  1. Love the idea weekly Top 10 lists. Here's mine:

    Pump it up - Elvis Costello
    Lose Yourself - Eminem
    Keep Your Head - The Ting Tings
    Clampdown - The Clash
    Age of Consent - New Order
    Marathon and not a Sprint - Camera Obscura
    It's Okay - The Kings
    Lasso - Phoenix
    You Got Yr Cherry Bomb - Spoon
    Getting Down - The Kills

    I just recently posted a few playlists w/ over 7 hrs of music for runners based on their running pace. The songs have a faster Beats Per Minute (BPM) so you don't subconsciously slow down to the beat of a song. It has a lot of alternative/indie bands, but also rock and some R&B... The Killers, Gorillaz, Coldplay, Kings of Leon, Kooks, Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Matchbox Twenty, Stones, The Police, etc. All songs are either inspirational, about running, or just fun.
