playlist emergency.

i made caramel crack this past weekend & unfortunately, it's as yummy and addicting as ever - so, i've been nibbling at it ever since. (the rolled oats make it a practical choice for breakfast!) & although it is definitely delicious, i am no longer "with child", so i can no longer blame any weight gain on the fact that i'm eating for two. seeing as i'm not planning on giving up desserts any time soon, i really need to stick to my running regime. but, it's hard to coax my lazy bum out the door when i've got no "tunes" to get me motivated, energized & ready to "feel the burn."

i am definitely in need of a new playlist that will get my toes tapping & my heart racing... any suggestions? i'd love to hear from you - what's your favorite song or songs that get you going? i've got an itunes gift card that i'm just itching to spend. any ideas? play my little game & there just might be an itunes gift card in store for you too, at least one of you that is!

I got oodles of other ideas for you, but I'm in the middle of making breakfast!

Don't laugh. But my two favorite songs lately are Wil Smith "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" and Michael Jackson "Bad." Some other good ones are Natasha Bedingfield "Pocketful of Sunshine" and Trik Turner "Friends and Family" (from the Mr. Deeds soundtrack.) I also love Michael Buble "Feeling Good" for the last song of my run.

Gunpowder and Lead (Miranda Lambert)
Lay All Your Love On Me (Mama Mia soundtrack)
I Wanna Rock (Twisted Sister)
Disturbia (Rihana)
Toxic (Britney Spears)
Sexy Back (Justin Timberlake)
Any Way You Want It (Journey)
Last Name (Carrie Underwood)

Hope you find some tunes to keep you motivated--I know what you mean, I cannot run without good music!

Chanda said...

Every tuesday I do "tunesday" where i list something from my ipod. Posts on these dates have workout playlists:

1/06/09 (great motivational photo as well)
(*disclaimer-dirty music doesn't offend me)

Angry Julie Monday said...

I listen to a lot of White Zombie and Metallica while running, Angry Music, go figure.

Also Social Distortion, an OC fave, is always on standby.

Stacie said...

I know what you mean, nothing is worse than when my mp3 battery dies during my workout! Biggest Loser has some great remixes available on iTunes. They have country, rap, pop, whatever suits you, just do an iTunes search for biggest loser!

Jamie said...

I've already added a few new songs to my workout playlist thanks to previous commenters!

Here are a couple of songs that've been on heavy rotation in my world lately:
Hometown Glory - Adele
Steal My Sunshine - Len
We Used to Be Friends - Daddy Warhol's

Lene said...

So What - P!nk

My name is Ali... said...

Lady Gaga

Alicia said...

I have found that soundtracks get me going. I've been listening to Hairspray lately and it's a lot of fun!

Jes said...

So what - Pink
Boom Boom Pow - Black Eyed Peas
The Bare Necessities ;)
I tend to like hip hop or rap when exercising. A lil Flo Rider always gets me pumped.

Holly said...

I'd much rather eat that caramel delight than run...though I know I better keep myself moving.

Here are some of my latest faves:

Single Ladies by Beyonce
Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack
Untouched by The Veronicas
Agree with others about Lady Gaga, Rianna (Disturbia and Please Don't Stop the Music)and P!nk.

Have you heard of MIKA? Big Girl You are Beautiful, Grace Kelly and Lollipop are peppy.

Mary Ella said...

Wow you have gotten a lot of good suggestions so far. Heres a couple more. My Husband is a musician (his band is The Subcons) and he puts out a mix compiled of new music every season from indie pop bands. This is his happy spring mix.
and of course check out the subcons if you can (there on i tunes)
Happy Running!

Ron de Replay by Rhianna


Black Horse and Cherry Tree by KT Tunstall

make me run the fastest :)

Rose said...

I currently love waking up in vegas (by katie perry?) and right round by flo rida. both of these songs make me want to turn the music up and drive fast!

mama jo said...

forget the playlist..need the recipe for the crack.

konner said...

This might not be your style, but I love this girl rap group called Fannypack for when I run. The best song is I think "Do It To It" which is not as dirty as it sounds.

You also need "We Didn't Start the Fire" by Billy Joel.

konner said...


Rise Up by Yves la Rock (watch the video, you'll be all inspired)
Day and Night Kid Cudi vs Crookers
Whine Up by Kat Deluna
One and Only by Timbaland feat. Fall Out Boy
Girlfriend by Avril Lavigne remixed with Lil Mama
Don't Trust Me by 3Oh!3

I love Pink and Alanis Morissette to get me going when I run (or used to run!)

Mrs. Heather said...

guilty pleasures...but only when I am working out - Lady Gaga and Britney.

Spencer Family said...

Everytime We Touch by Cascada is REALLY good. It always makes me run faster. Thanks for this post by the way. I'm always looking for new song suggestions and there are some great ones on here.

ReminisceHeirlooms said...

Lady Gaga and Eye of the Tiger. lol.

Chris said...

I love Pussy Cat Dolls- esp their last album Doll Domination.

Lloyd Family said...
