Wanted: New Running Jamz

by Meghann on April 6, 2011

Every runner’s dilemma

Screen shot 2011-04-06 at 9.29.21 AM.png

Updating the ole playlist.

I have a half marathon this weekend and need some new songs to jam to. (yes, I said ‘jam’ πŸ˜‰ )

Here were some suggestions I got from twitter:

  • The new Avril Song
  • Born This Way by Lady Gaga
  • Futuristic Lover – Kanye West & Katy Perry
  • Who Says by Selena Gomez
  • Till the World Ends – Britney Spears
  • S & M – Rhianna
  • Mean – Taylor Swift
  • On the Floor – J. Lo
  • Blow – Ke$ha
  • Atlantic – Midway State
  • Lupe Fiasco – The Show Goes On
  • Peacock – Katy Petty
  • Rolling in the Deep – Adele

Anyone have any good ones to add to the list? I’m looking for recent, fresh songs to get my legs moving..

Personally, I’ve been a fan of running to ‘The Lazy Song’ by Bruno Mars lately.

It inspires how the rest of the day will turn out after the run. πŸ˜‰

I took my old playlist for a run this morning and did 5 miles around the block. I took a few side streets to break the run up a little bit and welcomed the change in scenery.

After the run I made a delicious bowl of oats to refuel with.


In the mix:

1/3 cup Oats

1/2 cup Water

1/3 cup Almond Milk


Chia Seeds


Pinch of Salt




Almond Butter

1/2 Pear



Just for giggles:

I like running to Darius Rucker and Brad Paisley. Their songs are upbeat enough for running, plus I can sing along πŸ™‚

3 emily April 6, 2011 at 9:59 am

It’s not new, but it really is the best running song of all time – “My Dick” by Dirt Nasty. Just Google it. But if you’re offended, then I didn’t recommend it! πŸ™‚

5 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat April 6, 2011 at 9:59 am

I hope you like the Midway State song! Till the World Ends by Britney is also on my playlist right now. I’ve managed to find a clean remix of Pink’s F*ing Perfect on Youtube which is also pretty good.. not sure if it’s on iTunes but you could check!

I love any old GOOD Michael Jackson. Makes me want to run and dance at the same time! PYT is probably my fave. My other current repeat is Mike Posner “Please Don’t Go”. Hope that spices it up a little πŸ˜‰

12 Sarah April 6, 2011 at 10:04 am

It’s not very new but I always like listening to modest mouse, one offbeat songs has a good beat to it, I think it’s either float on or dashboard. I can’t remember but both are good. πŸ™‚

13 Angela April 6, 2011 at 10:04 am

Have you ever tried running to a soundtrack? I found out that TRON Legacy’s soundtrack by Daft Punk makes for a perfect run for me.
Angela recently posted..How my perception of American entertainment has changed

14 Jessica April 6, 2011 at 10:28 am

The social network’s soundtrack is really good, so is 127 hrs. I’m not sure how they would translate into running songs but neither have a lot of words so I imagine you could totally just get into the groove and do your thing to the beat. I like driving to them lol.

15 Meghann April 6, 2011 at 2:31 pm

I’ve run to Musical soundtracks before (Wicked, RENT, Spring Awakening, etc) but never a plain movie soundtrack. I’m not much of a music fan unless words are involved. πŸ™‚

16 Lauren April 6, 2011 at 10:04 am

Hollywood – Michael Jackson
Is Anybody Out There – Maroon 5
Stage Fright – Blake McGrath
The Rockafeller Skank – Fat Boy Slim [got me through that 16th kilometre]
Prom Queen – Lil Wayne -> one of my favorite running songs, strange!!
I Like It – Enrique Iglesias

I know. I was really shocked when I saw it. It was a funny commercial though – it takes place at a bridal shower and the bride receives 3 as presents. When she gets home she tells the groom whats she got and he’s like ‘Yes!’ And the acting was about as bad/ cheesy as you would expect πŸ™‚

23 Ali @ Ali on the Run April 6, 2011 at 10:06 am

37 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) April 6, 2011 at 10:24 am

39 Kaitlyn April 6, 2011 at 10:27 am

I really enjoy running to the song “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled. It was super motivating during my half this past weekend.

Other favorites:
DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love — Usher
Please Don’t Go — Mike Posner
Vertigo — U2
We Speak No Americano — Yolanda Be Cool & Dcup
Yeah 3X — Chris Brown

Also check out Girl Talk and Super Mash Bros — both really great to run to!

40 Kate April 6, 2011 at 10:32 am

Through & Through & Through by Joel Plaskett.
It’s more indie rock than Bruno Mars, but super fun and motivating.

41 Biz April 6, 2011 at 10:33 am

When S&M (Riri) or The Show Goes On (Lupe) come on towards the end of a run, they give me just the spark I need to finish strong. Highly, highly recommend those two!

43 Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday April 6, 2011 at 10:37 am

Marianas Trench – “All to Myself” and “Celebrity Status”

44 Faith @ lovelyascharged April 6, 2011 at 10:47 am

It’s definitely way more rock than any of your other choices, but if you can handle a little edginess, A Day to Remember All I Want is AWESOME!

I’m also really loving S&M by Rihanna, On the Floor by JLo, and ET by Kanye and Katy Perry. Glee has had some good songs pretty recently – I love their Thriller/Heads will Roll mashup and Animal.

46 Chelsea April 6, 2011 at 10:49 am

I always hear a song on the radio, and I’ll think this would be a great song for working out but then I forget it or forget who sings it! Thats why it is always easy to go with top 20 music. I do like Brittany’s new stuff.

I Don’t Wanna Care Right Now – Lupe Fiasco

I also heard the new Rhianna/Nicki Minaj sound this morning on the way to work and I think I need to add it to the playlist!

I will be at IronGirl too on Sunday. I’m pretty sure I’ll be too chicken to actually say hi if I see you though. Ha ha. So have a great race!

I’m kind of surprised that all of those are pop songs! You should look up “Float On” by Modest Mouse. Or “My Body” by Young the Giant.
Just added those two to my list! Also, anything GLEE! Their ‘Singing in the Rain’ mashup is one of my fav songs to run to!
Also-“Dog Days” by Florence and the Machine! It’s such a happy tune!

Glow- Madcon (this is ALWAYS the first song on my running playlists)
Silver Lining- Rilo Kiley
Major Tom – Shiny Toy Guns
Ready Steady Go – Paul Oakenfold
La Copa de Vida – Ricky Martin

and of course
The Dog Days are Over – Florence and the Machine (even if it’s from last summer)

I also really like bollywood, so I have great dance songs from different movies πŸ™‚ my current fav is Dance Pe Chance from Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (a FANTASTIC romantic comedy!!)

66 Alaina April 6, 2011 at 12:12 pm

The Show Goes On- Lupe Fiasco
Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) – Katy Perry
Coming Home- Dirty Money Ft. Skylar Grey
More (RedOne Remix) – Usher
Who Dat Girl – FloRida
Hit The Lights – Jay Sean ft. Lil Wayne

This may also sound what you hear at a bar on a Friday night… either way never fails to make me want to move my legs faster!

68 Lauren April 6, 2011 at 12:29 pm

These are all TOTAL guilty pleasure songs (as in I’m kind of ashamed to have them on my iPod), but they’re good for running…

Booty Bounce – Dev
What’s My Name – Rihanna
Burn it to the Ground – Nickelback
Diamond Eyes – Shinedown

And for something I’m not embarrassed to like…the entire Sleigh Bells’ CD is incredibly good for running!

Lately I’ve really been on a reggaeton kick, probably because I’ve been trying to improve my Spanish and because I’m so sick of all the overplayed songs on the radio nonstop. You really should check some of these songs out, and prepare to have your mind blown.

Some faves as of the past few weeks:
Si no le contesto (ft. Tony Dize, Zion, and Lennox) by Plan B
Danza Kuduro by Don Omar and Lucenzo
La Despedida by Daddy Yankee
Pose by Daddy Yankee
Nina bonita by Chino & Nacho
Es un secreto by Plan B

Enjoy =)

Time to update my list with some of these great suggestions!

I’m really loving The Cave by Mumford and Sons and ET by Kanye West and Katy Perry right now. (Is that the same as futuristic lover?)

If you’re a fan of mashups, basically anything by DJ Earworm (I saw a couple of people mention his United States of Pop–love them all), all available as MP3s through his site–but I also check out My favorites are always the ones that include songs I already know, and lots of the ones on the lists so far seem to show up!

Whenever I hear “You can get with this or you can get with that” it makes me smile thinking of the gangsta hamster Kia commercial…I mean, what is better on a run than some lil gangsta hamster smiles!?!?!!

Pink’s F*ckin Perfect right now…
Lady Antebellum American Honey or When you got a good thing
Kid Rock For the First Time In A Long Time
Rihanna S&M
Katy Perry Firework

Maybe those are some different ones for you to try out!
