Long Songs for the Long Run

Lately Ive been getting bored with my usual techno, metal or hip-hop running playlists so Im trying something new for tomorrows long run (18kms)..........

1. Afro Blue- John Coltrane
2. Piya Re Piya Re-Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
3. Southern Man- CSNY
4. Machine Gun' Hendrix
5. Dark Star- Grateful Dead
6. The Creator Has a Master Plan- Pharoah Sanders
7. Free Bird- Lynyrd Skynyrd

They are all massively long songs and 1,2,5 and 7 all have a driving meditative quality that help with the can kind of dissapear into a trance-like state for a while....Ive run to Fateh Ali Khan once before and felt pretty amazing........Ive got plenty more than I need so will experiment...


  1. Nice eclectic list. I'd also recommend "Faith Healer" by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band and anything from "On The Corner" by Miles Davis

  2. the davis album.....will have to check out Alex harvey ?
