Singalong Saturday, June 11th

The lovely Shan wanted to know what I listened to when working out....and it was high time I did a singalong post.... So let me talk you through one of my workout mixes (there are several!).

1. Lose My Breath - Destiny's Child



Just looking at the moves they throw in the video makes me want to move!

2. We R Who We R - Ke$ha

(caution - this video contains Ke$ha)



Yes. I know. Ke$ha. So help me, she makes me feel the burn when I'm working out. This song is also killer for spinning classes!

3. Raise Your Glass - P!nk

(caution - swears and oddness)


The more astute of you will have gathered that Pink is my jam when it comes to working out. This would be true.

4. No Cars Go - Arcade Fire

There's something about that driving drum beat that keeps me going.

5. Falling For The First Time - Barenaked Ladies

There's always time for Canadian alt-pop.

6. Saturday Superhouse - Biffy Clyro



Ditto Scot-rock.

7. Stronger - Britney Spears



This one always makes me giggle when I'm weight training. I feel like I should be pumping serious iron, not prancing around with my 1 / 1.5 kilo arm weights!

8. When Love Takes Over - David Guetta & Kelly Rowland



Oooh! Dancey!

9. The Pretender - Foo Fighters



If Dave Grohl doesn't motivate me, very few things will ;)

10. Celebrity Skin - Courtney Love



Great beat, clever lyrics, and always reminds me of my mis-spent youth in the Mudd Club in Aberdeen. When I was much skinnier!

11. Dirrrty Girl Mash up - Christina Aguilera and Jet

Amazing mash up. Great cross-trainer rhythm. Can't find anywhere on youtube!

12. S.O.S. (Let The Music Play) - Jordin Sparks



Cheeeeese!

13. Since U Been Gone - Kelly Clarkson



Yeah, two AI alums in a row. I have mad cheese selecting skillz. Love this video too.

14. Can't Find The Moonlight (remix) - LeAnn Rimes

Coyote Ugly. Filmic genius.

I'm quite serious.

15. Bad - Michael Jackson



This has the added workout bonus that the first line (Your butt is mine) makes me giggle like a schoolboy. Extra-ab-workout-high-five!

16. Supermassive Black Hole - Muse



Adding some more rock to the mix. This always makes me feel like I should be strutting down a catwalk somewhere...bonus.

17. Up - The Saturdays

Dancey Brit pop cheese, which always reminds me of Lloret Del Mar with Katie Boo. Good times.

18. Number 1 - Tinchy Strider feat N-Dubz

Oh my goodness. It's like all my musical taste abandons me the moment I enter a gym...

19. Heads Will Roll (A-Trak remix) - Yeah Yeah Yeahs



Slightly more credible note to finish.

So, be honest....does anyone else embrace the cheese for work outs?

  1. Great playlist - I'm pretty sure cheese is mandatory for workouts.

  2. I do a lot of cheese for workout mixes. I worry that it might damage my indie cred.

    Kesha, and P!nk are big on my workout lists. However, I do like a lot of Hole and Foo Fighters too.

    Happy exercising!

  3. Excellent playlist. I also *adore* celebrity skin and have found for many years the line "when I wake up, in my make up, it's too early for that dress" to almost be something I have inadvertently lived by. Ooops

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
