New and in deseprate need of music

Hi all,

 

So i have decided to finally get my behind from the couch & start running. Although I exercise around 3 times a week I NEVER run & the reason is I find running (or doing anything for 1/2 an hour) boring. So in order to be able to stay on the treadmill I need GOOD MUSIC (with lyrics... not a trance/electro kindda girl)

I was wondering if anyone has good (pop?) podcasts or lists for Iphone/Ipod  to help me out(with all the running/walking alerts) ? I know there are Ullrey & Christian pop.. but none of them are something I like..

HELP? Please!?

Thank you!

    I like Indie Feed from Itunes. It's a free podcast. A new song comes out every few days to week. I like the electronica, which you said you don't like, but they have an "indie feed pop" channel that plays pop music.

    kmbebon, 

    This is one awesome list!! Black Eye Peas make some really good dancing music and it just so happens to make the run even better. You are on point with "Rock That Body" and "Imma Be" on the list.

    I'm not sure if you've heard of Vampire Weekend, but I would highly recommend them. Nice, chill music to run to. The most recent album "Contra" is pretty cool. My favorite song on there is "White Sky". Check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhdqfX44zUM

     

    Hope this helps!

    Holiday - Green Day

     

    Mr. Blue Sky  & Turn to Stone - ELO

     

    Separate Ways & Don't Stop Believin' - Journey

     

    Long Time - Boston

     

    Running on Empty - Jackson Browne

     

    Long Train Running & China Grove - Doobie Brothers

     

    What A Feeling - Irene Cara

     

    Inside Out - Eve 6
