I really like electronic/triphop/dreampop stuff to lose myself in during workouts. I like the pop stuff too, but a lot of times, I find myself listening to Daft Punk, Justice, LCD Soundsystem, Royksopp, and others.

04-03-2011, 11:04 PM
Waka Waka by Shakira ALWAYS gets me moving! Total energy buzz!

04-04-2011, 10:25 AM
I have slightly different tastes. Some of these are general public approved, others you might not want to seek out if you're light hearted. :)

Arcade Fire - We Used to Wait
The Black Keys - Howlin' For You
Iron Maiden - Run to the Hills
Lamb of God - Something to Die For
Megadeth - Hangar 18
Dethklok - Bloodlines
Slipknot - Psychosocial
Trivium - Into the Mouth of **** We March

Oooh, Muffin! I like your music too!

04-04-2011, 11:35 AM
Thanks. :) My MP3 player is a little ecclectic but is mostly various types of metal. It can be offputting to many, especially women. It's a pretty male dominated music style.

While these songs may not be as fast as something poppy and upbeat, it gets me going and gives me a rush because it takes me back to concerts, and the feeling of being smack in the middle of a mosh pit. I always could hold my own in them, fat or not. :D

04-04-2011, 02:50 PM
I have a fair mix of many genres, but it's pretty toploaded with metal/classic rock/psychadelic rock, industrial and others. I love my electronic music, but I was raised with metal and rock.

04-04-2011, 02:52 PM
OOOOH I am so glad this thread was posted! I am always on the lookout for something new to get me moving! My list is changing as new music comes out.

Here's some of mine and hopefully I will not overlap some that have already been mentioned.

Enrique Iglesias feat. Pitbull: I Like It
Metro Station: Shake It
Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch: Good Vibrations

I Need a Doctor by Dr. Dre and Eminem! :carrot:

Omg! I'm obsessed with this song!

I, too, listen to music when I am working out that I would never listen to otherwise. I am a sucker for pink, kesha, and lady gaga.

Love this thread!

04-18-2011, 05:39 AM

I have a HUGE workout playlist, but I have to say that some of my absolute favourites are:

St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion) -- John Parr
Eye of the Tiger -- Survivor
It's Raining Men -- The Weather Girls (or the Geri Halliwell version, if you prefer)
Numb/Encore -- Jay-Z vs. Linkin Park
Yeah! -- Usher, Lil Jon and Ludacris
You Can Do It -- Ice Cube

I've gotten to the point where I can't get a good rhythm going without my iPod. (Like someone else here has said, there's a lot of "**** you" breakup type songs on my playlist, but that's mostly because I like to imagine how my ex's face would look if he saw me after I reach my goal.) :D

04-18-2011, 01:32 PM
My playlist changes almost every week! I have to keep it updated or else I get really bored. Here are some of my current faves:

You Lie--The Band Perry
(Don't Fear) The Reaper--Blue Oyster Cult
Hella Good--No Doubt
Be Good To Yourself--Journey
Bad Girlfriend--Theory of a Deadman
Feel Good Inc.--The Gorillaz
Firework--Katy Perry
So What--Pink!

Some club remixes by Mariah Carey are amazing for cardio work outs. They're each like 10 minutes and very upbeat. Give them a listen on YouTube. Trust me they're amazing to work out to!!

Fantasy (Def Club Mix)
Honey (Classic Mix)
Say Somethin' (Morales Stereo Experience)
Heartbreaker/If You Should Ever Be Lonely (Junior Club Mix)
Always Be My Baby (Def Club Mix)

She has like 6 more too. They all have new vocals that go with the beat too. Very good stuff!

04-18-2011, 09:26 PM
My Body by LSG
Toxic Brittney Spears
That Girl-Marques Houston
Whatever you want-Tony Toni Tone

04-18-2011, 09:28 PM
I like to listen to slow music while I am working out because it relaxes me does anyone else do this? My favorite is 90s RnB

04-19-2011, 03:42 PM
This might be a weird one but I recently added When Will My Life Begin from Tangled :) hehe

yoyo mama
04-19-2011, 10:18 PM
Wow great suggestions! How about a suggestion of an entire CD I could buy to make it easy? I'm more of 60s through 80s person. :dizzy:
