Brooklyn Fit Chick “Ventura Highway” Playlist featuring Robin Thicke, Jake Bugg, Jamie N Commons and Bowie! 5
BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S WORKOUT PLAYLIST
50-Minute Intervals Ride
Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
Recently I found a playlist a colleague of mine left behind at the gym and found a plethora of new tunes that I needed to check out right away.
Sooooo—today’s list is a 50-minute interval ride with more flat roads at high speeds than heavy resistance climbing. It starts off with a remix of a mellow 70s songs that I love to death and finishes with a favorite “Babooey” tune. So let’s get to it!!
- Ventura Highway(Deepsky’s Blizzard Remix): America
This song is a new favorite discovery for me. It’s just so light and sweet and makes me want to wear a poncho and sit by a campfire.
- Rumble and Sway: Jamie N Commons
“Don’t you give me no truth I want all of your lies—whoo hoo!” (Tell me this doesn’t make your butt wiggle a bit!)
- Short Skirt/Long Jacket: Cake
The video for this one always makes me smile.
- Once in a Lifetime: Talking Heads
I usually play the live version because it rocks too freaking hard!
- I Am One: The Smashing Pumpkins
Back in the day I would play this song at full volume tearing down the California highway. (Good times…)
- Blurred Lines: Robin Thicke
Here comes the dirty video!!!
- Lightning Bolt: Jake Bugg
No this is not Bob Dylan but rather a teenager from England–really!
- Just Like a Pill: P!nk
Love, love, love this song to death.
- Heroes: David Bowie
The second climb of the ride is a long, windy one and features this tune by one of my favorite artists of all time.
- Snow (Hey Oh): Red Hot Chili Peppers
I know all of their songs sound the same but they also all sound good IMHO.
- My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark: Fall Out Boy
This has to be my favorite tune of the summer of 2013.
- Helen Wheels: Paul McCartney & Wings
My favorite Beatle performs this (one more before we cool down) ditty. (Seriously, how cute is he?)
- Baker Street: Gerry Rafferty
Okay Howard Stern fans—when you hear the sax sing “Ba Ba Ba ba booooooooey!”
So what do you think of my list? Remember to send me your favorite tunes in the comments below.
Until next time…
