    Manfred Mann's "Runner" is a great song for, well, runners.

    Re: track & field songs

    Percy Ceruttys book has a few songs printed in the back that his 'boys' used to sing while they were training.
    Things like..

    "I'm runnin to please ma lord, ma lord"
    "I'm runnin to please ma lord."

    Can't really imagine anyone singing while training let alone the best miler in the world, possibly ever?
    Can't see El G, breaking into song, maybe he does.
    Maybe that is what american MD is doing wrong.

    I believe the lead singer/songwriter was a middle-distance runner in Scotland in his day. Great band. If you wanna check them out, "Boy With the Arab Strap" is a good intro album.

    track & field songs

    I just watched a really weird black comedy starring Christina Ricci titled "Pumpkin," which centers around a guy participating in a Special Olympics-type competition. The soundtrack included an equally weird song titled "The Stars of Track & Field" by Belle & Sebastian. Lyrics here: http://www.lyricsdir.com/b/belle-and-se ... -field.php

    B&S must have a fetish for our sport. They also have a song titled "The Loneliness of a Middle-Distance Runner" (no, not "Long Distance"). Lyrics here: http://www.poplyrics.net/waiguo/bellesebastian/059.htm
