Wow!!- It is sooooo cold where I am! I’m not just talking about a little cold, I’m talking about pipes freezing and school closing kind of cold. Not that I’m complaining. A nice little snow day has given me a chance to catch up on some new music and the blog. 🙂
Today I’m sharing my two latest playlists with you. Let’s get started with PopLove. Here is the Spotify playlist:
Also included in the playlist is a 9:29 mashup by Robin Skouteris called PopLove2 (2013). It’s a 56 song mashup of 2013’s most popular songs and you can download it here:
This is The New Year: Warm up in the saddle. I know, I used this one last week, but the lyrics are perfect for those ‘new year resolutioners’!
I Wanna Go: Continue the warm up, bringing it out of the saddle when you’re ready.
Knock On Wood: Standing climb
Hungarian: Seated accelerations @ :14 (25 seconds), 1:09 (25 seconds) and 2:04 (50 seconds)
I Could Be King: Alternate seated standing climb
If You’re Wondering If I Want You To: Seated flat
Mit Dans Is All Die Werlt Genesen: Standing flat
Somewhere Only We Know: Standing climb
This is What It Feels Like: Seated accelerations @ 1:05 (25 seconds) and 2:30 (45 seconds)
Poplove: We alternated seated/standing climb here to break up the 9 1/2 minutes.
Long Black Road: Seated climb
Turbulence: Rider’s choice
Kaleidoscope Heart: recovery
Tabata: Seated acceleration intervals
Say Something: Cool Down. One of my riders told me to watch the video for this one. She warned me it was a tear jerker but I had to check it out. If you haven’t seen it yet, get the tissues ready:
I’ve got to give my Monday night riders credit for being on the ball. Two separate people approached me last night to inform me that January 8th is Elvis’ birthday. Now I do love my Monday riders. They are consistent and they work their asses off week after week. So of course I will oblige them with a little Elvis love.
Here’s how it’s going to go down:
I think 6 Elvis-related songs will work well in this profile AND make my Elvis loving riders happy. The songs are not so Elvis-y that it will turn the rest of my riders off though. 🙂
Here are the Deezer Links for both playlists:
And speaking of Deezer: My friend John at ICI/Pro has developed a FREE tool for converting Spotify playlists to Deezer for anyone that is switching from one to the other. You can see what that’s all about by clicking the link below!:
And while you’re over there, check out my newest post which should come out on Friday. I’ll be sharing ALL of my favorite tunes from 2013 with a top ten list and a playlist containing nearly 50 songs to pedal to!
