Bret and I spent the day bike riding yesterday since it was so gorgeous outside. I feel significantly better than I had towards the tail end of this week, although I don’t think my sinuses are clearing up at all.
“Don’t Let Me Fall” by B.O.B.
I’m pretty obsessed with B.O.B. right now. “Airplanes” got too much radio play and made me despise the song, but this song is a true winner. It’s a good song to get you in the mood to push yourself. I have found that if you know the lyrics to a song it makes it easier to pass time. In order to really appreciate this song, learn the lyrics. It’s cool to listen to B.O.B. tell his story of going from the bottom to the top. It’s also fun to sing-a-long to 🙂
I feel like everyone and their mother got remixed by David Guetta this year. Trust me — this isn’t me complaining. I was super-ecstatic when David Guetta decided to team up with Kid Cudi to put a song together. I heart Kid Cudi (and can NOT wait for his album to drop this fall… EEEK!) The dude has issues, but I really enjoy his music.
“Everybody Speaks No Americano” by Mashup Germany
Uhm, Phantom of the Opera, Backstreet Boys, and Benny Bennassi? This is a fun mash-up that is quirky and really fun to listen to.
“Hey Hey” by Dennis Ferrer
I like that this song is kind of a “chill” dance song, but it’s also easy to remember the lyrics. Whenever I listen to this, I can’t help but say “hey hey” in the middle of the song.
“One (Your Name)” by Swedish House Mafia
I already loved this song, but this remix is too good to not include on this playlist. This song will keep you pushing harder and put you in a dancing mood 🙂
“One” by Sky Ferreira
I know! Two songs called “One” in the playlist. I really like this song… This is the song Justin Bieber wishes he could sing — actually he probably could. I really enjoy her music, and at only 18, I think she’s taking the right steps to become something big.
“Check It Out” by Nicki Minaj ft. will.i.am
I hate will.i.am. I don’t know why, but for some reason, he always gives me the creeps. Regardless, this song grows on me the more I listen to it. I’m sure the radio is going to kill the song in a month or two, so enjoy it now.
“Monster (Richie Beretta Remix)” by Lady Gaga
Because I play all the Lady Gaga songs once they come out non-stop, I have to go search for remixes so the songs don’t get old for me. I really wished Lady Gaga made a video for this song, but nothing is out there yet. This is such an awesome remix that doesn’t lose the original song in the mix.
“Who’s That Chick” by Rihanna
New song released by Rihanna. I was not a fan of her last album (too dark… Whatever happened to the “SOS” days?) This one definitely has a more dancey feel to it (think “Please Don’t Stop the Music”).
“You Got the Love” by Florence and the Machine
This is a good song to listen to to clear your head and to begin cooling down. The harps add a nice little touch to the song.
“I Am Not A Robot” by Marina and the Diamonds
This is also a good cool down song. While this song isn’t for everyone, I think it’s great with a really good meaning behind the lyrics. If you listen to it, the lyrics explain how she has vulnerabilities and that it’s ok to be human — no one is perfect.
I’ll end this post with the “Dancing on my Own” video. I’ve been pretty obsessed with this song for awhile now, and it never gets old for me. I love watching this video with the song because it’s so simple and full of emotion:
