Your Top 3 Workout Songs

I looked through this board for music, but I must admit I can't stand lists of 15 different songs I have to download to find out I dislike. Nor do I like when someone states "anything by so-and-so" because we must all admit every band has some songs that just plain suck lol.

Everyone that's worked out to a playlist for any length of time has those old favorites they keep going back to. I want to know what you like so I can steal them! lol

"Let It Rock" by Kevin Rudolf

"Bombs Over Bahgdad" by Outkast

"Imma Be" by Black Eyed Peas

I linked the above songs to their music videos in YouTube, too :)

    Yolanda Be Cool - we no speak americano

    Seriously, best song ever for running. BEST!
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-_aZnWnmJM&feature=fvst (warning, the video's filthy - nsfw).

    Chica Boom-Dan Balan feat. Katie DiCicco

    But good workout music!

    (btw, my music taste isn't as bad as it seems, I just love stuff with more a heavy beat for working out.
  • My go-to is definitely Bad Romance by Lady Gaga. I also like the Glee version of Don't Stop Believin' because both those songs really pick me up toward the end of my workout.

    Haha So true. I listen to a lot of techno when I run, but it's obnoxiously too repetitive for me to listen to anywhere else lol

    And that We Speak No Americana song- what is it about songs in another language that is great for a workout? Gasolina is a great pace setter!

  • This is going to sound really awful, but my running music is totally one of my guilty pleasures. jagged little pill by alanis morissette.  I never listen to it unless i am running.

    other than that pretty much anything with a solid beat.  eminem,  random rap, stp, bush, linkin park..

  • I am a big fan of Queen when I am running.

  • Hi there!

    For warmup running with a nice thumpy beat:
    "Honey" by Moby

    To chug up a hill:
    "Pa'lante" by Ozomatli

    To kick it to the end of a tough workout:
    "Aluminum Park" by My Morning Jacket

    Happy working out!


  • I totally agree with the techno stuff. I love Gasolina too! When I'm feeling really unmotivated, or I'm nearing a hill during a run, and I'm exhausted I put on "Hate me now" by Nas. Makes me want to work harder. Also, I like to run to "sex, drugs, & house" it's another techno song that I don't know the artist however you can def find it on youtube.
    And I know what you mean about saying "all of so and so's songs" but it's true about Britney Spears. I can totally listen to all her fast songs and get motivated while working out. Oh and try "Headsprung" by LL Cool J.
    I have tons more so I'll post again, but those are the ones that I can think of immediately. Alot of times I will go to google and try and find DJs' websites and download a mixtape from them, alot of them give them away online for free and the constant changing of the music on a mixtape always helps with my workouts.

    Rick Ross "Push It"

    Outkast "Bombs over Baghdad"


    and the top one is without a doubt The Jacksons "Can You Feel It."

    I was doing a 5k last year in Tampa.  Started off good, but it was really hot and I got tired.  Several participants had passed me by and it looked like I was going to walk to the finish line, until "Can you Feel It" came on.  Not only did it give me a second wind, but I passed like five people, ran up a hill and all the way to the finish line.  It has been a staple ever since.


    Honorable Mentions

    Lenny Kravitz "Are you going to Go My Way"

    Guns and Roses "Welcome to the Jungle"

    Michael Jackson "I'm Bad"

    TI "ASAP

  • I know you wanted specific songs, but I've found two entire cds to be fantastic...
    Save the Last Dance
    and
    Glee: Madonna

    In general, I also find that anything from "back in the day" whenever that might have been is great because the songs are catchy and you know them really well, so it takes your mind off the workout itself.
  •  I like the Muse - Uprising (it was the song from the commercial for the movie with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz)
