Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
How are all of you? That’s good to hear! Me? Oh, I am fine thank you very much for asking!
I want to begin by apologizing for not getting more playlists up on this Blog to you. The gym where I teach most of my classes is still an evacuation center for Hurricane Sandy victims so I have been either working out at home more often or subbing at strange and far off locations.
Today I am featuring a playlist that is filled with some of my favorite songs of all time. Put them together for an interval ride, longer run or for climbing on the elliptical. Let me know what you think of it!!
- Did I Say: Teenage Fan Club
Someone burned this song on a CD for me in a casual, “you might like this” kind of way and I am still completely in love with it. Please give it a listen—it’s just to pretty for words!
- Synchronicity 1: The Police
I remember LOVING this album back in the day and this song in particular made me want to dance each time.
- Bootylicious: Destiny’s Child
(Ladies—I speak for all of us when I say that we are finally ready for this jelly. Bring it!)
- Uprising: Muse
One of my favorite climbing tunes of all time—it’s just so inspiring and fun that also has a Nordic/Viking kind of vibe to it.
- Houdini: Foster the People
New favorite track from a band I was convinced would never have another hit. Who knew?
- We Got the Beat: The Go-Go’s
Every time I hear this song—it makes me think of the beginning of Fast Times of Ridgemont High. (Don’t you freakin’ love that movie?)
I should hate this video for being so damn sexist but it is old school Van Halen so I let it go. (“Sit down---Waldo!)
- In da Club: 50 Cent
Am I the only one who hates it when middle-aged white men say “Fiddy Cent!” like they are hip and cool? It gets on my last dam nerve. (Great song that people always love to hear, by the way.)
- Bodysnacthers: Radiohead
If you are looking for a hard-driving tune to get motivated for sprints—this will do ya just fine!
- Stronger: Kanye West
I think this guy likes himself. Just a theory.
- Lost!: Coldplay
Coldplay can drive some people crazy. I don’t care about those people.
- Umbrella: Rhianna
This is by far my favorite song by Rhianna. (Has she released anything that is more enjoyable? I don’t think so.)
- Ordinary World: Duran Duran
One of those swoony songs that makes me want to sing along with my arms waving in the air. (Love me some Duran Duran!)
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…
