Songs to keep you running. . . fast.

Music is one of the biggest motivators for me while i'm working out.  It helps me push myself longer and harder, which i'm sure is true for many people.  If I am dying during a run on the treadmill but want to push myself a few minutes extra, i'll start a five minute song that I love.  Usually i'll end up pushing myself through the whole song even though I have nothing left.  My list is always changing as I tend to overplay some songs and get tired of them.

Here are a few of my current top songs:

1) La Roux- In For The Kill (Skream Remix) ~ 5:03
2) Stereo Love- Ed Maya ft. Vika Jigulina (Scotty Remix)  ~ 3:46
3) XXXO- MIA ft. Jay-Z ~ 2:51
4) Very Busy People - The Limousines ~ 4:05
5) Take It Off- Ke$ha~ 3:36
6) I've Got Friends- Manchester Orchestra ~ 5:00

I do a good amount of high intensity interval training and these songs all work well for that purpose :)
