Well I guess I’m the strange one here.  I work out to a mix of songs from Nine Inch Nails, some are fast for when I’m running, and then slower ones for jogging.

I love high-energy, "club" type songs. They seem to have a natural pulse-pumping beat!

2 More Years by Bloc Party gets me pumped up. (That’s how long Fiance and I did long distance)

Tapes n Tapes is usually pretty good for workouts and some Arcade Fire works pretty well too.

I second Britney!  Also, love working out to Pink and Gwen Stefani…not sure if it’s a "girl power" thing or what?!

Score! I love this thread! I was just on the internet the other night looking for new songs, because it had been AGES since I’d replaced my workout set list and was getting seriously demotivated half way through my workouts.

Thanks for all your ideas, ladies!

Some of the stuff might make some people gag, but hey, I’m just trying to pay it forward here!

Gwen Stefani — Wind it up and Crash

Kanye West — Gold Digger, Workout, Jesus Walks (very very good when you’re on your last legs and might die!)

Danity Kane — Damaged

Twista — Celebrity Overnight

Usher — Bad Girl or Yeah

Britney Spears — Radar

Anything by Kylie Minogue

Most Beyonce, especially Ring the Alarm and Check Up on It and Keep Giving Your Love to Me

Katy Perry — Hot N Cold

Natasha Beddingfield — Pocketful of Sunshine

Jay Z — Pretty much anything, but that’s probably just me!

I wish I had my player with me here at work and I’d lend a few more, but that’s all I can think of right now!

Holy cow!  Maybe it’s my age, but I don’t know half of the songs mentioned.  My list is as follows:

"Africa" by Toto (I am a child of the ’80s)

"Shippin’ off to Boston" by Dropkick Murphys

"T&A" by The Stones

"Bottle of Smoke" by The Pogues

"Little Red Corvette" by Prince

"Scarlett Begonias" by The Grateful Dead

I agree with many others that Britney is the way to go! 🙂

If you’re a talk radio person (like I am), you might also consider downloading podcasts from NPR. It’s commercial free, and some of the segments (i.e. The Story and Public Radio International’s This American Life) are really interesting. 

I also sometimes listen to audiobooks, which can be free if you get them from the library.

Good luck! 🙂
