Mile Posts: Update Your Playlist With 10 Songs That Have Run in the Lyrics

Dorothy found 10 great run themed songs to add to your playlist.

I Run This Body - grey

Just hearing the word run or running in a song while I’m running gives me a little extra pep in my step…..here are some RUN songs to add to your running playlist!

1. Jay Z featuring Rihanna & Kanye West – Run This Town

Only thing that’s on my mind
Is who’s gonna run this town tonight…
Is who’s gonna run this town tonight…
We gonna run this town

2. Bruce Springsteen – Born To Run

Oh honey, tramps like us
baby we were born to run

3. Antebellum – Compass

So let your heart, sweet heart
Be your compass when you’re lost
And you should follow it wherever it may go
When it’s all said and done
You can walk instead of run

4. Ben Kweller – Run

Over hill
Over dams
I run with you
If it works
If it fails
I run with you

5. Flo Rida – Run

I wanna run to you, I wanna, I wanna, I
I wanna run to you, I wanna, I wanna, I
I wanna get you alone so we can do something wrong
I wanna run to you, I wanna, I wanna

6. Better Than Ezra – Desperately Wanting

I remember running through the wet grass
and falling a step behind
Both of us never tiring
Desperately Wanting.

7. Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers – Runnin’ Down A Dream

Yeah runnin’ down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin’ on a mystery, goin’ wherever it leads
Runnin’ down a dream

8. Collective Soul – Run  

Have I got a long way to run
Have I got a long way to run
Yeah, I run
Have I got a long way to run
Yeah, I run

9. Beyoncé – Run The World {check out the Glee Cast version as well}

Who run the world? Girls!

10. George Straight – Run {watch Taylor Swift sing it to George Straight HERE}

Baby run, cut a path across the blue skies
Straight in a straight line
You can’t get here fast enough

Find a truck and fire it up
Lean on the gas and off the clutch
Leave Dallas in the dust
I need you in a rush
So baby run

Baby run
Oh baby run
Baby run
