Usually, when I’m running, I listen to Pandora and just select a radio station that I think will motivate me for the next 45 minutes. Pit Bull Radio is a favorite and recently it’s been Workout Radio. However happy and upbeat, or pumped up the song is, it’s rare that one will really get me excited about it.
Ergo…I’ve started back into the crazy world of making playlists. Considering I have just about no music on my iTunes (I lost all 5500 songs when my college computer died), I’ve been trying to be selective on which songs I actually download.
I made this playlist while looking for some motivating throwbacks. Songs that you don’t really hear on the radio today and songs that bring me back to training on teams in high school and college.
Flashdance…What a Feeling: Irene Cara
Magic: B.o. B. (feat. Rivers Cuomo)
Gonna Make you Sweat: C + C Music Factory
All for You: Kate Ryan
I Wanna Dance With Somebody: Whitney Houston
Walking on Sunshine: Katrina and the Waves
Walking on Broken Glass: Annie Lennox
Hit Me WIth Your Best Shot: Pat Benatar
Let’s Hear it For the Boy: Deniece Williams
Call On Me: Eric Prydz
Heaven is a Place on Earth: Belinda Carlisle
Brent…thought this also made a great 5AM road trip playlist, so guess what we jammed to on our trip out to Michigan?! After that interesting car ride, I’m going to change it to an after 8AM playlist because I need my coffee before I listen to Brent belting out What a Feeling. It was a very enthusiastic rendition.
Barracuda, in this play list, was a great decision. I was just about sprinting when that song came on.
What is your favorite workout song??
