I get what you are saying. I most often listen to books... when I run to music I let the song 'carry me'. Fast songs and I am really cranking, quiet songs I go with the song. I like it all, it breaks up the run ... (I did not list any of my quiet songs.)

I can't run with music. As a dancer, I am driven to stay with the beat. If the music cadence is off, I struggle too much. Even if I were to sit down and deliberately create a playlist, an off day would mean my cadence was off... it actually induces more stress for me, really.

I've read lots of "running songs" lists. But I seem drawn to a different sort of music. Do you have a list of songs that may be a little "out of the box"?

Theme from Pirates of the Caribbean .... Soundtrack - It makes you r r run !!!! I Want Candy (Workout Mix).... Power Music America .... Neil Diamond Day-O-Banana Boat Song.... From Beetle Juice Soundtrack Main Themes from Jurassic Park .... John Williams Raggle Taggle Gypsy .... Celtic Thunder Chariots of Fire (This has to be on any list).... John Williams We Will Rock You.... Queen Bicycle Race.... Queen Dance of the Witches (From Witches of Eastwick).... John WIlliams Delirious .... Prince Dueling Banjos .... Eric Weissberg & Deliverance Ghost Riders in the Sky .... Johnny Cash Shout .... The Isley Brothers In the Mood .... Bette Midler
