I'll show you mine if you show me yours...

Yep that's right, I'm ready for a little show-n-tell. Anyone in?

Here's the deal. I've tweeted, texted, commented, whined, begged, and cajoled. I really need some new songs for my work-out play list. Julochka (thanks lady!) was the only one that answered, and she only gave me one suggestion. So I thought maybe I'd show you what I have on my work-out iTunes list and you could give me some more suggestions.

Walk This Way    Aerosmith  
Just Push Play     Aerosmith  
21 Things I Want In A Lover   Alanis Morissette
dirty litte secret   The All american rejects
Potential Breakup Song    Aly & AJ 
Girlfriend    Avril Lavigne 
Dancing With Myself    Billy Idol  
3    Britney Spears 
Womanizer    Britney Spears   
Pour Some Sugar On Me    Def Leppard 
Move Your Body    Eiffel 65  
Sugar, We're Goin Down    Fall Out Boy 
Fergalicious    Fergie   
Paralyzer    Finger Eleven  
I Ran (So Far Away)    A Flock of Seagulls  
American Idiot    Green Day  
SexyBack     Justin Timberlake 
I Kissed a Girl    Katy Perry 
Bad Romance    Lady GaGa 
Shake It    Metro Station
So What  P!nk 
Hotel Room Service    Pit Bull          
SOS   Rihanna 
Panama    Van Halen 
Don't Trust Me    3Oh!3 

So there ya have it. That's what I run to. I like it loud with a good, fast beat that will make me forget I'm sweating my a$$ off.

Thoughts? Ideas? Inspiration??

tulpen said...

Yeah. I don't run. Or exercise at all for that matter, unless you count that case, my soundtrack is whatever TV show we got distracted from.

Anything Fits A Naked Man said...

Best running song EVER: Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back." I'm completely serious! Only problem is, it makes you want to dance, so it throws off the running cadence a bit! But TOTALLY worth it!!

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

Black Eyed Peas and is great to work out to!
I found you via Tulpen's comments and shared a similar story to yours- nice to meet you-

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

Oh I should add that since I started listening to Pandora Radio I usually work out to that- it's like a personal yet varied playlist.

Sameera said...

I actually prefer motivating numbers like:
-- Hey Sexy lady (Shaggy)
-- Girlfriend (Pussycat dolls)

Try'em and all the best :)


Jessi J. Walton said...

The whole Shockvalue and Shockvalue II cds by Timbaland are both really good. If you like JT, you will like those.

Fidgeting Gidget said...

Cowboy by Kid Rock
Break Stuff - Limp Bizkit
Ice Cream Paint Job - Dorrough
Without Me - Eminem

Those would be on my list IF I had a workout playlist. You know, if I worked out. :)

I have a short play list cause I usually only do a quick 20 minute bike ride. I am probably going to steal some of your play list! lol

Megan said...

I'll do it. soon. i promise!

Rose Anne B said...

WOW I'll have to call up some of these and see if I like them too! Basically I've been walking to ABBA's greatest hits - just love the beat and do up to 5-6 km per hour. I'm getting tired of the same music too so am looking for CDs to buy but no luck in Canada unless I order from - that means USA shipping charges - pity!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Have you got anything there that will make me run? Really. I want to run. But the couch keeps sucking me in. I swear.

Shirley Landis VanScoyk said...

Macy Gray has an album coming out June 23 with a song "Kissed It" which I think should be in your play list. ALSO, BLONDIE! what ails you? CALL ME is a great work out song!

Anonymous said...

I used this album from Itunes, Greatest Workout Hits of All Time. They're actually all really recent and I love it. And I supplement that with the "Best of Biggest Loser"

Joanna Jenkins said...

The theme song from "Rocky" and "Indiana Jones" aer both on my play list-- They change it up a big and help me MOVE faster.

I like a lot of Nickelback for working out. Try "Something in Your Mouth". It's funnier than hell so it also makes you smile while you're working out.
