@Anonymous#30 I think my gym mate would agree with that. I always hear him singing Beyonce songs while lifting weights, even in the locker rooms :) By the way I've compiled my own list of workout songs over here:

Great suggestions! I always love to get new music ideas for working out. Here is my top 5 list of the best workout songs of this year:

Hmm... there are better songs for workout. I prefer songs like the first 10 ones. A where are all those cool pop Britney and The PCD snogs that are perfect for workout? Most of the songs are a little... not so moveable and cheering.

Rock, Salsa and Brazilian Music. Some arias for swimming. Some of these songs I know because of my daughter. But I am old, I don't live in the US and I don't listen to the radio...

hmmmm... not to my taste. i think the ultimate work out song is Work by Kelly Rowlands (Freemasons Remix). I like to listen to music that has a sort of aggressive element to it - something that will pump me up! 'I Go Hard, I Go Home' by The Presets is great for getting through a difficult sprint.

i only own 12 of the songs on that list! i generally work out to whatever album i'm currently obsessed with or put my 'all my favorite songs' playlist on shuffle. right now i'm digging alanis morissette's "on the tequila" & jason mraz's "i'm yours."

Yeah I agree, that musics too old and has been over played to much. Personally I like techno, rave, house music for working out. Because they have a proper beat plus they tend not to get 'old' as the music you have listed.

I hate that I'm admitting this but most disney channel stars' songs appeal to me when I'm working out. I mean on my own, working or studying, I'd go with Bach, Chopin, Metallica or Cloud Cult. Then when I'm on the treadmill, Sneakernight is the first thing to play. Then Aly and Aj's Like Whoa etc etc.

I have a lot of those on my iPod already. I agree that some of the songs are a tad overplayed, but I usually don't listen to the radio much.
