Music can change my mood in a second. It can make me weepy or it can make me energized. I’ve tried running both without and with my iPod (RIP, Steve Jobs), and I’ve found that the right kind of music really gets me revving on my runs. (I also discovered that my running pace apparently has the same beats per minute as Billy Idol’s “Dancing With Myself” and Kenny Loggins’ “Footloose”!) Here are some of my favorite workout tunes:Body Movin’ – Beastie Boys Sure Shot – Beastie Boys Get Up I Feel Like Being A Sex Machine – James Brown Just Can’t Get Enough – Depeche Mode Survivor – Destiny’s Child Ya Mama – Fatboy Slim We Got The Beat – The Go-Go’s Dancing With Myself – Billy Idol Footloose – Kenny Loggins Maniac (Flashdance) – Michael Sembello She Works Hard for the Money – Donna Summer Stronger – Kanye West
