Exercise Music

So I've started another training plan, this one to get me ready for my Avon Walk in October. This morning, while I was walking outside and listening to my iPod (don't worry it was turned way down), I had on my Exercise Playlist - a compilation of what I consider to be upbeat songs or songs with a good beat to to keep my pace. I'm listing them below but I got to wondering - what's some of your favorite music to listen to while exercising? Specific songs? Specific artists? Anything I'm missing?
