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 Guessing he just MIGHT be on something funny here but do not quote me on that.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.

Until next time…

Ox Ox,

    Some really great songs there. 1979 was a good year. That’s why I love that song. Man the 70s……..

    Great blog/vlog. And great giveaways. The 5 Ingredient Fix book is a clever idea. Simple food made great 🙂

    Hi there. Thanks for the great playlist-nothing puts me more into getting on with things than with the help of music. I weigh roughly 50 kg. Wants to lose the belly fat that makes my jeans too tight, I smoke like a chimney and drink because I am from Finland. But. Today, this moment I decided. Im joining you. Healthy me, I cant wait.
