I’ve been getting back into working out these past couple of weeks. It’s going great, I’m feeling really pumped, and I’ll tell you all about it in a future blog post. For now, I just need to beef up my playlist.

Here’s the dozen or so songs I return to most often on my playlist, these days (in random order). It will give you a good sense of what kind of music motivates me to get off my booty. Mostly dancey music, and mostly female vocals. Otherwise, go nuts with the reccomends, especially of stuff I would never think of.

212  – Azealia Banks
Lip Gloss – Lil’ Mama
Super Bass – Nicki Minaj
You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real) – Jimmy Somerville
Milkshake – Kelis
Cookie Thumper – Die Antwoord
Love Gun – Cee Lo Green feat. Lauren Bennett)
Bulletproof – La Roux
Monster – Kanye West
Teeth – Lady Gaga
Do it To Me – Ce’cile
Paper Planes – M.I.A.
Get Fresh – Kid Sister

I realize I’m missing some obvious ones (like Rihanna and Beyonce) on this shortlist. I do have them on my larger list, feel free to tell me your personal fave songs anyway.
