Eye of the Tiger by Survivor is always a good choice.

I know that when exercise instructors put together song lists, they do so according to the beats per minute of the song, which depends upon the intensity and pace of the cardio exercises you'll be doing and your Target Heart Rate.

Some articles about making BPM playlists:

This site just gives lots of suggestions for mixes:

There are commercial sites that you can buy mixes by BPM, but I couldn't include links to those. Easy to google, though.

Have fun!

Pandora actually has pre-built workout stations that you can then "like" and "dislike" songs to format it more personally. Maybe listening to one of those for a while could give you ideas you wouldn't normally think of.
