Here is my top 10 workout songs as of July 2012, enjoy!
#10 Kings Of Leon – “Molly’s Chambers”: KOL are one of my favorite bands. Here is one of their older tracks; it’s southern rock at it’s finest. Crank this up, and hit those weights.
#9 Blondie – “Maria”: Yes, this song is from the late 90’s, however it still get’s me going. It’s a kick-starter, a hit song that is timeless in my book.
#8 The Killers – “Bling (Confession Of A King)”: Here we have my number 1 band, The Killers. Lyrics such as “I feel my vision slipping in and out of focus, But I’m pushing on for that horizon, I’m pushing on, Now I’ve got the blowing wind against my face” make this a perfect running song. It’s exhilarating, exercising at a high intensity while shouting “higher and higher” along with Brandon Flowers; give it a try you’ll love it.
#7 The Chain Gang of 1974 – “Devil Is A Lady”: This psychedelic/punk/experimental band from Denver has made a few great workout tracks; this one being my favorite at the moment. “Devil Is A Lady” has an incredibly addictive guitar riff and some pretty awesome synths.
#6 Neon Trees – “1983”: This song has a poppy, dancing beat, along with a catchy flow that will get you dancing in between sets.
#5 Kid Cudi – “Day ‘N’ Nite”: As you can see from previous top 10 posts, I don’t mention many rap songs. Kid Cudi is one of my exceptions; I like his style especially in this upbeat song.
#4 The Black Keys – “Gold On The Ceiling”: “Gold on the Ceiling: a serrated organ growl backed up with a SWAT team of hand claps. It’s Sixties bubblegum garage pop writ large, with T. Rex swagger and a guitar freakout that perfectly mirrors the lyrics, a paranoid rant that makes you shiver while you shimmy.” – Rolling Stone
#3 Man Like Me – “Squeeze”: This song is energetic, incredibly upbeat, and so much fun to dance to. Usually awesome dance songs make for good workout music.
#2 The Wandas – “Thank You Note”: Here we have one of those songs that make you think about all the good people in your life; it puts me in a good mood after every listen.
#1 The Killers – “Spaceman”: Yes I know, I already have a Killers song on my list. So what, deal with it. Spaceman is so much FUN; it’s a “proper synth-pop fist-pumper with an arena-ready chorus and enjoyably daft lyrics”. Listen to this song and you’ll be shouting “oh oh oh oh oh oh oooah”
