90+ Songs With the Word "Run" or "Running" in the Title

Running is one of my favorite exercises, mainly because I can do it pretty much anywhere I go. No need to bring any special equipment; I just lace up my running shoes and off I go!

But just like any person who runs regularly, I find myself hitting a few roadblocks. Sometimes, my legs get too sore. Other times, I just don’t feel like getting off the couch. Thankfully, I have created a “running” playlist, which always pumps me up whenever hundreds of excuses roam in my mind.

During my search, I’ve found so many songs with "run" in the title. A lot of them don’t have anything to do with the actual act of running. In most cases, the word “run” or “running” is used in an entirely difference context.

Case in point is “Run to Me” by the Bee Gees. I love the lyrics of this song as it tells the listener that there’s a person she can run to when she feels lonely and needs a shoulder.

Another example is “Time Don’t Run Out on Me” by Anne Murray. It’s about longing for someone special to be back, turn back the hands of time when everything was in its rightful place.

Songs with "run" or "running" in the title can be much more meaningful than you’d expect. Just take some time to listen to the songs listed below and you’ll see what I’m talking about. And if you can add more to the list, feel free to share them in the comments section.
