Josey Needs Some Help

K of C members I would like some advice. I have started running a lot (after I broke my shoulder I can’t lift) and I listen to music during my runs because running is really boring otherwise. My music collection needs to be expanded. Since the last music news I read was that David Cloverdale (member of Whitesnake) was attacked by a bear in his house I need some help. Please make some suggestions for music I should download, I just got limewire so I am ready to illegally expand my music collection. I also lost basically all the illegally downloaded music I got at Luther when I got a new computer. I like a lot of different types of music, including instrumentals (bagpipes anyone), with only two exceptions, no rap and no country (except Cash). So please inform me of bands or songs I should check out. I really appreciate the help, don’t be afraid or ashamed (I listen to Pat Benatar) of suggestions, I will show no hate to any good faith help, whether I like the stuff or not.
Also on another note, if anyone is thnking about singing up for an running races let me know and I will join you.
Thanks, K of C.

Ha... That will make you not want to run and just go back and play guitar hero.

Here is what I do. I don't listen to much music on my ipod while I run. I like to listen to podcasts, they take my mind of running because I get into what the people are talking about.

With music I know the average song is about 2-4 minutes long and so when I hear one start I start to dread that I will still be running by the time the song ends.

I listen to the following podcasts:
LOST podcast
Around The Horn
This American Life
Wait Wait Don't Tell me
Bungie Podcast
The Onion

I recommend trying a podcast on one of your longer runs.

Other than that I am a big fan of Daft Punk.

I just did a 35 minute run to Eve 6 last night and I would really recommend it. I also recommend Dropkick Murphys/Flogging Molly to feed your fist pumping bagpipe addiction. I've also used the playlist from our GAC booze cruise (well, mine and SB's booze cruise, your grueling drive), and that does a really good job. I would definately recommend thinking about the music and singing along or something to avoid the pitfall that Daymonster encounters.

Let us know what you choose to try, Josey.

To begin, I have an irregular addiction to Classic Rock and 80's Music. That being said,

I have a list for you...
Allman Brothers
Arcade Fire
B.B. King
Band of Horses
David Bowie
Derek & the Dominos (Eric Clapton)
Bela Fleck and the Flecktones
Dry the Rain by the Beta Band
Billy Idol
The Black Keys
Rust Never Sleeps(CD) by Neil Young and Crazy Horse
The Police
Radiohead's new CD In Rainbows
Robert Randolph and the Family Band
Talking Heads
Van Morrison
Wang Chung?
Excitable Boy(CD) Warren Zevon

If you want more/already have these, then I can try to give more info. Dave said that we had somewhat of the same music taste, so if you come down for trout fry I can get you some cd's or something. Hope that helps a little.

Thank you all for the advice.

Daymonster I hear what your saying, songs are short and it sucks thinking about how when one ends you have not really run that far. However I am not sure I could do the podcasts.

Unky Playboy, I do listen to many of the bands you named, but I do not have music from all of them, so I will check out those, thanks a lot, thats exactly the type of info that will make searching easy.

I have some live Clapton and Allman Brother's cd's if you want them...
