Can anyone give me ideas for tracks to update my running playlist with? I like what I already have but some of the songs are starting to sound a bit too familiar and I want some more on there to mix it up a bit. High BPM is a must although I don't mind some slower periods in songs as long as overall it's fast-paced.

I don't mind the genre, anything from pop to rock to dance to rap is fine, so long as it has a decent melody and high BPM.

Some examples of stuff already on there: Can't Hold Us (Macklemore), Plug It In (Basement Jaxx), Pump It (BEP), most of Britney and Rihanna's back catalogue, Somebody Told Me (Killers), Town Called Malice (The Jam), Closer (Tegan and Sara), Bounce (Iggy Azalea)

Would appreciate any more suggestions, the more obscure the better.

Since it's just come out, Britney - Work B*tch would be perfect

But some of the songs on my playlist are:
Krewella - Come and Get It (/or just all of their songs)
Nikki Williams - Glowing
Bonnie McKee - American Girl
Duke Dumont - Need U 100% (if you can't still stand it)
Priyanka Chopra - Exotic

You run a mile when you hear a 1D song? I do too. Can't stand them and I'm sick of seeing them everywhere

How about putting yourself in an 80s montage situation with songs along the lines of Joe Esposito's You're the Best?

Or maybe something from Survivor

Thanks for the suggestions guys, will be giving them all a listen on YouTube when I get home. Keep 'em coming if anyone has anymore.

Who says I don't already do that?

I listen to the Euphoria trance compilations from late 1999/ early 2000s. Stuff like Faithless, ATB, Chicane and loads of less commercial stuff really makes running the ultimate high and the breakdowns lift me when I'm flagging. Probably best on a treadmill though.
