Default Songs that get you going/inspire you

I love putting songs on my iPod to listen to during my workout. What are some that get you going or have an awesome beat?

Some I especially like:

Anything by the Aquabats - such a happy zippy band
So What by P!nk
Don't Stop Believin' by Journey
Grace Kelly by Mika
I Feel Love by the Blue Man Group
Tubthumping by Chumbawumba
Personal Jesus by Depeche Mode
Escape by Enrique Iglesias
Weapon of Choice, Rockafeller Skank, and Wonderful Night - all by Fatboy Slim
Hungry Like the Wolf - Duran Duran
What You Waiting For? - Gwen Stefani
Walking on Sunshine - Katrina & the Waves
I Melt With You - Modern English
Here it Goes Again - Ok Go
I'm a Believer - Smash Mouth (Monkees too!)
That's Not my Name - the Ting Tings

I LOVE They Might Be Giants too Know most of those on your list.

Save Ferris does a rockin' version of Come on Eileen.

Temperature by Sean Paul is good too.

I like the song "Trains" from Slumdog Millionaire. I like Lady Gaga, Shakira, Britney Spears, Rihanna--any of their fast songs.

I also am a little old school--I have SuperFreak downloaded on my IPOD. LOL. I also have some old Eminem! LOVE HIM!

Oh, also--love the Cure--Just Like Heaven.

I love most of the ones already mentioned! Thighs - Love most of Lady Gaga's and Rihanna's stuff too! I wish I could play Eminem, but my kids are usually listening.

I would add:

Wakin' Up in Vegas - Katy Perry
Pocketful of Sunshine - Natasha Bedingfield
Battlefield - Jordin Sparks (I love this one - she wrote it about love, but so much applies to this journey I am on - especially when she sings "Better go and get your armor" and "I never meant to start a war")
It's Not My Time - 3 Doors Down
Bleeding Love - Leona Lewis (especially the dance mix)

I'm a bit old school, too.. there is a version of Kung Fu Fighting by Fatboy Slim that is soooo good to workout to.. especially if you do punches & kicks! Another old school that is fun - Love Shack by the B52's!

Good suggestions in this thread...

I have Love Shack by the B52's also.
Abraxas Pool ex-members of Santana, google for song samples
Kenny Loggins Footloose
I have many Stray Cat (rockabilly) songs
Get Down Tonight (KC and the Sunshine Band)
I also have a lot of New Orleans carnival music. Buckwheat Zydeco has some good music. Google Mardi Gras party and there should be a lot of samples.
Shipping up to Boston - Dropkick Murphys
Walk Like an Egyptian - Bangles
