Soundtracks To Make Running An Pleasurable Activity

By Frank Samford

If you have ever gone through a period of time where you run a lot, you know how great it feels.

I’ve gone in and out of this process through the years and didn’t’ realize until recently a great way to jumpstart the process.

But listening to certain albums makes it a breeze for me and it will do the same for you too. Here are some of my favorite albums to run to.

The Postal Service is a fantastic album to run with, as it keeps a consistent beat and has some words to distract you. I like how in “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight,” it speeds up in the middle of the song.

Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, by Phoenix is another great one. I don’t know why it took Phoenix so long to get popular in the US but this album rocks. Track 1, Lisztomania is probably my favorite track to start with on a run.

As I write this article, I sit listening to “Get Innocuous” by LCD Soundsystem. Just one amazing song of his to run to. Another great one is “All My Friends”. Clearly the key with all this is to find music with a great beat.

Any song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers seems to get me going, but some of the best ones to run to include “Breaking the Girl,” “Charlie,” and “Snow.” Oddly enough most of my favorite Red Hot Chili Peppers songs, like “Under the Bridge” and “Breaking the Girl” are too slow for me to run to.

Another great artist to run to would be Kanye West. You may not like the guy, but he is incredibly talented. Some of his best songs to run to include “Never Let Me Down” and “RoboCop.”

This author also frequently contributes articles regarding products like garden speakers and speaker wire.
