You guys. I was so excited when I heard that Mumford and Sons is coming out with a new album. (Look for it on May 4.) They released the lead single called Believe on March 9, and while it’s a completely different sound for them, I really like it. I named this playlist after the song and I’ll be using it as a cool down. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album. Take a listen:
I’m sorry I haven’t been posting as much as I have in the past. I’m trying to shoot for posting a playlist once a month. Sound good? I’ve been busy with taking classes for school and I’m also working my way toward being certified as a trainer for the YMCA!! This will allow me to train potential cycling instructors through the YMCA program. The program they use is actually Cycle Reebok. Does anyone have experience with this program? I’d love to hear your comments.
Here is the playlist followed by the teaching notes. It includes some new(ish) finds including High by Young Rising Sons and Bad Dream by the Mowgli’s. Bad Dream is actually a really upbeat song with great lyrics, which you wouldn’t be able to tell by the title alone. I hope you find something you can use!
