I like to Move it Move it

Music is an exercise essential. I find it hard to find good stuff that keeps me moving so I've compiled a list of my favs for your listening pleasure. If you are in the giving mood, leave a comment with your additions. If you are thinking of suggesting Eye of the Tiger, you are officially uninvited to comment on this post. I want good music. Nuff said.

1. Catch My Disease by Ben Lee--This is the ultimate pick me up song. You cannot listen to it, and not get happy and energized asap. Its cool and easygoing, perfect for a warm up to get you upbeat, and get the blood flowing.

2. The Captain by Biffy Clyro-- Heard this song for the first time recently at an open mic. Loved it. If you haven't heard it yet, download now.

3. F**k You by Cee Lo Green--This song is so angry and upbeat at the same time. The only thing better than saying F**k you to someone who screwed you over is saying it with a smile. Go Cee Lo. And for the younger ears, you can get the edited version, Forget You.

4. Better Than Revenge by Taylor Swift-- Taylor is my homegirl and we will be tight one day when I am famous too. Until then, this lesser known song of hers is one of my favs.

5. Take Me For Who I Am from the Musical Rent--I prefer the movie soundtrack version to the original broadway cast, but either way, this song is gutsy, sexy, and everything else a good workout song should be.

6.  In Exile by Thrice--Potentially one of my fav songs of all time. Thrice is awesome, and so is this song.

7. Paris (Ooh La La) by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals--Just discovered her, but I like it so far.

8. The First Single (You Know Me) by The Format-- The Format is my fav band of all time, and I frequently have their entire albums on my workout list, but this is one of the better songs for the intended purpose.

9. Give It Up by The Format-- I just really like this song.

10. Ive Just Seen a Face from Across the Universe soundtrack-- No play list is complete without the Beatles. This song is easy to fall in love with.


  1. I listened to the list and F**k you and The First Single are tied for my favorite. My favorite song of all time is probably Everlong by Foo Fighters. I also have a soft spot for certain Pearl Jam songs ;)

  2. Thank you so much for posting these, I'm always looking for new workout tunes! There are some on here I've never heard of, love it! :)

  3. F**ck you is amazing, great choice. I just discoverd a band called Two Door Cinema Club. They're pretty upbeat. Check em out.

  4. Oh come on people! What music gets you going? What's your workout jam?


Talk to me Harry, tell me all about it!
