Ok, I'd probaly be seen as a freak to other people, but maybe I can tell ya that. I go to to the gym about 5-6 times a week. I run for 45 minutes and then 45 more minutes of weigth lifting. It is really boring to run in a machine for 45 minutes, like a hamster. What is the solution for that? An MP3 Player! Music, so you can feel stimulated. Now begins the funny part of the story: At least here, everybody that goes to the gym feels stimulated by some kind f eletronic music, roughly speaking. It is nice for some ocasions, but for running/weight lifting... nah! I like to listen a good and old rock n roll, like "I'm your Boogie Man" by White Zombie, "To Mega Therion" by Therion, "Symptom of the Universe", by Black Sabbath - Sepultura version and "Highway Star" by Deep Purple - this last one, alway remember me about Rock n Roll Racing, wich pleases me. ... and that's how it starts... Video Game music make me run like a crazy. Very nice to run listening to the Zelda Theme, for example. More examples: Ninja Gaiden II and III musics; Super Mario World - Secret Level Music (when you must hit the big "!"); Metal Gear Solid - Encounter (When the enemy find you and start to chase you - run!) Anyway, I think you understood my point. Nowadays, I am discovering some video game music that make me feels "happy" when I lift weights: Castlevania Theme God of War - The Great Sword Bridge of Athena (or "The Splendor of Athens" - I don't remember now) Why am I telling that? I don't know. Maybe to know if I am the only one. Maybe it can be seen as a tip, or yet, you could give more examples/tips of video game music for gym.
