I've mentioned before that a good playlist is KEY to getting me through a workout. The last couple weeks I've been getting pretty bored of my music, and even when I add any new songs, the excitement wears off quickly as I listen to them repeatedly just for a change in musical scenery. Yup, 4 hours of daily exercise will do that!
In the meantime, I thought I'd share some of my "Power Songs" - the ones that get me revved up, no fail, every single time. Heck, maybe you'll find something to help spice up your own collection :) Yes, I'm a pretty mainstream kind of gal, so for all you hipster/alternative people.... don't judge!
Avril Lavigne - Smile, What the Hell
Britney Spears - Til the World Ends (current #1)
Chris Brown - Yeah 3x
Katy Perry - Firework, E.T.
Kelly Clarkson - My Life Would Suck Without You
Linkin Park - Breaking the Habit (all-time favourite!), Catalyst, Bleed It Out, Waiting For the End, Blackout, In Pieces
Lady Gaga - Highway Unicorn, Edge of Glory
The Saturdays - One Shot, Wordshaker, Work
Cobra Starship - You Make Me Feel
My Chemical Romance - Sing, Black Parade, The Sharpest Lives
Kelly Rowland - Commander
Usher - More
Rage Against the Machine - Killing In the Name, Testify
Korn - Get Up
Nightwish - Bye Bye Beautiful, Master Passion Greed, Amaranth, 7 Days To the Wolves
Nicki Minaj - Super Bass
Of course, there's a whole other playlist to help me unwind after I've gotten myself pumped up. But that's for another day and another post ;)
