Run-Tested Playlist: Stefan's Incredibly Eclectic Mix


Stefan is one of those ideal Cruise Controllers. He clocks in 30 km runs routinely and then emails us his suggestions for app improvements and his favourite runnings songs. It would be nice to immortalize his contribution with a plaque on the wall of our office, but since we don't have an office, a run-tested playlist is the next best bet. Here are Stefan's incredibly eclectic 15 favourite running songs. Enjoy!

  1. Bloodrave - The Prodigy *not on iTunes
  2. Brains - Lower Dens
  3. Evacuate - The Boxer Rebellion
  4. Feral - Boxed Wine
  5. Lose Yourself - Eminem
  6. Loud Pipes - Ratatat
  7. This Modern Love (Dave P. and Adam Sparkles Making Time remix) - Bloc Party
  8. Upon this Tidal wave of Young Blood - Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah
  9. Austere - The Joy Formidable *not sure if correct version
  10. A-Punk - Vampire Weekend
  11. Voodoo People (Original Mix) - The Prodigy *not sure if correct version
  12. Everlong - Foo Fighters
  13. Fight & Kiss - We Are Wolves
  14. Wolf Like Me - TV on the Radio
  15. New World Man - Rush

Run-Tested Playlists are a collection of songs that we, and our users, love Cruisin' to. These songs have a beat that is very easy to follow and are very likely to make it through the app's tempo analyzer. But, we can't guarantee it - it turns out that the iTunes store encodes the same songs in a bunch of different ways depending upon which country you are in. Want more tunes to cruise to? We'll post a new playlist of some of our favorites here periodically or follow @CruiseCtrlRun for more frequent recommendations.
