If You Can’t Convince Them, Confuse Them

photo (30)

Most of you know, my passion for music is unlike any other and it only continues to grow as days pass.  This past weekend was a memorable night for me – graduating from DJ school and making my first live debut.  One of the primary reasons I enjoy teaching spin is of course helping people get in shape and live healthy lives, but I want people to have fun and enjoy the music while they’re bustin’ their ass off.  It seems to be working… because I continually see the same faces week after week.  There’s definitely a growing bond among my spin class that’s unlike any other.  Thanks to all who came to support me.  I will post that mix from my night soon for you to download and share.  

In the meantime, here is my spin playlist from last night:

You can’t always get what you want

…sometimes, what happens instead can be even better

One of the keys to move ahead…

… is knowing what to leave behind

And if you haven’t heard of these guys, you need to dig yourself outta of that rock.  Bad Rabbits from Boston just kicked off their #AmericanLove tour.  Peep this!  You’ll thank me later

Stop spending so much time living in the “what if”

…and start living in the “what is”

 

This week is the release of #MCHG so of course I had to play a few tracks from it.  Sure, it’s a definite hit as expected from HOV, but I’ll have a real opinion on it when I listen to it 6 months from now.  What did you guys think?

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

If you travel through life with a lack of conscience

… life will treat you similarly sooner or later

 

Last night was easily one of the top 5 classes I’ve ever taught!  Great energy and some of the hardest workin’ people ever!  I could tell everyone was into the class.  It definitely makes my job a whole lot easier (and fun)!  Here’s my playlist for those of you who requested it.  See you soon!!!
