Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
Sorry for the delay in my playlists but this week I promise to go music & playlist crazy this week beginning with today’s list (below) which is just a hoot to teach and I think will get you motivated on the treadmill, bike or wherever you take your cardio. It leads with what (IMHO) is Ricky Martin’s best song—The Cup of Life.
So let’s not dilly dally and get right to it!
- La Copa de la Vida: Ricky Martin
This song was the official anthem of the 1998 FIFA World Cup and gets things off to a very festive start.
- Crank it Up: Hipjoint & Sherry St. Germaine
My sister recommended this ditty and I could not thank her more for bringing it into my life. Such a fun and bouncy tune and really help build energy into the room.
- Promiscuous: Nellie Fertado & Timbaland
My second favorite song by Nellie with I’m Like a Bird being number one (of course.)
- Houdini: Foster the People
Every time I play this song people smile and bop their heads. I thought they were a “one hit” band but maybe they will have a long career?
This used to be included I the commercials for Burn Notice. (Never seen an episode—is it any good?)
- Gone Daddy Gone: Gnarls Barkley
Honestly, this may be the best version of the Violent Femmes song.
- I’ll Stick Around: Foo Fighters
I love me some Foos in my playlist every now and then. (Well, they are featured frequently in my class because they rule.)
- Come As you Are: Nirvana
To stoke the fires of my 90s music love—we have THE grunge band that matters. (After Soundgarden.)
- Kids: MGMT
I am one of those dorks who thought the band name was a shortened version of the word “Management.” Anyhoo—this is song is perfect intervals.
- The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly): Missy Elliott
“Beep beep! Who’s got the keys to the Jeep? Vroooooooooooooom!”
- Fame: David Bowie
I like this song for tough climbs. Just add as much resistance as
you can stand (or create a tough incline on the stairmaster) and go! Enjoy this clip I found of Bowie on Soul Train before someone makes me take it off.
- Stupid Girl: Garbage
More 90s love going on here.
- Get the Party Started: Pink
Pink is just about my favorite current artist and this song always puts a smile on my face.
- Wish You Were Here: Radiohead
Yet another remake on the list which is (almost) better than the original.
So what do you think of my list? Do you have any suggestions? Anything I should try in my classes soon? Please feel free to send me your suggestions!
Until next time…
