Best Running Song for January!

It's January. Cold. Wet. Windy. Miserable. No time to waste around while a slow song builds and builds to a mid-tempo beat. Nope. We need to get this thing up and running, like right now.

So I bring you We Are Scientists.

These guys can get it cranked up fast. The song of the month, The Great Escape, doesn't even kid around. It gets the beats up there right from the start and doesn't let up until it's over. Just what you need to get you moving out there.

Here's another nice version, live, from Jools Holland.

These guys have other songs that work well on the road, like Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt, which has a video with tons of running in it, and After Hours, which is pretty funny.

Get a move on...we're still two months away from Spring.
