so i've recently started going to the gym again. and if you know me at all, you know that my life basically has a soundtrack; i listen to music nearly all of my waking hours (car, work, car, on the computer at home, in the bathtub, laying in bed) now add "while working out" to that list. again, if you know me at all, you know i'm picky about some things. music nears the top of that list along with shoes and food.
lists i've found online of "great workout playlists" have largely been crap. don't waste your time listening to the "fitness & workout" section of iTunes store. it made me want to beat my head on the desk.
i am looking for songs that pretty much make me feel like a bada$$. hard rock like disturbed usually goes a little too far or the bpm is too slow, r&b/hip hop annoys me with the apparent inability to pronounce regular words correctly, techno oftentimes isn't gritty enough.... and i kind of like music that celebrates being a strong woman (but kelly clarkson music makes me want to light my hair on fire).
am i asking too much? probably.
here's a taste of my current lifting/workout list:
boys wanna be her - peaches
pacha on acid - afrojack
moombah - afrojack remix
we got the beat - go-go's
cowboy - kid rock (do NOT judge me)
natural's not in it - gang of four
i'm not okay - my chemical romance
the truth - seether
run the world (girls) - beyonce
ok, friends and neighbors, help me out here. if i listen to this music much more i might throw a dumbbell at the next meat head i notice "glancing" at me. (has anyone else ever noticed that people do a lot of glancing when they should be lifting?)
