Hey there! I guess it’s come down to me posting both of my weekly playlists in one post. I hope you don’t mind. Right now, it’s been working for me, so I think I’ll keep at it and see how it goes. I usually am able to entertain you with at least one other post during the week as well.
In addition to the two playlists I’m sharing, I must tell you what’s been on repeat this week. We drove a few hours yesterday to see a Celtics vs. Knicks pre-season game, and I drove my husband and kids nuts in the car listening to this one:
It works for a standing or seated hill, or a combination of both. Love it.
Since putting together playlists for cycling classes is kind of my ‘thing’, most people think I’m on the cutting edge of all the music that’s out there. Nothing really could be farther from the truth. I don’t actually spend a lot of time listening to the radio. I do watch iTunes for the newest releases, but sometimes, really great songs just slip by unnoticed. You’d really be surprised at where and how I come across new music sometimes. The other day I was working in my classroom with one of my fellow kindergarten teachers and I turned on Pandora radio. (Hint: if you want a really cool, mellow station to listen to while you work, try ‘Jason Mraz Radio’.) Anyway, THIS song came on and I had never heard it before. Apparently it’s from one of the ‘Twilight’ movies, which I have not seen. That might explain why I haven’t heard it I guess.
I played it in the car the other day and both of my kids start singing along. WHAT? ‘Boys, have you heard this song before?’ ( I totally thought I had stumbled upon something new I guess). ‘Ummmmm…..yeah mom. Where have you been? They only play it on the radio ALL THE TIME!’ Oh. Well then. I really need to listen to the radio more.( And my kids really need to share their music finds with me!) Apparently it was released about a year ago. Like I said, these things slip right past me sometimes. Either way, it’s really pretty and earned a spot in my cool down/stretch this week:
Here are my two latest playlists:
**I’m using screen shots as well as the embedded playlists becuase sometimes all of the songs don’t carry over onto the playlist. To listen to the entire playlist, head on over to my Spotify page by following the link on the right side bar. 🙂
