Music Monday: Workout mix

In an effort to get back on track about working out every day, I want to start talking more about it, in every aspect. One of my favorite things about running/walking by myself is that I get to listen to music. Upbeat, shake your ass, dance like an idiot kind of music. No matter how ridiculous, if it has a beat that keeps time to my stride, I’ll put it on the playlist. So far, I have 50 songs on my workout playlist, but I keep adding new ones whenever I hear something that appeals to me.

Here are 10 of my favorites:

Baby – Justin Bieber (Seriously, don’t judge, because this song is goddamn catchy.)

Dog Days Are Over – Florence + The Machine (For some reason my arms want to punch the air when this song is on.)

Float On – Modest Mouse (“Even if things end up a bit too heavy we’ll all float on all RIGHT!”)

Forever – Chris Brown (Yeah, I hate this asshole too, but I can’t deny the fact that this one particular song is kind of bad ass.)

Jenny from the Block – Jennifer Lopez (When this is on, I imagine J-Lo’s hot body as inspiration.)

Love On Top – Beyonce (See J-Lo.)

Ray Charles – Chiddy Bang (This is a new one, and I just can’t help myself; it’s the band that really does it for me.)

Take Your Mama – Scissor Sisters (“Do it! Take your mama out all night!”)

Under Cover of Darkness – The Strokes (I could put this one on repeat. Over and over and over. And over.)

What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger) – Kelly Clarkson (If this isn’t a fantastic workout song, I don’t know what is.)
