More Music That Moves Me
I am always listening for new music to add to my “workout mix” playlist. Thanks to my friend Gabby, I discovered the Kim Sozzi Radio “station” on Pandora and I’ve collected some good beats to move to while working through a heart-pumping cardio or circuit training workout. What I particularly like about these songs is that you won’t hear them on mainstream radio a dozen times a day. In fact, chances you are you may not hear some of them even once today on a local radio station. So, as we head into another weekend, here are my 10 new favorites that keep me moving at the gym. (They also help me keep walking at a pretty good pace during my walk to work in the morning!)
“Get Better” KMC featuring Sandy
“Why You Had to Leave” Cascada
“Point of No Return” Unique/DJ Encore
“Chemistry” (Eric S Remix Radio Mix) Velvet
“The Longest Road” (Deadmau 5 Mix) Morgan Page
“I Can’t Help Myself” (Sunfreakz Mix) Bellatrax featuring Sophia May
“Flatline” (Kyau & Albert Radio Edit) Cosmic Gate featuring Kyler England
“Can’t Sleep” Above & Beyond
“Man on the Run” Cerf, Mitiska & Jaren
“Unforgivable” Armin van Buren featuring Jaren
I realize there are a lot of music genres out there, and these dance songs may not motivate you to move. That being said, I’d love to hear what tunes keep you in motion! Also, if you have music that helps you cool down, stretch or unwind after a workout or a long day, please send those titles and artists along, too.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend filled with lots of opportunities to have fun, be fit and feel fabulous!

I love Man on the Run by Cerf, Mitiska & Jaren. Check out “You Never Said” by Cerf, Mitiska & Jaren (Dash Berlin mix). I lose myself in this song every time I hear it. The lyrics are awesome and the beat amazing. This is both my exercise song and cleaning song haha!
Hello Yisell, Thanks for the song suggestion – and for the link to it! Consider it added to my iTunes files. Yes, we all need music to move us whether we’re working out or working around the house and I use these beats for that, too. Have a great weekend!
Check out this mix by LCD Soundsystem (one of my fav bands). Nike hired them to create a jogging mix a few years ago. Starts off slow and then gets faster and at the end is more of a cool-down thing. Here is one part of it – the total “running” time is 45:33:
Hi Joe, Thanks for taking the time to write in with a suggestion. I’m always looking for high-energy music! have a great weekend!
