I absolutely Love PJ Harvey, Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea. Not all tunes are workout material but there are several that totally make me feel like a rock chick!

Imogen Heap!! Especially the album with Frou Frou has some good upbeat music. Her latest one I listen to at the gym a lot - that would be iMegaphone, fave song is Headlock.

I'm also into Britney Spears and Madonna remixes for the gym. I've got about 10 remixes for Madonna's latest "Miles Away" song!!

Thin White Duke (Jacques Le Cont) does good Madonna and Gwen Stefani remixes.

O!M!G! "Alternachicks" I am so excited I found this!!!!! And inspired. I checked out Spinnerette on blip and I love them. I plan on lurking here often as I never blossomed from a new wave chick to truely punk. Just went to frumpy. But I plan on pulling out a few celebratory surprises when I reach my goal weight...even if it's just my first tattoo and maybe a rad haircut...GRIN. I know you all will truely be my inspiration.

Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea is probably my favorite album of hers, but when you just want to be nuts Uh Huh Her is the best to blast!

Other good female-lead bands:

The Concretes
The Waitresses

The Wayward Bus/Distant Plastic Trees combo album of the Magnetic Fields is fantastic and has all female singing (and a lot of spectacular songs).
Losing again after maintaining for more than four years (mostly in the 135-140 range).
