Workout Music

Monday, March 18, 2013

Sparkpeople.com has sponsored recently-released oldies cardio workout music. I’m very particular when it comes to my cardio because I love my treadmill and like to do cardio cycling (which in a nutshell is a series of faster then slower then faster then slower cardio routines). It’s hard to find pre-made music lists that would work, so, I handpick the music for my playlist. However, I happen to like this new oldies playlist. It still wouldn’t work for my cardio cycling, but it would work really well for aerobics or jazzercise. And this was developed based on feedback from Sparkpeople.com users. This playlist, called 80s Retro Hits, has music from the 50s and 60s, most of which are still very popular today. This music gets my vote. Here is the list, the top 15:

No. 1: Aretha Franklin – Respect (1967)
No. 2: Steppenwolf – Born to Be Wild (1967)
No. 3: The Monkees – I'm a Believer (1966)
No. 4: Martha & the Vandellas – Dancing in the Street (1964)
No. 5: The Kinks – You Really Got Me (1964)
No. 6: Elvis Presley – Jailhouse Rock (1957)
No. 7: Rolling Stones – Jumpin' Jack Flash (1968)
No. 8: Tommy James & The Shondells – Mony Mony (1968)
No. 9: The Beach Boys – Surfin' USA (1963)
No. 10: Foundations — Build Me Up Buttercup (1968)
No. 11: Chuck Berry – Johnny B. Goode (1958)
No. 12: Led Zepplin – Whole Lotta Love (1969)
No. 13: Rolling Stones — Paint It Black (1966)
No. 14: The Beach Boys – Good Vibrations (1966)
No. 15: Chubby Checker – Let's Twist Again (1961)
