Fabulous Five For Friday- My Top Work Out Songs!


One thing I love about working out is the music on my Ipod. There are times when I really want to get off the elliptical but low and behold the mother of all workout songs comes on. At that point I amp it up and as Emeril says: "Kick it up a notch!" I thought I would share my Top Five Work Out Songs. I think I may actually freak you out with a few of these!

1. Mama Said Knock You Out! By LL Cool J

"Don't call it a come back! I been here for years!" Don't you love an angry work out! Arrrrr!

2. Instant Replay- By Dan Hartman

You must have a little disco in your workout!

3. Here We Go- N Sync

Gotta have a little boy band action to round out the top five.

4. I'm You're Man- By Wham!

This is so 80's it's insane but it gets me going! "Baby, I'm you're man...don't you know that!"

5. He's All Over Me- Whitney Houston from The Preachers Wife Soundtrack

Have you ever tried working out to Gospel music? It is so amazing!

and one more!

6. The Main Event- Barbra Streisand

My all time favorite!!!




I am tagging MommyVents, Magnolia Mama, Keeks and Brie, Tres Poshe Preppy and Caffeine Court to list their top five workout songs!

Great list...I think my ipod is screaming for a little music makeover!

Kiki said...

Stronger, Kanye West...its on the cd at work and you should see the employees and myself when it comes on...madness ensues!!!

I loved your choices, LL is one of my faves, you clearly have great taste in fashion and also in music!!!

Karen said...

Great list, I also think music makes your workout so much better. I tend to work out longer with good tunes. I'm all about the dance/rap/pop when I workout.
