My favorite workout songs.. Any suggestions?

A list of my favorite songs!

These are the ones that get me so pumped up to jog. When they play, I forget about the treadmill, the gym and the weight.. for minutes :

Breathe - Nickelback
They Don't Care About Us- Michael Jackson
Bang Bang- K'naan ft Adam Levine
The Offspring- You're Gonna Go Far, Kid
Eminem- Rabbit Run & Till I Collapse
Sum 41- Over My Head
Three Days Grace- Riot
Outcast- Hey Ya
3 Doors Down- It's Not My Time

My favorite motivational Songs and the specific phrases that I love in them. They keep me moving when I sometimes have the urge to stop:

B.O.B- Magic .."I've got the magic in me" Yes I DO!

Bon Jovi- It's My Life .. "It's now or never, I ain't gonna live forever"

Coldplay- Vida la Vida.. "People couldn't believe what I've come" -
That's what's going to happen once I shed these pounds!

Fort Minor- Remember the Name.. "This is 10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrate and power of will, 5% pleasure, 50% pain and a 100% reasons to remember the name"
Although I think our journey's pleasure is way more than 5% ;)

Yolanda Adams- I believe.. "You can reach your goals, just talk to your soul and say I believe I can! I believe I will! I believe I know all of my dreams are real!"

Shakira ft. Lil Wayne- Give it up to me.. "You can have it all.. Anything you want you can make it yours!"

West Side Story- I feel pretty.. "And I pity, any girl who isn't me tonight!"

Destiny's Child- Survivor .. "I'm not gonna give up, I'm not gonna stop, I'm gonna work harder. I'm a survivor, I'm gonna make it!"

Nicki Minaj ft. Rihanna - Fly.. "Cry my eyes out for days upon days, such a heavy burden placed upon me. But when you go hard your nay’s become yay’s"

Airplanes [Eminem part]: "He hoped and he wished it but it didn't fall in his lap so he ain't even here, he pretends that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars" This reminds me that if it's going to happen, I've gotta work hard to make it happen.

Christopher Mae- Ne m'abandonne pas .. "Alors ne m'abandonne pas, non, ne me laisse pas, ma vie se balance et se joue avec toi!" (So don't abandon me, no, don't leave me, my life is balanced and joyful with you! *Roughly*)

Jimmy Cliff- You can get it if you really want.. "You can get it if you really want but you must try try and try try and try, you'll succeed at last.. I know it"
He knows it.. I know it :D

Kevin Rudolph- I made it.. "I used to dream about, the life I'm living now. I know there's no doubt: I made it I made it!"
I always close my eyes and imagine a naturally slimmer healthier version of me. It's refreshing!

Soprano- Hiro.. "Je serais parti voir Martin Luther King Après son discours, lui montrer la photo de Barack Obama. J’aurais été au temple d’Harlem Pousser Malcolm de la scène avant qu’une balle- I would have left to see Martin Luther King after his speech, show him the photo of Barack Obama. I would have been in the temple of Harlem, push Malcolm of the scene before a bullet reaches him " (Malcom X and M.L.K just inspire me)

Natasha Bedingfield- Strip me .. "I'm only one voice in a million but you ain't taking that from me!"

Jessie J- Who you are.. "Dreaming is believing, its okay not be okay. Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart, but this don't mean you're losing everybody's bruising there's nothing wrong with who you are"
This says it all when I'm facing a setback!

Yann Tiersen- Comptine D'un Autre Ete/L'apres-Midi (Music.. beyond inspirational)

That's basically it! What are your favorites? Are any of those your favorite too?

    I usually try to find my fav songs but remixed where the RPM is high enough and well paced for my workout.

    Keep it up emoticon
