Songs About Running

If you're looking to load up your play list with songs that are about running, instead of just songs you like, check out these lists for some guidance:

Songs with the word run or walk in the title.

Best songs about running.

Another list of songs with the word run or walk in the title.

Weirdly, there seem to be several Iron Maiden songs that fit into this category. "Run to the Hills" "Run Silent, Run Deep" "These Colours Don't Run" "Running Free" "The Lonliness of the Long Distance Runner"Iron Maiden, album cover

My brother was a HUGE Iron Maiden fan when he was in high school. I hated them. Don't know if I ever listened, though. I was mostly judging them by their scary album covers. He had posters all over his room and they freaked me out. Not that I'm an adult and am no longer scared, I think most of their songs would give me a great jolt while running.

If' you're looking to expand with some new music, Spin magazine has a free download of a song called "Marathon Runner" '

Looking through these lists has made me want to make a comprehensive list of songs with run in the title.

UPDATE: Here is the list that I've compiled. Please add any songs you want in the comments and I will add them to the list.
