When I started running, I used playlists on my iPhone. As runs got longer or I got tired of creating playlists I opted to switch to Pandora. I really like the ability to create a custom station based around a band I like. The great thing about Pandora is that the stations don’t just play the song of the artist I built it around. It also adds in songs from similar artists. Every once in a while when I am out running and kind of get to the point where I am distracted or am tired nearing the end of the run, a song will come on that will kind of rejuvenate me. Here are the top 5 songs that have come on at just the right moment and kicked me up a gear….
- Cake: The Distance
- Johnny Cash: Ive Been Everywhere
- Aesop Rock: None Shall Pass
- Ram Jam: Black Betty
- The Ramones: Blitzkrieg Bop
