BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST
“Superlove 2016” Playlist (50 Minute-Ride)
Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
I am a loyal Avicii fan and am so sad I will most likely never had the chance to see him live as my Swedish heartthrob is retiring at the ripe old age of 26-years old. (Wahhhh!)
So I wanted to include his music in one more playlist this year to celebrate his magical producing abilities. You’re welcome!
The rest of this list is my usual mix of old and new (filled with tons of 90s tunes, of course.) Let me know what you think and please leave some song suggestions in the comments below or on Twitter @BrooklynFitChik. Now load up that smartphone and get to working out!
- Superlove: Avicii with Lenny Kravitz
This song is almost THE perfect warm-up for an indoor cycling class in like, ever. It has this great beat that has a European vibe and then the drums kick in and BAM! The pace quickens and you peddle like mad. Then it gets kind of quiet and Lenny Kravitz’ voice takes over. Trust me—this is a dope jam.
- Are You Gonna be My Girl: JET
How is it possible this song is actually 13-years old? (Makes me wistful for 2003…)
- California Love: 2Pac
My favorite thing about using this song is the expression on people’s faces while it plays. California Love is a uniter not a divider!
- Supersoaker: Kings of Leon
I love this one for sprints out of the saddle in 30, 20 and 10 second intervals in case you are wondering what to do with it.
- On the Road Again: Canned Heat
This is my first “climb” song for the ride and I love how trippy it sounds over the speakers. The beat is consistent and motivating as well. Don’t be afraid to try it out on your students!
- Supermassive Black Hole: Muse
The singer, Matt Bellamy, rocks out with a cool falsetto in this number I remember from the Twilight movie (don’t judge!)
- Let me Entertain You: Robbie Williams
If you are not familiar with the awesomeness of Robbie Williams—start with this song. He kills it live, by the way.
- My Moon My Man: Feist
I use this for “out of the saddle” climbs and the best part is the past part of the song which ends with a weird “walk off.” (Download it and you will see what I mean!)
- Gold, Girls, Guns: Metric
As the biggest fan of Metric in the U.S. I will keep including them in playlists until they take off around the world.
- It’s All Been Done: Barenaked Ladies
This band achieves a neat trick—they are in real life hilarious and great as a band. Only The Monkees do it better.
- Stupid Girl: Garbage
Shirley Manson is one of my favorite singers of all time and this tune in particular rocks my socks off.
- The Impression That I Get: The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
I always time for this loud and raucous song that screams 90s.
- Baby, I Love Your Way: Peter Frampton
It’s summer when I am writing up this playlist and nothing says “sum-ah” more to me than listening to some Frampton. Enjoy!
That’s it for me this time. What are your new favorite tunes to check out!
Until next time…

I’ve been running to California Love lately–every since I ran Big Sur! It evokes some great memories of that trip! You always have some really great selections on your playlists. Have you heard Kiss This by the Struts? That’s a really fun high energy song I’ve been running to as well!
I do like that Struts song but can’t figure out how to use it in my classes. California Love is the BEST!
Well I definitely need to check out this playlist since there is so much music that I haven’t heard of! I keep listening to the same old tired stuff, lol!
Me too! I have to work hard to find new tunes.
Another awesome playlist. I saw Avicii when he was at The Barclays last summer – amazing!
I am jealous you saw him!
I have a tendency to listen to the same things over and over- I need to branch out and shake it up!
I always need to shake things up. Its hard NOT to get into a rut
All great songs, and some of my regulars in there too! I saw Peter Frampton in concert a couple of years ago…one of the best I’ve ever seen. Go, if you haven’t already!!
I love Peter Frampton and saw him live a few years ago. SUCH a great show!
Lots of these are new to me but I do love that Jett song. Thanks for the song ideas
Sure thing! Love that Jet song too!
Canned Heat! Wow does that bring back memories. Great list!
Thank you Elle!
I’m currently listening to We Don’t Talk Anymore for my long slow run.
Thanks for throwing some Frampton in there so I didn’t feel totally out of the loop :-). Fun play list. When I’m not at work I’ll listen to the ones I don’t know (most of them – lol).
Cool, let me know what you think!
Such great picks, especially California Love!
I would probably know many of these songs if I heard them, but the only one I recognize is California Love! Will be checking out more of these though.
I LOVE music when I’m out on the road in my running shoes! Thanks for sharing 😉
I’ve been using my current playlist for awhile now and need to switch things up. Thanks for the suggestions!
Great music and haven’t heard the California Love song in forever! So fun!!
