Ready to rock your next running playlist? Check out these tunes from my Running Songs 2015 collection that make the miles fly by.
I love this one for shaking out my legs and waiting for an event to start. It’s upbeat with a heavy string bass and cool instrumental vibe.
“Come Get It Bae”
Everything about this song is urging you forward! I love the clapping – it makes me feel like I’m getting applause from more than just my thighs.
“On the Run” [ft. Mos Def & M.O.P.]
Feel your chest puff out with pride. Are you from the “streets without mercy, nights without silence”? When this song is on, you’ll feel like you are. Feel big and bulletproof.
“Bout to Get Ugly” [ft. Rhymefest & Anthony Hamilton]
Yes! Everybody loves you. You’re the new guy from out of town, killin’ it at a party “with the pretty Puerto Rican girls with brown hair. I know it’s everyday for you, I ain’t from round here!”
“Feel Right” [ft. Mystikal]
These lyrics are like the a boxer’s little quick-feet dance. Let the humor lighten your load and make you feel good! It’s antagonistic smack talk at its funniest, with a feel-good refrain about your whole hood rocking it all night.
With a great driving beat driving beat cooled by falsetto vocals and lyrics about “gotta keep on runnin’, runnin’,” this one is a slam dunk.
“Get Ur Freak On”
It’s time for some vintage Missy Misdemean, puttin’ it down like she invented swagger. Is it hot out? This song is so on point it’ll send chills down your neck.
“Everything is Everything”
Sore feet? Put those struggles in perspective and vibe off the power of Lauryn’s words with a sound that’s easy on the ears.
“Born to Get Wild” [ft. will.i.am]
This dance anthem with a bouncy techno beat is perfect for getting amped in the crowd at a race – or bringing that vibe along with you on your own run.
Steve Aoki, Chris Lake & Tujamo
“Delirious (boneless)” [ft. Kid Ink]
The big opening will get your heart pumping, and lyrics about “Can’t nobody stop us, we gone delirious” might as well be about your runner’s high.
“Free the Madness” [ft. Machine Gun Kelly]
A driving techno beat to keep your kick strong, lyrics with a hard edge and a message about living in the moment.
Far East Movement
“Like A G6”
Effortless inebriated excess? Yes, thank you. Listen to this one at the end of your run and drink in the youthful conviction that you’re the coolest.
