I need some playlist ideas

I am going to "guest teach" a class at my local training facility. Now, I love dance music but I don't think that would go over well with this group. Can you ladies post some playlists for me?? Thanks!!!!!!!
nscrbug2010-05-02 10:19:03 +0000 #2'd be surprised what "goes over well" in a spin class. I take a spin class with a particular instructor at my gym, twice a week. She always...and I do mean ALWAYS...uses "house" music for her classes. She gets a very diverse group, too. Old, young, middle-aged, black, white, hispanic, male, name it. I've never really heard anyone ever complain about her choice of long as it's pumping, we don't really care.

I say...go with the dance music. You won't be able to please everyone, all of the time anyway.

Ramones--Loud and Fast. It's a greatest hits compilation and I frequently listen to it in lieu of Spinervals music when on the trainer.

Of course, don't know how the Ramones would go over in a spin class.

I used to loooove warming up to "How to Save a Life" by the Fray

Some other great warm up songs:

Badly Drawn Boy - Silent Sigh

Lali Puna - Faking the Books

Corinne Bailey Rae - Put Your Records On

However, some faster AWESOME suggestions:

Queen - Don't Stop Me Now

The National - Brainy

Crazy- Gnarls Barkley

Chemical Brothers - Surface to Air

Cake - Going the Distance

Radiohead - Weird Fishes

Postal Service - Such Great Heights

Led Zeppelin - Immigrant Song

Regina Spektor - Dance Anthem of the 80's

Coldplay - Viva La Vida

Guster - Two Points for Honesty (starts slow but picks up-- it really motivates me)

Cool down suggestions:

Modest Mouse - Gravity Rides Everything

Badly Drawn Boy - A Minor Incident

Iron and Wine - Flightless Bird, American Mouth
