Why do some songs have to have the most rediculous lyrics? I ask this today because I will be telling you about my current workout playlist, which has some songs that are great to workout too, but have the silliest/dumbest/sickest/sexist/lamest lyrics ever. For example.
- Track 1 in the list is Eminem Just Lose It. Great beat to get started with cardio, but man, the worst lyrics eva!
- Track 2 is The Police Canary in a Coalmine. I have no complaints here. Great song.
- Track 3 is the awesome I Feel Love by The Blue Man Group. Less club, more hard driving beat. I don’t really have any complaints here either, but the song only has 3 words anyway. Also, I can only listen to the first minute of this song. Any longer and I’m sure I’d passout on the elliptical. I hope to be able to go the entire 4:06 without passing out in about another week
- Track 4 is The Red Hot Chili Peppers with Dani California. Actually like this song, including the lyrics. It’s a nice break after the last 3 tracks. It also signals that I’m almost done with cardio today.
- Track 5 is a lovely pop nugget from Gwen Stefani called The Sweet Escape. Too tell the truth, I’ve not heard the lyrics on this one yet. It has such a yummy groove that I really don’t care
- Track 6 and it’s time to move to machines. This is Shake That by Eminem with Nate Dogg. Great groove again, excellent beat, but really, don’t I need to hear how Nate gets women is his Hummer Truck? Also, I really don’t care how much ass he gets. But good for him for gettin’ some I guess.
The remaining 20 songs are just filler so I don’t have to listen to the piped in muzac the gym has while I hit the weights.
So, I guess it’s just the Eminem tracks that I have a problem with. Oh well, I’ll continue to put up with it as long as it works for motivation at the gym.
