I was asked to make a mix of songs that would be suitable for listening to in the gym. I have no idea what other people like to listen to while exercising. A quick google search found some rather complicated and overly-thought out stuff about low BPM and pacing yourself etc etc. I don’t know about anyone else but I think I’d prefer something noisy and fast, something to run as quick as you can to until you can no longer. Something to sing and drum along to mid-stride. Something to stamp your feet to. Something to get the adrenaline flowing.
This mix might be completely wrong for you.

If you don’t go running or to the gym to lift heavy things, stick this on in your bedroom and enjoy anyway. You know the drill, support the bands. Once you have finished and taken a shower, get on your computer and order a few of the records. Maybe see a show or two.
