Oh...there are a few good songs listed there! A couple that can get me up out of the desk chair when they come on the radio are "Come Dancing" by The Kinks and "Red Beans" or "Luella" by Marcia Ball. Just...can't...sit...still when I hear them! "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" (Meatloaf) is another great dancing song -- and one that provides a good workout since it's so blasted long!

Shelley Munro said...

Some great songs to exercise to on your list. I keep thinking of lemurs whenever the Move It song plays. I exercise to any old song.

Gina Ardito said...

Those are some great songs to get your heart pumping! I just bring my MP3 player and hit "random."

Chicki said...

At Curves they have some classic disco and old school funk with the beat speeded up to cardio range. It's really great.

For walking I love really fast gospel (those black choir songs that make you want to shout). It keeps my feet moving even when they don't want to.

I want an iPod...

Adelle said...

I really love #13. It's really far removed from what I normally listen to. Not sure why I like it so Happy T13!

Jennifer McKenzie said...

Pretty eclectic. Looks like my play list. LOL.

Lesley said...

I remember when I used to work out! I loved it too. I need to get off my booty again! Spice Girls music is absolutely great for working out!

Debora said...

Makes me want to exercise - hahaha - who am I kidding? Now I can't get "born to be alive" out of my to find some cake! :)

Kaige said...

I like songs with a strong, steady beat for walking. I have a playlist I drop to my shuffle for walking. Some of the tunes on it:

Bring Me To Life by Evanescence
Steady as She Goes by the Raconteurs
Holla Back Girl by Gwen Stefani
You Can Do It (Put Your Ass Into It) by Ice Cube
You Spin Me Right Round by Dead or Alive
Hips Don't Lie by Shakira
God Is A DJ by P!nk
Black Horse and the Cherry Tree by KT Tunstall

Very eclectic, I know. =)

Happy TT!

Tara S Nichols said...

Arg!No Not #3 ack get it out of my head get it out, damn, too late. Disney's meercats or whatever they are will haunt me. May as well go excersize.

Darla said...

Those will get you moving--at least the ones I recognize, anyway. I tend to exercise to movies rather than music.

Alice Audrey said...

I don't have an MP3 player - just a Nordick Track. I listen to books on tape to keep me on it longer.

Chloe Devlin said...

Eclectic list. But good ones to work out to.

Chicki, I like those tapes at Curves. They really keep you moving at the right speed.


Paige Tyler said...

Love 3 & 4!


My TT is at

Debbie Mumford said...

Ooooo..."I like to move it, move it"...

Bella said...

I love 1, 3 and 4. My kids get a kick out of 3, especially since they started making those crazy animals (Even Santa) baring and shaking their asses to that song...eew.


Prixie said...

makes m want to go out there and hitteh gym!

Gwen Mitchell said...

A nice spunky mix, good to work out to, I think!

Angelle Trieste said...

I listen to HYBRID THEORY by Linkin Park when I work out. :)

Kathleen Oxley said...

Great list! One of my all time fave workout songs is Renegade Master -

(Ignore the weird video, but imagine trying to stand still while listening to it!)
