I've got to admit- I hardly own any current music. I still listen to the radio, which probably makes me old-fashioned. I do stream music to my iPhone when I'm on the go, though. I usually use Pandora.
When I excercise, I use the Pop Fitness playlist. Sometimes it gives me really weird, random, songs. But there are some great songs on there that I enjoy enough to add it to my personal, purchased music. So here are
Three Workout Songs to add to your Fitness Playlist.
1. Wake Me Up: Avicii (with uncredited singer Aloe Blacc).
This is Swedish "house" music- think clubs, parties, Dj's, etc. It's a little mellow at the beginning but once the beat comes in, this song doesn't stop. It's the perfect speed for a fast walk or a workout on equipment (I use an elliptical most of the time).
2. More: Usher
This song really makes me want to work hard. It's got a fast driving beat and of course the lyrics spur you on with motivation. I think this was used for an NBA All-Star Game. 2010? So- yeah- I feel like an All-Star. Or something.
3. Counting Stars: OneRepublic
This song makes me want to clap along, or dance, or something. It's seriously infectious, and it definitely has a great beat to keep you moving.
I'd also like to add that I don't get music videos. At. All.
So, what do you listen to when you work out? What should I add to my playlist?
