"Little Red Corvette"  is my all-time fav workout song... great warm-up then MOVE! 😉

 

But I'll always work out with AARP Videos featuring Bryant Johnson and April Hattori (and Mom).

 

These have been my fitness routine during pandemic and I think they're one of the most important resources we have at AARP!

 

Thanks for providing them, AARP!

I love classic hard rock, metal and 70s and 80s pop. My favorite artist ever is the legendary Alice Cooper who is still putting out great albums and touring up to 200 days a year. The Coop is frequently on playlist and a lot of 80s hair bands.

Any Nightwish album or playlist works for me.

I love Nightwish! One of my favorite bands.

These are a few: 

Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run

Jackson Browne - Running On Empty

CCR - Run Through the Jungle

I had my playlist sort of timed out so "Right Back Where We Started From" by Maxine Nightingale played for the last part of my running route. That thumping beat helped me pour on the coals for the final stretch, and get me right back to the park...where I started from.

 

Plus, disco music sort of justified the white polyester suit I used to wear while running.

Break on through, L.A. Woman, Roadhouse Blues - The Doors, are the ones i start my workout with then followed by what's on Sirius Xm's -The Boneyard.

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!

Hope You Can Outrun That Freight Train by the Railroad Rebels gets me going!

My favorite workout music 🎶, We are 1 …,,,, by Blackcoffee

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.

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.
