This song is 10 years old but lately I've been hearing it all over the place -- it's like it's following me. The gym, the grocery store ... whatever, I'll go with it. Continue reading

I figure given my post yesterday, Restart is the perfect song for this week. I was listening to Sam Smith's album in the gym yesterday and didn't want to get off the treadmill and disturb my groove. If this guy... Continue reading

This song came on in the gym while I was doing high box steps with a medicine ball and that build-up to the bass drop happened just as I was starting to wobble on the third set. It cracked my... Continue reading

This guy -- the song came on in the car on the way back from Jazzercise and when I got home I popped in a Zumba DVD and DID. THAT. TOO. To be honest, I did that Jazzercise class at... Continue reading

Love the beat in this song, which I've heard snippets of in the past and couldn't find. Then Levi's started using it in a commercial that makes me think "I am officially too old for this Levi's demographic" as I... Continue reading

Heard this one over the weekend while watching "Sunday Night Football" and was reminded how much I love this album for working out. In addition to having it on my iPod, I also downloaded an OK Go treadmill workout where... Continue reading
