    Default Jogging playlist

    Hello, all!
    For those of you who jog, do you listen to Classical Music as you run?
    If you do, it would be interesting to learn what pieces are in your playlist.
    Some of mine are:
    Copland: Fanfare for the Common Man
    Beethoven: Seventh Symphony, Mvmt 4
    Holst: Jupiter and Mars
    Ravel: Bolero
    Obviously needs work, so, in an attempt to get help from experts, searched this forum {as well as a Google Talk Classical search} and found a couple good, if not brilliant, selections but interested in seeing more.
    Thank you for your time!

    Just find music you enjoy listening to and put it on you iPod (or whatever). Doesn't have to be specifically "music to run by."

    (If there's a piece about Phidippides, that would be appropriate -- but you'd have to die at the end. :-) )

    for me to be honest, classical music doesn't mix well with jogging... I'd go with some pop/dance/techno/maybe some faster rock, etc

    Not really a new concept, working out or running/jogging to Classical Music.

    If you're looking for suggestions, here's some:

    Georges Bizet - Prelude to Act I from Carmen
    J.S. Bach - Brandenburg Concerto no. 3, 1st mvt
    Gioachino Rossini - Overture from William Tell
    Johann Strauss - Auf Der Jagd
    Aram Khachaturian - Sabre Dance

    Sam Fonteyn - 'Pop Looks Bach'
    Ludwig Van Beethoven - Egmont Overture
    John Adams - Roadrunner
    Mozart - Symphony no. 25, 1st mvt
    Vangelis - Chariots Of Fire


    There's also the entire "Hooked On . . . " brand of music, which has a healthy collection of Classical Music set to a Disco beat.

    I have been running for over 50 years and the only type of music that never really worked for me was classical music. For one, the dynamic range is too great and the quiet passages get lost in road noise (or my huffin' and puffin'). For another, classical music sounds like ***** through the tiny headphones that I use for running. After many different attempts at amusing myself while running, I have recently (last few years) been listening to audiobooks as I never find enough time to read. YMMV.

    Back in my running days, I didn't listen to music as such but did let music 'play' in my head. I found Grainger's Handel in the Strand was a good pace-setter. Unsurprising, as Percy G was a keen runner.
