Any other nerds out there addicted to Beat Saber? It's kind of sad to say, but it's my primary source of cardio right now. It's so fun, I can easily blow an hour playing. What's some of your favorite songs? Please share.

Here's a list of the ones that I have tried so far that I think are the most fun:

Can't Stop the Feeling - Justin Timberlake
Shut Up and Dance - Walk The Moon
I Would Walk 500 Miles - The Proclaimers
Dragula - Rob Zombie
In The Air Tonight - Genesis
The Final Countdown - Europe
Everytime We Touch - Cascada
Never Sleep Alone - Kaskade
What You Know - Two Door Cinema Club
Thunder - Imagine Dragons
Uprising - Muse

And my personal favorite.....Seagulls! Stop it Now! - Bad Lip Reading

    Beat Saber and BoxVR are actually what have gotten me up out of my chair and back into improving my health. So much easier to grab 20-minute fitness breaks during the day, get my cardio in without ever having to leave the house (I work from home, and I don't live in a walk-friendly area).

    Some of my custom favs:

    Mr. Brightside
    Shake It Off
    Kung Fu Fighting
    Lone Digger

    Finally another Beat Saber fan! I've played the first three, but I'll have to look up Lone Digger. Shake it Off and Kung Fu fighting are fun, but I didn't like the map of Mr. Brightside.

    Search by author and download anything by BennyDaBeast. His maps are the BEST.

    I downloaded The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies right before Christmas and that has been my son and I's newest favorite.

    I am determined to beat The Ultimate Showdown, but so far I've been unsuccessful for months. There's just one little section that kills me every time.

    Some of my favorite custom beat saber maps:

    Du Hast - Rammstein (a great song and a great map)
    Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day
    Gagnam Style - Psy (does an excellent job of incorporating the iconic dance moves)
    The Final Countdown - Europe

    Honorable Mentions:
    Macarena - Los Del Rio (also does a good job incorporating the dance)
    Shia Lebeouf - Rob Cantor (it's a funny song)
    Centerfold - J. Geils Band (pretty challenging yet fun)

    Hi to everyone, I'm Software developer so I'm always sitting behind computer. Beat Saber is great and motivated way to workout for me. I have psvr, so my playlist is limited and unfortunately I don't have your songs list.

    I just started doing Beat Saber as an addition to my cardio routine. So excited to try out some of the custom maps recommended here. Especially Du Hast! How do you all record this in your exercise log? Do you list as generic cardio?

    I don't log exercise, but I think generic cardio should work fine. There's a new mod now that will do a generic calorie count for you once you setup an account and enter in your age, height, weight, etc. According to their calculations I burn about 150-200 calories for 30-45min which sounds about right. I've played with my son's setting on and he burns almost 500 calories for the equivalent time. :(

    Some decent newer ones we've downloaded have been:

    Cycle Hit
    The Rockafeller Skank
    Happier/Sunflower mashup
    Down With the Sickness

    Again, I would start with downloading all of BennyDaBeast's songs. You can just put that in the search and it will show all the songs he's mapped.

    Also, @rankinsect - I crack up everytime I play Shia Lebeouf. Have you seen the actual performance piece? It's awesome.

    @mom23mangos - I was thinking of your recommendations last night when I played and had a great time jamming out to Shut Up and Dance with Me. My 8-year old daughter was also busting out some great moves (not in VR, but in real life - we screenshare it on our TV), so it was a fun family fitness session.

    Happy Weekend!

    I know nothing of Beat Saber, but I freaking crack up every time I hear Seagulls! Stop It Now!
