Playlist Thursday is back! It’s been a minute, I know. But we’re coming back in a big way with some fun party-like songs to add to your workout playlist. Let’s not sit here and judge the musical content, just hit play, throw down on some weights, do a burpie, run a mile, rock a plank, spin on a bike, just do what you gotta do and PUT IN WORK.

Same format:

Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old. (I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.)
Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year.
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Feel free to list any song: old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever.

Something Old:

Artist: Gwen Steffani
Title: Hollaback Gril
Side Note: Can you believe that this album came out 10 years ago? FACT! The Love, Angel, Music, Baby came out in (late) 2004 and this song along with many others were all over the radio. I liked the sound, but it kinda just made me miss No Doubt.
Quotable: “A few times I’ve been around that track. So it’s not just gonna happen like that.”

Something Current:

Artist: Skrillex
Title: Recess
Side Note: His album Recess dropped last month to much anticipation. His sound has been duplicated and if imitation is the highest form of flattery, then this dude is flattered like no other. Even Avril Lavigne’s hair stylist would agree that this dude is dope.
Quotable: “Don’t let it stop, don’t let it stop”

Something to Consider:

Artist: The Chainsmokers
Title: #SELFIE
Side Note: C’mon. You knew if I was going to do a Playlist Thursday, that THIS song was going to show up at some point. This song is for pure laughter and jokes. It’s kind of ridiculous and kind of awesome at the same time. I’m digging the beat, but the girl talking just kills it for me. 78 Million view… dang. We have WAY too much time on the internet.
Quotable: “I only got 10 likes in the last 5 minutes. Do you think I should take it down? LET ME TAKE ANOTHER SELFIE”


There you have it. Three new songs and you are ready to go.

I’ve also got a big post planned for early next week… should be pretty exciting.
