Running Playlists

When I'm not running or writing,
I ride trains and drink coffee
(and break the rules)


When running (or exercising in general), a great playlist is a deal breaker: wanting to listen to a full playlist I love will make me run much longer. Also, great tunes take my mind off the actual work out, and it's the best (and most selfish) way to relax and clear my mind.

Please share some playlists or songs, as I'm always on the lookout for different music. I don't always need to listen to upbeat music to keep up my pace, just songs I like will do the trick. Here is a playlist I really like for running:

The Clean- Anything Could Happen
Superhumanoids- Geri
A Guy Called Gerald- Voodoo Ray
Small Black- Despicable Dogs
Onra- High Hopes
Discovery- Osaka Loop Line
Aphex Twin- Window Licker
Holy Ghost!- Hold My Breath
Ciccone Youth- Into the Groove(y)
Chapterhouse- Mesmerise
Ol' Dirty Bastard- Shimmy Shimmy Ya (I like my dirty rap)


It's long enough for a nice weeknight stroll around Shimokitazawa, and my new favourite place to run, Yoyogi Uehara.

I've only been running and writing lately. Can you tell? Maybe it's a good thing.
