Every now and then I need to change my workout playlist on my Ipod.  I was wondering what everyone else's favorite workout song was for some new ideas.  I love the song "So What" by Pink!

Listening to my iPod while working out is the highlight of my day.

These are the ones that tend  to pick me up:
"Listen to Your Body Tonight" by Black Kids
"Diamonds and Guns" by Transplants
lots of Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs (especially "Pin" and "Mysteries") and System of a Down (the really fast songs, try "Bounce")
"It's Tricky" by Run DMC

"Proud" by Heather Small


What have you done today to make you feel proud?
It's never too late to try
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
You could be so many people
If you make that break for freedom
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
