I'm surprised it's not on here yet, but Eye of the Tiger!!! SUCH a dang good song. I'm working on putting a workout playlist together, not much there yet, but I've got She Is Beautiful by Andrew WK, I'm Money by Zebrahead, The Final Countdown by Europe, and of course I'm Sexy and I Know It by LMFAO. :D

Sexy and I know It - LMFAO "Wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle!"
Ain't No Rest for the Wicked - Cage the Elephant
South Central - One Minute Silence
Renegades of Funk - Rage Against the Machine
Still Dre - Dr Dre & Snoop Dogg
Another Victory - Cypress Hill
Folsom Prison Blue - Johnny Cash
Trick Me - Kelis
Just Dance - Lady Gaga
Like Glue - Sean Paul
Pressure - Skindred
Hey Ya - Outkast
Chin Check - NWA & Snoop Dogg

This forms some of my current workout playlist and if I really don't feel in the mood, I put this on and before I know it I've got my workout clothes on and I'm moooooving! (Some of them are a little explicit btw)

Any upbeat, fast paced song by Rihanna. I mostly play a Rihanna song to workout to, I like "Only girl in the world". Or, anything upbeat by Pink.

To get myself motivated to exercise, I usually play "On the Floor" by JLo, "The Time" by Black-Eyed Peas, and "Don't Stop" by Ke$ha. Especially in the afternoon when I take a break and go for a walk... those songs get me going emoticon

My theme song is "Do Your Thing" by Basement Jaxx, so it always makes me smile. But what really gets me going is "Beautiful" by Akon and Kardinal Offishal (sp?) or "The Authority Song" by John Cougar Mellencamp - one or the other is always first on my running playlists, so I always have that sense of excitement and joy! Something good is about to happen :-)

More- Usher, Tonight is the Night- Outasight, Good Feelin'- Flo-Rida, pretty much any Black Eyed Peas song

None are songs I ordinarily listen to, but I found them on satellite radio and they're all definitely songs to get you moving! My husband made fun of me while downloading my "running mix" onto my ipod. Hey, whatever gets me moving!
