Chris is back with this months Top 10 workout songs and I was so excited to get them! Now I just have to find time to actually download new music and synch my iPod! It’s the little things that get me. ;)
My 3 favorites on the list: Michel Jackson (of course), Will.I.Am, and the LMFAO tune. I have to be honest, I’m not the biggest electronica/dance fan but that seems to be where a lot of workout music comes from. I’m enjoying the fact that these lists are outside my normal music genre of rock/alternative/pop. It’s been fun discovering new stuff I would otherwise be oblivious of.
Without further ado…
Given that they’ve both passed on now, it’s been a surprise to see both The King and his son-in-law (The King Of Pop) drop club hits this month. Elvis turns up in a remixed version of “Suspicious Minds.”It’s the latest in a series of re-worked Elvis tracks that began appearing after Junkie XL had a crossover hit with “A Little Less Conversation” from Ocean’s Eleven.And, Michael Jackson’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’” also gets the remix treatment—though the changes are subtle—as part of the new MJ-themed Cirque du Soleil production Immortal.
Other highlights from the top 10 include Katy Perry’s latest single, two tracks featuring Lil Jon, and a curious collaboration between Will.I.Am, J-Lo, and Mick Jagger.
