musical advice

I am trying to put together a great running mix on my iPod and was wondering – what songs get your blood pumping? I want about 90 minutes of music….and I’ll give anything a shot at least once. I’m not a big fan of most hip-hop, but anything else would be welcome. As a view into my eclectic musical nature, when I do a Party Mix on iTunes, the top 10 are Loretta Lynn, Magnetic Fields, Iron & Wine, Cake, Queen, Morphine, Blondie, Mos Def, Stuart Davis and Green Day.

  1. I used to work out to the Romeo+Juliet soundtrack… some of the best on there are Pretty Piece Of Flesh – One Inch Punch, You And Me Song – The Wannadies, and To You I Bestow – Mundy. 🙂

  2. Panic! At The Disco ” Lying is the most fun… ” and ” I Write Sins” are two of my FAVORITE running songs, “Dirty” by Christina Aguillera.

  3. I would suggest anything off of the new Swivek CD darkness + light – http://www.flexiblerecords.com (though I know you have a copy)..
