"Streets"...I want to run....
Wild Honey
New york
I will follow
A sort of homecoming

I started walking every morning again (my sinus makes itis almost impossible), but my walkman is lame, I need to buy a new one...I need the U2 inspiration to keep me going.

I don't know about you Bethany, but when I exercise, I feel like "Two Hearts Beat As One"

lol, Chris. Yeah, sometimes it feels that way. And that's a good song to run to as well. *makes note* Can't forget "Like a Song" too...drumming mania!

Hi Sula, when I workout I always listen to U2!
Here are some of the songs I find good for walking (in addition to those already mentioned):
New Years Day
Gloria
A Celebration
Indian Summer Sky
Everlasting Love (although it doesn't sound like it fits - it does!)
Lady With the Spinning Head
Even Better Than the Real Thing

Sula, if you put the influx mix of Elevation on your tape-beware the people at the gym! I never could listen to that song in public, I'd start jumping up and down going "Woohoo!" throughout the song.
Although it would get your heart a pumpin'!

I have that same problem. There have been several times on the stationary bike that I have to physically suppress myself from throwing a fist in the air. Its nice to know I'm not the only one.

Elevation Influx is a great concert opener. It only follows that it must be a great workout opener.

Stretching to this one excites the mind of the potential sweat you are about to bring on.

lol. I'd probably be in danger of jeapordizing my entire workout by expelling all my energy in that one song. haha. But it is still definitely going on the mix. Now, if I could only slip it into the system at the club so it would be played over the speakers....

I suggest finding another goup. Working out to U2 doesn't seem right to me. How about ACDC's Back in Black?

I've been listening to bootlegs when I go running. I like to pretend I'm Bono running around the heart. (Don't laugh! It seriously works!)

Hey sula, I use an old-fashioned walkman as well during my walkings. If I were you the songs I wouldn┤t leave behind are Mysterious Ways Irving Plaza version, Salome and Big Girls Are Best.

Pumping it up to U2

ok, so I've been making it a habit to go to the gym lately and hit the treadmill or some sort of running machine. And since my Walkman (you know...the old-fashioned TAPE playing kind) is small enough to come with me, I'm trying to come up with some playlist for great U2 workout compilations. Doesn't necessarily have to be stuff with a dance beat, but good solid songs that will get your blood going and keep you pumped. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Nice Salami!

Well Sula, I would most definately put on "Mofo" Live from Mexico City!!! and "Lemon Perfecto Mix into Discotheque" live from Sarajevo.
Those are my choices. they get me soooo pumped. I'd put it at the beginning of your tape for maximum initial effort!

Mofo, Phunk Phorce mix (very nice)
Lemon, Bad Yard Club mix
Elevation, Influx mix
Beautiful Day, Quincy and Sonance remix
Big Girls Are Best
Discotheque
Do You Feel Loved
Even Better Than the Real Thing remixes (all are pretty good for this)
