My Workout Songs Playlist

July 22, 2010


I tweeted that a couple hours ago, right after hearing “Use Somebody” by Kings of Leon, “Tom Sawyer” by Rush, and two Who songs in a row — “Eminence Front” and “Baba O’Riley.” Awesome.

It led to some fun conversations with others on Twitter about workout songs; Blake Thompson asked me to post my playlist, so now that I’ve figured out how to export from iTunes, why not? Earlier this year, I posted 8 Great Workout Songs, but here’s the full list of 50+ songs that accompany me to the gym, in alphabetical order by artist.

So yeah. A mix of ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, and more current songs. Mostly rock, but a few slower songs too (Hothouse Flowers, REM, the Pearl Jam song, etc. Good times. Sure makes 45 minutes on a treadmill much more enjoyable.
