What Music is Good for Running: Songs from Olympic Commercials

I love the Olympics. Even the commercials get me hyped. Here are two of the best songs from this year's commercials:

IE9 commercials - Alex Clare's "Too Close." Throbbing break up song that is soulful, big and makes you wanna roll.
Unkown advertiser - Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive." Alternative, strong, a little disenfranchised but with power. Makes me grind the gears up to the next level.

One more song, for the ladies. Adele's "Rumour Has It" is angry, upbeat, rich and, similar to "Single Ladies" for some people a few years ago, empowering.

Enjoy your workouts and couch surfing this Olympics!
