I love to work out.  But I can’t work out without music.  Somehow, running on a treadmill is just boring and painful without music to keep me going.  Here are my… Top 10 Must-Have Songs on my Sweat-It-Out Playlist 

10)  Let’s Get It Started — Black Eyed Peas

9)  Brick By Boring Brick — Paramore

8)  Mr. Brightside — The Killers

7)  You Give Love a Bad Name — Bon Jovi

6)  All the Right Moves — OneRepublic

5)  Go Your Own Way — Fleetwood Mac

4)  Bring Me to Life — Evanescence

3)  Raise Your Glass, So What, U + Ur Hand — P!nk (yes, I know that’s 3 songs, but they’re all equally essential)

2)  Show Me What I’m Looking For — Carolina Liar

1)  Bad Romance, Just Dance, Poker Face, Paparrazi — Lady GaGa (again, multiple songs by 1 artist, but all absolutely essential for a run)

***Honorable Mentions include Daughtry, Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson, Madonna, and the Mamma Mia soundtrack***

I’m always looking for songs to add to my workout playlist.  What songs pump you up?

  1. Hi! I guess we have the same taste in music 🙂
    Thank you for the follow and comment 😀

    I'm following you back and I love your blog too! It's impressive ^_^
    Hope you have a great day and I look forward to visiting often!


  2. Love the work out list!

    Sex on Fire (kings of Leon) is a good one
    Sexy Back (Justin Timberlake)
    Pussycat Dolls songs
    Undo It (Carrie Underwood)
    All 90's music
    and of course, Journey!

    Those are a must on my play list

  3. I have two:
    Heart of a Champion – Nelly (he has others that work too!)
    Bleed it Out – Linkin Park

    I can't help but want to run and sweat it out to these songs!

  4. So funny, I have 10, 8 and 3 on a workout mix a friend made for me. And some Fleetwood Mac. I don't know if you were ever a Violent Femme's fan (I know, so retro) but Blister in the Sun is on there too :).

  5. A few of my favorites
    1. Apollo 440 "Stop the Rock"
    2. Fall Out Boy "Dance, Dance"
    3. Cowboy Mouth "Jenny Says"

    There are so many I have to listen to when I'm running but these are my absolute must haves!
