Gettin’ Yer Workout On, Pt. 2
Well folks, the list so far is an interesting one!
From just that one post yesterday, we have lots of Tragically Hip, as well as Michael Jackson, Metallica, Motorhead, Paul Weller, John Mayall And The Bluesbreakers, Naughty By Nature, Otis Redding, the Contours, the Surfaris, Beck, Survivor (but not Eye Of The Tiger, a close call), David Coverdale, and David Bowie. I put Dio on there for good measure.
Whew! Canadian rock, metal, pop, old school hip hop, blues, oldies, classic rock, “alternative” stuff…
This list is really varied!
Well, I’ve been thinking about it through the day, today, and I would like to add a couple:
I definitely want to add Phil Collins’ Hang in Long Enough, from the …But Seriously album. I love that whole album, actually, and would just add it to my player as a whole, but since we’re going for a mix here, that song gets the motivating job done, both musically and lyrically.
I would also add Eminem’s Lose Yourself. I found it interesting that he appeared a couple of times in that livestrong list I found and posted yesterday, but not for this song.
Twisted Sister’s We’re Not Gonna Take It always amuses me and has a great beat (and its message, of course). I’d add that one, probably.
There are a couple of obvious ones, like Queen’s We Are The Champions, or Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’. I dunno, they’re almost too easy. Like Springsteen’s Born To Run. Great tune, still…
Man, this is fun. I Googled it and found a site that claims to list 378+ of the best songs for running. It was tempting to scan through it, but I think I’d rather just do this off the top of my head, from my own collection, and with all of your excellent sugestions too.
So if you can think of any more, folks, or if you’ve yet to respond and you’ve got the best one yet burning a hole in your brain and you just gotta share it, drop it in the comments and we’ll push this project through the wall!
Let’s give ‘er!
