Workout Playlist #2

1) Avicii – Fade Into Darkness

The obligatory opening dance track. Don’t think about it too much. Just move to the beat.

2) Vanessa Carlton – White Houses

This song still has the trademark tinkling piano that made Vanessa Carlton famous, but incorporates a bit more drums and a faster tempo.

3) Fort Minor – Remember the Name

This is pretty much the world’s ultimate workout song. Remember: Ten percent luck, twenty percent skill, fifteen percent concentrated power of will, five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain, and a hundred percent reason to remember the name!

4) Cee-Lo Green – Satisfied

Cee-Lo’s first solo album is full of soul and his smooth, powerful vocals, and Satisfied is no exception, with the added bonus of a female backup chorus reminiscent of the Muses from the Disney animated Hercules. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you have led a very underprivileged life.)

5) Foo Fighters – Monkey Wrench

I love Foo Fighters, and Dave Grohl’s body is only one small component of my adoration.

6) The Beatles – Got to Get You Into My Life

You wouldn’t think The Beatles could be workout music, but this feel-good tune is pretty perfect for cardio.

7) Avril Lavigne – What the Hell

Oh, Avril. Ever since you burst onto the scene in 2002 with Let Go you’ve been a fixture in our lives. For better or for worse, Avril has always been there, screeching angsty lyrics into a microphone. It’s comforting to know that some things never change.

8) The Offspring – Want You Bad

Short, sweet, and to the point.

9) The Black Eyed Peas – Imma Be

I hate Fergie to death. But I can definitely get on board with BEP.

10) Sum 41 – Fat Lip

Gotta go out with a bang, and Sum 41 is perfect for that. You’ll have the words memorized in no time, and there’s pretty much nothing better for spontaneous drunken karaoke, standing on your friend’s kitchen table on New Year’s Eve.

Total playlist time: 34:56
