[DISCLAIMER]: Can’t figure out why it won’t let me use spaces between songs. I have also learned the hard way, two weeks in a row now, to SAVE WHILE DRAFTING! 🙂 Also, I will try to update the favorites section soon. Scout’s honor.
Feeling like I have an extra jump in my step lately. After an admittedly pretty terrible summer dealing with a break up and the stress of a-not-to-be-named-infestation in our apartment in the beginning of the summer leading to an immediate move back home at the parents house, fall is turning out to be pretty great. My big sister got married and we had some good family time on Cape Cod which is hard to get these days with everyone’s busy schedule. There’s been a lot of fun concerts in Boston, and the weekends have been filled with family, friends, drinks, and lots of fun new people. Speaking of concerts, I was right about Deadmau5 being the best concert ever. Again. Here’s proof.
Lindsey, Me and Megs – How fun are we with our glowstick mau5 ears!?
Here’s another playlist for ya. We did intervals for this class. Thanks for the feedback last week!
1. Gramatik, Boom Bap Reinstated (3:37):
Another Gramatik song for warmup this week. This one is super fun. He’s coming to Boston in early November and I will 100% be there! He’s on the Pretty Lights Label, and he is dope-fresh-sauce. I promise to try never use that lingo ever again.
3. Alex Guadino and Kelly Rowland, What A Feeling (2:59):
Ahhh… Alex Guadino brings me back to my days in Australia. Kelly Rowland… days of middle school. Either way, it’s a hot combination for a tune for sprints. We started the intervals for every 15 seconds switching between an easy 6 and 7.
4. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Up From Below (4:09):
Little hill for this one, switching between a 7 and 8 every minute. This group is phenomenal in concert. The song is a quick paced folk song, with interesting lyrics. I won’t get into it, but it’s about alcohol recovery. The lead singer, Alex (not Ed Sharpe)… well here I am getting into it. Listen to it for yourself and look this band up, it’s an interesting story about how they got together.
5. Ida Corr v. Fedde Le Grand, Let Me Think About It (2:37):
I’ve used this one before but it was more of a last minute decision when a song I was editing for about the same amount of time as this one wasn’t saving to my computer. Hopefully it works for next weeks class. 15 Second intervals, switching between a 6.5 and 7.5 and picking up the pace when the music drops.
8. Rihanna, We Found Love (ft. Calvin Harris) (3:36):
This girl… so hot right now. Beth wants the credit for this song even though I was totes going to use it anyway, but here you go Beth, here is your street cred. 15 second intervals here, picking up the pace during the chorus! 6.5 and 7.5 resistance.
9. LCD Soundsystem, Someone Great (6:26):
I love using LCD for climbs. They have music that you can get lost in for a few minutes, with a steady consistent beat for the whole 5, 6, 7 or even 8 minute song. We climbed heavy here, switching between an 8 and 9 every minute.
10. Fitz and the Tantrums, MoneyGrabber (3:10):
I don’t know a lot about this band yet but I really like the sounds of this song. It sounds a little like it was from another time period… What period, I can’t tell you. That’s just how I feel. Jumps, switch resistance between 6.5 and 7.5 every 30 seconds.
12. Ex Factor, Lauryn Hill (5:27):
Such a beautiful song. We quit it with the intervals and went for a heavy 5 minute climb at resistance 9. Nothing fancy, just close your eyes and keep a steady, heavy pace. No rush.
13. Flo Rida, Good Feeling (Disco Fries Remix) (6:15):
By now, you know I’m obsessed with a few artists. One is NOT this “Flo-Rida” guy, but it is rather Pretty Lights. This song is a house remix and mixes in Pretty Light’s “Finally Moving” samples (also have used that song for climb before). You can do sprints for 45 seconds at 2 minutes and 4:20 minutes in.
And now, because you know I can’t help myself but share my love for music with all you fine people… Here’s a little blip of what a Deadmau5 concert is like. Quality kind of stinks but just seriously check this out. Move away from the computer so you can dance for a minute:
