    Cool Workout Music

    I am getting back into running after a knee injury which come to find out was a result of improper rehab after my broken wrist, broken ankle injury last year. I have been working on a playlist for the short runs that I have been doing.


    So far this is my favorite




    Do you have any playlists or songs that push you through your workouts?

    I listen to a lot of dance music when exercising. My favorite song to work out to is the Attention deficit remix of Made By Monkey's "I Try."

    I think The Distance by Cake is a great one to run to!

    depends on my mood - when i first got back into it, i had a playlist where i'd throw songs that made me move more and then hit shuffle.
    had a lot of dance/pop stuff and then some stuff i actually would listen to too (arcade fire, tori, bjork, pj harvey...)

    lately i've been doing albums...marina & the diamonds, sigur ros (just saw them last monday), tori, and santigold(used that one today) have been in recent rotations
    sigur ros really got me running faster than the others, and tori live 99.

    I like pop and dance music when I work out. I have one spin teacher who plays classic rock and while I love her, I find it hard to get into listening to these songs.

    My music is a lot of Metallica, Manowar (don't judge) and Iron Maiden. The rhythm of the drums get the feet moving and the adrenaline flowing. The first song on my list is Iron Maiden - Hallowed be They Name. I'm well into a mile before that thing ends. The pacing is just right. Garbage - Why Do You Love Me? is perfect for pacing as well.

    Yes. Gimme More is my favourite workout song at the moment. I really only listen to pop, dance and hip-hop while exercising. This weeks playlist has been:

    I Like That - Houston
    Rump Shaker - Wreckx N Effect
    Teardrops - Womack and Womack
    Bad Romance - Lady Gaga
    Lose Control - Missy Elliot
    Sexy Bitch - Akon (I KNOW!!)
    Good Vibrations - Marky Mark ()
    Song for Mutya - Groove Armada
    Poison - Bell Biv Devoe
    Backstreets Back - Backstreet Boys (And now any last shred of credibility I had is gone )

    As for Garbage, I love "Metal Heart" and "As Heaven is Wide" on a playlist.

    Thank you so much to everyone for the replies. I remember a lot of songs I used to run to as well as new ideas, all thanks to this thread!


    I love Portishead's "Machine Gun" for the pacing.
