New Playlist: The RIP Avicii and Dolores O’Riordan Ride (50 minutes)

BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST

“RIP Avicii and Dolores O’Riordan Ride” (50 Minute Playlist)

DJ Avicii

 

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

It has been way too long since I posted a playlist as my podcasting world has expanded into FOUR shows (and counting!) and finding the time to not only create new lists but to also post them has been a little overwhelming.

The recent deaths of DJ Avicii and Dolores O’Riordan made me want to revisit their beautiful music and create something special. Today’s playlist is the usual mix of old and new and I hope it gives you that inspiration to run longer and faster than ever. I tried to get videos for all of them but their quality will vary.

I will be back as soon as I can with a new batch of tunes not randomly thrown together. Sending you good vibes wherever you may be!

  • Wake Me Up: Avicii

My favorite song by him, period.

 

  • Synchronicity 1: The Police

This is one of my top go-to “second songs” to play in class, but make sure the stereo speakers are working. If one of them is out, it will sound funky (not in a good way.)

 

  • Worth It: Fifth Harmony

Now we get to the dancy beats of Fifth Harmony.  I love this song so much because it makes me want to show off my moves on the dance floor. (Not that they are worth showing off, but who cares?)

 

  • Sunday Morning: K-os

I plan to make K-os famous in America one of these days. (He is Canadian which means I like him sight unseen.)

 

  • Zombie:: The Cranberries

Dammit, RIP Dolores O’Riordan!

 

  • Wake Up Call: Maroon 5

This song makes me feel like a teenager (youthful but not as gawky as I really was.)

 

  • Lose Control: Missy Elliott

If you can withstand this beat, check your pulse.

 

  • Pray For Me: The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar

The soundtrack for Black Panther is even better than the movie which is saying something, people!

 

  • Only: Nine Inch Nails

This is one of the best songs I use for sprinting intervals because it has an intense feel to it without being overwhelming. Try it for yourself!

 

  • Sexy Back: Justin Timberlake

Okay, so his Super Bowl® appearance was a little less than inspiring, but his music still makes me want to move my booty and this song, in particular, gives me the “happies.’

 

  • Never Let You Go: Third Eye Blind

I actually like this song better than their biggest hit—Semi-Charmed Life.

 

  • Bamboleo: Gipsy Kings

When I want to give a “summery”/beachy feel—I put on this song. Great way to end before the cool down.

 

  • Empire State of Mind: Jay Z & Alicia Keys

This is probably my favorite song about my favorite city in the whole wide world.

 

That’s it for me this time. I will be back soon with another batch of tunes to get you all kinds of motivated!

 

Until next time…

The “Cup Of Life” 50 Minute Playlist with Ricky M., Fifth Harmony, Drake and More!

BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST

“The Cup of Life” (50 Minute-Ride)

ricky-martin

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

It’s new playlist time and today’s was inspired after reminiscing with a friend about the time we watched Ricky Martin kick serious butt at the Grammy Awards in the late 1990s. You will see what I am talking about below where I list all of my favorite songs to play in my classes this past week.

It’s a mixture of old and new tunes that I hope get you in the mood to work a little harder or will just make that workout more tolerable with some good music!

Let me know what you think of it and remember—I need song suggestions, always. So be sure to post them in the comments below!

Thanks!

  • The Cup of Life: Ricky Martin

Just try to listen to this and NOT want to move your booty. It’s impossible!

 

  • Synchronicity I: The Police

This song has an old school 80s New Wave meets rock n’ roll feel that really helps to accelerate the mood and feeling in the room. Like THE perfect second song to play in any workout.

 

  • Worth It: Fifth Harmony

One of those tunes that always makes me want to sing along and declare my worth—which sky high, people!

 

  • Machinehead: Bush

If I have to pick a favorite decade for music it would have to be the 90s and this song reminds me of my younger days when I would play it at full blast while tooling around California.

 

  • You Get What You Give: New Radicals

The term “one hit wonder” has a negative connotation but how many people even have that great one hit even in them much less get to produce it? This song feels like it could be the perfect graduation day tune and always gives me the “happies.”

 

  • Diamonds: Rhianna

I am a little late to the Rhianna party but damn she makes some great music!

 

  • Wake Up Call: Maroon 5

The song is pretty darn great but the video that features my favorite heartthrob Jeremy Sisto—wow!

 

  • The Hand That Feeds: Nine Inch Nails

Trent Reznor knows how to write heart pumping techno meets heard rock music that will make you want to kick it into a higher gear.

 

  • First: Cold War Kids

I love this song for climbs using a ton of resistance or a big incline on the treadmill.

 

  • Hotline Bling: Drake

This is a song I literally cannot get out of my head. And when I use it in my classes my student bop their heads to the beat in the most adorable way. Priceless!

 

 

Bonus version of Hotline Bling  with a cat!

 

  • O.B: Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

If you are looking for a fun, catchy tune to take on a few last sprints—try this one for sure. You will thank me later!

 

  • Empire State of Mind: Jay Z & Alicia Keys

Quite simple THE best song about New York ever though I admit that Billy Joel comes a close second.

 

  • All You Favorite Bands: Dawes

Love this for a cool down song and am grateful I teach in a dark spin room most of the time because when this gem from Dawes comes on over the speakers,  I get  super weepy.

 

That’s it for me this time. Now go out there get your workout in!

 

Until next time…
