Cardio Workout Playlist

I need your help.  I have not worked out consistently since...oh.....high school sports.  Yeah, that long ago.  Working out and I usually don't get along very well. I tend to have bad things happen like knee injuries, intentionally NOT going because I have better things to do (like anything other than physical exercise), montlhy womanly things falling out onto the treadmill...no joke.  That happened during a basketball game in high school too...no one could figure out what was laying on the floor, or who it belonged to (THANK GOODNESS).  Poor janitor..... 

Anywho,  I've decided to jump in.  I started last night, and it was great to have Tanner there to motivate me.  We may be going to different gyms and I know that once we start that, I'm going to need some music to keep going.  I've started a playlist but would love ANY input from you guys.  Normally, I love music like I have on my blog playlist, but my workout music should be VERY upbeat.  I'll post what I have so far so you can get an idea.  I can't WAIT to hear your suggestions!

1.  Like a G6 - Far East Movement

2.  Sexy Chick - David Guetta Ft. Akon

3.  She Wolf - Shakira (I know, I know...but it's catchy!)

4.  Boom Boom Pow - Black Eyed Peas

(Note:  Do not play this twice at a cowboy bar in Montana.  You may be forceably removed.)

5.  Club Can't Handle Me - Flo Rida ft. David Guetta

6.  Summer Love - Justin Timberlake

7.  California Girls - Katy Perry

8.  Tik Tok - Ke$ha

(Here's to hoping this workout will help me wake up in the morning feel like P. Diddy...)

9.  Just Dance - Lady Gaga

10.  In My Arms (Bimbo Jones Radio Edit) - Plumb

11.  Call on Me - Eric Prydz

(It doesn't even matter that its the same three words the entire song.  The beat makes it amazing.)

12.  Superstition - Stevie Wonder

Writing's on the wall...

13.  Are you Gonna be my Girl - JET

14.  Magic Carpet Ride - Steppenwolf

15.  Swing - Savage

(DISCLAIMER: naughty words alert in this one... haha)

Ok, thats all I have right now.  So start digging through those cds... looking through your Ipod list... and give me some suggestions!  I'm counting on you for motivation... ;)

well I definitely burned quite a few calories reading the first part of your post,laughing! lol, I can't believe that happened during a basketball game, you poor thing! I can say that because I am the QUEEN of embarrassing myself by silly things like that! Great music choices too, maybe you getting motivated will motivate me too!

"donk" from soulja boy makes me want to dance and giggle at the same time. either way, it gets me running :) I also recommend:

"american boy" estelle
"single ladies" beyonce
"switch" will smith

and i wish i could find it on my ipod right now, but there's some remix rap version of the hokey pokey (i have no idea how it got on my playlist) that i'm embarrassed to say that i kinda love. it has a great beat for running :)

Good girl - I wish I had your will power. I think Stereo Love by Edward Maya has a really nice beat and I really like the song - it's kind of like a European summer holiday/vacation song.

What a hideous period story! We've all got them - believe me when you hit your forties they get worse!

I wish I had the motivation to exercise but I have none. I just really want to wake up slim without all the effort. Every year I take up swimming (again) but I only ever last about 3 weeks and give up again. I'm also really fat and have huge boobs since I had my kids so I tend to take my towel to the edge of the pool then throw it and jump. I'm a really slow swimmer too but at least with my horrid figure I probably look like a new mother taking her bald twins for a dip!

"I Made It" by Kevin Rudolf


"Pump It" by Black Eyed Peas

I wish I had my iPod w/me! I have an entire "Gym Music" playlist. :)

ps: totally stealing some of your suggestions for my playlist!

The Darkness "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" (here's the music video, but because they're British, it's weird. Lol http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRYNYb30nxU )

"I'm Bringing Sexy Back" Justin Timberlake
"London Bridge" Fergie
"Another One Bites the Dust" Queen
"Gimme Gimme Gimme A Man After Midnight" Abba

Gail said...

Dating myself, but totally don't care:
#1 Talking Heads
#2 Talking Heads
#3 Talking Heads
You might also consider classic Rolling Stones and definitely The Who....they all rock and have great songs to work out to.

Heather said...

I must agree with number 1 and 15, those two are definitely on my Gym mix on the iPod. I would add Missy Elliot "Lose Control", Rhianna "S.O.S.", Dem Franchise Boyz "I Think They Like Me", MIMS "This Is Why I'm Hot", and M.I.A. "Paper Planes."
And thanks for the hilarious cartoon. I feel the same way, that I even tossed my scale. Hated that thing. :)

Shannon said...

Great post! I found some more songs to add to my list. I have Black Eyed Peas "Imma Be", Lady Gaga "Poker Face", Flo Rida "Right Round", Rhianna "SOS", Gwen Stafani "The Sweet Escape" and Third Eye Blind "Semi-Charmed Life"

"The Girl You Lost to Cocaine (Mark Picchoiotti Remix)--Sia (probably my favorite of all the tracks on the list)

"Jungle Drum"--Emiliana Torrini
"New Shoes"--Paolo Nutini
"Bang Bang"--K'naan

And just about anything from the "Run Lola Run" soundtrack

Rock on!

Wendy said...

I've gotta have music while a run too!

Say Hey ~ Michael Franti
