    Dancey trancey songs that start off slowish and gradually build up are immense. Pendulum, Basshunter...I discovered Paffendorf a while back, a couple of their songs are AMAZING to work out to, especially Where are you and Lalala girl.

    Generally most fast songs that you listen to at a high volume can be really motivating...I definitely could not live without my ipod at the gym. One time my ipod ran out of battery while I was on the cross trainer...I literally almost died of boredom and couldnt actually make myself stay on it much longer!

    The best idea, I find, is to listen to your most favourite songs; this way, you'll want to hear the whole song and so will keep exercising right the way through to the end, and you'll also want to hear the next song. c: This works best if you're listening to an mp3 player while exercising, because you'll generally turn off the music when you stop.

    Also, focus on the music rather than what you're doing, because you'll automatically work and breathe to the beat and get exhausted less quickly because you're not thinking about what hard work it is. Imagine you're singing the song on stage or something. c:

    But in general, something with a strong beat [not too fast] to help you keep a good rhythm, such as drum 'n' bass [Pendulum are excellenté], or a really powerful track. My current exercise song is Angels by Within Temptation; it's not fast, just a really powerful song that motivates you amazingly well. Also, it has a fantastic tune c:
