Led Zeppelin is great classic rock. High energy and fast beat. Have all their albums.

I don't know about about listening to Whitney Houston to become inspired though. Hearing her "one moment in time" would make me mad.

There's the beloved SwiMP3 player (https://www.usasportstraining.com/shop/swimming-gear_21/swimp3_78.html)!

You can listen to your favorite music while you swim your laps.

Does it work that well though? I've heard people say the music ebbs a bit if you change speeds or flip...

I have the fortune of swimming in a facility with underwater speakers. While it is hit or miss whether or not they are in operation during practice, when they are on, they can certainly help those long kick sets. Otherwise, the water is usually running too quickly by my ears for me to hear anything.

Although, I will say, there's nothing like having stevie nicks sing one of those sweet, slow fleetwood mac ballads while you're trying to do some speedwork.
