a geek's playlist

Here's a simple topic: Post your favorite songs and music from video games, anime and cartoons that you like to listen while exercising. I'll start with some of my personal favorites:
All these make me feel like I could lift a f'ing elephant for a thousand reps. Now don't be shy and let us hear your selection.

I recommend Eyeshield 21 - Be Survivor. It's like Eye of the Tiger but in Anime form.

Mine tends to be whatever comes on my MP3 player, lol. I do have a certain selection of music I tend to choose every time I exercise, though. And few of them are fast, or are exercise type songs. ^^;.
Adele - Set Fire to the Rain http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlsBObg-1BQ
Adele - Someone Like You http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbXnLn5-7MA
(I only tend to listen to this on walks, though)
Lady Gaga - Judas
Lady Gaga - Bad Kid
Lady Gaga - Bloody Mary
Lady Gaga - Born This Way
(I don't know if I can actually post links to her videos, though, due to some of her lyrics.)
Sting - Desert Rose http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xBL6DLGwtA
Rin Kagamine - Aku no Musume http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q46Osg9C4pA
Megurine Luka - Mind Flower http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwqbVhX9oVU
(and pretty much the rest of the album, too. This is usually reserved for walks)
Gloria Estefan - Words Get In The Way http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdZ4SeK3Gos
and pretty much ANY Evanescence song is part of my exercise play list. XD.
Elton John - Believe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kg9ue76DX8g
Elton John - Can You Feel The Love Tonight http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTtgVSxfr5M
Bryan Adams - Everything I Do (I Do It For You) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGoWtY_h4xo

I have NO idea why these songs work for me. When I listen to songs that would seem appropriate, I don't exercise as efficiently. I get bored, and time just moves to a crawl. It becomes more of a chore. But when I listen to these, exercising goes fast, and I find myself exercising more efficiently. And it's not so much of a chore.
It's very strange, but it seems to work for me.
Anime Central 2018:
Felix Argyle(Re:Zero), Atalanta (Fate/Apocrypha)

Anime Midwest 2018:
Atalanta (again), possibly Jeanne casual, Kyoko Kirigiri, or Felix again. It depends on the weather.

It's nice that you all are contributing to the thread, but please re-read my first post. There are other threads for general workout music, so I decided to do a thematic one about cartoons, anime and video games, so I'm pretty sure Adele and Gaga are out. If this were just another music thread, I would have already posted the entire Queen discography and some Thin Lizzy, too.

^Another thing I love doing is putting on the Highschool Of The Dead opening while I'm jogging and pretending a hoard of zombies are chasing me ;D. It really makes me run faster!~

Ok, not exactly a playlist (thanks for the great suggestions thus far! I've got some great background music going right now) but I LOVE FitRadio. It is an app you can get on your phone and it has multiple genres. Of course, not for everyone...but it has been a life saver for me on runs and while lifting. Lots of playlists built for specific BPM...it's great!!!

I'm got the Disneyland half marathon and the WDW full marathon coming up so my list is dominated mostly by high energy Disney covers.

All three of the Disney Eurobeat albums. Extended versions of most of the DDR Disney's Rave covers are on these discs but none of these samples are them.
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftsOgiu8mKs (Go the Distance)
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehGGegPJMxA (Part of Your World)
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAwuO...R7Q& index=57 (Perfect World)

The Disney Cuties album
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXZ65_FLU3M (Little April Shower)

Most of House Mouse (some of them even I can't listen to...)
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYkdnlX2WHY (Kiss The Girl)

Some of Dive Into Disney
- http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x12...c#.UZRobcpEYnM (Mickey Mouse Club March.....by the Beat Crusaders)

One that actually isn't a cover
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkfPvJQAaIE (Stand Out)

Oh and Weird Al (Doesn't he count as geeky by himself?)
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0cCRRFi1aA (Skipper Dan)

And while I was looking for reference videos I stumbled across this, which I will be adding to my playlist ASAP.

Not an actual song or anything but I run on the treadmill for about 20 minutes. Marvel has all of X-Men: Evolution up and various youtubers have posted episodes from Wolverine and the X-Men and the X-Men: the Animated Series. I used to hate running but I found out it goes by a lot quicker if I'm watching some sort of show as opposed to listening to music.

For my fencing playlist to get me pumped up for tournaments, the Bastion soundtrack is definitely one of the most played things.
