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>

Lots of great suggestions!!! I favor the New Wave, Punk, Reggae, Ska categories.... While I don't listen to music when I run, I usually have songs running through my head (too often they're kids songs that end up driving me crazy!!!). If I took my MP3 player, I would probably pick longer and slower songs I can lose myself in such as:<br>
Velvet Underground: Oh! Sweet Nothin';<br>
Cocteau Twins: Spangle Maker;<br>
U2: An Cat Dubh/Into the Heart;<br>
P.I.L.: Fat Chance Hotel;<br>
Bad Brains: I Luv I Jah;<br>
Clash: Police and Thieves; and<br>
Specials: Stereotypes
