I'm listening to Dave Matthews "Save Me" right now...and I think it would be perfect.

However...I think Dave is perfect for everything and anything.
Everything he's ever done, period

I haven't fallen for a musician/band like this since I was a teenager...he gives me shivers!

Mthrgoos68--how are you?? You just love to slip in unnoticed, don't you? But I caught you!! Hope that life is going well for you.

About music, I'm pretty much into anything with a good beat. My DH downloaded some aerobic workout music that is a bunch of songs I've never really heard of, but they all have a nice, pounding beat.

I don't do music much when I work out. I like to listen to talk radio. It keeps my mind occupied and I don't think about what I'm doing.

From the eclectic mix on my mp3, I enjoyed Billie Jean by Michael Jackson and Bad Medicine by Bon Jovi especially today.
I also have a soft spot for Stacey's Mom but I always sing Steffie's mom has got it goin on .....

I usually watch TV when I work-out, so no music.

Almost anything country i.e Big and Rich is fantastic. I really love Queen's Fat Bottom Girls for obvious reasons and I also listen to talk radio on my walks, not so much at gym work outs cause there is no reception.There is also a great band called Don Juan Dracula that have really high energy music. and I know its really lame but I also downloaded the Biggest Loser Theme music and its really motivating.

dredging up a super old thread because i was curious about the same thing.

if you have one, what song helps you go forward when you feel like giving up?

mine's 'no more looking over my shoulder' by travis tritt. it's about moving forward and letting go of the past, in this case my past of treating body poorly. there's a line in the song... "and i thank god for the blessing that i finally learned this lesson, "one step in the right direction's worth a wasted mile behind"" that just seems to help me keep going.

though, and this might be a weird one, but that song 'loser like me' from glee? i think of it in terms of weight loss and when i hear it it makes me smile!

Right now with everything in my family life and weight loss journey, Not Ready To Make Nice is really inspiring me to keep going. Love it.

Still mad as **** and I don't have time to go round and round and round"

It's hard for me to give song names because I have entire CDs on my ipod but Kidd Rock and Nickelback usually keep me going at a VERY good pace!

For me it's Defying Gravity (Glee version) because it's about finding out what you're capable of, if you really try.
