The Perfect Workout Playlist

Since I started exercising again, I’ve become one of the people I despise most because I:

(a) go jogging
(b) jog in such a way that it’s actually slower than walking

As one such despicable person, I can tell you that music matters. I have to find songs slow enough to keep rhythm to (I was in marching band for four years, it’s pretty much impossible not to set pace to the beat) while at the same time fast enough to add a skip of inspiration to my overly-labored hippopotamus steps.

I’ve managed by trial and error to create the perfect slow-jog playlist, but I’m getting a little tired of the same old songs. Here’s my list:

  • Sia – The Greatest
  • Sia – Cheap Thrills
  • Black Eyed Peas – The Boogie That Be
  • ELO – Hold on Tight
  • Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now
  • Lady Gaga – Born This Way
  • Lady Gaga – You And I
  • Pitbull – Fun
  • CeeLoo Green – Bright Lights Bigger City
  • Santigold – Creator
  • Santigold – LES Artistes

What are your favorites I can add???
