Downtown--By Putila Clark

Hey Teri, I prefer music that gets my footstompin and finger snapin. To get my adrenaline going I play Rock and Roll by Led Zeppelin and Welcome to the Jungle by Guns & Roses. Those are a few that really kick ass!

When it comes to cardio exercising nothing helps to rev up my heart rate from 70 to 128 (80 percent of my MHR) more efficiently than listening to some AC/DC Shoot To Thrill Thunderstruck or ZZ Top La Grange, Got Me Under Pressure.

 

Like a “51”, flathead, 95 horse, 6-cylinder jalopy you can’t hold the pedal to the metal forever anymore. That’s why I ease up on that pedal from hard rock to classic rock and listen to some Neil Young, Heart of Gold or Old Man to finish my routine and let my heart rate return to normal.

I tend to favor up-tempo instrumental music while exercising:

Freeway Jam - Jeff Beck

Future Primitive & Raindance - EKO

and, oddly enough, The Beastie Boys have a mostly instrumental album called The Mix Up including:

The Melee, The Rat Cage & Suco De Tangerina.

Then there's the more mainstream stuff like:

Green Onions - Booker T & The MG's

Wipeout - The Surfaris

Rebel Rouser - Duane Eddy

Frankenstein - Edgar Winter Group

Pick Up The Pieces - AWB

Popcorn - Hot Butter

I like all kinds of music.   The only genres I don't care for are heavy metal and rap/hip-hop that's vulgar.   I could listen to a little classical music when I work out.  I wouldn't say it gets me "pumping" but it tends to make me feel sensual; like I'm in Europe doing ballet.  Mostly I play rock style songs when I work out; and that gets me going.   

 

One song in particular that I can think of right now that gets me going is:

"Single Orphan First Year Camel" by Loop Guru

There are no real words to that song, but it's the beat that gets me going.  Give a listen sometime!  It starts off soft in the beginning but it really gets going.

 

Another one is:  "Amidinine" by Bombino.   Hearing anything by Bombino can really get you going.   I think he hails out of the Saharan Desert.

Two songs that will stop me in my tracks and

break into dancing no matter what I’m doing:

 

Eight days a week, Beatles

Gypsy, Fleetwood Mac

Get Back - The Beatles

 

Was working out the other day listening to The Beatles rooftop concert. This one will get the blood pumping!

I’ll second that “Get Back” documentary as a must see. Matter of fact I’ve seen it twice, 16 hours’ worth and I’m praying for a snow day so I can binge another 8 hours of it. They had 3 takes of the song “Get Back” on the rooftop and put one of them on the album. The movie gives you all 3 versions.

Hoping for a Get Back DVD at some point.
