Default What are your Work Out Tunes?

Updating my Valentine's Day Ipod! Wondering what everyone likes to work out to?

Give me playlists people!

I like FAST songs that really keep me moving. Here is my current playlist (definitely a child of the 80s):

Pink - Get the Party Started
Grease - Better Shape Up (I always sing "I better shape up!")
Vickie Sue Robinson - Turn the Beat Around
Bonnie Tyler - Holding Out For A Hero (I am the hero!!)
Escape Club - Wild Wild West
Michael Sembello - Maniac (I'm a maniac, maniac...on the ellipti-cal)
Pretty Poison - Catch Me I'm Falling
Samantha Fox - Naughty Girls Need Love Too
Culture Club - I'll Tumble For Ya
Shakira - Hips Don't Lie (I just think of her gorgeous abs the entire song)
Tom Jones - Sex Bomb (Peppermint Jam remix, very fast!)
Bony M - Rasputin (relatively obscure 70s disco band, my parents had the 8 Track when I was a kid, so there is huge nostalgia factor. Definitely a good, fast workout song)
W-O-R-K - Bow Wow Wow in the USA
Miquel Brown - So Many Men
Irene Cara - Fame
Expose - Point of No Return
Tag Team - Whoop, There It Is!
Jamiroquai - Canned Heat
Neneh Cherry - Buffalo Stance
Paul Lekakis - Boom Boom Boom Let's Go Back to My Room
Christina Aguillera - Figher Remix
J. J. Fad - Super Sonic (the S is for SUPER!!)
Expose - Come Go With Me
2 In A Room - Wiggle It
Sheila E - Glamorous Life
SIX YEARS at maintenance weight!

I need a hero and Shakira's Hips Don't Lie are seriously popular Work-Out tunes. LMAO at the Maniac bit!

I like to mix it up a little bit. Here's my current playlist:

Celine Dion - I'm Alive (just a reminder)
Jamelia - Superstar (Great tune, heard it in Step Class)
Sarah Mclachlan - Hold On
Train - Ordinary (GREAT workout tune)
Renegade - STYX
John Mayer - Wheel
Aretha Franklin - RESPECT
Alicia Keys - If I Ain't Got You
I Hate Myself For Loving You - Joan Jett
John Mayer - Clarity
Fear - Sarah Mclachlan
Going Under - Evanescence
Nothing Left to Lose - Mat Kearney ( For a bit of irony )
I Love Rock and Roll - Joan Jett
I'm Coming Undone Wit It - Korn Remix
Tell Me - Diddy F. Christina A.
Karma - Alicia Keys
Love of My Life - Dave Matthews
Temperature - Sean Paul
Lose Yourself - Eminem (Gotta have this one!)
Sweet Home Alabama - Lynard Skynard
Family Portrait - Pink
We Belong - Pat Benatar
Rescue Me - Aretha Franklin
Toby Keith - Rodeo Moon

I use an Ipod shuffle, one of my newest toys from my Valentine hubby! It doesn't have a screen, but it will play through the list shuffled or in order.

I have a couple of them. For quick, get-in-get-out cardio:

30-minute Cardio Playlist (29:43)
Queen - I Want to Break Free
Gorillaz - Feel Good, Inc.
Green Day - American Idiot
Ben Folds - Rockin' the Suburbs
Cake - Short Skirt/Long Jacket
The White Stripes - Seven Nation Army
Pixies - Where is My Mind
Coldplay - Green Eyes

I've also got a longer playlist, for when I'm doing hour-long circuits, but I'm still tweaking it.

For my nightly stretching routine, I use songs that make me feel happy, nostalgic, and relaxed.

Stretching (24:20)
The Jackson 5 - ABC
Al Green - Let's Stay Together
ABBA - Fernando
10,000 Maniacs - More Than This
Barry Manilow - I Write the Songs
Ben E. King - Stand By Me
Billy Joel - Uptown Girl

I found a lot of great workout music suggestions at the websites for the various fitness mags (Shape, Fitness, Self) and by googling "workout playlist."
