New tunes

Okay it is time for some new tunes again. I have some really long runs coming up and the Ragnar Del Sol relay. I need some good stuff to get me through.
Share your latest and greatest!

This isn't a new tune but I like it. Todd Rungren's Bang on the Drum All Day. What I really like is that he starts by yelling "Are you ready?" It always makes me yell back "YES!" and pick up my pace a bit. And the beat is good for running. This always rejuvenates me!

I am having trouble with your links such as best running songs. It just takes me to the go daddy website. Any help? I need some good running music!

I just ran my first half marathon, and my brother made me a mix of great songs. Some that really helped...Dangerous-Akon, a bunch of Justin Timberlake,Die Trying-Cee-Lo, Disco Inferno-50 Cent,Halo-Beyonce,SweetDreams Beyonc,Where is the Love and Meet Me Halfway-Black Eyed Peas,Stronger-Kanye West, Closer-NeYo, World Hold On-Bob Sinclair among others. I had no idea how important my music would be for me to get through and feel good. I just started listening to hip hop when I started training and the 2 go hand in hand for me now. Good luck.

I just downloaded the at&t olympics soundtrack. There are some pretty good songs there. Go to and check it out.
