What's on Your Workout Playlist?

By December 13, 2012

Follow me on:

I posted this back in 2007, but I like to recycle it every now and then for purely selfish reasons: I need new workout music. As you probably know, there are some days that your iPod is the only thing that keeps you going and the right song at the right moment can be just what you need to finish your workout.

So, take a look at your latest playlist and tell us what you're listening to these days. Here's mine:

"Good Luck'" by Basement Jaxx & Lisa Kekaula
"Not So Pretty Now" by Nine Inch Nails
"Bridge Burning" by Foo Fighters
"Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" by Cage the Elephant
"Rock That Body" by the Black Eyed Peas
"Too Close" by Alex Clare
"Elevation" by US
"I Will Wait" by Mumford & Sons
"Supremacy" by Muse
"Juliet of the Spirits" by B52's

For more great ideas, visit this post, What's Your Favorite Workout Song? and scroll through the comments. You'll find some great ideas for your own playlists.

I just found some great new workout tunes thanks to everyone’s comments! =)
For cardio, I have to listen to music that is fast and upbeat. Most Scooter songs work great but some may sometimes be too fast (like Dutch Christmas, Waiting for Spring, or their remake of Rebel Yell). Samba also works great and makes me want to shake my booty while running. lol. Try Olodum – As Duas Historias for a good workout samba song.

(49) 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

Some great songs and comments here! Surprised no one has mentioned bpm (beats per minute) with songs.
I’ve spent a lot of time researching music for running and I think it works well as fitness music too. If you look into many studies done, they show that performance can be enhanced, but you need to have songs that match the bpm (beats per minute) to your pace. Some of the songs mentioned above are great songs, but they are way too slow and may make you subconsciously slow down to the beat of the song…esp. on the treadmill. I’ve put a few of my favorites w/ bpms below and if anyone is looking for more music, I have over 60 hrs of songs that are inspirational, about running/fitness, or at least are fun w/ great beat (no “19th Nervous Breakdown”, “Loser”, “Blister in the Sun”, etc.)

Some favs:

Hey Now Now – The Cloud Room (150)

Hannah – Freelance Whales (180)
