I couldn't survive without listening to my ipod when I walk. I listen to audio books and podcasts. Right now I'm listening to Pillars of the Earth. It's 40 hours long and an awesome book and my rule is that I can only listen to it when I walk. If I don't walk for a few days I get itchy cause I want to know what's going to happen next.

I've been doing podcasts when I'm at home on my exercise machine (mostly NPR "This American Life" or "Science Fridays" -- I'm a dork), and music when I'm out walking. I don't know why, but that's what I do! I just made a playlist for walking -- it's got 37 songs on it! Ha! Right now, 5 songs that get my booty shaking are...

"What's the Altitude" by Cut Chemist
"Mouthwash" by Kate Nash
"Toxic" by Britney Spears (I know! I know! Poor Britney. But this song makes me move!)
"The Underdog" by Spoon
"I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor" by Artic Monkeys

Great thread!

I have a running playlist - songs that are the perfect tempo for jogging at 5 or 6 mph. My top five of the moment (and this changes a LOT ) are:

1. Sour Cherry - The Kills
2. I Want to Save You - Something Corporate
3. Lose Yourself - Eminem
4. Girl Like That - Matchbox Twenty
5. Sk8er Boi - Avril Lavigne (this song is kind of annoying, but the beat is perfect)

Ya know, interestingly enough, sometimes I don't need high energy, hip hop, rock your body music to get going. (usually, yes though) but sometimes slow, soothing relaxing music keeps me focused, concentrated and centered. So sometimes I go Jewel, Sarah McLaughlin, that route. Anyone else?

The Twist - (newer version by) Chubby Checker and The Fat Boys

Why so many different music styles? They all have good beats.

I like like a nice mix of strong beats. Kanye is just for fun.

Kanye West - Workout plan
Mason vs. Princess Superstar - Perfect Exceeder (Best lyrics: "Watch me work it, I'm perfect!")
Ida Corr Vs Fedde Le Grand - Let Me Think About It
Janet Jackson ft Khia - So Excited (Bimbo Jones Club Remix)
Maroon 5 (Feat. Rihanna) - If I Never See Your Face Again
Shapeshifters - Lola's Theme
Bodyrockers - I Like The Way You Move

Perfect Exceeder and Let me think about it are the songs that the intro music to the 2007 Victoria's Secret show was mixed together from. Incidentally Bodyrockers was in the soundtrack the year before that. They always have some good energetic music in the VS show.
