Chris Martin On Iris? in U2 'Net News & Rumours Posted September 15, 2014 I often play music while out and about and on walks really good listening that way i totally agree. I run a few times a week and i noticed the album although i like it is terrible for running songs. Miracle doesn't flow... EBW, songs, and the last 3 are impossible to run to and there's not to many that have a quick solid running beat to it, most build up slow which doesn't really help unless you jog like a slug!. I tried running, did a half marathon even... I actually prefer walking to running. For walking I loved it. Although I can see how the slow ones would be tough to run to.l lol I actually think U2 music in general is great for walking or running. Now I can walk all day. I just have too many feet issues to run. But yes, walking with music playing in my ears.....medicine for the soul, IMO.
