Here's what I've got so far:

Girlfriend -- Avril Lavigne
Bodies -- Drowning Pool
Paralyzer -- Finger Eleven
I Kissed a Girl -- Katy Perry
Numb/Encore -- Linkin Park
Closer -- NIN
U + Ur Hand -- P!nk
Hips Don't Lie -- Shakira
Crazy Bitch -- Buckcherry
Beat it -- Fall Out Boy
Psycho -- Puddle of Mudd
FMLYHM -- Seether
Addicted -- Saving Abel
I hope last night doesn't wake up this morning and tell tomorrow what I've done

If evolution exists at all, it likely explains why there are big, small, round, long, green, red and green tomatoes. It in no way explains why there are tomatoes, lettuce, onions, and peppers. The explanation is salad"

Used to listen to trance and that... ...and then I started mixing a bit. Hmm... different intensity and for different training rounds. Sometimes its just wonderful with music that is a bit full of attitude. Like, metal with heavy tracks in the background. *dun dunderDUN* ;)

Trance is too repetitive in the long run. Only do music for running and biking and things that got a sense of speed. It feels mostly like its in the way otherwise.

oh well... todays music in the track:
Bazzpitchers - Dooh Dooh (Club Mix)
Code Red - 18 (Dan Winter Remix)
Cascada - What Do You Want From Me (Original Mix)
Fantasy Project - Crazy Baby 2008 (Original Radio Edit)
children_of_bodom-banned_from_heaven
children_of_bodom-blooddrunk
children_of_bodom-done_with_everything_die_for_nothing
Mustasch - I Hunt Alone
Mustasch_-_double_nature
Mustasch-im_alright-ser

Usually only listen to a few and then its over. Could probably do with a 128Mb player.
I don't get people that need more - > 4Gb ;)

yeah, 512to 1024 MB is enough for anyone.
Prodigy's last album has a lot of nice pushing tracks....used those a lot when I was still cycling.

Work out for the energy rush
Work out to feel your body grow stronger
Work out to your health
Work out because it makes you FEEL good

But don't ever work out to fit into size 3 jeans or live up to assholes ideals of what beauty is when they eat a celery stalk and 2 hard boiled eggs all day, because no amount of music can force you to be a person that you are not. I'm not a size 3 and I never will be. It has been rough losing the baby weight, but I'm nearly there now, and I did it without starving myself or working out like a fanatic. I do however LOVE to jam on my iPod to some fab trance and clean house or dance when nobody is looking, for the fun of it, to make me feel better, not because somebody says I need to be skinny. There are so many beautiful people out there, regardless of size. You are one of them.  :-* The best way to find good work out music is to find something that makes you feel inspired and good inside. Equate working out with fun. I hate traditional work outs and find dancing is the only way to go. You will find your groove.

Mandie...I appreciate where you're coming from and completely agree with you. I will never be a size 3. I will always have curves, boobs, and a butt. I'm not ashamed of that. I've been weight lifting for 2 years now and running 3x a week for 3 months or so. I do it for me. I like how I feel after working out. I like being strong. And I love the fact that my asthmatic episodes have dramatically decreased over the past year. In fact, I no longer carry a rescue inhaler :)

Its just every now and again I need new music to listen to. I can't listen to everything out there, so I ask for suggestions. Sometimes I'm reminded of songs I love but haven't listened to in ages and other times I find new songs and bands to fall in love with.
I hope last night doesn't wake up this morning and tell tomorrow what I've done

I could need some nice music suggestions as well.

I have been running for about 3 years now. Pretty much daily in the last 2 years if you make exception for the winter. Running doesn't really feel hard nowadays and I think I can close in and average on 3.30 per km in a 5km race which is as good as I'll ever be, though I rarely run on time. It's been a year since I was to a gym, though I got some lighter weights at home its not quite the same thing. Will start going back before the end of this month because it's starting t get cold and dark outside now. I also tried some martial arts and kickboxing. (I didn't like the later because I don't like kicking on people  and the training times wasn't adjusted for people with work ;))

But overall, better shape, lower puls when doing work. It hasn't made me feel better but for me it's something to do on the weekends and I prefer to have a tormented body rather than a tormented mind. It sometimes feel good to look in the mirror, sometimes not so good... but at least there is some change. ;) ... and i.e. it's also something I do because I can't stand the rest of my life and it keeps me busy from falling into a dark pit... :P

I'm going to try to get into swimming, though that one is more embarrassing. (is a very bad swimmer) but at least try some so not serious personal sessions.

If it's something that I do regret it is that I didn't start earlier to at least do something.

Muse - Time Is Running Out would be a def for me. Especially when cycling.

I need an mp3 player... :(

Just make sure you remember that wearing your mp3 player while swimming might be a bad idea

I remember seeing an mp3 player that was designed to take swimming, though. I'm sure you can find it if you're desperate enough... ;)

I dunno. I should probably mention that stones floats better than me.

Grab the torrent Top 100 Best Techno Vol.11
Might be around on thepiratebay ;)

Pretty decent when you have removed the songs you don't like.

hmmm... it's techno, so I guess that would leave one or two "songs" in a best case scenario.

One day, when he was naughty. Mr Bunnsy looked over the hedge into Farmer Fred's field and it was full of fresh green lettuces. Mr Bunnsy, however, was not full of lettuces. This did not seem fair.
