I have not updated my workout play list in a year and a half and I was ready for a little something new. I scoured the Internet for recommendations and included songs that I have liked on the radio lately.
I looked for upbeat songs and/or songs that made me happy. Here is what I have thrown into the mix:
Killing Me Softly With His Song Fugees
Me and Bobby McGee Janis Joplin
Domino Jesse J
That’s Right (You’re Not from Texas) Lyle Lovett
Harder to Breathe Maroon 5
Party in the U.S.A. Miley Cyrus
Fat Bottomed Girls Phillip Phillips
Can’t Stop The Rd Hot Chili Peppers
Runnin Down a Dream Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Lonely Boy The Black Keys
Crazy in Love Beyonce
Shame on You Indigo Girls
Good Girl Carrie Underwood
What Makes You Beautiful One Direction
Rumor Has It Adele
Waka Waka Shakira
Cal Me Maybe Carly Rae Jepsen
Roxanne– Juliet Simms
I’ve gone through the mix a couple of times and I’m enjoying it. Shakira’s Waka Waka is really fun and I was surprised how great the Tom Petty song made me feel- I’ve listed to him for years but never considered adding it to my running playlist. My favorite of the moment though is Rhiana. Her music is so versatile and the song SOS made me stop mid-run and dance and THAT is a fun way to start the day!
Do you have any new songs that I could add to the list?
