Racing song?

Anyone else have a tune in their head when they're racing? Mine's arctic monkeys....."oh he might wear classic reeboks, or knackered converse or tracky bottoms tucked in socks...." don't know what its called but its only ever in my head while i'm racing!!!

    I have lots of different songs depending on what's been on the ipod most recently. Although i quite often find myself humming ride of the valkiries, another one that i often get stuck in my head is slipknot but i don't know the words, so it's just that i humm the 'tune'. Oh dear i just realised that i hum metal...

    I raced a 10 mile run on Sunday having just listened to "Heads Will Roll" by Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Classic quick 1-2-3-4 tempo, perfect for keeping a high cadence. Bit of an ear worm though, couldn't get out out of my head when I wanted to.

    I'm going to start using the theme from Knight Rider! Oh yes. An idea put into my head by garyroberts; thanks very much. Nobody can fail to go fast with the theme from Knight Rider in their head.

    My wife and sister in law were singing 'Pegggy....Peggy Suuuueee....' for ages, until I corrected them. They were adimant they were right, until I pointed out that Peggy Sue was a Buddy Holly song! And the name of the song was, Begging You!

    On the bike on Sunday I found I had one of the songs off the latest Metallica album going through my head. High tempo and lyrics about hunting people down - helped me overtake a few people [:D]

    does anyone remember the music from Rocky 4...

    Hearts on Fire? I use the Rocky music when I'm on the turbo or out running.

    Don't laugh but I like it... I find it gets me quite motivated, just as it did when I was a young un and wanted to be a boxer after watching Rocky films.

    I tend to watch Rocky the night before races as well.... gets me well pumped up.

    Ah yes, Hearts On Fire....I believe that is on my mp3 too, you are not alone.....!

    I also like the training montage from Rocky 4 but hearts on fire is the best one.

    I like to start my run using the Rocky Theme then progress up to the training songs.

    I am sad!!!!

    Yyup. Got the montage too.

    And yyup, we are sad. [:D]

    I have a fair few songs that go on through my head but chances are they are either from the Rocky Story or The Topgun Soundtrack albums. These albums complete a warmup playlist on my Ipod [:)]

    Britspin, Where do you teach spinning? Your taste is far more consistent with my taste with the stuff I have to listen to at Fitness First Kilburn.

    No music while racing - but on the way to the race:

    Motorhead - Overkill

    Judas Priest - Exciter

    Dio - Stand up and shout

    Rainbow - Live version of Kill the King

    Iron Maiden - Transylvania

    Either that or Radio 3 [:)]
