    Scaredandscarred of course Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake! I get goosebumps whenever I hear any variation of the Swan Theme

    my favorite part is 1:05-1:30!

    I love the Russian composers, especially Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky. My favorite piece of all time is the Rite of Spring— I wish I could have seen the ballet in person, but I nearly cried when I found this:

    The original choreography from the one and only performance of the Rite of Spring ballet was lost after the riot, but someone found notes in an attic somewhere and they recreated the first act!


      Usually if I"m exercising in the server room I don't put on a playlist. But if I'm climbing the stairs:

      Pacific Rim, Ramin Djawadi
      Halo 2 Theme, from the Halo 2 video game soundtrack by Marty O'Donnell & Michael Salvatori
      Main Title Theme from the Battlestar Galactica (1978) tv soundtrack
      The Wings Of Icarus, Celldweller
      Being Alive, Audiomachine
      Stronger Faster Braver, Two Steps From Hell
      Heart of Courage, Two Steps From Hell
      Moskau, orig. by Dschinghis Khan (my recording is from a tribute band called Rocking Son)

      Also a separate playlist for the occasions when I do want music for other exercise:

      Woke Up This Morning, A3
      Pacific Rim, Ramin Djawadi
      Vortal Combat, from Valve Software's Orange Box soundtrack
      Hammer to Fall, Queen
      Red October, Audiomachine
      Robert Mackenzie, Paul Gross on the Due South Vol. 2 soundtrack (I usually fastforward after the lyrics finish because there's an extra minute and a half of music and a brief spiel from the TV episode when they used the song)
      Rock El Casbah, Rachid Taha's Les Inrockuptibles album
      Stronger Faster Braver, Two Steps From Hell
      Under Pressure, Queen and David Bowie
      Mein Herz brennt, Rammstein

      (TBH I have a lot of production music albums- pieces written specifically for movie trailers, video game trailers, etc.- that I swap in and out for exercise time. The adrenaline stimulation factor that production music tends to require goes a long way when it comes to exercise.)

        I don't really have a workout playlist yet. Part of my problem is that my go-to station is a public-supported classic station in Boston (WCRB 99.5FM), which is not exactly what one could call conducive to working out to.
        My preferred station is NPR, so I get it. But, I still find I can concentrate on the workout. If I don't like the programming, I switch to a popular music station. I used to not be able to switch easily because Alexa has just recently learned how to get that station from TuneIn. I guess Alexa got confused in the past.

            Since I´ve got a lot of different playlists for different things I´ve got multiple playlists for working out. So I´ll just post one now and the others maybe when i feel like it. It´s not really my usual taste in music, but it helps me get a move one. And since I put my playlists on shuffle, I´ll just post it in alphabetic order. Makes it easier for me. With 50something songs this is by far my longest workout playlist, but still a pretty short one compared with my three main playlists with ~ 200 songs each

              That was a welcome surprise, did not expect such a powerful kick out of bagpipes


                I don't really have a playlist...I have a laptop in my basement hooked up to a stereo. So I will usually blast music like BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, SLAYER, PANTERA, OZZY OSBOURNE, BLACK SABBATH, DISTURBED, AC/DC, AMON AMARTH, HELLYEAH, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, VOLBEAT...Basically hard rock and metal.


                  This question comes up with some regularity, and likewise my answer doesn't really change.

                  Exercise music should be loud and terrify you into running faster and pushing harder - Pantera, Lamb of God, Mastodon, Gojira, Meshuggah, etc etc


                    for me as long as i got a beat i can do anything! well maybe! i do like thunder by imagine dragons thats my pre workout song, gets me going~


                      AwkwardPenguin Imagine Dragons and Panic! At The Disco? I see you're a person of culture as well.

                      I have more than 2000 songs on my playlist, so I guess it's better not to put it here.
                      But here go some artists:

                      Imagine Dragons
                      Billie Eilish
                      Michael Jackson
                      Panic! At The Disco
                      Twenty One Pilots
                      The Weeknd
                      Jacob Banks
                      Post Malone


                        I have a few different playlists that I choose from, depending on how and feel and what kind of workout I'm doing...though video game soundtracks make up a big chunk of all of them, especially Final Fantasy XIII.

                        Night before last the playlist was selected tracks from the Hatsune Miku Project Diva F 2nd video game!
