(Some Queen is a good idea...thanks Stacey!).

I have noticed that a lot of my workout songs are not what I choose to listen to when I'm in the car or at home just doing normal stuff, but they really work for a workout. I even use some groups and styles of music I don't really care for because they just get me going during a workout. Fortunately I have a teenager and I'll hear some of the stuff he listens to and notice that it will be good to work out to, so once he downloads, I snag it too

There is a lot of stuff out now that is techno that has a good beat, and some sites let you search for "workout music" and you can download a whole album like my cardio instructor does.

It's just trial and error, but it's like exercise...if it works for you, you'll use it. If it doesn't, you won't. Other than that, there are no "rules" about what works best.

I took your word for it and decided to try and create my own workout playlist and I did! I found a lot of tracks that really make you move. I'm posting them here just in case someone else wants to try them .
