- Excuses by Bibio 91BPM
This song starts a bit low key and takes about half a minute to really get into the beat. But it is worth it! This is a beautiful electronic landscape - with nice lyrics too. I think it might be my favourite on the list. Oh and if the slow start doesn't work for you while running, you could always trim it.
- R.I.P Burn Face by CocoRosie 90BPM
Sweet tune, strange lyrics, just as I like it.
- My Time bu Minus the Bear 92BPM
Although its a little fast, this is a great tune to run to. A nice little indie pop rock song, hard not to like.
- Glass Table Girls by The Weeknd 89BPM
Warning lyrics contain bad words, otherwise super hip and cool, and is he rapping some old Siouxsie and the Banshees lyrics? "this is a happy house, we're happy here in our happy house"
- Civilian by Wye Oak 90BPM
According to Wikipedia, Why Oak have been described as "earnest folk-influenced indie rock with touches of noise and dream pop". Yeap.
- Black Night by The Dodos 91BPM
Straight up indie rock to get those feet moving.
