On the Hunt..


Having lost two 30g iPods in the battle vs. Me (I am otherwise known as the iPodKiller). I have also lost all my music! Ugh!! I realize I have to start small- First: I need upbeat work out music. I want new stuff, old stuff, whatever- but I am drawing a blank! I rarely listen to the radio so I am a little out of touch. Please help! I am very open to every type of music-so fear not! Leave me a comment & suggest me some tunes to download! If I am going to start working out again I need somethin' to get me movin'! So...what are YOU listening to?

Ok here we go:

Fergie- Here I come
Duffy- Mercy
ACDC- Thunderstruck
Christina Aguilera- Fighter and Dirty
Michael Jackson- Scream
Joss Stone- Super Duper Love
Nelly Furtado- I will make you cry
Pink, Little Kim, etc- Lady Marmalade
Santana- Amore

Anything by Ricky Martin I absolutely LOVE working out to Ricky Martin. I know...a little weird but his music is so energetic and upbeat. I particularly love "Cup of Life."

Ok, I'm drawing a blank on the other songs on my running play list. I'll look at it in the morning and let you know what else I love to listen to while I'm working out.

There is a song called Rock and Roll and it is my new favorite. I also love the Wreckers. I love Kanye, Lil Wayne... Joey and I love Hip-Hop...lol. The new John Legend song is good too. Haha I love that Court listens to Ricky Martin...haha!

P.S. I need to learn a new word rather than love. I need to hang out with Chris again to work on my vocabulary. HA ha

Wish I could help, but I don't really have time for music. All I listen to is Mickey mouse club house, diego, backyardigans... The list goes on, but you wouldn't like it! This is great though, 'cause I am getting an I-POD for Christmas and I will definately use some of these ideas! My last one broke too...

Spiker said...

I will agree with Courtney on Ricky... but not his fast tunes. Listen to Tu Recuerdo. My favorite Ricky song. Muy bueno!

Chris and Mari Spiker said...

We can't download from your comp linda! Your itunes is already on 5 computers! Boo! But Gracias for the suggestions! I assume the 2nd list is the faster stuff? & I am a HUGE Muse fan & because of my brothers I have an extensive Pearl Jam knowledge.

Jen said...

Riyannah (sp?) Disturbia...seriously, a great work out song. The beat is perfect for Aerobics, running, etc...

Here's a video for you Mari.

It's sort of weird/funny but you should appreciate it as a killer of iPods...and I am recently on a "Ratatat" kick...cool band, good music for working to

Chris and Mari Spiker said...

Jen! I love Rhianna! Good choice! And I am loving all the participation! Thanks guys! Any other ones you just feel free to suggest!
