So when I go for a run or take the dog for a walk I find it boring if I don't have any music to listen to. My current playlist is sadly lacking and I'm creating a new one but I need more! I don't listen to the radio or tv so I'm a bit out of touch, however in saying that, I guess I'm a bit old school anyway.

Looking at my current list, I guess I like dance, soul/funk, house (I'm an old school house fan), nu disco, although I don't pin myself down on genre. On my current list that gets me up the hill quickly is:

Jamiroquai - Little L
Daft Punk - Around the World
Soulsearcher - Cant get enough
Madison Avenue - Don't Call Me Baby
Joe Smooth- Promised Land
Moloko - Sing It Back
Ricki Lee - Cant Touch it
Armand Van Helden - You don't know me
Soul Central - Strings of Life (Stronger On My Own)
Soulshaker - Hypnotic Erotic Games
George Michael - Flawless
The Weekend - Michael Gray

And I'm even up for a bit of … Alcazar (lol, I know, I know)

Any more ideas to keep me from stopping and walking?

Most of these aren't your preferred genre but they've all got that driving cadence that helps motivate. The last one might seem out of left field but I think it's really nice for running.

Avicii ft. Aloe blacc - Wake me up


Hey Brother - Avicii ft.


Listen to your heart-dht


Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits


Till I Collapse - Eminem


Duel of the Fates - John Williams

Run DMC - Walk This Way
Rick James - Superfreak
Flock of Seagulls - I Ran
Santana - Smooth
Tom Petty - Runnin' Down a Dream

Yeah... Old School. LOL

At this rate I'll be running for hours and hours …

You didn't have it backed up?

I learned the hard way with that.

p.s. I almost put Kelis (yes that song) on my list but couldn't bring myself to do it, lol. Will definitely look at her new stuff.

Thanks again everyone!

well, my computer completely crapped out, i lost everything on it.. i couldn't get anything back.

and that's funny about kelis, cuz i actually d/led all her old stuff after she released

i kind of liked some of it.. of course i don't have it anymore..
the stuff she did with benassi and timo maas was really good
timo maas in general is really good.. but mostly just his albums loud and pictures..
his new stuff not so good
