Best Workout Songs

The other day CBC Radio 2 asked listeners what their favourite music is to work out to. I have been attempting as of late to go to the gym and get into some sort of shape, so this has been a perplexing question for me. What music do I best jiggle and jump to?

Here is a list of some of my recent top fav's to pound the ground to:

1. Dog days are over - Florence and the Machine

2. Wolf Like Me - TV on the Radio

3. You Make my Dreams Come True - Hall + Oates

4. Float On - Modest Mouse

5. Arc of Time - Bright Eyes

6. Gimme Sympathy - Metric

7. King of Spain - The Tallest Man on Earth

8. 1901 - Phoenix

9. Sprawl II - Arcade Fire

10. This Thing About You - Miracle Fortress

Honourable Mentions:
The Rural Alberta Advantage, Black Eyed Peas, Anberlin, and Pink.

Cyber friends, any music that you love to groove and move to? I would love to add some new tunes to the ol' ipod! Please share!

"Jiggle and jump" to? Hmm, is this that new 'strippercise' they keep talking about these days? If so, I can't think of many better songs than "What a feeling" by Irene Cara.

Keep it up, though! Our physical condition affects the rest of us, for sure.

bahahaha! i just watched the youtube official video. So sad how music videos have changed...they had such style and finesse in the 80's...90's? pre-2000's anyway.

I agree with number 1, 3, 4 and 8.
I also like to run to cosmic love by Florence - makes me feel like im on some great mission haha! whatever gets me there.
Also i would recommend 'derezzed' by daft punk, great little number.
Good list!
