Playlist – 1 Jan 2018 – Workout

January 2, 2018 Greg Gioia No comments exist

I mainly share playlists from dance parties because I mainly DJ at functions where people are dancing, but I kicked off the new year by doing something different: a fitness group’s workout. I won’t lie– 2018 Greg was not completely happy that 2017 Greg booked a gig that started at 11am on New Year’s Day, and required 2018 Greg to begin 2018 by crawling out of bed at 8am, but 2018 Greg obliged, and showed up on time.

Starting a new year with a morning workout makes a lot of sense. What better way to start building new fitness habits, or reinforce existing ones, right? And a great soundtrack to the workout certainly helps motivate people to come exercise. My instructions were to play upbeat, fun, music without worrying much tempo. The workouts weren’t being done “to the beat,” so the vibe was more important than the BPM. Here’s what they sweated to:

Da Funk – Daft Punk
Wildcat – Ratatat
Blind – Hercules and Love Affair
Over & Over – Hot Chip

I’m Too Sexy – Right Said Fred
Lady Gaga – Applause
Feel Good Inc. – Gorillaz

Get Lucky [feat. Pharrell Williams] – Daft Punk
