The “Ting Ting’s Playlist” Featuring Rihanna, Foos, Alabama Shakes, P!nk & More


Spring 2015 Ting-Tings Ride (50 Minutes)

The Ting Tings
The Ting Tings

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

Today I want to start off with a song that every once in a while becomes an earworm in my brain. It’s just so damn catchy and fun that I can’t think of a reason to NOT play it.

This is sort of an update of an older playlist of mine that I decided to move around and a few new songs you may not have heard yet. Enjoy!

  • That’s Not My Name: The Ting Tings

This is one of my favorite warm-up tunes of all time because That’s Not My Name has such a great hook and the energy just builds to an awesome level. Perfection!


  • Pon de Replay: Rhianna

This is the first single from Barbadian singer Rihanna and the title means “play it again: in Bajan Creole (according to Wikipedia!)


  • Fixed to Ruin: Sam Roberts

Sam Roberts has been very popular in Canada and I am doing everything possible to increase his audience in the U.S. One spin class at a time. (You’re welcome Sam!)


  • Congregation: Foo Fighters

Everyone who knows me understands that I have a hard time NOT putting some Foos into my playlists because they rock too freakin’ much!


  • Zombie: The Cranberries

The Cranberries brings out my (not so) inner “Irish Badass” to the fore.


  • Blow Me One Last Kiss: P!nk

I love singing along to this song but for the life of me cannot reach that super HIGH note in the chorus.


  • Bodysnacthers: Radiohead

This live version is dedicated to my friend Christine at Dubya Wife because she is a big fan of Radiohead (and completely awesome.)


  • Don’t Wanna Fight: Alabama Shakes

Alabama Shakes is from Athens, Georgia and they feature a lead singer and guitarist Brittany Howard who is just a lightning bolt of charisma and talent. LOVE!


  • It’s All Been Done: Barenaked Ladies

Funny Canadians signing catchy music brings out the “happy” in me.


  • The Passenger: Iggy Pop

“Singing La La La La La La La!” (Don’t mind me while I dance around my apartment right now…)


  • Pumpin Blood: NONONO

I love this tune from the Swedish trio NONONO because it is a huge bucket of fun.


  • Fearless: Pink Floyd

This is one of my favorite songs of off their Meddle album. Download it now!


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,

    I used to love that Ting Tings song! What happened to them? Pon de Replay was one of my go to songs in cycle class. I will need to put them back into the mix

    I always include a Pink song on my playlists. I don’t think they’re ever complete without including her!

    My fav song here is Blow Me by Pink, but as a fellow #islandgirl, I have to give Rihanna an honourable mention haha
