BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST
“What I Wouldn’t Do for You” (50-minute Ride)
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…

Nice playlist can’t say I’m into working out to Katy Perry but whatever floats your boat. Great taste in music and keep up the hard work.
Thank you Gordon!
Totally my type of music. I love it!
I can’t get enough of Royals. Fantastic song and I can’t believe she’s 16!
I totally agree Courtney!!
THE POLICE – I love listening to their “old” stuff (late 70s). I think the commercialism of the 80s overshadowed exactly how good they were/are…..but they were/are.
I really love The Police!!!
ATE’s Timeless is great! Nice playlist.
I love that song!!!
