Power songs

When I’m running every so often I need a bit of a pick me up – something to keep me going and that something is often a ‘power song’. Here are some of my favourites:

– Lana Del Rey – Born to Die

I love this song. Partly because of the lyrics at the start that are very apt when running – “Feet don’t fail me now. Take me to the finish line.” and partly because I do love her haunting voice.

– Safri Duo – Played Alive This is just an absolute belter of a tune. That is all!

– Lilly Allen – The Fear

I’m not sure why, but this song got me through the Brighton half marathon so now I love it and associate it with running.

– Ebeneezer Goode – The Shamen

It just makes me chuckle and is an absolute classic.

– Example – Changed the way you kissed

Great baseline, great lyrics – perfect for towards the end of a run as a little pick me up.

– Empire of the Sun – We are the people

Just because this is probably my all-time favourite song and makes me happy.
