@Gemstone:  I use the Pandora app on my phone. I get tired of music quickly, and I’m too lazy to pirate songs and to cheap to buy them. As long as you have data coverage, it works really well!

@Gemstone: That picture makes me LOL.

When I run, I much prefer the tempo of a song to the lyrics or melody. It helps me keep pace and allows me to judge how long I’ll be running, which is a huge motivation for me. My suggestion is to find a song where the beat matches your pace, then plug it into jog.fm. They have huge lists of songs that are grouped by BPM (beats per minute), so you can find something that will keep you going for a while. This is how I’ve built my running playlists, and it’s really worked for me.

There’s a lot of really great up-tempo songs I love, but can’t run to them because the beats throw me off, or actually slow down my pace. 

Good luck!

@Gemstone:  I hate top 40 music, but it’s all I listen to when I work out. It’s catchy and upbeat and I do find myself singing along (much to my own dismay). I honestly just go on radio station websites and use their count down music as my playlists.
