BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST
“All of Me” 50-Minute Ride
Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
Are you ready for a new playlist? This time I wanted to return to a few songs that had previously been “retired” from my classes plus introduce a couple of tunes you may not have heard before. This is a 50-minute interval “ride” that you can use on your next run, bike ride or treadmill workout that will help keep you motivated to keep moving.
So let’s get started and as always—send me your favorite song suggestions!
- All of Me (Tiësto’s Birthday Treatment): John Legend
This is one of those songs that I find myself singing along to every time it comes on the radio and grateful I work from home alone so no one can hear me as I couldn’t hold a note with a handle. Anyhoo, here is a pumped-up of version to get your workout started.
- Leopard Print Pill Box Hat: Beck
I am a big Bob Dylan fan and this might be my favorite cover of a Dylan song to ever. (Okay—All Along the Watcher by Jimi Hendrix is a strong number two.)
- Come & Get It: Selena Gomez
I pray she did not write this for Justin Bieber… that little creep.
- Breathing Underwater: Metric
Yesterday two of my boot camp dudes complained this song made “no sense” because “you can’t breathe underwater.” (Sigh—try to inject some culture in people and they get so literal!)
- The World I Know: Collective Soul
This is one of those songs that always reminds me of the mid-90s (Sigh, again.)
- Hypnotize: The Notorious B.I.G.
Be sure to use the “clean” version if you are playing this in a class!!
- Let Forever Be: The Chemical Brothers
Noel Gallagher of Oasis co-wrote this tune and sings the vocals which is why it is so awesome. “How does it feel like—to wake up in the sun? How does it feel like—to shine on everyone?” Love it!
- Paralyzer: Finger Eleven
This song gets the whole room to work harder and sing along.
- Left Hand Free: alt-J
This is a brand new song from an indie based in Leeds, England and it made stop and take notice the first time I heard it.
- Came Back Haunted: Nine Inch Nails
Trent Reznor came back from a long absence writing movie soundtracks to resurrect the Nine Inch Nails last year and this is my favorite song from that album. Perfect for interval sprints.
- Sirens: The Pack A.D.
This band is from Vancouver and they can rock out.
- Ring of Fire: Social Distortion
This is an example of a song that I used to play weekly and then just had to stop as it was starting to get on my nerves which is just NOT okay. Glad to be able to enjoy it again and hope you do as well! (The live version in the video is super-fun.)
- Free: Phish
Oh stop your complaining Phish haters—this is a FANTASTIC song and you freaking well know it!
That’s all I have today folks. Let me know about some of your favorite songs and radio stations. I am always looking for good tunes.
