In my quest to turn my iPod into a portable dance party, I hit up the ole iTunes store to find some music to get my ass moving in the gym.

(as an aside, typically when I am able, I take out all of my frustrations on myself in a way that you wouldn’t expect. It’s either unbelievably healthy or unbelievably horrifying: I beat my own ass at the gym. I am telling you that I can get the hurt on myself. And that I love it)

So, today I downloaded some Prince (because I have single handedly destroyed my CD collection because I totally suck) and some Notorious B.I.G. and holy shit had I forgotten how good and dirrrrty Prince is.

That’s probably the most annoying part of becoming a grown up, you can’t sing snatches (get it?) of Pussy Control in public without offending someone. Nor can you pull up to pick the Notorious B.E.N from school while blasting “Gett Off.”

*sighs*

I think I need to revisit my teenage years again.

What music should I download to get my ass wriggling at the gym?

  1. Depends. If I’m running, it’s “Republica” by “Republica.” Cross training is “Futuresex/lovesounds,” walking is “Dark Side of the Moon” and weights are “The Marshall Mathers LP.”

    Guess which one of those i hate the most.

  2. I had an ex who said he thought of me whenever he heard Pussy Control. How did we ever break up?

    Anyway, the kids and I always dance to disco – how can you not move when Abba is playing?

  3. My working out (that is, when my fat ass bothers to do so) music is either loud and hard (that’s what she said, hur hur) or hip hop. My picks are System of a Down, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Iggy Pop, Jay Z, N.E.R.D, Lil’ Kim, and various others that I’ll have to check my iPod for. If you want hooked up, you know where to find me.

  4. Prince, oh, man, I could totally go for getting dirty while listening to some of that! But you want to know what it would take for me at the gym. It would depend, my idea of the gym would be 23 positions in a 1 night stand! You’re probably looking for the stair stepping, eliptical riding, aerobics kind huh? For me it would be anything I can’t sing to! If I sing, I don’t move at least not the aerobic way! Probably some Pink Floyd for riding the bike, Rush for the eliptical, and for aerobics it would have to be something like the Gin Blossoms, Nine inch Nails or something of that sort. Yes, I am totally old school when it comes to music, but I’ll listen to anything except RAP, unless of course it’s the Beastie Boys (but who the hell counts them as RAP besides themselves?)

    Hope you are doing well today and the gray cloud has lifted!

    Much love, Me!

  5. Well, I don’t know how old you are, but how about Olivia Newton John’s “Let’s Get Physical?” Man, I loved her music. Now when I listen to it, I realize her voice wasn’t that great, but I still listen.

    And Prince??? I loved him too. How about the song “Erotic City?” Talk about DIRTY.

  6. When I work out the only other people in the gym are half asleep and 70+ men getting a warm up before playing a couple rounds of golf. If I can put up with their crazy silent gas emissions then they can put up with my singing along to Run D.M.C. and um…DMX…and some Beastie Boys.
    Ya’ll gonna make me loose my mind, up in here, up in here.

  7. I recommend New Radicals. Sure, they only put out one CD, but it’s awesometastic! And upbeat! And makes me wanna clean things!

    Yeah, I’m a freak.

    Welp, I’m off to clean the base! Maybe that’ll help pass THIS 16 hour day. o_O

  8. Lately I’ve been on an 80’s and 90’s rock kick when I’m working out. AC/DC, Metallica, Guns and Roses, Korn, etc…

  9. I may be the worst person for avdice, since I have the soul of an adolescent boy when it comes to music choices. I work out to Guns N Roses (Welcome to the Jungle), AC/DC (Back in Black) and other fast-paced rock music. I like the angry stuff. I too am an aggressive angry exerciser.

  10. I will deny this and play dumb if you ever find my iPod – but when I’m working out I listen to a lot of Britney Spears. I also have Missy Eliot, Eminem (hey, I’m from Detroit – gotta love the local boys), Fatboy Slim and Gwen Stefani in heavy rotation.

  11. Gym? To this day, I have no idea how people can stand to workout indoors. Take up hiking, jogging, roller blading, or white water rafting or dirt biking. Listen to whatever you like, because you’ll be moving whether you like it or not;-)

  12. <3 Prince forever and ever!

    My gym playlist includes: Prince, Eminem, Pink Floyd, Dixie Chicks, Peter Gabriel, too much Black Eyed Peas, Sean Paul, Pussycat Dolls and Kenny Rogers (Kenny and Dolly 4ever!)

  13. So I assume Darling Nikki is in your Prince rotation. Diiiiirrrrrrrty. Masturbating with a magazine. Meaning she’s looking at it, or…?

  14. I LOVE Prince! Pussy Control is such an ass-shaking song. Darling Nikki is my alltime fave though. I can recite the words at a moment’s notice.
