I like the song "Trains" from Slumdog Millionaire. I like Lady Gaga, Shakira, Britney Spears, Rihanna--any of their fast songs.

I also am a little old school--I have SuperFreak downloaded on my IPOD. LOL. I also have some old Eminem! LOVE HIM!

Oh, also--love the Cure--Just Like Heaven.

I love most of the ones already mentioned! Thighs - Love most of Lady Gaga's and Rihanna's stuff too! I wish I could play Eminem, but my kids are usually listening. :lol:

I would add:

Wakin' Up in Vegas - Katy Perry
Pocketful of Sunshine - Natasha Bedingfield
Battlefield - Jordin Sparks (I love this one - she wrote it about love, but so much applies to this journey I am on - especially when she sings "Better go and get your armor" and "I never meant to start a war")
It's Not My Time - 3 Doors Down
Bleeding Love - Leona Lewis (especially the dance mix)

I'm a bit old school, too.. there is a version of Kung Fu Fighting by Fatboy Slim that is soooo good to workout to.. especially if you do punches & kicks! Another old school that is fun - Love Shack by the B52's!
