Default Music that helps working out from becoming a bore.

Hello there!!!! I was wondering if people here can suggest musics that helps them workout better or makes working out fun. I tend to get bored with what I have on my ipod so I try to always look for upbeat musics that will make me keep moving. Personally, working out without music just leaves me less motivated. So please do suggest musics that contributed to a better workout experience.

Thank you

Anything rock and roll, especially from the 80s makes me want to move! Nice old hair bands: Duran Duran, Def Leppard, Poison, Motley Crue and Metallica. Great beat, speed and they can certainly jam!

First major goal to lose 10% of my 355lb weight Jan 1, 2013 (35.5lbs=319.5)!! MET IT ON FEB 2014!!
Next goal 20% of my 355lb weight (20% = 284#)
1 dancing marshmallow for every 5 pounds I lose to not look like one anymore!

Riot - Three Days Grace
One Step Closer - Linkin Park
Generation - Simple Plan

Clear Eyes, Full Heart, Canít Lose * The sweat you see when working out is the fat crying *
Pain is just weakness leaving the body
* I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

This might not be your cup of tea, but I always listen to audiobooks. I find something really easy (so no War and Peace, lol!). I end up doing chores to audiobooks too.You don't get the rhythm of course, but it occupies the mind. I run to my books and when my body gets painful, I concentrate on the story and it is really helpful. Plus, I only allow myself to listen when I am exercising or doing chores so I end up looking forward to the story even though I am physically doing something I might not inherently enjoy.

Audible.com has really helped me out in this respect - they sell audio books for download and I just download right into my MP3 player.

Ok, don't laugh but I have a folder on my IPOD called sexy. Yes. That's right! I have all those silly little (sometimes umm...rude) songs that girls sing about how hot they are and how everyone wants them (eg christina aguilera's woo hoo). They are dumb but they have a great beat and I feel more confident when I work out because heck, I want to be better than I am now at least.

I tried to send this via private msg, but I think you can't receive them as of yet.

I have a youtube acct and how I did this was, I reviewed the songs I liked and made a playlist—a couple actually. I use it on my laptop when I am on my treadmill. I hook my earphones up and run while the vids play. If you have a converter for your t.v. where you can pull the net up on your t.v., you can use uTube on your tv instead.
If I run outside, I use Pandora. If you've never used it before--it's a DREAM! It can be totally free, or you can buy it. Create a free account and you get 40 hrs/month free. All you do is create a playlist using the artist, then Pandora automatically plays music like the artist you entered. You can enter 1 name or more than 1. Never have to worry about hearing a bad song and if they select something you don't like, you can skip it or give it a "thumbs down" and they will never play that song in that particular playlist again!!
I run 11-12 min mile, but I could push to do more if I am motivated. The more I run, the better I get—naturally. I still have to walk some b/c of my back!

So, here is a list of the songs I have on my playlists. I like all types of music, so hopefully you will be able to mix something from this list. The ** songs indicate really fast tempo songs. The * songs denotes ones you should put at the front or as a cool down.
Hope this helps you reach a new goal in running

Hip Hop
* VIC Say Bow
**DJ Mingo Walk It Out Remix
* DMX Ruff Ryders Anthem (Explicit)

** MCC Down At the Twist n Shout
Jason Aldean Hicktown
Miranda Lambert kerosene

Buckcherry Crazy ***** (Explicit)
** Buckcherry Lit Up (Explicit)
** Buckcherry Next To You (Explicit)
Hoobastank Inside of You
Audioslave Show Me How To Live
** Nickleback One Last Run
** BEP Hey Mama (explicit)

* La Roux Bulletproof
** FatBoy Slim Kung Fu Fighting
** Avril Lavigne Girlfriend

Enrique Iglesias I Like It
Enrique Iglesias Dirty Dancer
Manian Welcome to the Club
kittyCat Dolls When I grow Up
kittyCat Dolls Wait A Minute
* Cascada Evacuate The Dancefloor
Kesha Tik Tok
Rhinna S&M
Lady Gaga Born This Way
I'm a 13.1!!

I really can't name any of the specific songs on my MP3 player.....but they are all from 2005 (club hits, mostly from one hit wonders)....which is the last time I worked out (before having my son!)

This music inspires me as it brings me back to a time when I was more fit.

So, maybe if you can think of some music from your teens/twenties/early thirties that used to pump you up, you'd feel that old energized feeling!

Press It Up
She wanna be down
Watch dem roll

Bon Bon
Descarada (dance)

Flo Rida:
In the Ayer
Right round

Sexy b!tch

Scooter (the best for keeping running pace):
The Question is What is the Question
Rock Bottom (I could have this song on constant 'repeat' for like 20 mins solid and never get sick of it)
How much is the Fish?
Crank it Up
