I cannot stand the mocking…..

26 Jun

For too many months i have had to endure the mocking and snide comments of those who believe that the music choices of a 50 year old is suspect.

For the life of me  I cannot imagine what is wrong with  extracts from  Glee mixed with the occasional bit of obscure 1980’s feminist punk. But, obviously, “young people” have their views, which, apparently, i have to listen to.

So, im going to make 2  workout tracks with the best  music  that you, the undiscriminating and ungrateful music critics  of Crossfit London can choose.

So, if you can suggest your number one workout song, put it in comments below, and as long as I can buy it on itunes, its yours!

(For the record, we do pay for a performing rights music licence)

I cannot see whats wrong with “Agadoo” anyway. Very tuneful!

Edit: Steven here!

I have created a collaborative playlist on Spotify which includes all* of the tracks below which you are welcome to contribute to. Link: CrossFit London Client Requests

*With the obvious exception of Colm’s ‘musical’ choices…

  1. “Rocky” theme tune – “Gonna Fly Now” (Bill Conti) – can’t be beat!

  2. Crystal Fighters – At Home
    fantastic WOD tune and the license fees will go to an ‘up and comer’.

  3. Hard to pick one workout track, but in the spirit of just getting back from Ibiza:

    Swedish House Mafia (feat Pharrell) – One (Your Name)

  4. Wow! No more Glee and the Doors? Are you sure you are ok with this Andrew?

    Hmm workout tunes,

    Lil Wayne: A Milli is a goodie

  5. ‘Remember The Name’ by Fort Minor please. Hands down, my fave. Always makes it on those Internet lists of the top ten most motivating songs, alongside ‘Eye Of The Tiger’. Thank you…
    I have MAD, musical affective disorder, so can feel the energy increase when this comes around on the playlist.

  6. This is going to be the weirdest playlist ever.

    Another one: Dizzee Rascal – Bonkers

  7. I’m not afraid to represent (my terrible workout music taste) – I want girly electro-pop of the ladyhawke, la roux, little boots variety…

  8. ive loaded up to Aprils request thus far, will load the rest on thursday night.
