Cool So....what's in your Ipod

Well thats what I use, but any digital media player, CD player, favorite radio station....I'm in desperate need of updating my play lists for the gym and I'm looking for some recommendations on some good workout music.
Currently on my gym play list, properly named 'Sweat' is a mix really in no particular order
Alicia Keys, Ani Difranco, Billy Idol, Beoynce, Fergie/Black Eyed Peas, Carbon Leaf, Deftones, Floggin Molly, Gwen Stefani, Mary J, Missy Elliot, Natasha Beddingfield, Nelly Frutado, Outcast, Pat Benetar, Rancid
I mean really these are just a few so I'm sure you can seem my tastes are all over the place....some days I suppose I need punk or metal at the gym and some days I need hip hop, others bluegrass and folk are appropriate
Anyway in my quest to build more effective workout play lists I also want to add some new music too...except I really have no idea what I'm looking for so I thought I'd ask for input from all of you....what are you favorite workout songs? I mean really out of the 10,000 songs that live in my Ipod... I probably listen to 20 of them....its terrible.

I have a lot of 80's pop music on my ipod. The beat is good and keeps me moving when walking or working out! I tend to unconsciously match my strides or repetitions to the beat, so the 80's music keeps me going at a good pace.

Kelly, would you mind listing some of the songs? I keep thinking that 80s music would be good for walking/running, but I guess I'm getting old because I can't remember titles and artists anymore! I went to high school in the 80s, so I should remember!! I've been desperate for some new stuff on my workout playlist too.

Some of my all-time favorites:

Beyonce - Get Me Bodied
Destiny's Child - Lose My Breath
Amerie - 1 Thing
Lumidee - Uh Oh
Justin Timberlake - Rock Your Body
Michael Jackson - Rock with you
Outkast - The Way You Move

Oh, and Fergie - Fergalicious... "I be up in the gym just workin' on my fitness..." Perfect!

Any remixes are great for me. Justin Timberlakes "Sexy Back" is a GREAT one! I like to think it's my theme song "I'm bringin' sexy back....."

So true, Tiffany!! You know, I've never liked Fergie, but I put that song on my iPod and it's got me through many a tough time on my runs!! It's a perfect workout song, and every time I hear that part I think -- hey, I AM up in the gym workin' on my fitness!! I don't think my body is quite "vicious" yet, as she says about hers! But I'll get there!

I saw Outkast on your list -- their song "Hey Ya" is a good one for me too. So peppy. I went back to old Janet Jackson stuff and put "If" on there. That's a good one. I like variety, so here are a few of the other ones that I like because they're somewhat fast and keep me going:

"Mr. Brightside" -- The Killers
"Since U Been Gone" -- Kelly Clarkson
"SOS" -- Rihanna
"Hong Kong Garden" -- Siouxsie and the Banshees
"Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" -- KT Tunstall

Along with all the songs you guys like (which I agree with you all the way) I have a rather eclectic (spelling?) music taste.

Daft Punk - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (one of my all-time favourites)
Gnarls Barkley - Crazy (or any of the album "St. Elsewhere")
Weezer - Island in the Sun
A Flock of Seagulls - I Ran (So Far Away)
Frank Sinatra - The Lady is A Tramp
The Supremes - Stop in the Name of Love
Daft Punk - Da Funk (AWESOME for doing stuff like crunches or something with a lot of reps, but not much movement)
K-Os - Crabbuckit
Led Zeppelin - Rock and Roll
Ladytron - Some Velvet Morning
Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out
The Rolling Stones - Paint it Black
Black Eyed Peas - Hey Mama

Yup. That's a lotta really varied songs

This one is on my MP3 player and I've kinda adopted it as my theme song too!

I'm working now, but I'll come back later and post some of my favorites.
