    I am so bored with my current workout list! What do my fellow dis'ers work out to? I love all genres and music styles, so I'm open to all suggestion.

    Thank you all!

    Right now my gym playlist is heavily based around Sleigh Bells and Kanye West. :laughing: I prefer songs that are kind of hard, loud, and aggressive...keeps me motivated! So mostly rock and hip-hop. NIN, Tupac, Cypress Hill, Queens of the Stone Age, etc. For cool-downs and strength training I'll occasionally switch to some dance music. Daft Punk's current album is my warm-up set right now. :thumbsup2

    I do Zumba so I hear a LOT of Pitbull and I think he's great for any work-out! Also, David Guetta (I think is his name?).

    That song is my jam... :rotfl2: (Pitch Perfect joke)


    "Right Round" by Flo Rida is a good one!

    The one that seems to make me move is that "I Love It" song (which was previously mentioned above)...it's probably been out for a long time and took me to just now to discover it.

    Don't laugh? "9 to 5" by Dolly Parton. It motivates me okay? Don't judge.

    I don't know how long it's been out, but it gets me to move too. It cracks me up and has a great beat.

    It reminds me somewhat of that song, "I get knocked down", (I guess is the title). The rebellious shout outs, and strong beat hooks me every time. :)

    I take my iPod on walks and have this really weird sequence that I tend to follow. I start out with Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. Then I switch over to Queen's Somebody to Love and Don't Stop me now. From there, I tend to switch to Murder Murder from the Jekyll and Hyde Broadway soundtrack and One Day More from Les Miserables. From there, I just play whatever random stuff appeals to me on that particular day. Told you it was weird!;)

    I don't work out, BUT if I did, I would listen to Macklemore's Can't Hold Us on a continuous loop. I could seriously listen to and sing that song all day long. :rotfl: The full version, of course, not the shorter versions they play on the radio.

    I've been playing the Zombies, Run! app A LOT lately (it's a fitness app with a serial-style zombie apocalypse story, and 3-4 times during a 30 minute run you suddenly hear "Warning, zombies detected" and you have to book it like the undead are on your tail) and every time Can't Hold Us comes up during a zombie chase, it is the best run I have ever had in my entire life. :rotfl:

    With that in mind, my running playlist has taken on a bit of a dark post-apocalyptic feel (because it's hard to take terrified "They're right behind you! Don't look back - just RUN!" warnings seriously when you're running to Ke$ha and Katy Perry...). Lots of David Guetta, Florence + The Machine, Ok Go, Arctic Monkeys. And the entire Danger Days CD by My Chemical Romanace - OMG, that whole album is just made for running from zombies. :lmao:
