please don't stop the music

i need new music. i've exhausted my ipod, and if i'm going to be running miles and miles a week, i need new music. this is where you come in. please suggest a great upbeat song for me to add to my running playlist.

things you should know-
1. i very much dislike the black eyed peas. really. a lot.
2. i don't like anything that is overplayed on the radio. if you heard it more than once today, please don't suggest it.
3. i really like 80s hair band music. one of my favorite's is whitesnake's here i go again.
4. i really like some country music. but not alan jackson or trailer park choir. or anything that sounds as hokey as trailer park choir. please. for the love.
5. i love little known gems from old albums.
6. if you heard it at a stake dance or high school dance while growing up and you loved it and tried to do the worm, that would be a good suggestion.

My favorite song of the last few weeks has been Animal by Neon Trees.

It might be silly for you and everyone else, but I love listening to the new New Kids on the Block album. It's called "The Block". Lots of good ones. My fav is "Dirty Dancing". :) "Single" is also really fun.

Firecracker by Josh Turner is great.

I don't know if these will end up being good running songs or not, (but I like them) I'm going to try them out and see how it goes, but here are some suggestions:

Just the way you are by Bruno Mars
Do you remember by Jay Sean

I'm also going to look into some of the Biggest Loser mixes. My cousin says they are all "recent songs pumped up & remixed a bit."
