while running. Even though I don't listen to music while running. Good runners don't do that. They stay focused and push

Amazing song! U2 is the best rock group ever!

Reason to Believe - Dashboard Confessional

This track is great to play when you've nearly reached your physical limit, and are contemplating quitting. A great finishing track.

Dream On - Aerosmith

This track has always made me want to run just the feeling of this song. It gives the feeling you can overcome anything.

Creeping Death - Metallica

Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne

Sleep Now in the Fire - Rage Against the Machine
Kelly Clarkson - My Life Would Suck Without You

This song has the perfect driving beat to run to. One of my absolute favorites.
