As I’ve mentioned, I’m all about the music when I’m exercising – sometimes it can make or break a workout!  Check out these fresh tunes that have been all over my gym playlists lately.  Some of them are very recent; some are a little older but might not be on your music radar yet.

Top Tunes Tuesday will be a new series where I update every week with great music finds to help you stay motivated through your workouts!

  • Say Hey (I Love You) – Michael Franti & Spearhead. This is such an upbeat track, with a great message.  It instantly puts me in a great mood and helps me get through the rest of my workout with a smile on my face.
  • Ramalama (Bang Bang)- Roisin Murphy. Although it’s from 2005, this quirky tune always gets stuck in my head after I hear it!  With a great jazz-inspired backbeat, it’s a great mid-workout song.
  • United States of Pop 2009: Blame It On The Pop – DJ Earworm. Released at the end of 2009, this innovative DJ mixes together the top 25 songs of the year into one remixed song that always gets me singing along.
  • Like A Prayer – Glee Cast. The cast of Glee never seems to fail when they perform a hit song on their show, and the Madonna-centric episode was certainly no exception.  It’s wonderful to hear all of the different actors get to showcase their unique voices on this track, especially with the addition of a full choir!
  • Tightrope – Janelle Monáe.  My newest find, this soul-infused tune is upbeat, catchy, and even a great life motto – “They trying to take all your dreams/But you can’t allow it”.  Check out her great hair and outfit in the video too!

Let me know what you think – leave me a comment with your favorite new song to workout to!

  1. Right now, I like to go back to the 90s boy bands when I am working out. My favorite is New Kids on the Block, Summertime. It is helping me to get through the last few weeks until summer actually begins!
