Who are some good artists to put on a playlist. I have 2 different is a Christian playlist and the other is my rap playlist. In my own mind I feel like I can't combine the two. Smile Doesn't seem quite right listen to Shoulder Lean by Young Dro then Live Life Loud by Hawk Nelson.

I am looking for some awesome artist ideas to put on either playlist.Cool

If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired.-George W Patton

For me, the Village People. Disco just seems to have the right beat to keep me moving.

I am usually a punk / rock chick, Social D is my favorite to work out to, but I have been listening to alex clare and muse a lot lately. They have a steady beat and you can just zone out to it.

I'm a punk rock, hardcore girl.
I listen to the band Rise Against almost religiously and it's my favourite band to listen too while exercising because the beat is amazing to run to and their lyrics get your blood pumping. I also listen to bands like We Came as Romans, Sleeping with Sirens, Amity Affliction, Miss May I and a bunch of other stuff.

If you have an iPad or iPhone, I use Pandora (it's like creating your own station). To start, you search on an artist or song you like, then it will pick songs that are similar. I can give a thumbs up if I like and it (and it will play), thumbs down if I don't and it will skip it and try another. I think there are other iPhone apps that work similar but I like it because I wind up gettings songs I would have never thought of and many of my favorites.

House, Goa Trance or Psy have the best rhythms for walking. Like a nite club in your head!

All of this!

I listen to a lot of music I wouldn't normally listen to when I am running. I think it's important to pick upbeat stuff, sometimes even encouraging songs.. RAP songs are perfect because they are all about SELF improvement and striving to be better.. well usually.. I know Jay-Z songs do that...

I don't really listen to either Christian or rap music but I do listen to some really Christian artists so maybe that counts? I love Owl City (upbeat + there's some clear Jesus-love in some of his songs), and Lights (whose faith isn't super obvious in her music, but it is upbeat and inspirational). Aaand back in my pop-punk days I liked Relient K, who I'm pretty sure are still classified as a Christian band?

And in addition to Pandora, if you have an iPhone or other iDevice, I recommend the Songza app. You can pick playlists based on moods, activities, genres, decades, cultural things (like Halloween or autumn), and a few other things (there's a section called "Record-store clerk" with groupings that don't necessarily fit into the aforementioned categories).

(Warning hardcore may not be fit for everyones consumption)


Listen closely to the lyrical content. It is the ultimate message of perseverance, self improvement and overcoming obstacles. Although not musical genius per-se, one of the most motivating bands I know of.

Do you use pandora?? They have a variety of fitness stations to choose from. I use country fitness or pop fitness, they usually just play upbeat songs. Works for me! Smile
