Heaven 17 – The Luxury Gap

Damn right it’s political. Sheffield had something to answer for then and they likely still do. LMG only reached #42 in the UK and #41 in Canada, but spent 5 weeks at #4 on the US Dance Charts. “Crushed by the Wheels of Industry” peaked at #17. Enough said.

  • Just Play Music by Big Audio Dynamite from the album Tighten Up the Vol. 88 (1988)

Big Audio Dynamite – Tighten Up the Vol. 88

Warren and I went to see BAD at the Opera House in 1994, I think. November night, raining. Mick Jones never garnered the respect of Joe Strummer but Big Audio has a great collection of running numbers; though this is the only one from this album. 80’s London, “It don’t have to all sound lame”.

 

 

 

 

  • Everybody Thinks I’m a Raincloud (When I’m Not Looking) by Guided By Voices from the album  Half Smiles of the Decomposed (2004)
Half_Smiles_of_the_Decomposed-Guided_By_Voices-220

Guided By Voices – Half Smiles of the Decomposed

I can remember thinking song titles with brackets implied that the words in the brackets were an alternative title that could stand on it’s own if required. I still believe this. When I’m Not Looking takes me back to the Electrifying Conclusion tour and Denise and I driving to Cleveland for the show. Tobin Sprout opened and then they projected a Power Point presentation chronicling the band. Great venue: The Beachland Ballroom. 97 plays at time of posting.

 

 

  • The Sun Smells Too Loud by Mogwai from the album The Hawk is Howling (2008)
220px-Thehawkishowling

Mogwai – The Hawk is Howling

Scots have long been purveyors of top shoe-gaze and Mogwai is generous with their servings. No quibble, among  the top 10 Scottish running bands. Ever.

  • Ramshackle Day Parade by Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros from the album Streetcore (2003)
Joe-Strummer-and-the-Mescaleros-Streetcore-220

Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros – Streetcore

This song makes my skull tingle. I’m pretty sure circa 1982 Joe Strummer once ran the Paris Marathon in a pair of dress shoes. Julian Schnabel beautifully closes his quite fine film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly with it. Strummer himself died the year before the album’s release. Highly recommended running song.

  • Coolo by Illya Kuryaki and The Valderramas from the album Leche (1999)
Illya_Kuryaki_And_The_Valderramas-Leche-220

Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas – Leche

 

When this song came out I had moved from Buenos Aires a year earlier. However, while living there, I was able to enjoy the release of their first few albums which are all stellar. Saw them live a few times too. Coolo sits as the single most played track on my running playlist. It’s never been removed.

No, no, no, no no! Deadly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • North American Scum by LCD Soundsystem from the album Sound of Silver (2007)
LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver

LCD Soundsystem – Sound of Silver

Leaving the gate, coming back into the driveway, or trotting up your third of five serious climbs, this here is a running song that performs its duty at any point during your gallop. With a 5:25 duration, it never loses steam and has single-handedly salvaged more than one outing that looked like it was going to wrap early.

Captures the loneliness of the long distance runner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Jane of the Waking Universe by Guided By Voices from the album Mag Earwhig! (1997)
mag-earwhig

Guided By Voices – Mag Earwhig

The first full album release after Bob Pollard dissolved what has came to be known as the “classic” Guided By Voices lineup. Enter lead guitar Doug Gillard from Cobra Verde. At 2:26 Jane of the Waking Universe is more than suitable for a running mix.

 

 

 

 

  • Crazy Rhythms by The Feelies from the album Crazy Rhythms (1980)
Crazy Rhythms - The Feelies

Crazy Rhythms – The Feelies

Clocking in at 6:13 this guitar pick contains a central instrumental break that runs close to four minutes and is accompanied by a steady backbeat that has secured its tenure as a longtime resident of the running mix. During a run the instrumentals are conducive to lucid thought and the metronomic beat maintained throughout is not only great for pacing but is also a piece of impressive drumming. I think the drummer did a stint in Luna. It serves best during a long climb.  The outro is dip of the guitar neck to The Modern Lovers’ Road Runner.
