Work It OUT!

I was tooling around on one of my friend Erin's blogs, "Thirty for Thirty", and found myself over-commenting on one her posts about great work out play lists... so, what else can a girl do but post her own list of work out hits?

Some people prefer the TV, or a book/magazine even if on an easier stride, but when I'm workin' up a sweat, I must, must have music.

If I'm feeling whole albumy, I like to go with The Stones Exile on Main Street. Mmmmhmmm. It's dirty and blood pumping and kinda makes you want to shake your ass, so you might as well burn some extra calories while your at it.

I also like whole artist listens like Madonna, Spoon and Beck (except for Sea Changes as you might lose all motivation and decide to cry instead).

As far as a good list of pump me up hits, these are fun:

*Metric – “Help, I’m Alive”
*Santogold – “Creator”
*Animal Collective – “My girls”, “summertime Clothes”, “Fireworks” are great warm ups.
*Great Northern – ‘Houses”, “Story”
*MGMT – “Kids”
Phoenix –  “Lisztomania” and “1901″

Like you I need music to work out. But the music I need embarrasses me greatly. My 80+ songs work out playlist is nothing but the cheesiest, lamest pop music there is. We're talking Black Eyed Peas, Britney, JT, etc. It's sad but it gets my butt in gear.
