BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST
The “Four-Climbs & Some Foos” 50-Minute Ride Set
Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
This week I was in the mood to rock out to some old 90s tunes while climbing hills so this playlist is a reflection of that notion. There are four “hills” here and I urge you to try to push yourself and the amount of resistance you use on a climb. Tire your legs out on the hills and then recover with intervals. Let me know what you think!
- Middle Sea: Yuck
Here is a brand-new band from London with a kind of cheesy name. (Never commit to a band name that’s funny—that kind of stuff will get tiresome for them real soon!)
- Use It: The New Pornographers
This is one of those fun “bouncy” songs that always seems to put people in a good mood.
- Can’t Hold Us: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (featuring Ray Dalton)
I know some people are suffering from Macklemore exhaustion but this song is pretty damn great.
- I Will Wait: Mumford & Sons
Every time I hear this song I forget that I am supposed to act too cool for Mumford & Sons. (They write catchy tunes, people!)
- Apparitions: Matthew Good Band
I really wish I could find the video for this song but am happy we to have this clip to share today.
- Come With Me Now: KONGOS
This is another new band with a strange name in ALL CAPS but regardless of how I feel about that choice—this stompy tune is fun to sing along to. “Come with me now!
- Doin’ Time: Sublime
Cannot believe how old this song is (1997) or how old I am. (Need a nap now.)
- Spaceman: The Killers
Not sure why more people don’t know this tune from The Killers because it kicks serious ass.
- Clint Eastwood: Gorillaz
I use this for a slow, heavy climb in my classes.
- No Light, No Light: Florence & the Machine
Thing song makes me want to grab a hairbrush and lip sync my little heart out.
- My Hero: Foo Fighters
The Foo Fighters wrote this about Kurt Cobain which makes it extra poignant. (Plus, I still really have the hots for Dave Grohl.)
- I Can’t Go For That: Hall & Oates
The Philly Soul duo is now in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame—about time!!!
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…
