Mixed Tape

I love making mixed tapes (more recently known as playlists) and regularly dedicate hours to making the perfect ones. I have made people cry with my amazing mixed tapes! My mixed tapes could bring world peace to the 21st century. My mixed tapes are used in the finest institutions as the preferred music therapy to heal the sick. The world's most interesting man doesn't always listen to mixed tapes, but when he does, it's one of mine.
Recently I invested a fair amount of money at iTunes for a killer new workout mixed tape and I can't wait to try it out. I've been running to the same playlist for about 6 months now and it's not working anymore. I keep skipping songs and dreading the next one that I know is coming. This latest creation isn't tried and true yet, but I have a good feeling about it.
I'm not claiming that these songs are great-it's a workout playlist. However, I think they will be great for keeping me motivated on the treadmill. Here's the list and after I run to it a few times, I'll let you know if it works. (Also, I might do some song rearranging to make sure the flow is right)

Telephone-Lady Gaga
Get the Party Started-Pink (the only song of hers I like)
Hello-Martin Solveig & Dragonette
Oops!...I Did It Again-Britney Spears (Oh young Britney...you were so cute)
Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)-Kelly Clarkson (Chubby Kelly motivates me to keep running)
Undo It-Carrie Underwood (Sexy Carrie also motivates me)
What the Hell-Avril Lavigne
Satellite-Lena (My favorite German Idol artist)
TiK ToK-Ke$ha (Ugh, that dollar sign S is soooooo annoying)
Firework-Katy Perry
Just A Girl-No Doubt (Just A little obsessed with Gwen)
You Make Me Feel...(feat. Sabi)-Cobra Starship (I'm the baddest baby in the atmosphere...lyrical vomit but I love it!)
Rude Boy-Rihanna (Explicit lyrics...bad words help you keep going)
Titanium (feat. Sia)-David Guetta & Sia (I've never done ecstasy but this song makes me feel like it)
Lights-Ellie Goulding
Paris (Ooh La La)-Grace Potter & The Nocturnals
That's Not My Name-The Ting Tings (I added that one to make it 60 minutes)

I tried to use only songs by female artists (there's a couple with dudes in them). That's another part of the mixed tape obsession. There are rules to follow for each tape. It's a challenge. Did I miss any on this one? I need more suggestions.
