Ok girlies, I need your help!

I seriously need to update my iPod running playlist. Lately, I've just been shuffling my entire iPod when I run, but it never fails that in the middle of my run, a super slow, dragging song will come on - which totally makes me want to quit and go take a nap. Then, when I try to skip to the next, there always seem to be a million slow songs right together. UGH!

So here's where you come in... I need my lovely bloggy friends to comment with your favorite upbeat, rockin' tunes. I'm planning on updating my iPod this weekend and getting in some great runs next week - hopefully with no naps in the middle.

Help a sista out! :)

My favorite jogging music is Britney Spears - especially her newest album

I love the first 4 songs on Now 30. I wouldn't normally purchase this but it was free from the library!
I have started listening to books on tape for my runs and I am NEVER disappointed. They take me away and I don't even realize it's been an hour and a half. I would go crazy if I had to listen to the same music that long 5 days a week. I pick them up from my local library and load them to my shuffle.

It's called a "playlist"... you put songs in there and label it "workout"... and in that "playlist" you only put songs that you want to "workout" to. I can show you later if you want.. hahaha

Really? Is that how it works? I guess that's what I'll do with all the song suggestions I'm NOT getting! LOL

I know most of the songs I will suggest are very pop but that is what I run too. The new Britney Spers albom, TI live your life and Wathever you want, PCD I don't need a man and When I grow up. I also listens to some 80's tunes some old school Cindy Lauper, Michael Jackson, Wham. From time to time I also enjoy listening to some bible Study podcats. Time flies by when I do and since God gave me my schedule I'm sure he won't mind me multi tasking!!!

Polka Dots & Protein Bars said...

I go for anything fun and peppy by some off the wall artists... Hellogoodbye, Mika, Basement Jaxx, Swirl 360. They are so fun and bouncy!

BrnEyedGal said...

I may be the only one that says this but I find some country tunes to be really upbeat and fun...
Rascal Flatts...Life is a Highway is a good one. Or some of Sugarland's early work from their first album is really fun.

There is one song by Mary J Blige that makes me wanna just get up and dance everytime I hear it...I think it is called "Just Fine" but Im not 100% sure, you will have to look that one up!!!
Good Luck!

I love jogging to the Black Eyed Peas!

Jenster said...

Boom Boom Pow (black eyed peas), most of Janet Jackson's songs, Britney Spears ( she's got a lot of good songs, I like Toxic ). Joey's idea is the best though...sorry kiddo.

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
