Hi guys. I am doing c25k running program. Tomorrow I will be on week 6 day 3 and have my 25 minute run. I am looking for some new music to run to to help me get through it. As it is only fair to share, I currently enjoy running to the Black Eyed Peas "I Gotta Feeling" and the theme song to Rocky. (yes, I know it is cheesy but it works for me) :)

When I saw the title for your post I thought of the Black Eyed Peas song too. :thumbsup2
Good Luck on the C25K!

I have so many. I'm not sure I can pick a favorite. I love Rihanna, but could't pick one over another. Jazz Machine which is a latin song that I love, but can't think of the artist. Ironman by Black Sabbath. And, Drop It On Me by Ricky Martin. I love to dance, so my music I dance to inspires me to run faster!:banana:

I will Survive! Gloria Gainer, that's the one I needed for the 20 minute run.

My favorite is Right Now by Van Halen. Another good one is I Can go the Distance from the Hercules soundtrack.

Another vote for both of these songs, and I also like Break my stride covered by Ace of Base, or almost anything by Ace of Base. The Spectromagic theme is always good, too! :dance3:

I always set up a playlist before I start my c25k each night. Here is what I had on mine for tonight:

Stronger - Biggest Loser Power Mix
4 Minutes - Biggest Loser Power Mix
Bad Romance -Lady Gaga
Drink Up Me Hearties Yo Ho - Pirates of the Carribean at World's End. (It actually has very upbeat music, because of course it's pirates fighting. It's actually one of my favorite songs to run to.)
New Divide - Linkin Park
King of Pride Rock/Circle of Life (Reprise) - The Lion King Broadway Show. (Also very upbeat.)
Paranoid - Jonas Brothers. (I'm not sure if many adults like the Jonas Brothers, but I still find this and their other songs very upbeat and easy to run to.)
Fly with Me - Jonas Brothers
Jump - Glee Cast
Hate on Me - Glee Cast
Telephone - Lady Gaga

Hope that helps some!

My absolute favorite go-to song is Tubthumping by Chumba Wumba (the lyrics are..."I get knocked down, but I get up again, ain't nothing gonna keep me down...") You have probably heard the song but might not recognize the whacky title.

I also like "No one Left to Run With" by the Allman Brothers and, of course, "Born to Run" by Bruce Springsteen. If you need to pick up your pace, there are lots of Michael Jackson songs that have the right beat. I also use Katy Perry Hot n Cold.

I love these threads as I always get new ideas.

A fun topic! I always look forward to "It's My Life" coming up on my ipod. I also like a good dose of U2, "Where the Streets Have No Name" is an oldy but a goodie. For whatever reason, it gives me a little boost. My husband likes "Jump" by Van Halen and "ABC" by the Jackson 5. Have a great run!

I like "I Gotta Feeling" too! I also like "Boom Boom Pow" by the Black Eyed Peas, and just about any dance mix. I have some Lady Gaga and Rhianna dance mixes that are pretty fast and they keep me going. :)

I love Tubthumping! I think I'll find my old CD and add that one to my playlist.

One of my favorites to run to is the Doors' LA Woman.

The songs speeds up and slows down so I can do intervals, and at the end gets really fast so I can push myself.

I LOVE Melissa Ethridge's "I Run for Life"..that's my go to song when I really need inspiration.

I also like:

Stupid Girls and So What-Pink
Put a Ring on It and Halo-Beyonce
Losin' It-Eminem
Empire State of Mind-Jay-Z
Any song off the Pete Seeger Tribute album by Bruce Springsteen

and of course, my Disney songs. Nothing brings a smile to my face faster on a run than having the iPod shuffle up "Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life for Me" or "Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho"

My most recent "adds" are "Jive Talkin" by the Bee Gees, "Life is a Highway" by Rascal Flatts, and "Hot Girls in Love" by LoverBoy. I try to add/subtract songs to my workouts every few weeks, just to keep it fresh!

i have some BEP on my run playlists as well.

my current favorites are green day, mostly classics: brain stew, welcome to paradise and basket case.

i also bought a hip hop CD at target that has some good ones: walk this way (aerosmith, run dmc), jump around (house of pain), rump shaker (wreckx-n-effect) and bust a move (young mc). it has some other good ones on it too.

Let's Get It Started - Black Eyed Peas
Boom Boom Pow - Black Eyed Peas
Low - Flo Rida
Don't Cha - Pussycat Dolls
Hollaback Girl - Gwen Stefani
Sexy Back - Justin Timberlake
Right Round - Flo Rida
I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas
Sexy Chick - David Guetta
Tik Tok - KeSha

I think I am going to add Blah Blah Blah - KeSha just cracks me up.

We've got a lot in common.
I've got Boom Boom Pw, I gotta feeling, right round, tik tok, also.

I also have Imma Be,
How Low by Ludacris (I mentally sing How long can you go :laughing: )
Calle Ocho by Pitbull,
Hey Ya! by Outkast,
Get Low by Lil John,
and EXPLICIT WARNING - click click boom by Saliva and Let's Go by Trick Daddy. I don't love all the words, but I do love parts, and the beats. One line in Click Click Boom where it says "It's all inside of me..." it's very motivational. My DH calls these my football warm up songs. :laughing:

I've also had Rump Shaker, The Climb (tooooo slow), Country Grammar by Nellie, Walk it Out (too unmotivational, Down by Jay Sean, DAy and Night by Kid Cudi, All Summer Long by Kid Rock...

I've turned into the Pavlovian dog, though. Whenever I hear these songs on the radio, I want to run!
Looking at my playlist, one would think I am 14 instead of 34.
