"Pour it up" -Rihanna
"Work b*tch" Britney Spears
"Worst Behavior" -Drake
"Schoolin' life" -Beyonce
"Livin' it up" -Ciara
"Twerk it" -Busta ft.Nicki Minja
"Gorilla" -Bruno Mars
"Come & get it" -Selena Gomez (shhh lol)

I like slower songs when I am warming up or doing free weights. And more upbeat/aggressive songs when I am FIGHTING through the harder leg stuff :^:

Thanks you guys! I'm gonna try to listen and pick some out before I go for my walk today. :)

Happybug, you must be about my age to have kung foo fighter and eye of the tiger on your list. :)

And diamond, I think I have a girl-crush on Ciara now. I had heard of her and heard a bit of her music, but not paid a lot of attn. I'm usually not into that diva stuff. But WOW, her videos are amazing! Makes me wanna be 25 and 5'10".

I gotta say though, in Ride (now you gotta go watch it!), she looks so amazing in the black exercise pants and not overly sexy bra top and high top sneakers, but then just kinda ridiculous and embarrassing in the overly skimpy bathing suit-type thing with the cut out belly and heels. Ewww! So hot in that first black outfit, though. I would make a sucky stylist, but I wish they had consulted me on that! lol

Anyway, I downloaded three of her songs. Yay!

Sorry longer list than I meant to post, but start scrolling through my iPod...:o
Also, came across a blog called Fit bottomed girls, and noticed they have
A few work out lists. They seem to cover a few genres and type of list such as best of, reader picks, trainer picks, haven't really gone through them yet though, but will.

I do not have cable so am always behind on certain shows. This can be hard but also fun to do the marathon sessions. I'm glad you found a couple new songs.

Roar Katy Perry
Not afraid Eminem
Hey ya Outkast
Keep Rolling
Lots of Michael Jackson
Sliver Nirvana

I like lots of different music but prefer rocking music. I love a rocked up cover of a pop song like Womanizer.
