I need your help!

I'm going to get an ipod shuffle... I need fun & funky songs to put on it for when I run (as it is nearly warm enough here to run outside without risk of dying on the ice/snow).

Suggestions??

What's on your ipod?

(thanks!!)

I think there was a similar thread on the 'old' forum... my suggestions are any Janis Joplin, Roadrunner (love the Jazz Butcher's version), Queen is good..

I don't really know "new" music, so mine would be New Order, The Cure, Depeche Mode (do I sense a theme here?).:)

What sort of music do you like? Personally I like to run to rap :D Angry music gets me pumped.

Ben Folds can be fun, upbeat music sometimes - I like his new CD a lot, although I don't know if I would run to it :)

LOL Jess... I like to drive to rap (but only if the boys aren't in the car... can't have them learning all those nasty words lol) I was going to put rap on it for sure.

LOL Felicia! Okay then here we go:

American Boy - Estelle ft. Kanye West
Pop Champagne - Ron Browz
The Black Album - Jay z (all of it hehe or actually if you can find a version of the Grey Album that is awesome - it's the white album mixed with the black album, really cool sound)
Graduation - Kanye West (the whole album is great it kind of goes slow, fast, slow - perfect for warm up, workout, cool down)

I also have some random Dave Matthews added in (Warehouse, Ants Marching) and really like working out to Guster (Lost and Gone Forever is my favorite CD of theirs).

John really likes the Fretellis (I know I spelled that wrong probably) and Kings of Leon - he's always got those on lately - not sure how I feel about working out to them, but he seems to be okay with it :p

Enjoy the shuffle!

Felicia, do you have CDs you love? Put them on the computer, make them MP3s, and load them on the Shuffle through iTunes.

Rap...err. Not sure if he is strictly 'rap', but try typing Dizzee Rascal into YouTube or iTunes and check out the songs. He has some great songs for working out to.

I think my taste in music is too old for you

When I used to run, I had:

John Cougar Mellencamp (sp?)
Bruce Springsteen
Tina
Creedence
Stones
Pink Floyd
...etc


warm up and warm down songs by Al Stewart (year of the cat)

Oh yeah, forgot that one, it's on my workout playlist too. Crack a Bottle
Oh yeah I like that one too - I just catch it on the radio now, but it would be a really good addition to the iPod!

I'll suggest a Nano in lieu of the shuffle, ;) because I like seeing what songs I am going to...

and then add some Kanye, Luda, Sir Mix a Lot (Baby got back), anything Counting Crows, hmmm....my favorite walking songs right now are Ben Lee - Catch my Disease, Eric Hutchinson - Rock and Roll, and of course, Michael Franti - Say Hey.

Some old school TLC, and P!nk can't hurt no one :) Have fun!

There are a few bands that really help me workout... mainly RHCP, Foo Fighters and Green Day. Other than that I can't really help in the music department... most of my other music is Australian artists but I just wanted to say how much I love my shuffle when I am working out!
