Workout Playlist #39

1) Weezer – (If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To 

This sexually-liberated anthem from nerd heroes Weezer is peppered with a twanging guitar line.

2) Eddie Money – Two Tickets to Paradise 

For your very own 80’s workout montage.

3) Foreigner – Hot Blooded 

I want to dance on a table à la Kat in 10 Things I Hate About You to this song.

4) Chuck Berry – Johnny B. Goode 

You can’t stay sitting when you hear that infectious intro.

5) Michael Jackson – Billie Jean 

Bvv tss kk tsss bvv tss kk tsss.

6) Heart – Crazy On You 

This single made Ann Wilson’s voice famous in the USA.

7) The Rolling Stones – Satisfaction 

The sound that influenced 50 years of rock music.

8) Green Day – Minority 

The upbeat swing sets this number apart from the rest of Green Day’s work.

9) Led Zeppelin – Rock and Roll 

Worth a listen for the drums alone, which are sure to push you over that end-of-workout hump. Also, does anyone else think this and Boston’s “Smokin'” would make a great mashup?

10) Hawthorne Heights – Ohio is for Lovers 

Nostalgia factor: Infinity.

Total playlist time: 38:49
