Snowflakey workout music question #45356

"Abel" by The National, which is essentially "Born to Run" filtered through indie rock, is the perfect workout song for me, combining the key elements of (1) simple chord progression and song structure, (2) layered instrumentation, (3) lots of energy/intensity (including vocal energy/intensity). Recommendation engines' recommendations have been lacking in (1) and (3), so I'm turning to you guys: can you suggest songs with those elements?

What headphones should I buy to run with?

What headphones should I buy for running and the gym? Wish list: Sounds better, and doesn't fall out as easily as the Apple earbuds; lets more ambient sound through than those in-ear headphones with silicone tips; includes an inline microphone and controls that actually work with an Android phone.

Workout music has been covered aplenty on this site. But what about inspiring music videos to workout to?

So when working out on a cross-trainer like this I usually watch some of my favorite TV shows on my Ipod Touch. Yeah, I know, gotta update to a bigger better stronger device soon ;-) To get me pumped up a little more or to make it through the last gruelling climb, I regularly switch to music videos. And now I wanted to query the hive mind for some fresh suggestions. For more see some examples below. [more inside]

Seeking best techno songs for workout mix

I'm looking for songs similar to James Brown Is Dead. I don't know a lot about techno but I stumbled on this one last year and it's the best all time workout song for me. I have it at the start and finish of my workout. I'd really like to find other songs with a similar beat and feel to them that I could purchase online.

EYE OF THE TIGER!

Give me anything, anything else during any other time of the day, but for my workouts nothing seems to get me revved like cheesy, overdramatic, high-beat 80's pop-rock. Being entirely unfamiliar with this area, I have no idea where to start. Can anyone recommend songs or bands that follow this pattern? To give you an idea of my tastes, the few tracks I have are part of the [more inside]

Slow songs with fast spurts (and vice versa)

What (preferably good) songs shift back and forth between fast and slow? I'm trying to put together an iPod playlist for a workout that goes back and forth between slow, steady jogging and spurts of sprinting. (Yeah, I know--I could just alternate slow songs and fast songs--but then the tempo would only shift every 3 minutes or so.) All genres are welcome, although I have a slight bias towards either jazz/swing or indie rock for this particular mix.
