I guarantee it. If you listen to Rolling in the Deep by Adele while you’re running, you’ll speed up. It’s not chaotic, it’s not loud. The beat and melodies are simple, yet motivating.
Adele is a young British songstress who, I think, is one of the top few voices in music right now.
This song reminds me a little of Johnny Cash, because of its simple guitar riff and war drums. But it also has soul. It’s a good combo. Make this the last song you listen to on your run and you’ll finish faster no doubt.
