I received a $25 iTunes gift card for my birthday. I've been wondering what i want to purchase. Pretty sure it'll be songs that would be good for working out to.

I was reviewing my big case of music CDs and realized that except for about 2 discs i haven't purchased anything in about 5 years, nor listened to anything out of that case in about 3. I actually want to listen to most of it again too. I think i've swung out of my Indie phase and back into alternative. For example listening to Disturbed suddenly seems appealing again. Not that i'll cross of Sufjan Stevens off my list but he's a little too mellow for what i've been wanting lately.

In general my taste is pretty diverse, i'll listen to country just as readily as hip-hop (i'm probably a little more picky about what hip-hop than anything else).

What songs do you like working out to?

3 What do you think?:

* Cage the Elephant, "No Rest For the Wicked"
* Weezer, "Buddy Holly"
* The Little Ones, "Morning Tide"

* Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, "Heads Will Roll"
* Okkervil River, "Lost Coastlines"
* David Byrne & Brian Eno, "Strange Overtones"

* Sugarland, "County Line"
* Santana, "I Am Somebody"
* Michael Franti & Spearheads, "Say Hey (I Love You)"

* Lisa Marie Presley, "High Enough"

Excellent, thanks for the list! I do a lot of speed walking and weights a couple of days a week. At least that is when i'm keeping my schedule.
