I am always searching for unconventional music because 1) there’s nothing good on the radio, 2) my spinning students depend on me to deliver stellar workout playlists, and 3) there’s nothing good on the radio.

This is a list of songs that I have used on my spinning playlists. They’re not mainstream and they’re not new. And that’s why they’re good. I encourage you to try these songs for your next workout.

1. Jai Ho by A.R. Rahman

2. Brighter Days by Cajmere

3. Rods and Cones by Blue Man Group

4. Un Poco Flamenco by Chilly Marry

5. Strangehold by Ted Nugent (This is an 8 minute rock song. If guitar rifts get your blood pumping, you will love this.)

Your assignment: Comment below with a great song that I haven’t heard before. I dare you to expose me to a amazing song.

I just did the same thing on my facebook page. Well not quite, I asked people to give me the best workout song. I didn’t get any real shockers but I get some things that I had not thought of. I will give.this a try.

Try “Its over now” by 4th Ave Jones. I love that group.
