I don't always run with music, but when I do, these are the songs that I play... Memes aside, here are some of my favourite tunes to run to. They carry a good, upbeat tune to them, and have lyrics that follow the theme.
Tiësto - Footprints
Not only does this song carry a tune that's upbeat and energetic, the lyrics could not be more appropriate for running.
Kaskade Ft. Dragonnette - Fire In Your New Shoes (Sultan and Ned Shepard Electric Daisy Remix)
This song may not be the most upbeat song on the list, but it carries a nice ambient tune with lyrics that make you want start a fire in your new shoes.
Empire Of The Sun - Walking On A Dream (Kids At The Bar Remix)
Upbeat? Check. Fitting lyrics? Check. Cheery lyrics? You 'betcha!
Shirobon Ft. Sabrepulse - Cyberstrike
This always make me step my game up when running since it makes me feel like I'm competing in a game. Perfect to get you in that competitive mood!
Space Cowboy - Running Away (MSTRKRFT Remix)
Another song that features a fun beat and lyrics to run to, and also has that distinct iconic MSTRKRFT-esque sound to it.
Daleri - Curare (Get Faster)
It's a strong tune with minimal, but effective lyrics - "Get faster!"
Morgan Page feat. Tegan and Sara - Body Work (Collin McLoughlin Bootleg Remix)
Do you do your body work? A nice bootleg remix that keeps the song more upbeat with some killer beats.
Andybody - Sometimes I Even Amaze Myself
Extremely beat heavy that will get your heart pumping.
Krewella - Come & Get It
Need to get your adrenaline rushing? Come & get it!
Madeon - The City

Stadiumx & Taylr Renee - Howl At The Moon
Late night runner? Show who's the boss by howling at the moon - or at least freak people out..
Krewella - Live For The Night (Pegboard Nerds Remix)
While you're howling at the moon, why not get the adrenaline going even more?
Cash Cash - Overtime (Candyland & DotEXE Remix)
Run into overtime with this fun tune that has a bunch of songs mashed up into one.
