After several months of sloth-like inactivity, I've decided to resume my thrice weekly trips to the gym. However, I went this morning, and found my iPod playlist sadly lacking in the motivation department.
I have some Bon Jovi on there, a few of the faster Queen songs, some Poison and Green Day, as well as a selection of upbeat country songs. However, on the uphill parts of the elliptical routine, I find myself constantly searching for 'Bleed It Out'* by Linkin Park, which is a bit...rougher...than the stuff I normally listen to. Also, you will notice, significantly newer than the rest of my selections. I know, I know, I'm an easy-listening old lady at heart.
However, some of you must enjoy music from the current century, and thus I seek your recommendations. For those that exercise, what song do you listen to at the most difficult part of the workout? For the rest of you, if you had to drag your lazy asses off the couch, what song would you pick to accompany you?
