Hi everyone,

I just got an IPod and I'm looking to add some stellar workout music to it. Anyone have any really good songs that get them pumped up to workout?

-Liz.

PS: I like ALL kinds of music...so don't be shy!

"Stand in the Rain" - Superchick (Christian band...but you might like it even if you don't typically listen to Christian music..they're REALLY awesome!!)

"Photograph" and "Saving Me" - Nickelback (I was just listening to those today )

I love Rascal Flatts "Melt" CD to workout to.

Oh sweettart, I love Christian music, RelientK and FiveIronFrenzy are two of my fav Christian bands! I hadn't thought of putting them on the ipod though..

Cinderpa, thanks I love the Foo FIghters, and the other ones sounds hard rockish/alternative enough to make me kill the eliptical! Thx a ton!

I love working out to 'Pon Da Replay by Rihanna or Pump It by the Black Eyed Peas. I also like Disturbed's Down with the Sickness.

I like all kinds of Christian music, but my 11 year old listens to stuff by Superchick mostly....and I've grown to LOVE it!!!! It's kinda alternative/pop I guess...I don't know. Stand in the Rain is my "theme song" for my running

Have fun with your ipod!!!!!

Great thread idea, I'm always looking for new stuff to feed my iPod with!

These are some of the songs that get me going at the moment:
  • "Two Shoes" by The Cat Empire
  • "Catch My Disease" by Ben Lee
  • "Mr. E's Beautiful Blues" by Eels
  • "Kryptonite" by 3 Dorrs Down
  • pretty much anything by Cake, especially "Comfort Eagle" and "Short Skirt/Long Jacket

Here is one of my personal favorites, ( just because I can imagine it raining all kinds of Vin Diesel's around me....): It's Raining Men by the Weather girls ( 70's music). Wonderful song to really get pumped up by for me!!!!
Otherwise, I am definitely a Queen freak, love to work out with them playing in my ears!! Any 70's music has a great beat, most people know what the song is and can sing along ( even in their head ) if they want to. My iPod is mainly 70's music with loads of disco, and of course Queen, with some 80's thrown in for good measure... hope this helps you!

I've got a couple of like 'oldies' type songs on mine like Journey and Queen and Final Countdown (! haha). I also do have the occasionally like hip-hoppy dance type song that I am occasionally in the mood for. I just had my sister send me "Get Low" because they played it in spinning and it's stuck in my head. Lol. I've also got a little bit of Britney on there..."Piece of Me" is ridiculously catchy, haha.

Majority of my stuff is rock/punk though. I like really intense stuff when I'm running for the most part. Right now I'm hooked on some stuff by Rise Against - The Good Left Undone and Worth Dying For in particular. I also love anything by My Chemical Romance.

Guys, I love ALL your suggestions. Everyone has put up atleast a few songs that I know and am adding to my iPod as I type this. Journey, oh my heart melts when I hear "small town girl" and I love love love rascal flatts! 3 doors down is so good too!

Man oh man, this is a good thread. There's just so many songs that you love but you forget about because they are not on the radio anymore!

Keep it going guys, I have lots of room left to put more songs in!

It has to have a beat for me to work out to, so even songs that I LOVE will not go on my MP3 unless they get me moving. And, I just read an article that said that research now indicates that working out to music causes you to burn more calories than watching TV or reading or just thinking because the beat gets you moving.

Having said that, a few of my fave's

Eminem - Lose Yourself (the edited version, though it doesn't help much because you know what they're blanking out) It's really inspirational, and I skip to it when I really need convincing that I should keep going

Kelly Clarkson - almost anything with a beat

Nickelback - Rock Star

Rihanna - Umbrella, SOS, Shut Up and Drive

Finger Eleven - Paralyzer

Matchbox Twenty - Disease

I second Queen and the 70's thing, especially the Doors

OH MAN U and Ur Hand is one of my favorites! So is Fighter by Christina Aguilera. I can't believe I forgot that one. I have my iPod in front of me this time...Mr Brightside by the Killers. I even have a few Spice Girls selections on here. Green Day has good stuff overall.

When I'm on the bike I need something that keeps me going. Metallica (yeah, I know, but it works ), Apocalyptica (great) and so on. With that music you can go for miles.
