It’s time for Friday Five linkup with DC area bloggers Courtney at Eat Pray Run DC, Cynthia at You Signed Up for What?!, and Mar at Mar on the Run!  Be sure to stop by their blogs and say hello!

This week’s theme is Favorite Fitness Tunes…  I smiled when I saw today’s prompt, because I knew I’d need help with this one, and I knew just where to go.

I love music, but never seem to know the name or artist of my new favorite song.  That’s because I’m spoiled…  My son Daniel makes CD’s for me of songs he thinks I’d like, and his mixes are always perfect.

Yesterday morning I sent Daniel an email begging for help, and by lunchtime he had sent nine suggestions (complete with YouTube links) from songs on recent CD’s he’d made for me.  What a guy!

I present Daniel and Deb’s favorite workout songs:


1. Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis


2. Radioactive by Imagine Dragons


3. Gold On The Ceiling by The Black Keys


4. Little Talks by Of Monsters And Men


5. Dead and Gone by The Black Keys


Bonus: Can’t Stop by The Red Hot Chili Peppers



  • Questions:
  • Do you listen to music when you workout?
  • What type of music do you enjoy?
