Greatest Ever Running Songs is an entertaining, although random, sampler of 47 familiar tracks released over five decades. This budget compilation contains an eclectic playlist that includes Jerry Lee Lewis, C + C Music Factory, Madness, the Meters, Republica, Ike & Tina Turner, and Lene Lovich. There's no particular reason why this compilation exists, but the end result is an enjoyable listen for those on a budget.
