If this doesn’t get you out of your seat, I don’t know what will:
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!
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!
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
