Electronica/Dance Running Playlist

Another playlist for running, but this time I filtered by genre and chose Electronica/Dance only. I tried this because there were a few good songs from that genre in the 101 Running Songs from that genre that I enjoyed running to. It seemed like a good genre to try out.

I specifically chose a medium tempo of around 120 beats-per-minute (BPM). That’s a good running pace, but not too fast. The playlist is just over an hour of music.

Lesson learned:

Electronica/Dance is definitely a great genre to run to. I thoroughly enjoyed this playlist.

What I liked the most is the difference between the songs. Even though they’re all from the same genre and similar tempo, they are quite different. Some are a bit mellow and others are fairly aggressive.

I think I agree that running to angry music helps me go harder. Not sure if it soothes my soul though.

Rating:

I give it a 4 out of 5.
