Today has been a Helpful sort of Day.

I know that my current real life doesn't intrude on this blog much, but today I'm being helpful.

It doesn't happen often, but it *does* happen. So I am beta-ing a book ( actually I love that, so :D YAY) I helped some newish peeps on Twitter. And well....

IRL I am a professional Health nut. Someone (Identities withheld to protect the guilty) was looking for workout motivation. Nothing motivates quite like music.

So, I decided to put together some playlists. One that is more middle of the road pop and one that is heavier.

POP Play list >> Linky for Spotify peeps

Smack That ( Akon)
Let's Go Crazy (Prince & the Revolution)
Humpin' Around (Bobby Brown)
S&M (Rihanna)
New Jack Swing (Wreckx-n-Effect)
Here I Come (The Roots)
Sabotage (Beastie Boys)
It's Tricky ( Run-DMC)
Come Out and Play (The Offspring)
Basket Case (Green Day)
Snarl Axel (Beats Antique)
Cinema ( Benny Benassi)
Train in Vain (The Clash)
Ruby Soho ( Jimmy Cliff) << That is not a typo
Vivrant Thing (Violator Feat Q-Tip) 
Now Ya' Know (DJ Boom/Doug E Fresh) 

That's a 58 minute mix. Perfect length for a good workout :D

The Hard version is for those crazy enough to want a workout designed in hell ( or just scare the crap out of the person on the elliptical next to you) This was a little tougher, since I wanted it the music to not be so fast that it is impossible to keep cadence with it... but also, not completely lame.

HARD workout mix Spotify Linky
Sex Bomb (Spinnerette)
I'm Shipping up to Boston (Dropkick Murphys)
Clash City Rockers (TheClash)
Mother (Danzig)
Breaking the Law (Judas Priest)
Sabotage (Beastie Boys)
 Whiplash (Motorhead)
Blitzkrieg Bop (Ramones)
Time Bomb (Rancid)
Where Eagles Dare (Misfits)
Primal Concrete Sledge (Pantera)
Bulls on Parade (Rage Against the Machine)
Check Yo' Self (Ice Cube)
Wu Tang Clan aint Nuthin' to Fuck Wit' (Wu Tang Clan)
Shake a Lil' Somethin' (2 Live Crew)
Thunderkiss '65 (White Zombie)
7 Shots (Volbeat)
3 Shades of Black (Hank Williams III)
Y'all Motherfuckers Need Jesus (The Goddamn Gallows)

Okay. There they are. Two playlists for you to get sweaty to. Much love and mad props to all my twitter pals that helped me come up with the list. Even if your song wasn't on the list, it helped me think of/find things I might not have otherwise.

Hate the list? Have a song I missed? Think I'm a douchenozzle? Have the best workout of your life to one of these playlists? Feel free to let me know.
