If I am home, I am usually listening to Coldplay, Smashing Pumpkins, or just a mix of MP3s. If I am at the gym I plug my ear buds into the TV channels and watch all those lame judge shows that come on during the day...gotta love them! PLus they make an hour on the treadmill go by pretty quickly!

lol, Breeze! You may be talking to the only creature on the planet who doesn't have an iPod . . . my better half even has an old mp3 player that he uses for listening to the radio! But my hearing has been so bad for so long that I keep background noise to a minimum if I can, and when I'm walking out on the (narrow just-barely-two-lane gravel) road, I need to be able to hear approaching vehicles.

OTOH, if anybody offers to put something on the stereo while I'm just sitting here playing on the computer, I'll take Ramsey Lewis . . . and if they have to have vocals, I'll take Dean Martin!

Pam-Your selection of music is that of a youngster! My youngest nephew listens to those groups. I am a little to old for those groups. And Shanny, best to walk without music in case a truck comes barreling down the highway!

Anything thats upbeat that makes me want to just start dancing Motown, disco, 80's, some 90's. Anything but country unless its early Loretta Lynn (Love Coal Miner's Daughter ) Once, I got into talk radio while I was using my total gym but had to stop and catch my breath when I got "fired up" about something and started to call in and give my opinion!

My favorite thing to listen to is actually Audiobooks. I listen to them on the treadmill especially and when it gets to a good part or I get excited, it makes me want to walk/jog/run faster. I just have to remember to stop myself from going "Noooo! You idiot!" and "Yay!" out loud as I have a tendency to talk to the characters when I read. Once at work I got a few funny looks because I started banging my head on the table when a favorite character did something stupid.
