I have been really enjoying going to the gym in my building’s basement and running on the treadmill. Weird mind trick: Sometimes, I just feel like “ugh, going 4 miles away is sooooo far” and for some reason just being in the same place doing 4 miles makes it seem shorter to me.
Lately, though, the thing that’s made me enjoy the treadmill is that it’s one of the only times I afford myself the luxury of listening to music while working out. So what’s playing on the treadmill dance party lately?
January/February’s theme has been running emo in honor of Panic! At the Disco’s new album that came out 2 weeks ago. “I love the way you hurt me, baby,” I sing tenderly to my treadmill while my eyeliner melts all over my sweaty face. Lot of Fall Out Boy including:
- Irresistible featuring Demi Lovato
- My songs know what you did in the dark
- Uma Thurman (The Munsters!)
- The Phoenix
- Dance, Dance
Next up, Panic! At the Disco including:
- Crazy = Genius (I enjoy the big band influence on this one)
- Don’t threaten me with a good time (ROCK LOBSTER!)
- Emperor’s New Clothes
- Miss Jackson
And last but not least, “Confident” by Demi Lovato.
And as always all of 1989 because I still love that entire album from the first second to the last.
Favorite new songs to work out to? Something I can add to make the treadmill more bearable?
