I can't work out without music, and the BPM's have to match PERFECTLY with my walking/running or it totally throws me off. I like to listen and run to the beat and just zone out.
I'll post my full list later, but one of my favorite bands to jog to is H.I.M. For example, "Right Here In My Arms" is such an awesome jogging song. And their new album has so many songs right in the perfect tempo. Plus... they're HIM. They're only the freaking best ever.
My playlist would confuse a lot of people. I've got everything from HIM to Tool to Wham! to David Bowie, Billy Idol, Muse, Christina Aguilera, Das Tekno, Sum 41 --
Sum 41 is GREAT running music. **** Song for the win.
Candyman by Christina Aguilera is a great one.
Outkast! Hey Ya! Such a good running song.
But my number one FAVORITE song to jog to right now is Magic by B.o.B. I sometimes run it through like three times in my jog. LOL
