BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST
“Unbelievers Ride” (50-minute Ride)
Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
This week’s playlist features a variety of beats and genres that will get your heart pumping and help motivate you to work harder, run faster and spin a little longer. (Or just get out of your own head and get your butt moving!)
Do me a favor? Let me know what you think and please tell me what is on your workout playlist these days.
- Unbelievers: Vampire Weekend
I don’t always agree with rock critics on what I “should” love but this is one of those rare Brooklyn bands that are actually as good as their press indicates. (Is that throwing shade? I don’t mean to!)
- Let’s Fall in Love: Mother Mother
This comes from a Canadian group that I am rather fond of and think should get famous here in the States right away. (The video is a little disturbing to some people so be warned there is a message about gender violence going on.)
- My Body: Young the Giant
I admit to not being too familiar with Young the Giant but I love this song and think it sounds great when played really loud during class.
- Locked out of Heaven: Bruno Mars
Whenever I play this in class my students start to bop their heads to the beat. It’s so damn adorable.
- Weapon of Choice: Fatboy Slim
A good song that has the MOST amazing video ever attached to it as well—big win for all!
- Butterfly: Crazy Town
I feel terrible the lead singer Shifty Shellshock has had his troubles (and especially having them exploited by the fame vampire Dr. Drew) and I hope he gets another chance to come up with a cool single.
- Synthetica: Metric
One of my favorite bands is almost always on my playlists. Because they rock so damn hard!
- Walk Away: James Gang
It is absolutely worth going to see The Eagles because you have the chance to hear a cool Joe Walsh tune or two. (Like this one!)
- Music: Madonna
I always thought this video was trashy (even with a hilarious Sacha Baron Cohen playing da Ali G.) but I still dig doing sprints to this one from Madonna.
- Crabbuckit: K-Os
This is just a really fun song, that’s it.
- Seven Nation Army: The White Stripes
Jack White is one nutty dude but I am starting to find him attractive. Hmm…
- Stronger: Kanye West
Okay, yes—this guy has an ego the size of New Jersey and is childish. But he has some good grooves in him and this song makes me want to work out harder.
- Wish You Were Here: Radiohead
One of my favorite songs of all time and this cover is pretty damn terrific.
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…

I still get excited when I hear 7 Nation Army.
