Hi everyone!

I would love to hear what songs others like to workout to. With several legal websites available to download songs from (like Napster), its fairly easy to burn your own custom workout CD. I'm finding the hard part is picking out what songs to get. So please share!

I'll start. I made my current workout CD from CD's that I already own. Here are some of my favorites:

Kryptonite - 3 Doors Down
Heavy - Collective Soul
Crush - Jennifer Paige
Push It - Garbage
Never - Moving Pictures (Footloose soundtrack)
I'm Free - Kenny Loggins (Footloose)
Echa Pa; Lante [Spanish Cha-Cha Mix] - Thalía (Dance with me Soundtrack)
Jazz Machine - Black Machine (Dance with me)
Chinese Burn - Curve

One song I have always liked doing aerobics to (when I used to go to the gym many moons ago!) is "Good Vibrations" by Marky Mark (aka Mark Wahlberg). It's got a really good consistent beat, and I don't believe the words are too bad, from what I remember of it. However, now that I am paying more attention to what I listen to, I may need to look that one up and see waht the actual words are :D before I recommend in the future! :lol:

I like super cheesy pop music to work out to, I have a cd that I made of 80's stuff that I'm loving right now...

Pat Benetar - Hit me with your best shot
Survivor - Eye of the tiger
B-52's - Love Shack
Bobby Brown - My perogative
Bryan Adams - Summer of 69
Kenny Loggins - Danger zone
Duran Duran - Hungry like the wolf

Entire CD's that I listen to while I'm at the gym...
Shakira - Laundry Service (I skip through the slower sonds and come back to them when I'm stretching)
The soundtrack from Clueless
Justin Timberlake - Justified
Liz Phair - Exile in Guyville (not as pop-y but good for an angry girl sort of mood)
I also have a mix cd of different Jamiroquai songs that is fun, too
