Running Music

I desperately need to refresh some of my running music.  It has become worse than stale, does that make it mold?  Anyway, what are your favorite couple (or more) songs that when they come on you smile (or at least stop frowning) and often replay them?

I'll give you a few of mine (in no particular order).

Florence and the Machines - Dog Days Are Over. Not sure why I like this song, but it is catchy.

Nickelback - Feelin' Way Too Damn Good.  I like when this song comes on during a good run that feels like something has got to go wrong because 10 miles shouldn't feel this good.  I know that's not the song is about, but when I'm out running 10 miles, I'm not doing that :-).

Disturbed - Indestructible. This is the only song I have from them, but when I'm struggling on a long run, this hits the spot.

Smashing Pumpkins - Bullet With Butterfly Wings.  The world is a vamire is enough said.

Pearl Jam - World Wide Suicide. I love Pearl Jam, this one has a good beat for running, but many others do too.

I love music, so any non-running suggestions are welcome too.  Oh, and if I did one of those tell me about yourself posts, I like music would be one of the items :-).

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I love Eminem's music for running, not sure that's your thing. "Lose Yourself", in particular, is a great running song.

"Remember the Name" by Fort Minor is great too.

"Mercy" by Duffy always makes me smile because generally when it comes on I am wanting to die (remembering that I'm a big baby when it comes to running).

"Get Rhythm" by Johnny Cash

Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Land of Confusion by Disturbed
Bodies by Drowning pool
pretty much anything by Rage Against the Machine.
That should get you started.
