I love that there are a lot of suggestions here. I've seen several that are also on my playlist and some I may check out I haven't heard before. I like fighter songs because they motivate me. Another of my favorites right now is Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger". Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive has been a favorite song of mine for many years going back to my divorce in 1989 and through other things in between so it's great for my running also. I also like a lot of Nickelback songs.

"I Will Survive" has always been on my playlists since the day I started running - it's the one consistent song. My fave version is the one by Cake, but I have recently been adding Gloria Gaynor, too. Nothing like hearing that song when I'm struggling!

A few others that I like right now:
I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas
Just Dance - Lady GaGa
Zero - Yeah Yeah Yeahs

"Set on You" by George Harrison
"Gives You Hell" by the All American Rejects
"Superstition" by Stevie Wonder
"Beautiful Day" by U2
"Do You Love Me" by the Contours

Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.
-James Dean

If you have to tell someone how bad you want it, then you haven't shown them how hard you already work for it.
-John Mayer

Whether you get what you want isn't what defines you. It's how you go about your business.

I like Pump It by the Black Eyed Peas. Kinda gets you going when it comes on. I also like Let's get Loud by Jennifer Lopez. Anything fast paced and upbeat always works for me!!

I'm glad to see this post since I'm tired of my playlist! For me it depends on whether it's a long run or a speed run. For a long run I love Marching On by One Republic.
