Musical Motivation!

Ok, something I've wanted to do for a long time is to post my workout playlist. It's long, I like variety. The thing is, I've more or less had the same playlist for a very long time. 

I am doing a 1/2 marathon on Sunday, I have an iTunes gift-card burning a hole in my pocket, and I need some help. What songs are missing from my playlist? What get up and get moving songs need to be here, and you are just shocked, SHOCKED I tell you, that they are not here?  Leave me a comment and tell me what songs NEED to be here!
