rhythm is a dancer

on another note, i have been buying 'pump up the jam' type itunes lately and have found a few favorites. songs that you can't stand still to are really the best for cheering yourself up, going on a run or mopping tiled floors.

my goal is to make the ultimate mix tape for training season. you heard it here first, marta has decided to run a 10k. i know, i know, it's probably cake for most of you to run a 10k. i am sure most of you rockin' babes could run it in your sleep without waking up (miss anna) - but this is my first race experience, so i am hoping to be prepared & am already counting on the rock hard abs that will follow. (if you have any hot tips for training season, do tell. i need all the help i can get.)


here is a list of jammin' faves for my dance party of one.

maritime - parade of punk rock t-shirts
the get up kids - red letter day
will smith - switch
voxtrot - missing pieces
gorillaz - feel good inc.
kt tunstall - suddenly i see
justin timberlake - senorita
janet - someone to call my lover
goldspot - float on {the oc mix 6}
tina turner - proud mary
george michael - faith
dmb - warehouse
rihanna - sos
cher - strong enough
paul simon - graceland
dixie chicks - there's your trouble
postal service - such great heights
eurythmics - here comes the rain again

& my all time favorite to bop to...
marvin gaye/tammi terrell - ain't no mountain high enough

this is an "all play" so please comment on your own favorite tunes that put a spring in your step. surely they will put a spring in mine too.
it is getting warmer everyday.

Soak up the Sun! That's what I'd run to or dance to...if I ran...or danced. It's fun to drive to!

get the party started, pink
good luck, basement jaxx
hey ya, outcast
material girl, madonna
my humps, black eyed peas

just to name a few...

Hey! This looks like fun. I just figured out how to make an iMix. They also have Sport iMixes; you should turn this into one so we can have it!

Goldspot's "Float On" made both of our lists ... and I likes me some Eurythmics.

Ok, I wanna play.

Stronger by Britney Spears. I swear I can feel myself getting tougher just listening to it. Its got a great beat to it for making up your own weight routines (especially biceps and squats/lunges), which I'm embarrassed to say I do.

Hung Up by Madonna. Love it. Takes you up and down and just keeps going on and on. I like the long ones cuz they make my workout feel shorter.

Sexyback by my personal favorite, JT.
Goodnight and Go by Imogen Heap.

I can think of tons more, but these will suffice for now.

Hear This Now -

Gordon Lightfoot is money to work out with. If you have a chance, get Gord's Gold. It's like taking speed - without the side effects or addiction problem. Get some Gord. Listen to it. You'll never want to stop working out. As Ben Stiller says in Starsky & Hutch, "Do it."

Marta, my favorite is that you have George Michael- Faith on your list. Awesome! Dan, are you claiming to know what it's like to take speed? Hmmm.
