Music makes the world go 'round.

I am in search for new workout music for my ipod. I need help. The stuff I've been listening to works. So well in fact that I'm inspired. I've noticed that when I am on my long walk and a really good, upbeat song comes on, I get the urge to run!

I know, right? Who would've thought.

The problem is very few of the songs on it are fast and furious. So my question for you is...tell me one or two of your favorite workout songs or a song that you can't help but start grooving to when you hear it.

Don't be embarrassed. The ones I have ready to go are:

Since You've Been Gone
- Kelly Clarkson
Who Knew - Pink

So bring it on! Can't wait to hear your suggestions.

*Laura, you should have a huge list for me since you run marathons. A whole lot of music can be played while running 26.2 miles. She runs MARATHONS people!

Fast-paced Fergie and Black Eyed Peas songs are good ones!

Pump It by BEP's is one!

Vertigo by U2
The Middle Jimmy Eat World
Personal Jesus depeche mode
Bamboleo The Gypsy Kings

I know...I'm so au currant. Just floppin' it old skool. I'm getting back on the horse today...that's after a week of Halloween candy and last nights pizza orgy. Say a prayer for me, will ya?!xo

Working out is not really my thing, but when I want to have some feel-good music, I look for stuff from the 80's or 90's that was fun and popular during the time I was in high school. You know those songs that you and your friends "jammed out" to, while cruising or whatever other cool car stuff you did back in the day. Maybe some UB40 red, red wine or a little gin and juice- of course those may only motivate you to run straight to the bar, but it will still be fun.
