  2. Some good choices there Denise.

    Cause I’m a runner, I find a great workout song is one with a pretty fast, constant beat. Something that helps keep the pace up, without going too frantic. So here mine are:

    The Purple Bottle – Animal Collective
    Pounding – Doves
    This Modern Love – Bloc Party
    Aerodynamic – Daft Punk
    Glass Dance – The Faint
    Time is Running Out – Muse

  3. Right let’s start by saying thanks for all the podcasts so far, they are a great studt/essay writing tool!

    1. The fist song is probably the best drum intro I know: Rock and Roll – Led Zeppelin.

    2. Dead on TIme – Queen, from the Jazz album is the loudest song they have and always gets the pulse racing.

    3. Add to that Helter Skelter – The Beatles. This song was written by Paul in response to Pete Townshend who said The Who were the loudest band in the world, so Paul wrote a thoroughly mad and interesting tune in response. Pure adrenaline.

    4. Have to get something in there by the Crue, Too Fast for Love – Motley Crue form the debut album. Many criticisms of them, but they’re actually one of the few bands I know that own their entire back catalogue. That’s how much of an irritant Nikki Sixx was to Sylvia Rhone (then CEO of Elektra).

    5. Numb – Jay-Z & Linkin Park. A future classic in my mind, that guy from LP just conveys pure rage in his voice.

  4. 1. The Angels’ Share – Ted Leo & the Pharmacists
    2. Walking to do – also Ted Leo

    Hmm actually almost any song by that band will do and I can’t really think of anything else except lame gym remixes.

  9. I wanna change my Queen choice to Tie Your Mother Down from the A Day At The Races album.
    This initial riff was written by Brian May on a small acoustic guitar then he was on top of the Teide volcano in Tenerife doing his PhD observations. When Freddie asked him what he was called, BRi told him and was a bit embarassed with the title. Fred being Fred of course, told him to run with it, which is where the rest of the ridiculous lyrics come from. And what a riff!

  10. I’d like to see if Brian is capable of compiling a Top 5 list without having to include a Queen song.
