I heard LCD Soundsytem (James Murphy) did an awesome running track for Nike called 45:33, which is the length of the piece of music. I've always wanted to check it out. They get me pretty pumped. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/45:33

I find anything with a good beat to it (that I like)...most of my favorite workout tunes are either from the early years of MTV (when they actually played music videos) and what I'd call Irish drinking songs (Dubliners, Gaelic Storm, Flogging Molly, Great Big Sea)...

I added the electronic cardio music station to my list. My boys were surprised when I had it playing.

I listen to a bit of everything. Recently, what's really gotten my adrenaline pumping are motivational songs like "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson. Songs that sing about overcoming obstacles in the face of defeat. A good beat is a must also. I have a whole playlist entitled Work It! dedicated to those intense fitness routines, if not I'd have to just keep skipping through songs. LOL

I also like listening to some pretty loud, driving music when I run - I like Disturbed alot, especially "The Warrior." Turns out the guys in the band are big MMA fans, and write songs inspired by the fights. That explains alot to me!emoticonemoticon

But I think I'll check out that Pandora station, just to see - Thanks!!!emoticon

When I'm not running I like country music, but that doesn't work to get my rhythm up. I've found that the best songs for running are the ones that my mom hated me listening to when I was a teen. So my playlist has a lot of Metallica, AC/DC, etc.

With you on my team and me on yours we are bound to succeed!

I put my iPod on shuffle so I get a bit of everything, but I have been meaning to make myself a playlist.

I listen to Pandora also. I'm going to have to check that one out. I just randomly download music that has a good beat. I have a running playlist and a walking playlist. My running playlist is the one I use most often.

So I listen to Pandora, and there's an awesome station called "electronic cardio workout". I'm into techno a bit, so I find this station really keeps my rhythm up. What songs/types of music work for you?
