Funkin' It Up For Friday.




Woo! It's Friday. Not just any Friday, but the Friday before a Monday holiday. My favorite kind. So, in celebration of that, I've decided to share my most recent obsession...the Workout Compilation. Well, at least I'll share part of it.

I'm not exactly a fan of working out. I've been paying for my gym for the past eight months or so and haven't stepped foot in it. Until this week. I've been hitting the treadmill in such a way that Rocky would be proud. I'm quite the wuss at only 5.5 mph, but hey, at least I'm working towards lower cholesterol...

**The first time I heard this song was at DSC, and I remember being nice and tipsy and lovin' every minute of the ass-shakin' it was producing, which is something very hard to do on my end. It's the perfect beat for my running feet.

LCD Soundsystem - "Daft Punk is Playing at My House"

Album: Purchase here.

**It just so happens that this song came on after it in my little iPod playlist, and although I've listened to it plenty of times before, I never knew it's full workout potential until I was running and found myself mouthing "your lips are like a work of art, I kinda wanna tear 'em apart..." True story.

Butch Walker - "Hot Girls in Good Moods"

Album: Purchase here.

**This band is awesome. This song is even better when you're working up a sweat because it's the ultimate eff you when you listen to the lyrics. It puts you in that whole "I'm going to work harder and faster so that when you see me, your jaw will drop" mood. Wait...what? Nevermind, it's just a great workout tune. The entire album is the bomb diggity.

The Sounds - "Ego"

Album: Purchase here.

**Knock this band all you want, but when you want to kick it, they do the job. I promise. I never even listened to the album until I began working out regularly about a year ago. And it's one of the best things ever for this occasion.

Panic! at the Disco - "I Write Sins Not Tragedies"

Album: Purchase here.

**You should be ready to cool down by now if you're like me. So to top it all off, I throw on a little Metric because they're one of my top five favorite bands, and this track appealed to me immediately when I heard it about two years ago.

Metric - "Poster of a Girl"

Album: Purchase here.

There you go. I think it'll do the trick to get you in shape for bathing suit weather. No? Yessss.
