I usually listen to Baseball America/Prospectus podcasts when I'm working out.
When I run out of those, here's a sample of what I like to listen to:
Beautiful Day by U2
Smokin' by Boston
Dream On by Aerosmith

Paradise City by Guns N Roses
Don't Stop Me Now by Queen
Don't Stop Believin' by Journey
Apache by the Sugar Hill Gang

Mother by Danzig
What it Takes by Aerosmith
Not sure if the last two are uplifting. But it's what I like to listen to. And yeah, I'm only 31 years old.
Fiesty - there are some great music posts here.
I would only add a theme song my daughter and I found when we trained for a cross Michigan bike ride.
I use this song to pump me up when I feel I cannot do more (My Body - Young the Gaint)
Stop, the train is ridin down to the station
where you lived when we were school kids
Hey, the rails are caught now
And I am falling down fools in a spiral
Round this town of steam
My Body tells me no, but I won't quit
Cause I want more, cause I want more
Stop the train is riding down to the station where I lived
When I was a cool kid
Hey, is it my fault that the fallen embers burn down in a spiral
Round your crown of thieves
cause I want more, cause I want more
And it rides out of town
Oh, it's my road, it's my road, it's my road
It's my road, it's my road, iIt's my road
And it's my war, It's my war, it's my war
It's my war
His eyes are open
Oh, cause I want more, I want more
(Hey, hey, hey)
My body tells me no but I won't quit
My body tells me no but I wont quit
Cause I want more cause I want more
It rides out of town
I guess at times I feel like it is My War and I will not quit.
Good Luck going forward!
I am not going to tell you that it will be easy ... I am going to tell you that it will be worth it!
I shuffle everything for lifting, but there is one thing that drives me nuts, I use my phone for music and also use JEFITNESS for keeping logs of workouts... well my car has bluetooth, so I have music for my son, including mary poppins, justin bieber, christmas, etc... I can't change those fast enough lol.
The last time I did BFL, I had received a mix cd from my cousin for my birthday. It was what they call trance style music normally played at dance clubs. This ended up being my cardio music, it's more than long enough, helps me focus, great beat, and seems to have some encouraging words at times I'm ready to say enough! "The future is NOW, FORGET the past..." except I have the image burned of where I do not want to be. Anyway... DJ MICRO DJMIXED.COM
My blog - http://flatlinersbodyforlife.blogspot.com/

Ratatat- loud pipes
Beck- hell yes
Bloc party -banquet

Bucket head -droid assembly
Muse -super massive black hole
Tom jones -sex bomb (don't judge me!)
Bon Jodi-living on a prayer
Weezer - troublemaker
Some weird Brazilian song I got from my husband. Apparently, if you speak Portuguese, it's filthy.
Also loads of timbaland and and snoop sogg.
Some good bands listed here. I like classic and pop rock too, but I usually listen to techno / dance or rock with an industrial sound when I lift or use the eliptical trainer or treadmill. I have bands like,
Front Line Assembly
Rammstein (great for lifting)
I always crank some good indie rock/dance music when running. My gym has XM radio but always plays awful music, not workout friendly at all. Here's what gets me to 10 every time (these are albums, not songs, btw):

Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
LCD Soundsystem - anything
Daft Punk - anything
Editors - The Back Room
Muse - Origin of Symmetry
The Faint - Fasciination
Underworld - Second Toughest in the Infants

"Trouble" by Pink

While lifting I prefer more hardcore music such as;

Guns-n-Roses-"Welcome to the Jungle"
Guns-n-Roses-"Sweet Child O' Mine"
Led Zepplin-"Black Dog"
Limp Bizkit-"My Generation"
Metallica-"Master of Puppets"
For cardio my music is more laid back such as;
Big & Rich-"Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)"
Alan Jackson-"Good Time"
Blake Shelton & Trace Adtkins-"Hillbilly Bone"
Brad Paisley-"I'm Gonna Miss Her"
Montgomery Gentry-"My Town"
Toby Keith-"Good as I once was"
