How to burn off those bunnies
I made myself a smokin' new workout cd yesterday, in anticipation of mega chocolate glomming today. And it worked. I did 12 miles in 40 minutes yesterday, which is the first time I've done so for a couple of months now. You can never had too many workout cds, because every now and then you just need a little fresh inspiration .
Here's the playlist:
Werewolves of London – Warren Zevon
White Collar Boy – Belle and Sebastian
Roam – the B-52’s
Poison – Constantines
Star Bodies – the New Pornographers
Thank You for Sending Me an Angel – Talking Heads
Speak Slow – Tegan and Sara
When You Wasn’t Famous – the Streets
The Blues are Still Blue – Belle and Sebastian
Psycho Killer –Talking Heads
Airline to Heaven – Billy Bragg and Wilco
I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) – the Proclaimers
Movin’ On Up – Primal Scream
String Bean Jean – Belle and Sebastian
Sometimes Always – the Jesus and Mary Chain
Let Down – Radiohead
The Cloud Prayer – AC Newman
You and the Candles – Hawksley Workman
On the Bus Mall – the Decemberists
Hold on, Hold on – Neko Case
I'm glad I put String Bean Jean further down on the list so that it came on during weights and not during cycling, because I always have to sing along with Stuart: "I had to catch a buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuus".

I think a great workout song is 'Sisters are doin'it for themselves', by Eurythmics. It's almost 6 minutes long and lots of energy in it. Work them bunnies!

That is a good workout song, Barbara W. Sometimes the long ones are particularly good because you get into a rhythmn and go into a trance.

Fantastic playlist ... always had a soft spot for ol' Zevon ... and "The Cloud Prayer" - what a song! ... for me, probably some maximo park and some exhile on main street ... maybe the kinks or the futureheads.

I'm sort of rediscovering Warren Zevon after a bit of an absence, Will. He was great. And I adore Carl Newman. The Slow Wonder is a great cd, but way too short.
I need to check out more Maximo Park - I've liked what I've heard so far and I love LOVE Paul Smith's scissor kicks and combover. Good call on the Futureheads. I think their cover of Hounds of Love need to go on my next mix.

You lucky lucky woman, Phlgmfatale! I hope it's a fantastic show (and it's bound to be)!
