Great Songs To Walk To In Slow Motion To

Updated on November 27, 2011

That Walk Where Time Stands Still

We all want our own theme music right? That music that plays in our head that we wish would play in real life. The moment when you walk into a bar, club or crowded room and that music kicks on and all the eyes are on you. And you keep your cool, and begin that walk, that walk that takes place in slow motion. Movies over the years have made this seem so cool. A guy walks into a room of bad guys, pulls out some guns and in slow motion with that great music to get you pumped up plays in the background as enemies begin to fall one by one.

I remember an episode of Family Guy when Peter wanted his own theme music that would play when he would walk. I bet we have all wanted that. I have our own song that plays as we do the cool walk in slow motion. Throughout the years, I have heard many great songs that always make me think that this would be cool song to play as I entered into a bar walking in slow motion. I’m now admitting it, even though it sounds kind of lame. But I bet that I am not the only one who thinks of this from time to time. I mean, we love to see it in movies. That moment, when the good guy is knocked down and just when you think he or she has been defeated, that music comes on and the hero rises and defeats the enemy.

Not only do movies love this combination of great music and slow motion moves, you will also find great songs in professional sports. In the locker room or playing in the stadium, there are many songs that get players and fans pumped up. In Major League Baseball it is very common for batters to have their own “walk up” music as they approach the batter’s box. In that small moment of time a hitter is letting the music prepare him for his at bat that is coming up. From metal, to rap and many other genres, there are many songs out there to use for this very purpose.

I decided to composite a list together of what I would consider great songs to walk in slow motion to. This list are some songs that have already appeared in movies, some songs you might not have ever heard and some songs that just make complete since to walk in slow motion to.

20. Voodoo Child- Jimi Hendrix

19. My Own Summer- Deftones

18. Hey Man Nice Shot- Filter

17. 99 Problems- Jay Z

16. My Hero- Foo Fighters

15. Forty-Six & 2-Tool

14. They Came In- Butthole Surfers

13. Underbelly- Pop Will Eat Itself

12. How Can I Hold On- Stabbing Westward

11. Map of the Problematique- Muse

10. Back in Black- AC/DC

9. Sleep Now in the Fire- Rage Against the Machine

8. When the Levee Breaks- Led Zeppelin

7. Welcome to the Jungle- Guns N’ Roses

6. Enter Sandman- Metallica

5. I’m Broken- Pantera

4. Bury Me Standing- Z-Tripp

3. Crazy Train- Ozzy Osbourne

2. Sabotage- Beastie Boys

1. Stranglehold- Ted Nugent

Now, as time progresses I know that this list will change. But for now, this is my list of great songs for slow motion walking. I know it is kind of silly but I thought that this would be a fun read and some of you will enjoy it. I always would love to see some other suggestions of songs that did not make my list.

      That is a great song to add to it. I use to be able to play that four minute drum solo in that song. My father loves that song so I am very familiar with it. Great suggestion .

      Hi, Fullerman5000,

      Just a personal thought for you to consider.

      For "my" song to walk in slow motion, I have decided on the drum solo (the late Ron Bushy, drummer) from Iron Butterfly's iconic "In a Gadda Da Vida," (the long version) and see how this would work.

      What do you think?

      I love Voodoo Chile (live version) and from the first time that I heard this Hendrix masterpiece, I have continued to cherish the song only more as years have went by.

      Take care and keep up your great work.

      My New Friend and Talented Hubber, Fullermn5000,

      Your hub is so cool that I had to wear an overcoat.

      This is my type of writing. Abstract mixed with a dab of reality and those songs that would fit someone walking in slo mo. But No argument here. Voodoo Chile (live studio version with Jack Casady; Steve Winwood and Buddy Miles) a true masterpiece.

      Write soon. Love your work.
