What's in Your Ears?

I am on a semi-constant search for good workout music.  I need something that will pump me up while at the same time uplift me.  It seems to be an uphill battle sometimes.  I'll hear a song and think, "Hey, that's a good one!  And it's clean!"  Then in the middle of my workout, I'll think "Eeep!" and hurry to change the song.  I have some songs on there that have a good beat, and others that are more for cool down or while lifting weights or something.  The trouble is, there are more slow songs than anything else.  So I'm completely looking for suggestions.  And do me a favor, if there's anything really objectionable to any of these songs, please let me know because apparently I don't always hear it.
Here are the songs I have on my playlist right now (and yes, I do have a music crush on Stevie Wonder - it began with the Cosby Show) Some of them are linked, so just click if you want to hear the song.:
