Treadmill Tunes

For the past two years, I have been working out with an awesome personal trainer – I’d give you a link but Patrick won’t take my advice and create a personal website. The results have been worth every penny.

Although I often have my Zune playing when I am on the treadmill or elliptical machine, it is only recently that I put together a playlist of songs that I really want to listen to during a cardiovascular workout. I want music with a good beat and that can be turned-up loud enough to drown out the gym’s radio.

Here is a sampling of the 232 songs that make up my Treadmill Tunes:

Faith No More – We Care A Lot

REM – What’s The Frequency, Kenneth?

Shock Of Pleasure – Xenophobia

Sarah McLachlan – Vox

AC/DC – Thunderstruck

Teenage Head – Tornado

Blur – Song 2

Diesel – Sausalito Summer Nights

Smashing Pumpkins – Bullet With Butterfly Wings

Trooper – Raise A Little Hell

Garbage – Only Happy When It Rains

The Tragically Hip – My Music At Work

The Butthole Surfers – Pepper

Eels – Mr. E’s Beautiful Blues

Rob Zombie – More Human Than Human

Rollins Band – Illumination

Lily Allen – Fuck You

The Grateful Dead – The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion)

Midnight Oil – Beds Are Burning

Faith No More – A Small Victory

Transvision Vamp – Evolution Evie

Phish – Bouncing Around The Room

  1. Good list, if a little heavy on the Canadian tunes. Does the 35% minimun apply to expat’s playlists? 🙂

  2. You really think so? The Hip, Trooper, Teenage Head (from my “hometown” of Hamilton, BTW!) and Sarah McLachlan bias my list?

    I tried to show diversity in a small space without sharing out the complete list. But I do get a nice buzz listening to Canuck tunes down here – nearly an act of rebellion for my own self-inflated importance.
