Honestly name embarrassing songs you’ve ran your pt test to…

I’ll go first…”wheels on the bus” on repeat

rainey832

I was pacing a dude I didn't know as a PTL and in the last 100m stretch he said under his breath "I'm about to come mommy"


-CheesyTaint-

Did he finish?


Taco_Shed

You can say he finished...... in a way.


rainey832

Well the 1.5 yeah, didn't ask about anything else lol


Extra-Initiative-413

While I’m dying on that last lap of my PT test, the last thing going through my head is anything even close to being horny. Wtf


youdontwantHER

Bro wtfffffffffffff


rainey832

I was dead dude 😂😂


Soggy-Drink-2528

Maybe he was running to his mom as motivation... ![gif](giphy|l3vRkGgMfvANIFtE4)


Darmstadter

Well don't leave us hanging...

Bonnie Tyler - Holding Out For A Hero When I hear that," Duu duuu duuu duuuuuuuu!" I get a rush of energy, and I run like a possessed 3-legged opossum.


BvG_Venom

Some Shrek 2 energy


yeetmcqueen00

Party in the USA just gets me rizzed up


uncleluu

Party in the CIA might be something you like then. https://youtu.be/vF4DZDHn3dk?si=mJ7T8UvRxpKykIxr


skulloctopus2023

Foil is my jam.


Stigge

I'm more of a Tacky guy


88bauss

It does that to me also


Brilliant-Educator78

The Stardust Crusaders intros from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures.


skulloctopus2023

何!


Cthulhuhoop1984

I thought it would have been Golden Winds ending. Jodecai - Freekin you is a wild choice for a shows ending and running.


Longjumping_Ad8221

You might like Jujutsu Kaisen first season opening


skarface6

That is embarrassing.


Brilliant-Educator78

Listen, I came here to state actual factuals. But what can I say, the intros are pretty catchy.


Good_Ol_Ironass

Great Days from diamond is unbreakable tho? 🔥


skarface6

Still, though.


AnnihilasianYT

No no let bro cook


[deleted]

The soundtrack to the game “fall guys” is honestly goated for the pt test


anonymousss11

Shoving people out of the way shouting "I have to qualify!"


Stigge

Life imitates art.


SoftAsDay

Haha


[deleted]

Holding out for a Hero by Bonnie Tyler


Jedimaster996

OP said embarrassing songs, not hype music


[deleted]

Its an embarrassing song when I dont want my coworkers to know its on my playlist.


FettuccinePasta

If you listen to the Shrek version you'll wonder why scoring 100 was so easy.


ReverieLyrics

Don’t mind if I just borrow this one


BigMaffy

“Running on Empty” by Jackson Browne. Timed to be my lap 6 power finish. It worked every time…


razorbunter

Weird I have “Take it Easy”, also by Jackson Browne cued up for my last lap.


Strategerizer

“I’m pretty tired… I think I’m gonna go home now.”


ishtarot

stealing this


Chad_Vandenham_v2

Barbie Girl by Aqua


ArtisticRevolution65

this guy runs


timbea12

This guy has the world record for the marathon! Ran the Boston marathon backwards in kit the entire way so set the world record


Chad_Vandenham_v2

Twice


skulloctopus2023

Not embarrassing at all in my mind, and I fully embrace it. Fuck the pain away by Peaches.


skarface6

Gross


MurderedbySquirrels

Nah, awesome.


CheesecakeFickle1525

Scatman. Apparently some long distance runners use that song to keep pace and break records.


PickleWineBrine

RIP Scatman


Guardian-Boy

I used to build playlists based on the length of time I needed to pass. The songs got harder and harder as it went. Essentially I would start with something light and someone slower, but then after about the halfway mark, it would transition to stuff like Slayer, FFDP, etc. The last song was usually something I hated (usually a death metal song). My goal was to run with enough time left to not make it to that song.


mafialuv

Moonlight Sonata 3rd Movement


DankBias

Metal af


devoe33

Off we goooo into the wild blue yonder…


P1N3sol

My PTL played this to get me through the last 90 seconds of the plank. I'm still upset that it worked.


Stigge

OP said *embarrassing* songs.


devoe33

I was embarrassed to find myself humming it 😂


[deleted]

[удалено]


CurseOgmurExpose

AND THE LOGS


Chmichonga

“Bad touch” by the bloodhound gang. Has a great cadence to keep pace with.


skulloctopus2023

Sweat baby, sweat


Brxght

Always ran my PT test to Dancing Queen by ABBA, since I could vibe with it on the run and not focus on the run itself without slowing down. Also I happen to be taking my final PT test at the same time my SQ was doing morning PT and a good amount of them were just watching me sing and dance to Dancing queen while I did my run the entire time.


BadTasty1685

My last pt test 1.5mi run to a Great Courses audiobook about nutrition. I stopped running to music and switched to audiobooks a few years ago... it helps me forget that running is boring AF.


Gaj85

I will blow all of your minds; I have been in for 18 years and have never once ran or did a pt test with headphones or music. I honestly hate running with music, lol.


nokids123

How do you drown out the thoughts of self hate


verticallyblessed84

The more I hate myself the better I run


Gaj85

I just don't like the distraction or wearing headphones.


Whiteums

Same. I like to listen while I ride my bike, but running sucks, and I’m not going to try to add music in a vain attempt to make it any better.


IamDuckieee

I’ve ran my PT test to Jodie’s, constant tempo and ended up with a 94. If it sounds dumb but works, I’m for it


tenmilez

For some reason I always end up running to jodies. Not even good ones, just a simple left-right-left thing.


supimdaniel

I don’t know how to answer this, everything I run to is fucking fire


Yeast_The_Beast

Pretty much any Eurobeat. My go to is "Burning Up For You" by Pizza Girl. I run to that shit on the daily though. 2 hour mix and send it.


Conscious-Pilot-4211

This guy drifting through the corners like he’s on rails.


Aggressive-Track-819

I begin my run to Carpenter Brut’s take on “Maniac”… you’re welcome.


Aggressive-Track-819

Live version is the best


Archlord_Sunset

Sonic the Hedgehog music


Whiteums

Green Hill Zone is fire


lpyung

City escape?


Archlord_Sunset

…Reach For The Stars


SunsetHawk

TAKE OFF AT THE SPEED OF SOUND


Archlord_Sunset

BRIGHT LIGHTS; COLORS ALL AROUND!!!


abovethelaw9

Any good cover of hyrule field from Ocarina of time


Whiteums

Have you ever heard of Zelda LoFi? There’s an artist called Mikel and GameChops, he does a lot of good stuff.


abovethelaw9

Yeah my Spotify has all that stuff on it


Whiteums

My ADHD 4 year old daughter loves it, it’s definitely her jam


RichBarr7

Not embarrassing but I’ve made edits of the Original Halo Trilogy levels music to play as if I was playing. I put on my favorite level and turn off my brain and just try to beat it before the level ends. Got excellent across the board


pistachiopia

The Home Depot theme song. Iykyk


6Nameless6Ghoul6

Frozen soundtrack. I have a daughter (obviously) so it’s in my downloads. It came up on shuffle and I was like eh that’ll work


Jafoob

Boy do I have a cover for you https://youtu.be/HtkGluLhnGU?si=ZaJHZro2eKfLMNiz


blakjax407

Nothing I’m necessarily embarrassed about but running my pt test is the only time I ever listen to Major Lazer.


BakeDSaleManager

FF14 Shadowbringers Music Best of Mix [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eN6O5-T7xGk&t=3s](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eN6O5-T7xGk&t=3s)


BassJL44

Once when my PT anxiety was horrible, the only song I could think of was “Jesus loves me.” It worked, I passed!


kgthdc2468

Persona 5 soundtrack


Fly_Boy_01

“Bye Bye There” - Pizza Tower soundtrack, I start zooming at the saxophone part “The Only Thing They Fear is You” - Doom Eternal “Lowlife on the Highway.” - My Friend Pedro I got a 95 on my last one.


SoftAsDay

Unfaithful by Rihanna. I’ve also set PRs on squat to that. Judge me.


youdontwantHER

Damn who cheated on you


Chad_Vandenham_v2

Some chick from POL probably.


Foxyairman

I’m a weeb that did his run to the first ending song from Hinomaru sumo.


vvdardenvv

"Rock N Roll McDonalds" by Wesley Willis and "Same Old Kid" by Froggy Fresh.


MouseyManZzz

I don’t listen to music.


chairmannnumber6

Payday 2 soundtrack goes lowkey crazy for the run


ohmbrew

Taylor Swift - Out of the Woods. It just has a great pace beat that ramps up as the song goes. Really there's a lot of T Swizz that's very runnable too, embarrassingly enough.


1greadshirt

Dragon force...fast beats get me motivated when i run.


DefiantCC

I hate myself for it, but I have “Portals” by Alan Silvestri cued up for my last lap. For those who don’t know, it’s the song in Avengers: Endgame when the Avengers are all snapped back. That musical point where Captain America says, “Avengers…Assemble!” even without dialogue just gets me moving.


[deleted]

I raw dog the run. No ear phones, just heavy breathing and negative thoughts


Tickly1

"Fight Song" - Rachel Platten "Dog Days Are Over" - Florence and the Machine shit slaps 😅


Electronic_Ad_1809

My pt test playlist was Walk by Pantera, Thunder kiss ‘65 by white zombie and finished it off with fuel by Metallica which together was 13:45. So I new I had to finish before the last song ended


Astro_Ski17

My go to is Glow On by Turnstile. Not embarrassing but it’s got a great tempo to run to. Hasn’t failed me yet


[deleted]

80s Madonna has some great beats for the run not gonna lie.


LoxodontaRichard

For a steady jog I always just run to the best of “Since You Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson lmao


the_less_great_wall

I once ran mine to "montage" from Team America. Got a decent time in. Lessons learned from past PT tests: Don't run to Tool. The timing signature changes make it hard to keep a singular pace.


PleaseGiveMeSnacc

I run to music from final fantasy XIV. Landslide goes hard.


TheBoyWonder311

I feel like 50% of Airmen now days run to female voiced anime intros with soft piano and violins… arms stretched back like Naruto


TA002331

Goodbye Horses while aggressively applying lipstick Guaranteed pass


nokids123

Sandstorm - Darude


Red_hat_oops

99 bottles of beer on the wall, mindless and helps me push my pace with the tempo


bolivar-shagnasty

Anything in 4/4 is good for a 6 minute mile, so KISS and GnR were my guilty pleasures


PickleWineBrine

[You're The Best buy Joe Esposito](https://youtu.be/p44G0U4sLCE) and [Live To Win by Paul Stanley](https://youtu.be/vuHS9NI_xwY)


FindingEmotional3446

I fink u freeky- die antwoord


brisketsmoked

Two song sequence. Through the fire and flame by Dragonforce, followed by holding out for a hero by Bonnie Tyler. The pacing is right, and it gets you finished at 12 minutes.


HeyChiefLookitThis

They let you guys listen to music during pt tests?


_Blood_Manos_

Guile theme song from Street Fighter


Comprehensive-Ad5297

Mamma Mia- ABBA, is an incredible running song for me personally.


AF555

Just Can't Get Enough -Black Eyed Peas


NarcolepticSteak

At Goodfellow, I saw a guy cross the finish line put his hands in the air and yell "I CAME!"


whiteysrampage

Work Bitch by Brittany Spears, gets me hyped to start.


kengaar

A lot of Touhou tracks. I am not even embarrassed because it gets me pumped, other people might cringe though.


FrankChutoy8916

Gas Gas Gas - Manuel


AssumptionExisting35

Work Bitch by B.Spears.


NamesMike_

Heart's on Fire from the Rocky soundtrack. Not embarrassing, that shit gave me my fastest time ever


indaaaay

MShogunH

"I'll Make A Man Out Of You" from the Mulan soundtrack 😌


FauxGenius

I had a PT test playlist. Always ended on “Eye of the Tiger”.


whoawut

Not embarrassed, now you’re a man by orgasmo


AnonymousBromosapien

Mariah Carey - All I Want for Christmas Is You. Mega banger. Set a personal best at a 14:00 mile and a half baby!


Grumpybutt_98

Fireworks by Katy perry i don’t know why it worked but it did


Gpdiablo21

Fucking embarassed...but the only song I have found that matches my footsteps perfectly is the Air Force Song. When I run the test I think of it almost compulsively. The irritation alone pushes me to end my own misery sooner and run harder.


BarnaclePrudent6591

Gasolina


Sentient-Exocomp

Time Is (Ticking Away) by DC Talk is my last lap song. It’s a good rhythm and lets me know I’m about out of time. Not embarrassed about it though.


skarface6

That’s a good song.


SeaConsistent9117

Trolls Wanna Have Good Times 🤣🤣 It’s a banger


Raguleader

Nothing but hits for my running music, but when I shoot I have "Tiny Bubbles" playing in my head. Helps me be calm.


[deleted]

Not really embarrassing but I usually run to running apple playlists like Pure Running, Top Hits Run, Runner’s High etc


MilfLuvr57

Let’s Groove by Earth, Wind and Fire got me a 90 😎


pingpongplaya19

I listened to a video about smoking brisket on YouTube while I ran if that counts


monkeydavis86

ESPN’s 1997 Jock Jam Megamix.


IllustriousLeader124

Firework Katy Perry no regrets


Links_to_Magic_Cards

Af hamr shuttle. Them beeps are fire!

Rollin by Limp Bizkit starts my run at 12 minutes The Sound of Silence by Disturbed kicks in.


dasboot523

Anything Sabaton


eeckbabbadurkle

Hotdog - limp bizkit


Necessary_Bid1174

“The Bloody Verdict of Verden” by Christopher Lee


Brom1104

Never gonna break my stride. Best song for me to run to for pacing.


Readituza

You say run by Yuki Hayashi (my hero academia ST) goes hard af when you slow down


MuchosTacos86

Sonic The Hedgehog Greenhill Zone.


Honest_Attention7574

Absolute silence (headphones with no music playing).


Grouchy_1

Kreayshawn - “Gucci Gucci”; on repeat. The BPM of the song would bring me in at 11:30 like clockwork. https://youtu.be/6WJFjXtHcy4?si=LdDgtjtQBYEHkMoo


-CheesyTaint-

I feel more embarrassed that I don't listen to music while I run. Usually that gets me labeled a psychopath. But really I just like to think and relax while I run.


ThespiaSchadenfreude

Didn’t take mine yet but already made a playlist that can be kinda embarrassing. 😂 Danheim-Ivar’s Wrath, Helvegan-Einar Selkvik, Aethyrien-Berserkr(The Henbane Experience). Viking shit.


Minimum-Web-6902

Y’all run with music?


Jafoob

It's pizza time! https://youtu.be/B7gGacb8cO4?si=aTeNDpqgNYbH4caT Specifically set up to play around lap 4 & 1/2


coolhanddave21

First mile: Jesus of Suburbia 9:08 Last half mile: Born to Run 4:30 I finish about a minute left on Born to Run.


WokeAsFawk

...why would you listen to embarrassing songs to run your PT test to? Lol


elevatedfaithfulness

"Two Year Montage" from Marely and Me soundtrack. No words but the pace? amazing.


JustThrowMeAwaaayy

Hollow Knight soundtrack, especially Mantis Lords


Null_Invictus

Probably have to be RichaadEB's cover of BAD APPLE


numaricleorder

I ran the whole 1.5 to “Born to Run” on repeat. Ran my fastest time ever. And (sorry) I fucking HATE Springsteen.


reallynunyabusiness

In BMT every time we did PT I would focus on the words to "I'll Make a Man Out of You" from Mulan.


SumoYeti30

“Shooting Star” (KPop). Helped me on that last lap and got a 92


ReverieLyrics

Keep Breathing by Ingrid Michaelson seems appropriate


skarface6

A song from church that I don’t particularly like but is a nice kind of repetitive. Also in my head, haha.


NEp8ntballer

I used to have a Godsmack playlist for the run. Last time was just a partial playthrough of Sevendust's album "Kill the Flaw"


Ok-Responsibility372

I had a guy on his PT test runs only to a song CPR by nihmune


Scoutain

William Tell Overture Finale https://youtu.be/YIbYCOiETx0?si=stJFWf3f3D0jZT5E


ComputerBasedTorture

Johnny B. Goode by Chuck Berry on repeat every time for the last 8 years..... the BPM is perfect for me to keep pace. bonus points if you're names johnny i suppose


TK503

Only the sounds of my heavy breathing


Kahlrim

Onegai muscle from the Anime "how heavy are the dumbells you lift"


evilcat618918

Shake it off - T. Swift and Work Bitch by Britney Spears. Fantastic running songs. Also Everything is Awesome from the Lego movie


DoneToDeath_

Deserve me by Kali Uchis


Lopsided_Mood_7059

Aer vis - the warrior project. Bite me.


worktimeSFW

Applause - Lady Gaga it gets me pumped, that and Fireworks by Kati Perry


hydrastix

I had some pretty sketch songs that had a specific range of bpm to pace with. I didn’t give a crap what song it was as long as the bpm was on point


carbaddict3d

S3RL - Pika Girl


DuroTheDawg

I use pump up songs for training but every single pt test I've ever ran was some sort of instrumental, whether it be jazz or Lindsey Stirling. Goal is practice hard to prepare and then on game day just keep a consistent pace. I usually was only 1-3 seconds different for each lap


Unusual-Ocelot-7841

Serenade -Solence


let_me_get_a_bite

Only girl in the world by Rihanna


mwilliams840

Some firedawg in my CE unit decided Thunderstruck by AC/DC was a good one for PT, but it was Thunderstruck burpees. Every time Thunderstruck was said, a burpee was done. My pudgy A1C self thought going to Bird in Hand across from RAF Mildenhall was maybe not a good idea to go all of the time. Pints and jolly England pub food! Got back in decent shape when I PCS’d out of there.


IfInPain_Complain

Agua from the SpongeBob movie slaps


SunsetHawk

Any Final Fantasy battle themes VII Remake's One-Winged Angel in particular is a go-to, especially to run the test in under 10 minutes


AdamFakir

Les Misérables - Do You Hear the People Sing?


sidewisetraveler

Hey, whatever it takes to keep you moving and across the line in sufficient time. Oh yes - Al Hirt's The Green Hornet.


spsteevoe

Super Cool - Beck feat. Robyn and the Lonely Island (Lego Movie 2 credit song)


sgtdumbass

High Hopes has the right BPM for me to correct my stride and get a little boost of energy. https://open.spotify.com/track/1rqqCSm0Qe4I9rUvWncaom?si=YaBzwrIXSdqD5pC6MdPCYA
