I have this made available on my Spotify account (MSDRPEPPER) - you can hear them all here: (you will have to copy and paste the link into a new line and take out the extra spaces, because SparkPeople doesn't allow complete HTML code in comments) http (standard colon and back slash) open.spotify.com /user/msdrpepper /playlist /635MquuXiiPJZ42UDpMiNy Report
My favorite music to play is Industrial, nothing gets me moving like Combichrist, VNV Nation, X-[RX], Wumpscut, Faderhead, Alice in wonderland, MSI, and starsailor, then throw in a some My Chemical Romance, Slipknot, Atreyu, Mudvayne, Devildriver, Mika, Florence and the Machine, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Down with Webster, Pitbull, David Guetta, and on and on, i have over 200 songs on my workout playlist, and it keeps growing and each song keeps me moving and pushes me to go when i dont want to move anymore. Though i will give props to industrial music for making me want to move, its very hard to not want to dance to any of them, its like techno with hard feelings LOL. Report
I am training for my first 5K so I have the NHS Couch to 5K on my ipod. I like the music, not sure who the artists are. What I really like is that the music sets up a pace and that helps me to keep going. Report

If you want a really great mix of songs to get you pumped during your workout, use Daft Punk's "Alive!" It's a live album that is mixed perfectly for an hour's worth of working out. I love it! Report

Right now my favorites are Metro -vincent black shadow, Disturbia - rihanna, Just dance- lady gaga, Somebody told me and Mr brightside by the killers, hot and cold-kate perry, Panic at the disco, Helene and I'm not ok-my chemical romance, gwen stefani-what you waiting for, little less conversation-elvis remix, dirty little secret, I'd do anything. those are for running but I have other stuff for more steady consistant pacing Report
I just got my IPod for Christmas and yet to set it up because I was given the nano and I want the touch with the speaker. Still trying to decide since folks say the touch has problems. But I made note of a lot of your playlist to choose from thanks so much Report
I love Beyonce's "Single Ladies" and "That's Not My Name" by the Ting Tings. Britney Spears's CD "Circus" is great workout music too. Report

Somebody Told Me by the Killers

I've been wanting to put together a workout playlist for AGES but at my gym, on the treadmills and elliptical trainers they have the thing where you can plug in your headphones and watch TV. I usually watch either E! or VH-1, or the local news if I'm there right after work. Maybe I'll work on my playlist this weekend! Report
I have my church choir singing praise & worship in my iPod. There's nothing like hearing their mighty praises as I push myself beyond what I thought I could do. It may not be the latest techno-beat stuff, & the beats per minute may be a little slower than some, but it sure helps to move me! Report
I'm going to check out everyone's favs and get some new tunes and motivation. I have lots of music on my IPOD to walk to, but I always go back to Meatloaf's Bat Outta Hell album. The tunes on that album always motivates me to keep going, and going, and going. Report
Amy Winehouse is one of my favorites. Such a messed-up person with such talent. Report
