1) Amy Winehouse – Rehab 3:42
If only this woman had treated us to more of her raspy, soulful tones before her untimely demise.
2) Jimmy Eat World – Sweetness 3:40
This whole album is a fireworks show of beautiful harmonies and twangy guitar.
3) The Beatles – Ob-La-Di Ob-la-Da 3:12
So upbeat, so flippant, perhaps even a little bit cheeky.
4) Barenaked Ladies – One Week 2:55
Use this playlist enough times, and you’ll finally have these words memorized.
5) Guster – Bury Me 2:37
Why don’t more artists use bongos?
6) Lights – Toes 3:31
A lot of Lights’ stuff is a little bit too ethereal for a workout, but this one has just enough pep to jog to.
You know if a band has a song in an Absolut vodka commercial, their music is cool.
8) Sick Puppies – You’re Going Down 3:06
I don’t usually work out to anything quite this murder-y, but… you know. Shit happens.
9) Shinedown – Unity 4:08
If Nickelback didn’t suck a nut, this is what they’d sound like.
Obviously FOB can’t just name a song Light ‘Em Up. Because that would make it way too easy to remember.
Total playlist time: 33:24
