workout music - what do you listen to?

Hi everyone,

I am bored with the contents of my ipod and need to stock up on some good workout music. What do you listen to that really energizes you? My favorite of late is Madonna's new CD but I've kind of worn it out. Also have some Brazilian music, Buddha Bar (not the chillout CD obviously).. but they are boring me to death now and I'm stuck for ideas. help!

I've heard 80's music is the way to go...

I listen to Thousand Foot Krutch - It's impossible not to get in the groove with them going. They even have a song called "Move". Makes my feet twitch and I usualy set my pace to their beat. You can check them out at - they stream some music at their site.

There is a hip hop station I listen to that does a 12 noon workout. They really pump it up and give exercise/diet tips instead of commercials for 25 minutes. I tape that and listen to it when I workout. It is fabulous.

80s music is good for me if I have to listen to music, because the songs are generally lively and energetic and the tempos are mostly good for working out. And I graduated in 1984...

But mostly, I don't listen to music. I work out outside and prefer the sounds of birds, water, breeze, whatever.

Workout Music

With whatever I'm doing to exercise, I like to download the latest hits. Here is an example of some of the songs currently on my mp3 player:
Golddigger-Kanye West
Ridin' Dirty-Chamillionaire
Holla' Back Girl-Gwen Stefani
Whoop That Trick-three 6 Mafia (From Hustle & Flow Movie)
Plus others I can't think of off the top of my head.
Hope that gives you some ideas!

thanks everyone, that's great! I appreciate it. Didn't occur to me to listen to oldies, or 80's music.. I will dig out my Duran Duran CDs!!!!

What about electronic dance music?? (If that's even a genre.. hopefully you know what I mean?) Any compilations of 80's or 90's dance music that anyone can think of? (Even if it's cheesy, I don't care!! I just need a change.)

If you're a Billy Joel fan, "Running on Ice" will make anyone run!

I love Broadway, there are a bunch of songs on the Rent soundtrack that get me moving....Rent, Take Me Out, Another Day, La Vie Boheme...

The Jock Jams cds have some really upbeat and fun workout music. It's mostly stuff from the early to mid 90's. If you want something really fast, check out the mortal kombat soundtrack.
