Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I am trying to get better about putting up my playlists as people seem to enjoy them so let us not dilly dally—okay? Today’s ride features a few of my current favorite songs plus a 7- minute climb using an eerie Dave Matthews number from the 90s.

Do I have you intrigued? Then let’s get to it!

  • Trojans: Atlas Genius

I know absolutely nothing about this band but this song caught my attention right away and I knew I could start a ride with it.

  • Desire: U2

Desire is the prefect “second” song but it begins with a crashing guitar sound and delivers the perfect, driving beat for 3 minutes.

  • Youth Without Youth: Metric

Metric came to NYC last year and I could not get tickets—grrrrr!

  • Keep the Car Running: Arcade Fire

This might be my favorite song by them but all of their music is pretty great.

  • Thrift Shop: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

The version full of cursing makes my heart soar. Most favorite new song on the list by far!

  • Elephant: Tame Impala

I like doing out of the saddle climbing with this weird little ditty.

  • Gold Digger: Kanye West

Please get the clean version if you play it in class! It is still plenty filthy, don’t worry!

  • Troublemaker: Weezer

I think the Red album is my favorite from them.

  • The Pretender: Foo Fighters

The Foos are the best with making super-fast songs that make everyone work their asses off with sprinting.

  • Crabbuckit: K-OS

Please come back to NYC K-OS!!

  • I’m Shakin: Jack White

I am starting to become sexually attracted to Jack White. What does that say about me?

  • Don’t Drink the Water: Dave Matthews Band

This song is perfect for a long, slow climb and has kind of a spooky sound.

  • Call Me Maybe: Carly Rae Jepsen

It only took me about 10 months but I think I get why this tune is so popular. Yay me!

  • Madness: Muse

Everyone tells me that Muse is the ultimate live band. What do you think?

So what do you think of my list? Remember to send me your favorite tunes in the comments below.

Until next time…

BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S WORKOUT PLAYLIST

“Girlfriend” Playlist (The Four-Hills Ride)

 

My favorite hill/climb in Prospect Park

My favorite hill/climb in Prospect Park

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I am so behind on posting these damn playlists-sorry gang. I am going to try harder. Promise!

Anyhoo—today we have a 50-minute ride with 4 medium-sized hills. Instead of my yapping about where I got the inspiration –why don’t we just get to getting’ instead, shall we?

  • Girlfriend: Matthew Sweet

I love, love, love this damn song so much and it always puts me in a great mood. Makes for the perfect warm-up tune I say.

  • Use It: The New Pornographers

A fun little ditty from a Canadian band I really enjoy.

  • What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger): Kelly Clarkson

I am not the biggest pop music fan but dammit if this song doesn’t make me want to sing along at the top of my lungs!

  • I Will Wait: Mumford & Sons

Some people are really sick of this band but I think I am finally coming around to them. Go figure!

  • Apparitions: Matthew Good Band

The first climb in this ride and has a nice slow, steady pace.

  • Americano: Lady Gaga

Now for a slight change in mood…(man is she ever skinny in this video!)

  • Doin’ Time: Sublime

The second climb and it has wee bit of ska punk feel to it.

  • 1979: Smashing Pumpkins

Another tune from the 90s I just love and always makes me long for a long, meaningless drive in my old car.

  • Clint Eastwood: Gorillaz

I am not sure if I love the song because of the video. It’s pretty cool, right?

  • Wait a Minute: The Pussycat Dolls

I heard this at the ECA NY convention and for some reason had to buy it off Shazam right away. It’s just too damn catchy!

  • My Hero: Foo Fighters

Apparently Dave Grohl wrote this in honor of Kurt Cobain.

  • Crank it Up: David Guetta & Akon

I liked to do “heavy sprints” to this song.

  • Pets: Porno for Pyros

I love anything to do with Perry Farrell, but this live performance is not my favorite thing in the world. (Sorry but I could not find the original video!) Guessing he just MIGHT be on something funny here but do not quote me on that.

 

So what do you think of my list? Remember to send me your favorite tunes in the comments below.
