    Love this list, mostly!!!! Our kids had a deep conversation going last night…”Who’s the best rapper, EVER, do you think?” I just jumped right in, “L’il Wayne, are you kidding?” They just looked at me like I was an alien…”Yyyyeah, p-probably sooo,” with furrowed brows…heehee…I almost felt cool. : )

    I would say you pretty much summed up my playlist- well, I either have the songs on my MP3 player or those are alot of the songs that I wanted to get on my player. It is really sad now, when I listen to the radio, I dont really listen to the music, a ll I think about now is “Man, that would be a good running song”.

    what about The Uprising, by Muse? Or almost anything by Muse? (big Muse fan here).

    Christina Aguilera also has some great tunes to run to.

    Oh, and for whatever reason, I L-O-V-E the version of One sung by Mary J Blige and U2. It totally rocks, and is usually my go-to warm-up song.

    Rock on!! 🙂

    Some others I like to run to:

    “Hard” by Rhianna-(I love the quote “Go hard or go home!”
    “Break your heart” by Taio Cruz and Luda!

    Cool list. Totally all over the board. Picked up a half a dozen to mix things up for myself. Thanks!

    I just got a nano for Christmas so I’ve been all over gomusic putting together my play list. I just added some angry rock to offset the dancy pop. I selected various songs from the likes of Weezer, The Toadies (the entire rubberneck album is great), System of a Down, Pantera, Tool, Nine Inch Nails, and Seether. I now have a good mix of dancing and vandalism.
