10 Songs For Runners
More often than not, when folks refer to running songs, they’re discussing the sound of a song—quick tempos, lively performances and the like. To complement these attributes, we’ve tried to compile a list of songs with lyrics that suit movement as well. To that end, the tracks below will propel you forward in both body and mind.
The list kicks off with a club collaboration about working toward a goal, and it closes out with a similarly-themed track from the newly re-christened Puff Daddy. In the middle, Katy Perry sings about walking on air and Walk the Moon urge you to put one foot in front of the other. Elsewhere, Jessie J has folks burning up, Major Lazer has folks running up, and Drake is holding on to energy. Whether you’re the sort of person who draws momentum from beats or words, this list has you covered. When you need inspiration, your tunes await below.
