BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST
Hey there! Hi there! How there!
This week I present my newest playlist which features a “climb” with one of my favorite songs of all time by Siouxsie & The Banshees and ends with an 80s pop gem. Intrigued? Well then, let’s get to it!
- If So: Atlas Genius
If you are not familiar with Atlas Genius—they are an Australian pop rock band and they write some catchy tunes. Check them out!
- Ch Ch Ch Check it Out: Beastie Boys
- The Wasp: The Doors
This is my number one favorite Doors song and I actually took a picture of Jim Morrison’s notebook at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame because it allegedly contained the original lyrics.
- Kiss Them for Me: Siouxsie & The Banshees
I am reminded of my San Jose State days when I hear this tune. If you will allow me to indulge—I have a couple of videos for it. Let me know what you think!
- Elephant: Tame Impala
Tame Impala is pretty big back in their native Perth, Australia. (Another Aussie band!)
- Sweet Disposition : The Temper Trap
One of my students absolutely LOVES Sweet Disposition so I made sure to include it on my list this week.
- Close to Me: The Cure
Who doesn’t love Robert Smith? This song puts me into such a great mood.
- Level: The Raconteurs
My friend Jennifer is the biggest Jack White alive and has travelled to several continents to see him play live. She is super cool in my book.
- The Pit: Silversun Pickups
This song is fantastic for sprints and quick intervals.
- Ridin: Chamillionaire & Krayzie Bone
“They see me rollin’—they hatin’….”
- How You Like Me Now: The Heavy
No this is not a James Brown tune but it could have been!
- I Just Can’t Get Enough: Nouvelle Vague
Why aren’t there more Portuguese bands singing bassa nova versions of New Wave songs?
- I Can’t Go For That: Hall & Oates
Take the time to really listen to this song because it is wicked awesome.
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…

I love your playlists! Speaking of Atlas Genius, they’re headling the Rock N Roll races in Providence this Sunday. I’m running in the “mini marathon” so I’ll probably hang around to see them. I mean, it’s free to see the bands after all…
ooh have fun! I would love to see them play live. Good luck with your mini marathon!
Dude, we have super similar taste in music, and seeing Beastie Boys + Siouxsie & The Banshees + Tame Impala + Hall & Oates all on one playlist is making my DAAAY. Anywhere a girl could snag this playlist from the internet in its entirety? Would be great to run/bike/etc to!
Hey Claire! You made my day! I wish I could figure out a way to put this playlist online. I know they are all available on iTunes. Thanks for the feedback!
All Hall & Oates songs are wicked awesome! They are still on my regular playlist. And still rock!
I totally agree Missy!
This is a great playlist. I have been looking to change music for workouts and this is awesome.
Thank you so much!
