BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST
“Shut Up and Drive Ride”
Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
I love putting together playlists. The ability to be a coach while also indulging in my “secret DJ” side has brought me so much indescribable joy in my life that I could honestly when I hear a student say “I just love your music!” (Heart is beating faster and spirit is now soaring!)
So when I started to post them up on this here Blog I just sort of wanted to place to just PUT them. I honestly did not expect anyone to actually pay attention but have crazily formed relationships with instructors all over the world who have added some of my favorite tunes to their class playlists.
It makes this Fit Chick so happy to introduce Metric and Dear Rouge to other instructors and now I am asking YOU to send me your favorite song suggestions. Bring –em on and let us all dominate the world with one playlist at a time!
- Shut Up and Drive: Rhianna
Rhianna is sort of a new obsession for me. I am just digging her style and grooving to her tunes as often as I can. This is a fun one to play at the top of the class to get their attention and get them focused on a high energy workout.
- I Heard I Had: Dear Rouge
I am sort of obsessed with this duo from Vancouver who won a ton of radio competitions in the Great White North. Now I need to help them break big here in the States!
- Swamp: Talking Heads
This is my opportunity to get just a wee bit self-indulgent and play one of the my favorite songs form one of my favorite concert films (Stop Making Sense) of all time.
- I Will Wait: Mumford & Sons
Normally I am not a “banjo” kind of gal but this song is fun to get people moving their butts faster to keep up to the beat.
- No Church in the Wild: Kanye West & Jay Z
I love, love, love this song so much and appreciate the Frank Ocean singing along with Kanye and Jay Z pretending to be bad asses.
- Jingo: Santana
Okay gang—if you need a song to rev people up and push them—try this one from Santana that features a tribal drum beat that is off the hook!
- Butterfly: Crazy Town
No idea what this song is even about but it is pretty damn great!
- Chelsea Dagger: The Fratellis
I just got turned on t this band from Scotland and this tune makes me want to pump my fist in the air (in a good way, of course.)
- Gold Guns Girls: Metric
This is another Canadian band I am determined to make more famous—one class at a time.
- Poker Face: Lady Gaga
It’s been a while since I featured the shy and bashful LG in a playlist so why not today? (If you get a chance—go to You Tube and look up Christopher Walken reading the lyrics to Poker Face—it’s a gem!)
- Tonight Tonight: Smashing Pumpkins
I like to use this song for a climb that finished with a big flourish—try it and see for yourself!
- Heart is a Drum: Beck
A really dreamy tune and perfect for a cool down from the cooler than ever Beck.
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.
