Run Lazy Run !!

And I ran, ran and ran. Haven’t done something like this in the last few years. Per my self-assumed nick goes, I was always lazy enough to run on the treadmill. Even those wacky-techno-gizmos called walkman, CD player and mp3 player could only inspire me just a lil’ bit. Last week, I was thinking about a blogpost to gather suggestions on Tamil songs for the Tread Mill. After all how many times could I listen to just Humma Humma, Uyirin Uyirey or the ultra cool Illamai Idho Idho.

While in college, I was a big fan of rock and heavy metal music. Even now, I would listen to it on any offbeat day but not regularly, like those college years(even before brushing teeth). Looking for a change, I banged my MP3 player with a dose of Metallica, a pinch of Judas Priest, one teaspoon of Megadeath and a big chunk of Iron Maiden sprinkled with Linkin Park‘s Hybrid Theory. What a suprise. I was running nonstop for more than 25 minutes. Spoiling my ears with those electric guitars and bass drummers, I was trying to help myself with the work-out. Phew !! What an irony.

If you don’t believe, do it for yourself, listen to Metallica’s ST.Anger, Iron Maiden’s Can I pay with madness and Judas Priest’s Metal Meltdown, see your mood getting relaxed. I have a dozen of Black Sabbath and Led Zep music for tomorrow. BTW, I still don’t have a fresh list of Tamil songs for the tread mill. Any suggestions would help the fellow lazy’s hanging out here !!

    I did not know that fellow thayir saadham is interested in running. Sorry, I am not giving you Tamil Songs. But you have got to check this site out..absolutely phenomenal…the best audio guided workouts..

    Trust me, don’t go by samples. I have used all volumes and will tell you, there is nothing like it. It really works well when you run with it. I am enchanted with these volumes and Volume 4 is really thrilling to Indian ears.
    Do you read your e-mail? 🙂

    Guru, I have only one reco (and it is an apt one):

    Rojaappoo aadi vandadhu (Agni Natchaththiram) 🙂

    I like fast beats too, until I started listening to comedy plays. Now I put on a 30 – 50 min play and run for the whole time. When I need to really focus on speed, I do fast songs.

    Chenthil, While I think the other two are perfect fits, Surangani might just be without a good tune. But I see where you are pointing to, the dabbankuthu. Got the message.

    Ferrari, Thanks for the list but I haven’t heard of 16. Jab Andhera hota hai remix, 17. Bin Tere Sanam remix and 18. Jaane kya dhoondta hai from Sur. How do they sound like ?

    TRK, Thanks and Ooroma Aathupakkam is a good choice.


  12. Lazy Geek Avatar

    Arvind, Vaanil aeni pottu is from Rahman’s Pudhiya Mannargal. Good selection and yeah eminem, anytime !!

    Jacky, Looks like Vaadi Vaadi is a red hot song. anyway will try the Mere angu ne mein.

    Thodarum, Will check out

    Bala, Metallica rocks, isn’t it ??

    Tamilponnu, Finally someone who suggests only dappangkuthu. Nandri.

    Mukund, Thoda !!

    Munimma, I was thinking of that. Infact I have a bunch of those comedy plays already in my mp3. But wasn’t quite sure if it will ‘inspire’ me. I usually hear them while going to sleep and laughing out loud when the lights are switched off. Will try your suggestion too.

    No takes on Ghajini yet?

    As for songs – try ARR’s hits, Gaana hits (many haev been mentioned in the comments) and also try, the oldie type from Aridhum Ariamalum. Other than that the hindi remixes should do it.

    load this one too..
    unekkna mele nindrai nandhalala from Simla Special.

    Hi Guru,

    Personally, high quality music irrespective of the genre gets me to sway, if not head bang! Apart from the several rock bands out there, and all the great tamil songs, I would recommend Dire Straits’ and Pink Floyd’s songs(if incase u havent heard them before!). They are a class above the rest, if not equal to Metallica, Iron Maiden and the rest.

    Billy Joel(We didn’t start the fire,Pianoman,River of Dreams,Uptown Girl) is also great!


  16. Lazy Geek Avatar

    Vikram, If you ask me Dire Straits is one of the best bands I’ve heard. Sometimes Pink floyd is over the top and can’t get their metaphorical music. But anytime for Sultans of Swing.

    i stumbled onto your site when i was looking for some info on the Nayakan DVD. i was thoroughly impressed by the amount of coverage that you give to Tamil films 🙂

    and then i saw this post and i was blown away by your musical tastes! i’m a HUGE fan of hard rock and heavy metal: Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Led Zep – the holy trinity 🙂

    Rock on dude! 🙂

    The daily routine on treadmill
    Can be as dreary as a military drill
    It can really test your will
    With the musical tunes that you tend to fill
    The experience can give you the kind of thrill
    That matches your writing skill

    You seem to have a way with words. Your blogs are an education to budding bloggers. Thanks for so many links.
