Hello Everyone!!

I am trying to load my iPhone with some great workout music but I am stuck. If I go and sit in my car I bet lots would come to mind but it is freezing outside LOL. Any ideas?

I love all kinds of music so please share your ideas. I just need something that will keep me going from beginning to end.


P.S This whole time I was using Pandora and never loaded my iphone with music but now that I go to the gym a lot I am tired of hitting next on the Pandora radio stations LOL

I just bought Daft Punk's live album yesterday (Alive 2007) and it's awesome. I never used to listen to electronica/dance type stuff, but I'm really getting into it. Highly recommended.

If you run at all or like uptempo, wordless music, I highly recommend Podrunner <>. It has all sorts of mixes at various bpm, and I love running while listening to one of them -- it makes me feel like I'm starring in my own movie workout montage!

Okay, these songs never fail to make my booty move.

Now... the words might not be that great, but the beats is what really matters to me.

Pitbull Ft. Lil Jon - Krazy
Pitbull Ft Lil Jon - The Anthem
Rock This Party (Everybody Dance Now) - Bob Sinclar
Put Your Hands Up For Detroit - Fedde Le Grand
Camille Jones Vs Fedde Le Grand - The Creeps
Ida Corr vs Fedde Le Grand Let Me Think About It

These three songs have pretty much the same beat to them, but they're different, and I like them all.

Calabria-enur by Natasha
Pitbull Ft Lil Jon - The Anthem
Alex Gaudino feat. Crystal Waters - Destination Calabria

Anywho, tell me how you like them!

Not sure if you are into metal or not... but when I am running I like metal because of its Hard Driven Beats. Gets me to go-go-go.

I listen to:
Rage Against The Machine
System of a Down
Some old Stone Temple Pilots

Just to name a few. HTH.

A friend of mine recommended B.O.B by Outkast. If you can hear it I would like something like that. Its so I can get pumped on the cardio machines. Or even Pump it by Black Eyed Peas. Thats good too.

Yea, I have some system of a down and P.O.D in my iPod as well
