BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST
“Whole Lotta Love” (50-minute Ride)
Hey there! Hi there! How there!
Are you ready to rock? Do you need some power music to crank up your enthusiasm? Well then today’s list is for you. If nothing else, take the first track listed below and crank it up to 11 and go kick some ass out there!
- Whole Lotta Love: Led Zeppelin
This is one of those songs that whenever I start a class with it more than one person will shout out “yes!” The mighty Zep will get your butt in gear.
- Leopard Print Pill-Box Hot: Beck
Beck redid a Bob Dylan for a charity album and managed to make it even better than the original.
- Radio Song: R.E.M.
OMG—I miss this band!
- Can You Read My Mind: The Killers
My absolute favorite song from The Killers—it put me in the best mood whenever I hear it.
- Bit by Bit: Mother Mother
Once again I am falling in love with an Indie Canadian rock band. This song kills when played at full volume!
- Diamonds : Rhianna
“Shine bright like a diamond!”
- Paralyzer: Finger Eleven
Do you know the origin of the band name (giggling like a 12 year-old right now…)
- Came Bach Haunted: Nine Inch Nails
One of the best bands I have ever seen live—ever!
- Empire State of Mind: Jay-Z & Alicia Keys
- Ragdoll: Aerosmith
I think this is my favorite of the late 80s Aerosmith (hated the power ballads!)
- Bohemian Like You: The Dandy Warhols
If you are not familiar with this band check out the 2004 film Dig—one of the best music documentaries I have ever seen.
- Rock Steady: Frank Turner
One of my students recently asked “who is Aretha Franklin?” I made them download this song first.
- Year of the Cat: Al Stewart
I love the light piano music in the beginning the then the build to big guitars.
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…

Another solid list! Nine Inch Nails will ALWAYS be my favorite band to see live. I saw them for the third time not quite 2 weeks ago and Trent still blows my mind. Amazing 2 hour set!
Thanks Courtney! They are a favorite of mine too! Trent is an amazing performer.
Thanks from the post…like the cool down track!
All superb choices.
