Workout Play Lists

As I was having my ass kicked by my Concept-2 today I started thinking about the music I choose to work out to, and then I wondered what sort of workout music the other kids prefer.  When I first started listening to music while working out we were pretty much limited to one album in the 8-track player at a time, so there wasn’t a lot of variety in a session.  For those of you too young to know, an “8-track” was what we called MP3 players when I was your age.

Anyway, in the spirit of discussing all things even remotely related to skiing, here’s one of my typical workout play lists – it’s medium-high energy and just about what you would expect from someone old enough to have owned many 8-tracks (my Ipod is a first-generation mini, if that says anything):

>in no particular order<

Further On Up The Road  - Eric Clapton (live)
Mama told Me Not To Come – Tom Jones & The Sterophonics
Whammer Jammer/Hard Driving Man – J. Geils Band
Devil With the Blue Dress – Wilson Pickett
Walking in Memphis – Lonestar
Turn Me On – Kevin Little
Blinded By The Light – REO Speedwagon
Shambala – Three Dog night
Jukebox Hero – Bad Company
We Get Around – Urthboy
Rock and Roll Star (acoustic) – Oasis
Stay With Me – Rod Stewart
Brother Loves Traveling Salvation Show – Neal Diamond
Back In The High Life – Steve Winwood
Tubthumping – Chumbawamba
Devil Went Down to Georgia – Charlie Daniels Band
American Band – Grand Funk Railroad
Going Down For The Last Time – Head East
Gimme Three Steps – Lynyrd Skynyrd
Walk This Way – Aerosmith
A Life of Illusion – Joe Walsh
Superfreak – Rick James
Rockaria – ELO

Eclectic and mostly old school for sure, but it works for me.

Anybody else wanna play...?

Re: Workout Play Lists

I'm more a fan of listening to albums than turning on random.
So here is what or who will be playing when I get down to it.

Joe Satriani
John Petrucci
Eric Johnson
Paul Gilbert
King Crimson
Queen: usually Queen I or Sheer Heart Attack
Iron Maiden: usually Number of the Beast or Peace of Mind
Richard Wagner (symphonies make for interesting pacing while doing cardio)

I have a nasty habit of paying more attention to the music than the workout, so more often than not I nix the music: particularly when technique is important. It's way to much, "Get off my lawn!" for my not particularly advanced age, but I just have to deal with being a young old codger.

+1 for not breaking up albums, Satch, JP, and Queen. Excellent choices! I am not a fan of "mixes" at all. I thought I would be the only one with this opinion. I listen to my music one album at a time rather than one song at a time. Music is a big part of my life and I have hundreds of albums that I cherish, I just do not usually listen to music broken out from an album. It's like cutting up a bunch of legendary paintings to make a collage.
