BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST
“Summer 2013 Get Lucky” (50-minute Ride)
Hey there! Hi there! How there!
So…how is your summer coming along? You feeling good? Getting some weekend getaways in? I hope so!
Today I am featuring a fun and frothy playlist to get you through the heat-filled days of August. It begins with THE song summer (IMHO) and ends with a Lindsey Buckingham tune that always makes me want to fall asleep on the beach somewhere under an umbrella without a care in the word.
So let’s get to it, shall we?
- Get Lucky: Daft Punk (Featuring Pharrell Williams)
Six minutes of mindless fun and a beat that is just too damn catchy. (Wish they were not being so rude to my imaginary boyfriend Stephen Colbert.)
By the way—if you have not seen the “Dublin” version of this video—please enjoy now. (Love my home girl dancing in her Sunday dress and sneakers!)
- Feeling Good: The Sheepdogs
When this song comes on at work I just want to dance all over the place.
- She Sells Sanctuary: The Cult
I have a bit of metal in me and The Cult is how I get my fix.
- Youth Without Youth: The Metric
One of my favorite bands of the last few years and love just about everything they do.
- Born on the Bayou: Creedence Clearwater Revival
This is the perfect song to do a slow, steady climb. People just groove to it. Just awesome!
- Black Tambourine: Beck
I use this song for out of the saddle sprints at varying lengths of time.
- Only: Nine Inch Nails
My big 90s crush (Trent Reznor) has a lot of hits with NIN but this one is my favorite.
- Demons: Imagine Dragons
No idea what it is about Demons that I love so much– but I do.
- Creep: TLC
VH-1 is planning a movie about TLC this fall and I plan to watch it.
- Pumped Up Kicks: Foster the People
I love the dark lyrics mixed with a poppy beat.
- Bohemian Rhapsody: Queen
Get ready to bang your heads, people!
- Everybody Talks: Neon Trees
One of those “it’s too damn fast” songs that doesn’t make me grumpy.
- Trouble: Lindsey Buckingham
Lately Lindsey Buckingham has been on Saturday Night Live as kind of a goof but he kicks ass on the guitar.
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…
