Whenever my exercise motivation starts to lag, my first avenue of attack is to change up my music. It always spices up my workouts, and knowing I have a few great new songs to listen to makes me look forward to going to the gym, even when I’m tired. I also need a constant stream of new music ideas for putting together spinning classes. Gotta keep it FRESH!

But finding new or interesting music can be quite a challenge sometimes.

I get music ideas from all over, but usually rely heavily on the iTunes store and iMixes in particular. Recently, though, I’ve found that Blip.fm is a lot of fun, especially because so many of my brilliant and creative Twitter friends are on there. More great resources include the Jim-Fit blog, Pandora Radio, and, of course, hubby @thronkus‘s spinning classes. And then there’s always @akaMonty‘s Friday Night LIVE, but I would say that music is more what *not* to play! 😉

I know there is so much more out there, so tell me: what are your favorite music inspiration sources? What are your favorite workout songs? What’s at the top of your iPod playlist RIGHT NOW?

And also, are you an in-the-car rock star? I know *I* am! 😉
