favorite running music

I've posted this in other forums but seem to get unsatisfactory responses (lots of rap & heavy metal recommendations) probably due to the age of the participants. Here's my question: what are your 2 or 3 favorite songs to run to?<br><br>
Here's a couple of mine to start things off:<br>
Your friends are tearing us apart by Eric Clapton (my favorite singer in the world)<br>
I run for life by Melissa Etheridge (how motivational!)<br>
River Deep Mountain Wide by Celine Dion (this one really gets you cooking)<br>
I also like a lot of motown songs.<br><br>
Have a great day, everyone!<br>

Here's what's in my IPod: When Johnny strikes up the band-Warren Zevon, Johnny B. Goode-Chuck Berry, Johnny Can't Read-Don Henley, & that early 60's classic Johnny Angel-Shelly Fabres (sp) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> What'ya expect anyway??<br><br>
OK, in all seriousness, I never listen to music while running, I don't even own an IPod, however I did burn a CD a while back which I play loud in my truck to jack me up before a race:<br><br>
Good Work - Bodeans<br>
Mercury Blues - David Lindley (the kick ass version, nothing like the pathetic Allen Jackson version)<br>
Fun Fun Fun - the Beachboys<br>
Old Pipeliner - Rodney Crowell<br>
Number 9 - Indigenous<br><br>
As one can tell from my avatar, I'm just a burned out freak from the 60's who still likes rock and roll, blues, R & B, reggae, bluegrass, americana, and I like it played loud. Where to start, Phish, Allman Bros., the Dead & their offshoots, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers (seeing him next month) Robert Earl Keen, Jimmy LaFave, Fred Eaglesmith, Susan Tedeschi, Clapton, Skynyrd (the old stuff with Ronnie), Bruce Cockburn, Coco Montoya, Kasey Chambers, Bonnie Raitt, Van Morrison, Dave Alvin, Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, Iris Dement, Greg Brown, the Stones, Tom Petty, John Fogerty, Fleetwood Mac (with Peter Green, not with Stevie Nicks & Lindsey Buckingham). Little Feat, Natalie Merchant, Old Crow Medicine Show, Bob Marley, Marshall Tucker Band, Neil Young, I could go on all night, but I won't.
