Default Latest favorite workout music?

Having super upbeat (and frequently pounding) dance music is soooo important to my having a good workout. The few times I've forgotten my ipod and/or it's run out of batteries it's been no fun!

I think there was a thread about this somewhere recently but I can't find it right now.

What are your favorite workout tunes? My top 3 right now are:

1. Gotta Get Thru This - DANIEL BEDINGFIELD (the lyrics are PERFECT for intense cardio!!)
2. Stronger - Kanye West
3. The Way I Are - Timbaland

(I purposely save my workout songs for workouts ONLY. No listening when not working out allowed, to keep them "fresh" longer. )

T.I. - Whatever U Like
Munga - Whine Pon It
Queen Ifrica - Keep It To Youself
Charley Blacks - Cli**rus
Vybz Kartel - Fatta Dan A Pound

Those are just a few - As you can see, I normally like to listen to dirty dancehall while I workout. I have no idea why. It makes me MOVE. lol.

1) gym class heroes- cookie jar ...haha it makes me laugh, even though he's meaning it a different way...when he says "you can hide it, i'mma find it...I'll say I didn't do it, my face covered in chocolate....i got my hand in the cookie jar" ...haha Basically that's my relationship with cookies.

2) Anything by Mindless Self Indulgence

3) Modest Mouse- Float on

Hmmm here's my "move it" mix:

Shake It - Metro station
Disturbia - Rihanna
Just Dance - Lady Gaga (the best!)
Paper Planes - M.I.A
Amy Amy Amy - Amy Winehouse (but only the first half of this song)
Hot'n'Cold - Katy Perry
Self Inflicted - Katy Perry
Use your love - Katy Perry
Old School - Hedley
Money Honey - State of Shock
American Boy - Estelle

For me a good workout song has to either have a good pumping beat or some emotional attachment (for me). I find if it brings out a strong emotion I'll pump up my intensity...
