  • I have a friend who is a drummer. He knew right away when I asked him for a base song list of 180 cadence. So here is the beginning of my list...some song dated but fun and good paced...
    Billy Idol: Dancin' with Myself
    Thin Lizzy: The Boys are Back in Town
    Judas Priest: Breaking the Law
    Van Morrison: Bright Side of the Road
    Don Henley: the Boys of Summer
    The Police: Message in a Bottle
    Fleetwood Mac: Tusk
    Kenny Loggins: Footloose
    Tom Petty: Running Down a Dream
    Queen: Don’t Stop me Now
    Prince: I would Die 4 U
    Ricky Martin: Living La Vida Loca
    Pat Benetar: Love is a Battlefield
    David Bowie: Modern Love
    Led Zepplin: Rock and Roll
    Rocky Horror Picture Show: Time Warp
    Electric Light Orchestra: Roll Over Beethoven
    Journey: Suzanne
    U2: Beautiful Day
    Rod Stewart: Young Turks
    The Vapors: Turning Japanese
    Rush: Marathon

    Hope this helps

  • Great list! I've got most of those already, but there are a few new ones I'll add to my playlist.

    Staying in the ~180bpm range, here are a few more suggestions:

    Curbside Prophet - Jason Mraz
    Fat Bottomed Girls - Queen
    Give It Away - Red Hot Chili Peppers
    (Weird Al's "Bedrock Anthem" version is great, too)
    How Far We've Come - Matchbox 20
    I'm Still Standing - Elton John
    Juke Box Hero - Foreigner
    Kickstart My Heart - Motley Crue
    Love is a Battlefield - Pat Benetar
    Rock Lobster - B52s
    Such Great Heights - Postal Service
    No Way Back - Foo Fighters
    Gonna Fly Now (Rocky theme)
    I'm On Fire - Springsteen
    Smiley Faces - Gnarles Barkley
    I'm So Excited - Pointer Sisters
    Some Weird Sin - Iggy Pop
