Oh, I love this topic.  I try to keep upbeat music on "workout"  playlists to help keep me moving.  Off the top of my head:

 Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel- Tavares

S.O.S. and Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! – ABBA

 anything from Death From Above 1979, The Teddybears, CSS, or The Go! Team

Le Disko – Shiny Toy Guns

The World Is Mine – David Guetta

Whenever, Wherever and Objection (Tango) – Shakira

 pretty much any popular 70s disco

And I Was A Boy From School- Hot Chip

Groove Is In The Heart- Deee-Lite

anything from Fatboy Slim

I Feel Love- Blue Man Group’s version

Mercy- Duffy

Emerge- Fischerspooner

Gut Feeling- DEVO

Days Go By- Dirty Vegas

Hands of Death (Burn Baby Burn)- Rob Zombie

… I love the high energy stuff for workouts.  I tend to mix in lots of early punk songs too.  I also agree with some of the earlier posts, like using Madonna, Prince and Beyonce.  Ooo also lots of early hip hop could be good too like Monie Love.

any Rhianna, Justin, Britney, Christina, or Madonna. My Fiance snuck some Metallica onto my iPod Shuffle and that actually gets me real pumped when it comes up when I’m running.

 Candyman – Christina and 4 Minutes – Madonna have awesome beats that keep me going at the end of a run.

if i’m on the elliptical or treadmill i like to listen to stuff that is a little harsher than what i would normally listen to. linkin park’s hybrid theory album is great for this, it makes me run so much faster than anything else. if i’m lifting weights i try to listen to stuff that is more fun and upbeat to keep me going.
