Speak Up: What Are Your Favorite Workout Songs?

I rarely sweat it out without music cranked up — I even use music to motivate me before a workout. Although I mix it up and listen to different playlists, there are a few songs that really pump me up like "SOS," by Rihanna, "No One," by Alicia Keys, and "4 Minutes," by Madonna. These songs often make it into my workout playlists.


How about you? What are your top favorite workout songs?

Lots of stuff by The Sounds, Rihanna, Lady Gaga & Pit Bull but more recently stuff by Metric & CSS & Mindless Self Indulgence keep me going. Every now and then I'll throw in some classic rock or metal.
