Songs - need help

Did 10 miles on the exercise bike today and worked out on the Bowflex.  Here's my view!

Today what I really, really need is some new suggestions for songs for my ipod.  I have grown tired of the songs that I have on there now.  I even know what the next song is before it starts.  That tells you how long they have been on there.  Anyway, if you have time, please give me a couple of your favorite songs to run to so I can try them out.  Thanks, in advance, for your input.

Have a great day and......Keep Running!


  1. These are some songs that get me pumped when running... maybe they will do the same for your biking!
    -Lady Gaga - Teeth
    -Goo Goo Dolls - Big Machine
    -Against me - Thrash Unreal
    -Black Eyed Peas latest album: "The E.N.D." - I downloaded this album for $5 on has really good workout music!

    Weird stuff:
    -Battle Star Galactica/Bear McCreary- All Along the Watchtower cover - this song gets me through the last part of any workout!!
    -Leslie Hall - Tight Pants (Body Rolls) & How We Go Out - both are really weird/awful songs but they get me super pumped when I'm running!!

  2. Firework --Katy Perry
    Not Afraid --Eminem
    Blacked Eye Peas
    Lady Gaga

  3. well my all time fav is "crazy b!tch" by buckcherry...and the dropkick murphys

  4. I'm not really sure what kind of music you like but here are some of my favorites on my play list:
    Eminem - Lose Yourself, Rabbit Run
    Fall Out Boy - Arms Race
    Jay Z - Run This Town, New York
    Pink - So What
    Tim McGraw - Live Like You Were Dying
    Black Eyed Peas - Boom Boom Pow
    N.E.R.D. - Fly or Die
    That's all I can think of off the top of my head!

  5. i'm really into christina's new song "bionic" makes me feel like i can handle anything!

  6. I dont know if this is your style, but anything by Lady Gaga gets me going.

  7. Dude, I demand that you go out right this instant and buy a much bigger T.V. Tell The Mrs I insisted. I'm gonna have to take away your Man Card with that little thing.

    As for music, I say download the entire album called Metallica (aka The Black Album).

  8. There is a new song I'm using for Zumba called "Hella Decale" by Doukali. There's no way you cannot move when you hear that song, whether it's dancing or running!

  9. I am a total slacker and run to Podrunner or Motion Traxx. I know, I know - lazy! And cheap! Love your basement!

  10. I'm one of those crazy people that can't run with music. I usually run without anything, but if I take my iPod, I'll load an audio book onto it.

    Strange, I know. :-)

  11. Anything by Journey, AC/DC, along with "Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns n' Roses works for me.

  12. Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I have some of them but many are new it me.

    marathonmaiden - LOL!!!! That is one of my favorites - Crazy Bitch! It does get you going but I'm not sure everyone would appreciate it.

    Chris - you got my e-mail. I'm covered!

    Terri & Nej - Eck! I'll pass on those. LOL.

  13. Flogging Molly. Don't question. Just download. Drunken Lullabies and What's Left of the Flag are my favorites.

  14. Some of my favs - ecclectic grouping...

    I've Gotta feeling (Black eyed peas)
    Paradise City (Guns n Roses)
    I get knocked down (Chumbawumba)
    I'm Not Afraid - Eminem
    Rat In a Cage - Smashing Pumpkins
    Seven Nation Army - White Stripes
    All I do is Win -DJ Kahled
    Born To Run - Bruce Springsteen (come on, I'm a Jersey Girl!)

    And I've got some Madonna, Bon Jovi, Lady Gaga, in the mix too.

  15. Your profile says that you're into country and rap. I can't help you in the country department, but here are a few rap/hip hop songs that might be fun:
    Sabotage - Beastie Boys
    Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z/Alicia K
    Blame It - Jamie Foxx
    The Way I Are - Timberland
    Lose Yourself - Eminem
    Like Water for Chocolate album - Common
    One Thing - Amerie
    Also check out Beck. Not really rap, but his stuff is very runnable. I seem to have many more tunes of the indie and 80s/90s alternative variety. ;)

  16. Here's a link to my playlist.

    I'm going to be updating it soon so I'll be sure to post it again.

  17. It doesn't matter how many songs I have, I get tired of them so quickly! I have 483,493,483 songs and keep hearing the same 4! LOL

  18. Sing by My Chemical Romance!!

    and this Girl Talk album (free download!!)

  19. put the ipod on random, heh, then you won't know what's coming next. I've been chillin' to John Mayer lately and the new Bon Jovi Greatest Hits.
