First, can we maybe make this a sticky? I see this request a lot and it would be nice to have one thread where people can go to as a constant resource!

NOTE/Dislaimer: My exercise playlists are not representative of my typical musical tastes.

Here are some good ones that get me going a little faster:

-Womanizer-Britney Spears
-American Boy-Estelle featuring Kanye West
-Ska from my college days and No Doubt
-Disturbia, Please Don't Stop the Music-Rihanna
-Kelly Clarkson's faster stuff
-Pink's faster stuff

I'm looking forward to reading more suggestions!

I am living in the 80s lately :) I have been listening to itunes Radio Big R 80s radio. Usually when I'm at home, I'll put it on and listen to it while I'm doing whatever.

Shakira - Hips Don't Lie, Don't Bother, Whereever Whenever, Eyes Like Yours, La Tortura (can't understand this one but it's upbeat and a super cool music video LOL), adding She Wolf as soon as CD comes out
Samantha Fox - I Wanna Have Some Fun
Divinyls - I Touch Myself, Back To the Wall
Sweet Sensation - Take It While It's Hot

Im so glad you asked this! I am so tickled with what I am listening to right now and I wanted to share it with you guys cause its a super great cd for walking and running, ya know, it gets ya goin...

Michael Jackson-Blood on the Dancefloor

There are a few new songs on there plus there are remakes of some of his previous songs, but made with a Re-MIX.

Its awesome! And I do love me some Michael Jackson. Bless his heart. And those of you who think 'why is she listening to a child molester'? I seriously think that whole issue was fabricated by money hungry people....I believe he is and was innocent.

I love Maxwell, but I can't work out to him. So I am really on Prince, MJ, 80s Madonna, well, anything from the 80s especially 80s hip hop.

08-05-2009, 12:14 PM
Thanks everyone for the ideas.

And really, they don't have to be songs for working out. I am just wanting some new songs for general, everyday listening :D

08-05-2009, 01:04 PM
Great music I've been into lately:
-Jose Gonzales
-Fleet Foxes
-Bon Iver
-Sara Watkins
-David Gray
-Yeah Yeah Yeahs

08-05-2009, 01:06 PM
My most favourite song in the world is :love: Rompin Shop by Vybz Kartel & Spice :love: I listen to it atleast 15 times a day.

Now, it is Jamaican reggae/dancehall. I don't know it would be your cup of tea or not, but a lot of my friends who aren't into reggae, love it. It's simply a-m-a-z-i-n-g :)

08-05-2009, 10:12 PM

I love love loove Modest Mouse, fav song of theirs changes all the time. Pretty much any of their albums except Sad Sappy Sucker are good. But I have to say their stuff isn't for everyone

And I'm going up to Nashville to see Xavier Rudd on Friday. He's a one man band from Aus (i think now living in Canada). Really good music!

Also recently really into the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Matt & Kim, Little Birdy (Little Birdy can be hard to find in the States, it's not on our iTunes. It could be on Limewire? I just ordered the cd on ebay), and Allison Weiss (local girl- she's on itunes and myspace)

I love all kinds of music (with the exception of Rap, R&B and heavy metal), so it would be hard to pick one favorite. But I do have a special place in my heart for John Mayer. I think he's incredibly wise beyond his years, a musical genious and I always anticipate what he'll do next. I'm really bummed he didn't go on tour this year. :(

Thank you, becca77 :hug:
