Running to Apo: The Soundtrack

One can have grand dreams to motivate one to run, but when it comes to putting one foot in front of the other, I NEED music to push me. I suspect a lot of other runners feel the same. 

If I could only suggest you add one new song to your running playlist, it would be this one, after you see this video for it:

So here is my current Running Playlist in alphabetical order (Beats Per Minute*):

The Stinger - King Cobb Steelie (110)
Tightrope - Janelle Monae (168)
To Get Down - Timo Maas (113)

*I used this online tool for calculating the BPM for these songs.

Some of the songs feel a lot faster. I guess a heavy beat or crunchy guitars can push one in addition to the tempo.

Over the coming months I'll probably take some off that aren't quite cutting it and add others as I come across them.

What is on your playlist that you can't run without?
