My Top Ten Workout Songs

My Top Ten Workout Songs

I have a huge playlist on my phone that I love to workout to. It is mostly from the 80’s and covers all genres from that era. There’s nothing better than being halfway through a grueling workout, and a song comes on that makes you smile!

1. Rasputin – Boney M

The lyrics to this song always keep me occupied and amused… Perfect for the tail end of a workout! I recently discovered Disco music, and these guys are by far my favorite.


2. Bizarre love triangle – New Order

This has been a favorite song and artist of mine for a long time, and this song is unbeatable.


3. Invisible touch – Genesis

Genesis is the best! This is only one of many tracks by them on my playlist.


4. Beds are burning – Midnight Oil

Australia represent! The bass to this is so awesome.


5. Just what I needed – The Cars

In case I am ever wondering about why I am working out, this provides a reason


6. I ran (so far away) – Flock of seagulls

This reminds me of playing GTA Vice City, and that provides a lovely mental distraction


7.   Obsession – Animotion

Another one that makes me want to dance and laugh simultaneously


8. Just can’t get enough – Depeche Mode

I usually start my workouts with this one. The beat and energy helps get me moving.


9. Road to Nowhere – Talking Heads

David Byrne is my spirit animal.


10. Go your own way – Fleetwood Mac

I cried when I saw them in concert a few years ago, such a fan!
