Brooklyn Fit Chick Playlist: “Raging Fire” Ride


“Raging Fire” 50-Minute Ride

This is a "fancy" playlist y'all!
This is a “fancy” playlist y’all!

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

Today’s playlist is a true interval ride with the pace & intensity changing every few minutes. It starts with a Philip Phillips song and ends with one of my favorite tunes in the whole wide world by Nelly Furtado. Hope it gets you motivated!


  • Raging Fire: Philip Phillips

I understand Phillip Phillips was on American Idol but I have never seen one episode of that show so to me he is just another singer who plays songs that make me say “hmmm—this might work for a warm-up tune.” And it certainly does work so there you go!


  • Are You Gonna Be My Girl: Jet

Do you remember the early iPod ads that used this song? Yeah—they were pretty cool.


  • I Gotta Feeling: The Black Eyed Peas

This one is just too damn catchy not to enjoy thoroughly.


  • Run-Around: Blues Traveler

I am old enough to admit I saw Blues Traveler live when this song came out and thought they would become huge stars. (Could still happen!)


  • Clocks: Coldplay

Some people really hate Coldplay and can’t hear one tune from them without making a face. I don’t care about those people.


  • Wake Up Call: Maroon 5

My favorite song by Maroon 5—it always puts me in a good mood!


  • Times Like These: Foo Fighters

If I added up the number of times I have paid to download the Foos….they just kick too much ass for their own good!


  • Fancy: Iggy Azalea

No idea at all why on earth this woman is so freaking popular right now but this is probably going to be the song of the summer because I hear it everywhere.


  • Firestarter: The Prodigy

I am also old enough to say I have seen The Prodigy live and they were amazing.


  • Natural One: Folk Implosion

The only reason the movie Kids meant anything to me was that they had this song on their soundtrack.


  • You Get What You Give: New Radicals

One of the best one-hit wonder tunes—ever.


  • I’m Like a Bird: Nelly Furtado

This is another case where I could have sworn she would become a huge star one day. Oh well—she will always have I’m Like a Bird.


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…

Ox Ox,

    Great playlist! I did an American Idol theme ride a few weeks ago and used Raging Fire on it. It’s such a good song for a ride or running! I’ve been using a lot of One Republic on my playlists. Something I Need is my current favorite

    I was looking for some new “workout songs” and just found this playlist which I think is great. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi and thanks for the tunes selection. Amazing how the experience is so different when you just listen as opposed to watching the videos. I think Coldplay rocks and you just can’t have any more fun than The Black Eyed Peas. One of my favorites lately for a song that gets me going is the Avicii Good Feeling as performed by Flo-Rida.
