    I had Oingo Boingo's "No One Lives Forvever" in my Mp3 player at the gym today when I was on the treadmill and thought that it was one of the best songs to run to because the beat was almost in perfect time with my steps and the lyrics were pretty cool.

    Here's a short clip of the beginning.

    Anyone else have songs they think are perfect for running/jogging?

    Right now I have on my MP3 player:

    Barry White's Greatest Hits (Great to run to as well as other things)

    Red Hot Chili Pepper's Under The Bridge

    Some assorted Billy Idol

    Notorious and Girl's on Film by Duran Duran

    Some songs by John Mellencamp, including Jackie Brown (Jackie Brown is depressing lyrically, but has a good beat for running!)
