    I like upbeat things... I tend to go for the "pop" or the "pop-rock". Something you can run to.

    What Jeff said about upbeat music. I like progressive house / techno...it's a workout for the mind while you're lifting or running.

    I work with a trainer much of the time, so I don't wear earphones; I get along w/ what the place pipes in.

    Given that not only am I nearly 60, but I was never really into rock (when I was under 25*, I was in the folk revival instead), it's not suprising that whenever I notice myself liking the music, it's almost always unsuitable for working out! For that purpose, it needs to be simple and pounding. So when stuff I like is on, usually the station gets changed--which is a Good Thing!

    If I ever do go to 'phones, I think I'll try brass bands playing marches. There've gotta be CDs, right? Even though you can't get a radio station that plays 'em regularly, let alone exclusively!

    * I've heard it said, and it seems to be about true, that after you turn about 25 they never write songs you really love again!

    Non stop Techno.. It's actually some cds that I copied from a store that I used to work at. I just started listening to my iPod (while working out) a few weeks ago and it makes a big difference... the time just seems to fly by, and i'm able to concentrate better.
