Spark People has a list of the 100 best workout songs of 2103. The list is fine but seemed to be curated based on what was popular. Fail. I went to the comments looking for other song suggestions. There, I found users who felt the list was targeted to young people. Fair. Not everyone gets (or wants to get) Kesha and Two Chainz.

I decided to create a playlist for my older peeps. Someone’s got to. This  playlist includes both modern and old songs because I didn’t want to overwhelm them. I made  sure not to include anything annoying or threatening.

If your parent’s musical taste is limited to bird calls or npr broadcasts, this isn’t for them. This playlist is for parents with soul. Or, at minimum, a desire for it. No previous experience necessary.


Please share this with your favorite person over 50. Who’s it gonna be?

Umm…that was not my mom. That was me, using her computer, which apparently saved her name as Slomo’s mom. You know you miss this hot mess. C’mon.

Good music. Send a play list to my e-mail.

@Tommy (the tiger). I am going to make the ‘old people’ playlist a regular thing. The future ones won’t have stuff I’ve played before. I can’t have you sad!

@Tommy. I’ll pretend you didn’t partially inspire this.

Damn…..I had to listen and recognized many of the songs from your spin classes over the years…..and that made me sad.

Thanks for the list for the “old farts” though.
