I am in serious need of a playlist refresh and am looking for some suggestions. So far I’ve got some Outkast, Sugarland, and random Kanye Gold digger. I’m also working on getting some old school Madonna (Immaculate Collection, maybe True Blue). Any ideas? FYI this is mostly for running.

I pick any songs that I’m really digging at the moment, because I like to sing along in my head. But some of my staples are:
– Don’t Stop Believin’ (Journey)
– Livin’ on a Prayer (Bon Jovi)
– Rock your Body (Justin Timberlake)
– Shout (Joan Jett)
– Numb (Linkin Park)
Mostly, I love songs with strong and fast beats because it regulates my stride, makes me run faster, and pushes me harder!

I often run on Guns and Roses greatest hits… ACDC, Aerosmith, Red Hot Chili Peppers… Mostly, any classic rock with a good beat are my go-to for running.

I totally listen to an 80s station on Pandora.

Ohh I love playlist suggestions, here are my recent adds and some favorites:
1) Run This World (Girls) Beyonce
2) Rumor Has It- Adele
3) Remember the Name – Fort Minor
4) Shake It Out – Florence + The Machine
5) Not Fair – Lily Allen
6) Time to Pretend – MGMT
7) Pumped Up Kicks – Foster the People (if you’re not sick of it by now)
8) Still Dirrty- Christina Aguliera
9) Shake It- Metro Station
10) Work That Mary J Blige
11) Fast as you can- Fionna Apple
12) Runaway Baby- Doo-wops and Hooligans
13) Bulletproof- La Roux
Sorry I may have gone overboard there, but gives you a couple of options to look into. I also will look for songs I like via Pandora or 8tracks has workout mixes already made for you. Just gotta find ones that you like! 8tracks has a good iPhone app too that got me through some long runs during marathon training when I needed some extra variety and introduction to different music.

My current “Running” playlist on my iPod consists of:
Born this way- Lady Gaga, Call on me- Eric Prydz, Part of me- Katy Perry, Sexy chick- David Guetta, Right round- Flo Rida, OMG- Usher, Party rock anthem- LMFAO, and Stronger- Kanye West
It changes periodically, but these are my favorites right now. They’re all very fast paced, which motivate me to go faster!
