What's Your Favorite Workout Song?

By June 22, 2007

Follow me on:

One thing I've noticed about working out on cardio machines is that they can be very, very boring. Music is one thing that gets me through and I like to put my favorite workout songs about halfway through my routine to give me that extra kick I need to keep going.

I really love this topic because I've gotten some great ideas for songs to add to my workout playlists. I tend to get obsessed with songs, listen to them until I can't stand them anymore, then feel bereft when I don't have another great song to take it's place. So help me out by telling me all about your favorite exercise songs...rock, pop, alternative, country or even your favorite audiobooks to listen to. Leave them here in comments so we can update our playlists with the best songs to workout to.

(1) exercise says:

My favorite album right now is Gwen Stefani’s Love.Angel.Music.Baby. It’s great music for running and walking.

April 24, 2006 at 1:22 pm
(2) Jeanne says:

any song by Corrosion of Conformity

April 24, 2006 at 1:27 pm
(3) me says:

I like 80′s music when i workout.
Cyndi Lauper, Madonna, Taylor Dayne.
and i especially love listening to the Night at the Roxbury Soundtrack, that always gets me pumped.

April 24, 2006 at 4:09 pm
(4) Liz says:

I have the same problem. I listen to a playlist until I hear it in my sleep and then I am less inclined to work out, since I’m bored with the music. Here are some good songs that I’ve worn out…
I Feel Lucky – Mary Chapin Carpenter
The Bug – Mary Chapin Carpenter
Passionate Kisses – Mary Chapin Carpenter
I Take My Chances – Mary Chapin Carpenter
Long Time Gone – Dixie Chicks
Landslide – Dixie Chicks
The WALK the LINE soundtrack

April 24, 2006 at 6:20 pm
(5) Jacqueline says:

When i workout I love listening to Freestyle.
TKA, CoverGirls, George Lamond,Judy Torres, Corinna, Sasha and many more.

April 24, 2006 at 6:43 pm
(6) Lauren says:

I love listening to Journey when i workout…especially for running. “Don’t Stop Believing” is especially good as well as all of the stupid songs on the Rocky soundtrack. “Eye of the Tiger”, “Survivor” etc.

April 24, 2006 at 7:02 pm
(7) chelsea says:

I listen to (and “sing” along with when I can) military cadences. The steady beat and fear of the drill instructor keep me moving. My first day using them instead of music I made it through a 3 mile run without wanting to stop, when I normally wimp out in the first mile or so.

April 24, 2006 at 7:17 pm
(8) Paige says:

Thanks everyone for posting your ideas…keep ‘em coming. These are great!

April 24, 2006 at 8:10 pm
(9) Erin says:

Like many of you I am guilty of the play it to my ears bleed use of my playlists. There are, however, some that seem to either make it on to every play list, or make frequent appearances. Some may sound a little obscure, but give ‘em a try, they may suprise you. They are:

1. Galaxy Bounce – Chemical Brothers
2. Get a Move On – Mr. Scruff (featured in Lincoln commercials – that jazzy little riff? GREAT treadmill song)
3. One girl revolution – Superchic
4. Rendez’Vu – Basement Jaxx (great beat)
5. Do Your Thing – Basement Jaxx (will definately get you going)
6. Steam – Peter Gabriel
7. Groove is in the heart – Deelight
8. Shambala – Three dog night
9. A change would do you good – Sheryl Crow
10. New Sensation – INXS
11. Let ‘er Rip – the Dixie Chicks
12. Fools Paradise – Oingo Boingo
13. One Girl Revolution – Superchic
14. Ready to Go – Republica
15. Wild Wild West – Will Smith
16. Switch – Will Smith
17. Sunrise – Duran Duran (Jason Nevins remix is esp. good)
18. All Star – Smashmouth
19. The Sun – Maroon 5
20. You Can CanCan – Moulon Rouge Soundtrack

Hope that gives some ideas for variety. Try some of the more obscure ones, you may be glad ya did! Happy Work out!

April 24, 2006 at 9:34 pm
(10) Laura says:

Whip It by Devo

April 24, 2006 at 10:20 pm
(11) Danas says:

The #1 workout song is

Eye of the Tiger. OMG how can anyone listen to those songs. This truley inspires u to run, lift, or even just doing pushups in the morning. C’mon we all know Rocky looks tough y cant u??

April 25, 2006 at 12:42 am
(12) James says:

The best workout song(s)… without a doubt anything off of “…And Justice For All” by Metallica.

April 25, 2006 at 11:16 am
(13) Claudia says:

I’m a soundtrack person – the Legally Blonde soundtrack has some great tunes – One Girl Revolution (Superchic), Watch Me Shine (Joanna Pacitti), Sex Machine (Mya). And as always the soundtracks to The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, and Too Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar!

April 25, 2006 at 12:11 pm
(14) erin says:

If its sound tracks you like, check out the Mummy OST, or any Danny Elfman, esp. Big Fish. They make great background music when you want to loose yourself.

April 25, 2006 at 12:21 pm
(15) Erin says:

Dragula by Rob Zombie is my favorite. Anything by Shotgun Messiah is good and Megadeth will get you going pretty good too.

April 25, 2006 at 2:30 pm
(16) Ligaya says:

I love “Get Right” by J.Lo. The beat is great for a good cardio workout.

April 25, 2006 at 7:08 pm
(17) Liayn says:

Pump it by the Black Eyed Peas.

I first heard it in my hip-hop class and it’s been a permanent fixture in my mp3 player for working out ever since.

April 25, 2006 at 10:16 pm
(18) Toya says:

Pump up the Jam cd , Technotronic
Love Shack cd, B52′s

April 25, 2006 at 10:21 pm
(19) kristi says:

Whenever I need a little kick, I turn on AC/Dc as loud as my ipod will go. It works everytime.

April 26, 2006 at 2:51 am
(20) ken says:

ac/dc will definetly put a kick in your work out.Most of the older van halen until that sammy guy put his 2 cents in.But my new work out band is disturbed they really jam.

April 26, 2006 at 2:12 pm
(21) Kathy says:

I thing a good dose of disturbed or godsmack gets the blood pumping and makes the time fly by.

April 26, 2006 at 2:24 pm
(22) Gina says:

I love listening to pop in Spanish when I work out — it’s not my native language, so trying to translate the words keeps my mind occupied. Juanes in particular is great for working out.

April 26, 2006 at 2:45 pm
(23) jane says:

Prince’s “You sexy motherf***er” is a most excellent tune that gets me going!
Also, they are obscure, but a little band out of New Orleans called the Morning 40 Federation is great for rollerblading!

April 26, 2006 at 4:03 pm
(24) katherine says:

Give “Pain lies on the riverside” by Live a try.

April 26, 2006 at 4:57 pm
(25) Tamarin says:

D.A.R.E. by the Gorillaz!

April 26, 2006 at 5:35 pm
(26) Deb says:

Does anyone know the name of the song they use in the really upbeat cell phone commercial? The girl is ‘dancing’ to her music, takes a call, then goes right back to her music. I would love to add that song to my collection of workout songs.

April 27, 2006 at 6:44 pm
(27) Deanne says:

My fave workout songs are “No Surprise” by Theory of a Deadman, “Criminal” by Fiona Apple, “Lady Marmalade” from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack, “Love Rollercoaster” and “Higher Ground” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and “Take Me Out” by Franz Ferdinand.

April 29, 2006 at 12:27 am

December 7, 2006 at 11:53 am
(33) J.C. says:

For me I like AC/DC, Slipknot, Taking Back Sunday, some Atreyu (“Ex’s and Oh’s”, “We Stand Up”, “My Fork In the Road”), blink-182, Sublime, Three Days Grace, etc.

December 7, 2006 at 1:34 pm
(34) Tia says:

I work at a gym!!! All I have to say is that it depends on the mood!! You can use a little classic rock like:
It Hurts So Good!John Cougar Mellencamp
Magic Carpet Ride!Steppenwolf
Cocaine!Eric Clapton
Black Betty!Ram Jam
Welcome To The Jungle! GnR
or you can go for some harder rock like:
Killing In The Name Of! Rage Against The Machine
I Stand Alone- Godsmack
Twisted Transistor! Korn
Coming Undone!Korn
Only!Nine Inch Nails
or if you like just feel like a little hip hop/rap/r&b like:
Pump It! BEP
Baby Got Back! Sir Mix Alot
What You Waiting For! Gwen Stefani
Wheres Your Head At!
Smack My Bitch Up! Prodigy
Headsprung! LL Cool J
Missy Elliott!
or you are in the mood for a little country like:
Hey Good Looking! Jimmy Buffet
Friends In Low Places! Garth Brooks
Two Pina Coladas! Jimmy Buffet
Sold! John Michael Montgomery
There is alot of good country out there!

So there are some ideas! Just stay motivated and change the music to suit your mood and that will help alot!

December 10, 2006 at 2:24 pm
(35) elizabeth says:

January 16, 2007 at 1:24 am
(45) Rachel says:

When working out, and especially cardio, I love listening to either rock, or hip-hop. It definitely motivates me more than anything else.

1.Pain-Three Days Grace
2.Blow Me Away- Breaking Benjamin

Some awesome wkout tracks guaranteed to enhnace your treadmill session:
Nelly Furtado – Maneater
Red Hot Chillis – Dani California
All American Rejects – Dirty Little Secret
BEP – Pump It
Brand New – Sic Transit Gloria.. Glory Fades
CASCADA – Miracle
Enter Shakiri – Sorry you’re not a winner
Fall Out Boy – Champagne for my real friends, real pain for my sham friends (i know its a long title, but it really is a good workout song)
Fergie – London Bridge

To be honest there are so many, i would say any Fall Out Boy is good, also Panic at the Disco are excellent. If your into metal kind of stuff, you cant go wrong with any System of A Down, particularly ‘This Cocaine Makes feel like i’m on this song’, ‘Bounce’, ‘Jet Pilot’, ‘Forest’, ‘Psycho’. I would probably say System of a Down is the best wkout music i know, guaranteed to enhance performance!!! HOPE THIS HELPS!!

You may want to track down a song called “Jellyhead” by Crush (I think) and a song called “Ooh Aah, Just a Little Bit” by Gina G.
These are sort of dance-y but have solid beats and a fast tempo.
Highly recommended.

I desperately need motivating music to workout to on my Ipod and update my playlist religiously. Favorites include: Gimme Shelter:The Rolling Stones, Crazy Love:Paula Abdul, Rhythm Nation:Janet Jackson, and Disco Inferno:Madonna. My playlist really keeps me moving on the elliptical and gets me past the first tedious 10 minutes so I can settle in and do a solid 30-40 minutes on it.

When I work out I don’t just want upbeat music I was music that pushes me and makes me want to workout, music that inspires….and so here’s my workout list. Hope you find something useful.

Athena Cage – All or Nothing (Save the last dance final number)

Black Eyed Peas – Pump it (Well PUMP IT!)

Gloria Estefan – Conga (One of the few exceptions to the rule, not really inspiring but a great song to move with)

Joe Esposito – You’re the best (Tournament song from the Karate Kid)

Phil Collins – Son of Man (From Tarzan, it inspires me as a guy not sure if girls will get the same message)

Pink – You Make Me Sick (Again another song that inspires for guys because I picture her singing this to me and it makes me work harder)

Survivor – Eye of the tiger (You knew it was coming)

The Who – The Seeker (The jogging song from “American Beauty” it just makes me wanna jog)

Survivor – Moment of truth (Another one from Survivor and Karate Kid)

Eminem – Loose Yourself (“The moment, you own it you better never let it go, you only get one shot…” Good lyics)

Kanye West – Stronger (Working out to this makes me feel like the bionic man)

Men at Work – Aint nothing gonna break my stride (This is a take it or leave it song, it’s inspiring but it’s not a playlist must)

Nonpoint – In the Air Tonight (That drum beat gets me every time)

Enjoy your workout!!!

(225) tt says:

I can remember visiting a friend back around 1992 or ’93, and he was lifting weights while lifting to “I’m gonna knock you out” by LL Cool J. I always thought that was a good one. Also, “Through the Fire and Flames” by Dragonforce for the mid-workout heavy-hitting session. As a child of the 80′s, I’m for any steady-paced song (i.e. “My Girl” by Chilliwack) for a warm-up or cool down.

Other than that, here’s a wacky suggestion: remember “Hooked on Classics?” Time-tested melodies with a disco beat…how can ya go wrong?

Anything that refers to the behind… Rump Shaker, Baby Got Back, Fat Bottomed Girls, etc. Makes me remember why I’m doing all those lunges. :-) Also, gotta love I’m Too Sexy as a warm up/ way to get into working out. I also like Latin and Indian beats, helps me to stay on the rhythm.

I have a few different playlists that I use but right now I have Christina Aguilera’s “Fighter” on all of them toward the end just before I get ready for a cool down. It gives me that extra push I need to finish strong.

(254) Crimson Phoenix says:

Fail-proof, “no-mercy” mix: Trick is to have some speed, along with good cool-downs and have beats that will bring you high and low. Don’t be a slave to genre lines. Mix the following with generous portions of White Zombie and Nine Inch Nails and thank me in the morning:

Higher – Creed

Take on Me – Ah-ha

In the End – Linkin Park

Live to Win – Paul Stanley

I know by now that your eyebrow is probably raised pretty high, but trust me, don’t knock it until you try it. I have a few more ingredients in my personal pump mix, but no magician gives away all of his tricks. This should be a good base for anyone looking for a good workout mix.

April 6, 2008 at 5:09 am
(257) Miguel G says:

“You’re the Best” by Joe Esposito is a kick ass song to work out to, especially if you’re an ’80s child.

Motorhead – Ace of Spades
Motorhead – Time to Play the Game
Disturbed – Glass Shatters (Stone Cold Steve Austin’s music)

Ska is actually good for working out. Save Ferris has some great songs, a very pop ska band. Also Reel Big Fish and Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

My favs:

Save Ferris – The World is New ; Walking on Sunshine (cover); Come on Eileen (cover); Mistaken ; I want you to want me (cover)

Reel Big Fish & Save Ferris – She has a girlfriend now

Billy Squire – Everybody Wants You

I get some great music for free on the Podcast section of i-tunes. DJ Gamblore has some hour long pods of great running beat tunes. Also “Podrunner” is another great podcast with the beats per minute listed so you can choose the right speed.
If you are feeling spiritual the “Daily Audio Bible” and the “Daily Audio Proverb” are inspiring by Brian Hardin.

believe it or not i like that song “Be like Mike” from the old nike commercials….. I get pumped when listening to it

September 7, 2008 at 8:31 pm
(271) Daniel Likes To Dance says:

I like to listen to mash ups when I work out. They are usually upbeat and the mixing of songs that are familiar is fun and distracting. The best IMHO is the two Girl Talk cds, Night Ripper and Feed the Animals. I have put in hundreds of hours doing cardio and strength training to those two albums. Also I like the Podrunner podcast (free!). I download it from the the itunes store. 1 hour of upbeat mixing work out music set at different bpm. Not always great but you can’t beat free!

September 11, 2008 at 4:26 pm

(277) Deb S. says:

I have been putting together a playlist of songs with perfect tempos to walk my dog. (He’s a German Shorthair Pointer and Springer Spaniel mix. This fact may help explain my choises.) So far, I have:

Gimme Shelter-Rolling Stones
Blood and Roses-Smithereens
Because the Night-Patti Smith
Bound for the Floor-Local H
Enemy-Days of the New

This is only the beginning. D’Ogie and I are still working on it!

September 12, 2008 at 4:57 pm
(278) RosaRosa says:

The song is so negative, but the beat is slamming and the side is long playing: “Victim” by Candi Staton

Old school, but a fast, excellent side to walk to: “(Love taught me who was)The Boss” by Diana Ross

My cool down is always “Ectasy” by Barry White, certainly worth waking up early for. The percussion works for my slow walk home.

I go along with the military cadences idea. I don’t run, but I walk. Walking to Mexican marches keeps me energized during my walk and keeps me at a good pace. I just pretend I’m in a great parade and need to keep up with the band. It works for me!

“Uptown Girl” by Billy Joel – good aerobics or dance moves
“Ive Done Everything for You” by Rick Springfield – great for twisting
“Annie’s Song” by John Denver for stretching
“Addicted to Love” by Robert Palmer

September 13, 2008 at 11:38 pm
(287) Charles says:

I am a 45 year old male who works out 5 or 6 days a week. I weight train, do cardio, and practice traditional Japanese Martial Arts. I have been told that my MP3 player has the wildest playlist, but I like it! I listen to old school rap (such as Tupac, Dr. Dre) new rap (like Rick Ross, Lil’ Wayne, Akon) 90′s alternative (Nirvana, Bush) new Metal (Disturbed, Mudvayne) and REALLY new rock (Scars on Broadway, Five Finger Death Punch, Ladytron.) I guess it all depends on the mood I’m in; I have a lot of accoustic versions of hard rock songs as well as (blush!) pop acts like Britany Spears, Shakira, Fergie and Paramore. In my opinion, angry, driving rock works best for weight training, while thumping, socially relevant rap is great for hitting the heavy bag and kata (NOT the ‘booty shakin’ stuff though.)
I drive my wife and kids crazy, and they are very thankful for earphones.

Approaching 40, slowly and reluctantly. Working out 6 days a week at the neighborhood Bally’s. I’ve been an afficianado of electronica since my early teens, and the Trance and Psy/Goa Trance genres work really well both for cardio training and strength training. My iPod playlist favorites: Lambda Core, Sean Tyas, Ronski Speed, Nitrous Oxide, Orkidea, John O’Callaghan, Signalrunners, enMass, Ferry Corsten, Hydroid … etc. The list goes on. And on.

Marches work for me on the Treadmill. Almost too well, in fact. When Garyowens comes on, the Cadence has me bouncing and my Heart Rate goes up right where it should be! But I have to remove my headphones occasionally so that I can go a little slower!!!

October 6, 2008 at 3:52 am
(293) Daphne says:

I use Alias “Waiting for Love” (look it up on youtube), it’s got a fast pace drum beat that gives me the extra push I need to jump start my work out routine in the morning.

I also like Bon Jovi’s “It’s my Life” and Def Lepperd’s “Hysteria”

I watch these music videos on youtube while I workout and lost 10 lbs within 2 weeks!

(299) Erik says:

I like to use a variety of styles and genres to help myself and others throughout what should not be a strenuous Yogic workout, but a pleasent setting where you can just kick back and enjoy some good tunes, get moving, and not have to worry about the sweat trickling down your face (though if you go blind, I’m not liable for any damage it may cause to your eyes and if it does, all that will happen is you’ll gain an acute sense of hearing, so maybe then my music will work its way into your ears!…lol!) I’m also a firm believer in using variety (the spice of life), that good music matters in yoga and that if you let it, you can find a balance between the mental and physical aspects by tapping your spirit on the shoulder and awakening it with so you can flow with ease. They call me “DJ” “DJ Yogi”. Sorry if I took your nickname, so here’s a list of songs I bring to Yoga, though you may not agree with my non-traditional use of yoga music. I say: just go with it becuase you never know, the day you decide to live on the wild side, that’ll be the day you just say, “Music is music!” Enough of that rambling on! Here’s a list of the songs I highly recommend you add to your reportoire of yoga songs that may express your reason for making it to yoga, but hey its just music, so here’s what I got: “teardop” by Massive attack, “Namadjidja” by Issa Bagayogo, “I will possess your heart” by Death Cab for cutie”, “good morning” by Panjabi MC, “evanescent” by Axiom of choice, “Coma” by Buckethead and Azam Ali, “What goes around” by Justin Timberlake, “vermillion, pt 2(bloodstone mix)” by Slipknot, “Sinnerman” by Nina Simone and Felix da housecat, “Love remains the same” by Gavin Rossdale, “Ice (Dusted mix)” by Sarah McLachlan, “angel” by Sarah Mclachlan, “Namaste (Sadhana remix)” by Maneesh De Moor, “Vinyasa” by Soulfood, “breathe” by Telpopmusik, “American Boy (Feat Kanye West)” by Estelle, “hold my hand (KI: Theory remix)” and “invasion” by UNKLE, “My

I came across this site called http://www.myworkoutalbum.com where you can take your favorite workout songs and they will make a workout album for you. They have templates for different sports and will change the speeds. Pretty reasonably priced too. They also have a big database of over 3500 songs listed by beats per minute, so you can find good workout songs on iTunes, buy them (or they’ll buy them for you) and then have them make the album. It’s very cool.

I see a lot of great suggestions here. Some of them have both a good workout beat and relevant motivating lyrics. Here are my five favorites that meet both of those conditions. I haven’t seen any of them mentioned yet.

Rufus – Once You Get Started (…oh it’s hard to stop)
Paul McCartney – Spin It On (…don’t stop, take it back, to the top)
Don Henley – Building the Perfect Beast (need I say more?)
The Cars – Don’t Cha Stop (…don’t cha stop, don’t cha stop, don’t cha stop… if it makes you feel good)
Don Henley – How Bad Do You Want It? (…not bad enough!)

(317) Kiri says:

I use anything with a good beat. Im a dancer so am used to using music so I have certain songs for different workouts and speeds (the faster the song, the faster I go- its kind of a challenge).

Anything with an upbeat tempo is good because it keeps your mind off what your actually doing where as something boring and emotional is just going to keep you in the bored state and isn’t exactly going to help on your workout mission.

I agree with “me’s” comment. 80′s music is the best, very workout-able music. It’d be like doing a new version of jazzicise!!!!! :)

(335) Philip the Organist says:

A word to the wise-
Rock, Techno, Disco, some jazz and country, punk, contemporary Christian, and other styles of popular music are distinguishable from classical music by their beat. In most classical music, marches and Christian hymns, the beat structure looks like this:
1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 or
1 2 | 1 2. Thus, the first and third beat are accented, and the second and fourth are subordinate.
But in almost all pop music, the beat structure looks like this:
1 2 3 4 |1 2 3 4
Is it a big deal? Yes. The backbeat (pop music) goes exactly against the natural rhythm of your heart.
This is fact, even though it is rarely mentioned outside of the music world.
Be forewarned, then, that excercising to pop music may put your heart under significant stress-the workout plus the beat of the music. So play it safe, go with classical music. It also is more beneficial to the brain-there is loads of research to prove it (and also plenty of research to show the debilitating effects that rock can have on one’s body.)

(368) hughbert the huge says:

a few people have already said it, but what makes time go the fastest is when you listen to a set of songs where you have absolutely no idea what the next song is. this is risky, because if you use the radio you get commercials and if you use shuffle this is also risky. if there was a way to make a playlist and then forget what you put on it, that would be the best. i guess you could get really drunk and make a playlist, and if you did it right, when you wake up you wont remember the songs on the playlist. but even this would be very dangerous and hard. plus you run the risk of accidentally seeing your playlist on your ipod the next day before you have even started your workout. if you got your friend to make the playlist for you, but then you run the risk of your friends choice of songs totally sucking nuts. it seems there is no way to make a playlist and forget the songs you put on it…. There is no free lunch

When I run it needs to be

When I stretch it needs to be

Kenny Chensey, Sugarland, Toby Keith, Garth

WOW what a range but I find the variety helps and the musice helps to either amp me up – for weights, or calm me down for stretching.

Good luck to all with your workouts:)

I’m one of those guys that likes to just totally immerse myself in the music during cardio and be able to just zone out and keep up a solid BPM to keep my SPM high with something to match to. Admittedly, I backload this playlist with songs that just seem to have some pick-me-up to them when I get into the last 15 minutes of a session and my body’s starting to want to quit.

“Halcyon & On & On” – Orbital (The “Hackers” soundtrack has some great electronica that eats up 7-8 minutes at a time… great for warm-up because it starts out slow and builds and bridges really well into other higher BPM songs)

“Play With Me” – The Thompson Twins (OK, so “Cool World” was a pretty lame movie, but the soundtrack has some early dark-electro gems on it)

“Augen Auf!” – Oomph! (I actually speak a little German so I understand this song, but even if German is totally foreign to you, Oomph! has some great pumping Electro/Symphonic metal that gets the heart pumping)

“Let the Beat Rock (Boys Noize Remix ft 50 Cent)” – Black Eyed Peas

“Stronger (Red Foxxworth Remix)” – Kanye West

“Everybody Do It Again” – Lobsterdust (Lobsterdust is the mashup king. This one Jay-Z, Missy Elliott, and the Chemical Brothers. For those of you looking for electro remixes of classic rock songs, this is your guy!)

“Heaven Scent (John Digweed mix)” – Bedrock (Digweed’s variety of trance is about 50/50 on working well for workout tracks and a lot depends on who he samples. This Bedrock cut is ideal though; I used to use it in my warm-up but I’ve recently moved it to the middle of the rotation and found its a lot more efficient)

“Legion” – VNV Nation (Bridges almost seamlessly into “Cowgirl”)

“Cowgirl” – Underworld (the “Hackers” soundtrack strikes again!)

Good afternoon, Happy April Fool’s Day!

My wife invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to our six-year-old daughter and said, “Would you like to say the blessing?”
“I wouldn’t know what to say,” she replied.
“Just say what you hear Mommy say,” my wife said.
Our daughter bowed her head and said: “Dear Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”

Happy April Fool’s Day!

Thusly, Airborne, Ac/Dc, Jet, BTO, Metallica, Hedpins, Guns and Roses, ZZ top, Led zep, CCR, a smattering of Shania, Tom Petty, Billy Idol, Nirvana..yes I know these are as old as the Phoenicians, but their beat is fast and stedy

I’ve been getting into the drop-kick murpheyus and flogging molly recently. When you’re feeling nakkered, the boring beats of r’n'b singers and the rock songs that i’ve listened to too many times before doesn’t help, so i inject a bit of Irish spirit to give me an extra umph!!
