Best Workout Music – My Top Summer 2008 Songs

by Ratko on June 27, 2008

As I’ve explained before in my previous post with regards to good workout music, the best songs are the ones that evoke emotion. Since we are all different, we all have certain preferences that are suited to our temperaments and personalities. The following playlist is what gives me the most drive at the gym… at the moment. I’ve laid off some of the slow melancholy stuff and rediscovered some older classics in addition to some new tracks.

1. The Offspring – Gotta Get Away
2. Jay-Z & Linkin Park – Numb/Encore
3. Oasis – Morning Glory
4. Pearl Jam – Do The Evolution
5. Rage Against The Machine – Renegades of Funk
6. She Wants Revenge – Tear You Apart
7. She Wants Revenge – Red Flags and Long Nights
8. Cardigans – My Favorite Game
9. The Smiths – The Queen Is Dead
10. Sisters of Mercy – Flood II
11. The Watchmen – My Life Is A Stereo

I’m always on the hunt for new stuff, so feel free to drop some suggestions if you feel passionate about them!

Thought I’d add some suggestions to the list:

Prodigy – Narayan
Prodigy – Mindfields
Mos Def – There is a Way
Wu Tang Clan – Shame on a Nigga
AlexisonFire – We Are the End

quality suggestions… actually that’s funny, i have Mindfields on my iPod right now, but Narayan is an old gem i hadn’t considered.

good timing too. my current playlist is on the brink of being completely played out.

I think you’ll find the Mos Def track exceptionally motivational.

I have a wide assortment of anything upbeat…great to run to. AC/DC, Van Halen, GNR, Offspring, Rammstein, Rob Zombie, White Zombie, Disturbed…the list goes on. Any of this stuff is great to match beats to and keep up the pace of a run. The one thing I do not have is RAP – you can’t spell crap without rap.

I work out to songs like uh;
Kat DeLuna – Be Remembered & Whine Up

Anything from T.a.T.u, Three Days Grace & In Flames.

A bunch of techno songs.
Da Rude – Sandstorm & Benny Benassi Vs. Public Enemy – Bring The Noise (Pump-Kin Remix), help me the most really.

Rev Theory – Hell Yeah
Raunchy – Somebody’s Watchin’ Me

& Other stuff like that.
