We’re pretty sure that just about every list of New Year’s resolutions includes a workout plan in one form or another. Your friends at Edison Partners decided to assemble a list of songs that are sure to get you fired up about the gym in 2016.
Here are 14 Edison picks for your playlist:
Lose Yourself by Eminem
Why: If you can’t get fired up with the opening of this song, check your pulse. Huge bass intro and the first line of the song…“If you had one shot, one opportunity, would you capture it or just let it slip”.
Eye of the Tiger by Survivor
Why: It's classic 80s rock and what's more motivational than Rocky? “Just a man and his will to survive…” [ Joe Allegra seconds this choice.]
Looking Up by SafetySuit
Why: Never know when you're going to turn the corner and your day just gets better. This song gets you going in a positive way.
Gonna Fly Now by Bill Conti
Why: How else are you gonna eat lightning and crap thunder?
Edge of Glory by Lady Gaga
Why: Because the song makes you want to move like Jagger.
Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen
Why: 150 beats per minute… Working out, driving…what don’t you want to do to the top feel-good song of the last 50 years?
Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N' Roses
Why: An oldie but goodie...brings me back to the good ol' days of wrestling and lacrosse practice.
Stronger by Kelly Clarkson
Why: Great for running at 128 BPM. Whether it’s a relationship, work or just life in general, “What doesn't kill you makes you stronger!”
