    These are on my workout mix:

    Three - Britney Spears
    Piece of Me (Remix) - Britney Spears
    Fever - Adam Lambert
    Morning After Dark - Timbaland
    Let It Rock - Kevin....something. Can't remember his last name.

    Um. That's what comes up off the top of my head...

    Kevin Rudolph, that one's on my workout ipod shuffle too. I also have a bunch of songs from Glee like Don't Stop Believing and Proud Mary, dance remixes of Britney Spears and Kelly Clarkson and some stuff by Pink. So What especially is a good one.

    "I Gotta Feeling" by Black Eyed Peas has a good beat to it.
    "Live Like We're Dying" by Kris Allen
    "My Life Would Suck Without You" by Kelly Clarkson
    Pink's uptempo songs, "Trouble," "You and Your Hand," etc.
    Definitely echo the Lady Gaga mention above.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNzrwh2Z2hQ - mashup of the top 25 songs from 2009, there's a link to the mp3 in the video info.
    If you're a country fan, Dierks Bentley "Free and Easy," "What Was I Thinking," "Sideways" or Carrie Underwood "Cowboy Casanova," "Before He Cheats," etc.

    Practically anything by them. Favorites of mine include "Let's Get It Started," "Pump It," and "Boom Boom Pow."

    I second this.

    I also really like Janet Jackson's Discipline album.

    This may sound wierd, but my favorite treadmill song at the moment is Glee's version of Don't Stop Beleivin.'

    But then again, I also like working out to the Olympic theme by John Williams. :lol:

    Not the most conventional choice, but the beat in The Rolling Stones 'Get Off Of My Cloud' always gets me moving. I find that even when I'm just walking and have my iPod on my steps automatically speed up to match the beat.

    80's music in general makes great workout music, I have a whole IPOD playlist of it. (And if you can stand some '70s disco, there's a few songs, like Turn the Beat Around, that will move you pretty fast as well.)

    Old Bon Jovi, Madonna, Springsteen, Michael Jackson, a few one-hit wonders like "Jenny" and "Flashdance." Cheesy but inspirational! :biggrinbo

    I third Black Eyes Peas' recent tunes mentioned above but I lurves me some Kings of Leon like "Sex on fire", "Knocked up".
    Also some dance tunes such as "Indianotech" by Mossano, "Long love distance" by Gossip, "Babylonia" by Baleric remix, "Selfish love" by Pedro Cazanova or good ol' Muse tunes such as "Supermassive black hole", "Time is running out", "Uprising"

    My workout music tends to be a total mix of current hip hop/dance (Black Eye Peas and Lady GaGa), 70s disco (I Will Survive, I Love the Nightlife), 60s soul (Get Ready, Dancing in the Streets), 80s-90s dance (Madonna, Let the Music Play, C&C Music Factory).

    My guilty secret though is that my favorite workout song is It's Raining Men. I set it on my iPod for the 20-25 minutes mark, because that is when I find my energy flagging and I debate getting off the cardio machine. But that song is an instant pick-me up and is great to help me carry through.

    I tend to listen to a lot of Industrial/EBM music, along with a lot of trance/tantric music. The Industrial stuff is very hard hitting, which gets the blood pumping. Groups included in that mix are stuff like:

    VnV Nation (Art of Conflict, Beloved, Hellraiser (VNV Nation Mix)
    Assemblage 23
    Project Pitchfork (especially "Feel" (noiseuf X remix), Conure, and Steelrose (Apoptygma Berzerk remix)
    Nitzer Ebb
    Combichrist
    Imatem
    Front Line Assembly

    I also love working out to the likes of Juno Reactor, who did a bunch of the music in the Matrix movies - expecially Mona Lisa Overdrive (not to be confused with the book of the same name), and Navras.

    You can find any of these on youtube. I usually listen to the entire song before deciding to get them off of iTunes or Amazon.

    Anyone remember this from The Cutting Edge? It's actually lifted and remixed disco queen vocals by Loleatta Holloway (sung later by Heather Small), and Katrin Quinol never sung a word.

    Black Box - Ride on Time

    Quoting myself to link to the songs in my OP:

    Forever - Bruderschaft/VNV Nation
    Navras - Juno Reactor (some might remember this from the Paso Doble done a couple of seasons ago on SYTYCD :D )
    Feel! - Project Pitchfor (Noisuf-X remix)
    Get Your Body Beat - Combichrist
    The Art of Conflict - VNV Nation (I particularly love this one as the lyrics are quotes for Shin Zhu's The Art of War)
    Steelrose - Project Pitchfork (Apoptygma Berzerk remix)

    Enjoy!

    I agree with the poster who suggested Muse. I particularly love "Butterflies and Hurricanes" and "Hysteria".

    I also enjoy working out to the more dramatic pieces from Vivaldi's "Four Seasons".
