I need some workout music recommendations!

Now that I have a new computer that can actually connect to the internet, it's time to download some new workout music. Basically I've been listening to the same few mixes of workout music for a loooong time, and it's time for a change.

I've got a few songs in mind already that I've heard and immediately said, "That would be a GREAT song to run to!" It's just a start, but here's what I've come up with:

Kanye West's "Love Lockdown" is definitely leading the charge on this front.


And there's also this gem by Kat DeLuna, although I'm told that Busta Rhymes isn't actually in the record version of the song.


I'll be honest, I also fell in love with this song during several of those dance-y artsy reality competition shows. But I really don't like Lil Wayne, so... we'll see.



This is a great start (in my opinion!), but it certainly won't make up a whole new workout play list! So I turn to you, readers. What's your favorite workout song? What song really gets you pumped up to push through and finish your workout?

"Flux" by Bloc Party [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttcboE1GrNg] is a necessity in my workouts. The drum line just gets in my feet and the breakdown is great for that "push through" exhilaration.

And "Go-Getter Greg" by Ludo [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6xk6GJyd6A] is just story-tellingy enough that it makes a few minutes go really quickly.

Lady Gaga's "Just Dance" [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M65zI9LH-as] is just fun.

"Boom" by Anjulie [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fCERn_1hgg] is a great warm-up/cool-down song. It's also amazing for dancing around your room.


PS: the captcha for this comment is "fattles". For some reason this is way funnier than it should be.

My absolute favorite right now is Lady Gaga's Lovedance. I can put that song on repeat and never get tired of it. It's so upbeat and energizing. My all-time favorite workout album is Madonna's Confessions on a Dance Floor.

Thanks both of you for your recommendations! I just downloaded Lady Gaga's full album to fuel more work0ut energy. And Ann, "Boom" is strangely enchanting - thanks for tipping me off!
