BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST
“Ventura Highway” 50-Minute Ride
Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
This week’s playlist is a mixture of old and new styles of music for a 50-minute cardio workout that works well for indoor cycling, outdoor running and the elliptical. The pace is a mixture of easy resistance and a fast cadence to slower climbs requiring more muscle endurance.
Be sure to keep hydrated while you workout and as always—send me your favorite song suggestions!
- Venture Highway (Deepsky’s Blizzard in L.A. Remix): America
I have used this song as a warm-up before and it always makes me feel happy. The mixture of dreamy orchestration mixed with the 70s hit makes me want to wear a poncho and stare at the stars at night.
- Anything, Anything: Dramarama
OMG—I freaking love this song from the early 80s. The band broke up in 1994 but got back together after appearing in VH-1’s Bands Reunited.
- Rumble and Sway: Jamie N Commons
This cute British boy is just 25 years old but rocks like an old blues artist.
- Supersoaker: Kings of Leon
This song always makes me want to run faster and work harder. Perfect for sprints or running intervals.
- Once in a Lifetime: Talking Heads
By far my favorite version of one of the best tunes of all freaking time!
- Tongue Tied: Group Love
If you need something fun and poppy after a big mean climb.
- I am One: Smashing Pumpkins
My inner 90s warrior chick luvs this band and this song in particular.
- Blow Me One Last Kiss: P!nk
I think I have a problem when it comes to P!nk because if I do not hear her every single day—my world seems boring.
- Tusk: Fleetwood Mac
Fleetwood Mac released a double album after their smash Rumors called Tusk and it contains exactly two decent songs on it. Can you guess the other one?
- Bodysnatchers: Radiohead
This is a little gem from their In Rainbows CD you were allowed to pay whatever you wanted for it at the time.
- Use Me (Live): Hootie & The Blowfish
Yes, I picked a Hootie song because this cover of Bill Withers’ hit kicks serious ass!
- Love Runs Out: OneRepublic
Not sure why they do not have a space between “One” and “Republic” but I do like this tune.
- That’s the Way: Led Zeppelin
The “Gods of Thunder” could write pretty ballads and this one always puts me in a good mood.
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 watched a OneRepublic concert recently on Yahoo Live Nation. I’m not even a huge fan of theirs but I thought they were pretty freakin’ amazing in concert and put on a great show. I would definitely consider seeing them if they came close to where I live.
I have to say their video has me intrigued to hear them live.
Thanks for the playlist-ohh-mania. Good stuff!
Thanks for more music…:) Again, some I have not heard and some familiar
