Brooklyn Fit Chick Playlist: 50-Minute Ride with Rihanna, In The Valley Below, U2 & More


Rihanna’s “Only Girl” Ride (50 Minutes)

Featuring My New Favorite Song: “Peaches “from In The Valley Below

In the Valley Below

In the Valley Below


Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

My newest playlist leads off with one of my favorite performers right now—Rihanna. How amazing is she? When greeted by fans at the airport after a long flight, instead of hiding she poses for a series of fun selfies. The rest of the tunes here are a mixture of current and older tunes designed for a 50-minute interval cardio workout. (Or just put it on for any workout, really!)

Let me know what you think of it and remember—I need song suggestions, always.

  • Only Girl (In the World): Rihanna

I like this song for warm-up as it has a fun, clubby-type of vibe that gets the room in a good mood. (Mood is very important!)


  • Kid Icarus: Sam Roberts

If you are not familiar with Sam Roberts, he is a Canadian singer-songwriter who kicks serious ass.


  • Voices in My Head: The Police

OMG—the bass line on this song is seriously dope! I played this one last weekend for the first time in years and the class loved it.


  • Even Better Than the Real Thing: U2

I have such a distinct memory of Dana Carvey hosting the MTV Music Awards in 1994 and playing drums (as “Garth”) with U2 to this very song. (Oh 90s pop culture—how I miss you so…)


  • Kids: MGMT

This is one of those bands who recorded a fantastic first album and could not follow it up with a hit. Honestly I would have picked them to be the next Black Keys.


  • I’ll Stick Around: Foo Fighters

Me and my Foos go together like peas and carrots.


  • My Type: Saint Motel

If you are looking for something new that has a fun beat—try this one out from indie band Saint Motel.


  • Lost: Coldplay

I know people like to make fun of Coldplay or anyone who admits to liking their music but dammit—I love this song!


  • Outta My Head: Kylie Minogue

Whenever this tune is played if you can actually resist singing along than you are simply not human and indeed a robot monster.


  • Hey Ya! Outkast

I like this song for fast sprints and upping the energy level in the room


  • Stronger: Kanye West

Yes—he is an egotistical buffoon at times.  However, the dude knows how to write a hook something fierce.


  • Peaches: In the Valley Below

I am obsessed with this song! In the Valley Below has an amazing 70s mellowness with 80s techno vibe and supposedly the duo brews their own micro-beer!


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.


Until next time…

Ox Ox,
