pink-floyd-01

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

Today I am featuring my new favorite playlist which features a nice mix of old favorites and maybe a few new (to you) ones as well. Hope they inspire you on your next workout!!

  • Best Look Lately: Dear Rouge

OMG—new favorite song in the world! Dear Rouge is a Canadian duo that won a bunch of songwriting contest in the last couple of years and I think they will soon gain popularity in the States. (And my little Blog gave them their start!)

  • Ch Check it Out: Beastie Boys

Representin’ Brooklyn!!!

  • Get the Party Started: P!nk

This was written by Linda Perry of 4 Non-Blondes—bet you didn’t know that!

  • You Should Be Dancing: Bee Gees

Not only is this one of my favorite songs of all time but it serves as the soundtrack for my all-time top dance sequence on film. (So much going on here…)

  • Weapon of Choice: Fat Boy Slim

The video is quite simply fantastic. Yes folks, Christopher Walken can cut a rug!

  • In da Club: 50 Cent

(I cannot believe this guy dated Chelsea Handler!)

  • Looking at the World from the Bottom: Mike Doughty

I know most people know Mike Doughty from Soul Coughing but I am all about his solo work and this tune in particular grooves like crazy.

  • Crabbuckit: K-Os

In my continuing work to help Canadian artists get more American fans—I give you K-Os. (You’re welcome!)

  • Level: The Raconteurs

When does Jack White ever sleep? Does anyone know? How the hell can he put out so much music?

  • The Pit: Silversun Pickups

This is my “sprinting” tune where I make my class move as fast as they can for 10-15 seconds at time. It completely motivates them to haul their butts.

  • Comfortably Numb: Pink Floyd

My one big self-indulgence is playing me some kick ass classic rock and Pink Floyd kicks ass the most of all.

  • The Drugs Don’t Work: The Verve

Such a great 90s band—I miss them.

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.

New Playlist Time! With Katy Perry, Serena Ryder, Lorde, The Lumineers and More. #Playlist 8

BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST

“What I Wouldn’t Do for You” (50-minute Ride)

Katy Perry

Katy Perry

Hey there! Hi there! How there!

I am officially off vacation mode and back to doing what I love to do—write for you lovely people! So today I bring to you my latest playlist which features some new music (and artists) mixed up with some of my favorite rock tunes to get you through your next workout. Let me know what you think of them!

 

  • What I Wouldn’t Do: Serena Ryder

Serena is a Canadian artist who is just starting to catch on here with her hit Stompa. This is her next single which I think makes for a perfect warm-up song.

 

  • Out of My League: Fitz & the Tantrums

I like this fun & quirky beat.

  • Recovery: Frank Turner

With a name like Frank Turner you think he would be a Chicago bluesman but this Frank Turner is an English folk/punk dude who knows how to write a catchy tune.

 

  • Stubborn Love: The Lumineers

This is one of those songs I am not sure if I love it because I hear it everywhere or if it because I think it is good—but I love it.

 

  • Tonight, Tonight: The Smashing Pumpkins

Not to date myself but I could drive all day to this song back in the 90s.

 

  • Synchronicity II : The Police

I am a HUGE Police fan and always loved this song & video but I can’t get the original video on You Tube dammit! Try this clip out instead which I pray to god includes a political ad that features Miss Bunny in it. It made my day!

 

  • Royals: Lorde

Check out this super cool video and know that this singer/songwriter is just 16 years-old! Some people complain about her being played on Alternative radio but I tell them to go to hell. Lorde rules!

 

  • All My Life: Foo Fighters

I love my Foos when the energy needs to go through the roof.

 

  • Steady As She Goes: The Raconteurs

This is for my friend Jennifer who is IN LOVE with Jack White.

 

  • Blurry: Puddle of Mudd

Ignore the fact that the singer Wes Scantlin has his issues and enjoy this old grunge one-hit wonder (Is there any more of an ignominious fate than that?)

 

  • Roar: Katy Perry

Here is the official video which I love almost as much as this song. I am not being snarky here. I LERVE this so much. But one criticism–she kind of looks like an overly glam Alanis Morissette here, no?
 

 

  • You’ve Got Time: Regina Spektor

Have you seen/read Orange is the New Black yet? No? Well get on it dammit!

 

  • Timeless: The Airborne Toxic Event

This is the song I think should be played at graduations everywhere.

 

That’s all I have today folks. Let me know about some of your favorite songs. I am always looking for good tunes!!

 

Until next time…
