Top 10 Must-Have Songs on my Sweat-It-Out Playlist

I love to work out.  But I can't work out without music.  Somehow, running on a treadmill is just boring and painful without music to keep me going.
Here are my...
Top 10 Must-Have Songs on my Sweat-It-Out Playlist

10)  Let's Get It Started -- Black Eyed Peas

9)  Brick By Boring Brick -- Paramore

8)  Mr. Brightside -- The Killers

7)  You Give Love a Bad Name -- Bon Jovi

6)  All the Right Moves -- OneRepublic

5)  Go Your Own Way -- Fleetwood Mac

4)  Bring Me to Life -- Evanescence

3)  Raise Your Glass, So What, U + Ur Hand -- P!nk (yes, I know that's 3 songs, but they're all equally essential)

2)  Show Me What I'm Looking For -- Carolina Liar

1)  Bad Romance, Just Dance, Poker Face, Paparrazi -- Lady GaGa (again, multiple songs by 1 artist, but all absolutely essential for a run)

***Honorable Mentions include Daughtry, Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson, Madonna, and the Mamma Mia soundtrack***

I'm always looking for songs to add to my workout playlist.  What songs pump you up?

    I agree - I have to have music when i'm on the treadmill (:

  10. So funny, I have 10, 8 and 3 on a workout mix a friend made for me. And some Fleetwood Mac. I don't know if you were ever a Violent Femme's fan (I know, so retro) but Blister in the Sun is on there too :).

  11. A few of my favorites
    1. Apollo 440 "Stop the Rock"
    2. Fall Out Boy "Dance, Dance"
    3. Cowboy Mouth "Jenny Says"

    There are so many I have to listen to when I'm running but these are my absolute must haves!
