Happiness is not the absence of problems

…but the ability to deal with them

 

Not a fan of dubstep, but this made me laugh!

And to my playlist for the week – there are a couple new tracks… and a couple oldies too.  Expect an all out 90s playlist next week!  I’m taking requests, so email, FB, or tweet me.  (Oh, and don’t judge me cause I played Taylor Swift – it’s catchy!)

Your attitude determines everything…

If you want something to change, change your attitude

 

Last night, I played a mix by DJ Frank White for my class and it was soooo much fun!

“Back in the day” playlist

I get soooo excited when I hear the songs I grew up with, especially songs I can groove to and sing along.  I often get so sick of the current stuff because we hear it everywhere, and when I don’t feel inspired musically, I can always count on some old school 90s r&b and hip hop.  This was definitely of one the top 5 classes I’ve ever taught!  And I like to think the class felt the same…

 

They just don’t make music like this anymore…. hit it, Montell!

 

And here’s the playlist:

Going hashtag HAM!

This weather has got me in a blues rock funk!  This week’s playlist was in tribute to that.  I was hesitant to diverge from my typical top 40, pop, hip hop groove, but I am sure glad I did!  This music makes me wanna sit out in the sun, sip some ice cold PBR, and smile my face off.  This music makes me happy!  Check out this video from The Black Keys… you cannot help but smile!

One good thing about music…

…when it hits you, you feel no pain. -B. Marley

 

My current obsession is “The Shouting Matches”.  If you’re a fan of blues/rock, you gotta peep The Shouting Matches… fan of Bon Iver?  Well, guess what The Shouting Matches is Justin Vernon’s side project.  Groovy music to chill to… and apparently spin to!

When you focus on wanting what you can’t have…

… you fail to appreciate what is right in front of you

 

Obsessed with this song “White Noise” by Disclosure, and what’s even better is their music video.  Peep this!

 

 

On to my playlist for this week… enjoy!

Mo Money Mo Problems

Nothing beats the 90s.  It’s my era.  It’s when music really meant something to me more than just background noise — when the lyrics had meaning, and I could sing along to.  This era developed the foundation to what I love and listen to today.   I’ve always wanted to incorporate this era into my spin classes, but found it challenging.  1) it’s tough to really sprint to 2) there’s a plethora of songs – which ones do I choose 3) jumping is out of the question 4) it’s a very niche genre and could disappoint a good number of people… but you know what, screw that!  I’m teaching the class, so I’m gonna play what I want…bahaha
