BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST
“Wake Me Up” (50-minute Ride)
Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
My playlist this week features a mixture of new tunes and few classic gems for a true interval ride. The energy level goes up and down so it is perfect for Tabata and sprint drills. Enjoy!
- Wake Me Up: Avicii
This Swedish DJ’s real name is Tim Bergling and he has possibly the most gorgeous face I have ever seen on a man or woman. Just look at those blue eyes and high cheekbones…sorry, what were we talking about?
- Pompeii: Bastille
Quoting directly from Wikipedia here: “Lyrically, the song is inspired by the Roman town known by the same name, which met its fate with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.”
- All the Small Things: blink-182
The one and only blink-182 song I know. Love it.
- Dancing With Myself: Billy Idol
I think Billy Idol is one of the sexiest rock & roll singers of all time and this song has long been a “dancing around my bedroom like a fool” staple in my life.
- Sunday Morning: k-os
A really fun tune for running sprints.
- Apparitions: Matthew Good Band
For the first “climb” in this set I like this one from the Matthew Good Band.
- Dog Days Are Over: Florence & the Machine
This was one of my favorite songs from her first album and is perfect for when you want your class to work harder and give more energy.
- My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark: Fall Out Boy
Kind of, sort of THE perfect workout tune which makes everyone helpless against its charms.
- Love Interruption: Jack White
I have a thing for pasty white guys who croon for love.
- Do What U Want: Lady Gaga (with R. Kelly)
Gaga was just so damn charming on the Howard Stern Show that she can do no wrong in my eyes.
- The Perfect Life: Moby (featuring Wayne Coyne)
I am not sure if everyone is aware of this but MOBY HAS A NEW SONG YOU NEED TO CHECK OUT NOW!
- Pump It: The Black Eyed Peas
If you want to get a group to move hard just one last time, this is what you need to play for them.
- XO: Beyoncé
This is my absolute favorite song on her new album.
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…

Le sigh. Yet another epic list. Love Interruption is one of my absolutely favorite songs by Jack White, solo or otherwise. The guy is a musical genius.
Great mix BFC! The FOB track is a favorite for Sprints…Lady G track for hill work.
Thanks for sharing (stay warm…cold weather coming from the West!).
You never let me down for a fun, eclectic mix of music. My favorite!
Very eclectic playlist. I saw Moby in concert many, many moons ago when he opened for BUSH. Of course that was a little after he had a song with Gavin’s wife, Gwen Stefani. Poor guy got booed….Bush fans weren’t exactly there to hear the offerings of Moby.
Oh poor Moby!!!
