Hi music fans! As most of you know, I'm training for the NYC marathon this year and music helps me run better, get less bored, and it also helps me keep up the pace. I'm a slow runner, so I need songs in the 130-140 beats-per-minute range, interspersed I can throw in some faster paced songs (up to 160-180 bpm), and also some slower ones. For marathon playlists, I think they recommend you for the marathon to start fast paced, then slow down a bit the bpm, then increase again, and to avoid "dying" near the end, at the last mile or two, play some very upbeat songs. I prefer rock, but Latin, reggae, Middle Eastern, etc., it's all good as long as it's upbeat and within the beats per minute. No easy-listening of course. The music is supposed to pump you up without making you run too much faster than your usual pace, otherwise one may start out too strong and be too tired later on.

 

Do you accept the challenge? :-)

 

Suggesting songs is cool, but I'm lazy and I want you to do the work for me, if you compile a whole playlist it would even be better! Then I can buy the songs in iTunes and upload them to my iPod Nano.

 

Thanks in advance! I'll be thinking of all of you guys who suggested songs or made playlists. My running time for the marathon will be between 4:30 and 5 hours so I need MANY great songs!

i have no idea how many beats per minute this song is, but, it's faster than my last suggestion, ha ha!!  am i getting closer to the right speed?

 

i barely listen to rock, so i'll have to let others come up with good faster paced rock songs...

 

good marathon lyrics though...


//"Pumping up the volume, breaking down to the beat
Cruisin' through the west side
We'll be checkin' the scene
Boulevard is freakin' as I'm comin' up fast
I'll be burnin' rubber, you'll be kissin' my ass...."//

 

 

 

 

Yes! This is a great song for my playlist

Raise your glass.

Don't like the video to this, but the music is good.

How could i forget funk! Funk would be great too! Soul would be great too, but the fast paced kind!

I don't really like funk, but for fun here's some

 

 

lame video, but, once you get past first minute,  is okay, is song from my town to you.

 

 

Is this too slow?

 

Simply Red is a great band

Holding back the Years  is a great song.

A good song for running, with the right pace, that everybody knows so it can be used as an example is Billy Jean
Billy Jean is on the slow side too, but nice beat. Beat It is faster paced, I have those on my playlist already.

for your slow songs in the middle,

 is probably wayyyyyyyyy TOO slow,

but

the title is too irrisistable to not include, HA HA!!!

 

Cyndi Lauper's Girls just want to fun is a great song.

 

Sisters are doing it for themselves! Annie Lennox and Aretha Franklin.
