My Top 5 Workout Albums
Whittling down my top 5 favorite workout albums is possibly the hardest task anyone could set me. After much deliberation I decided to consult my itunes library so that it could tell me which artist and albums I utilize most when it comes to workout music. These albums have been the most value for money for me. And being that the majority of albums these days are based around singles and then just filled up with, well, fillers, this is an achievement in itself.
So, here are my top 5 workout albums:
5. Britney Spears – My Prerogative
What was that, I think I heard a communal groan??? Yes, Britney. I know itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s daggy, but when no one is watching (or listening) I love a bit of britters. This is a collection of all her hits and, well, lets face it, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s about all sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s good for.
Best bits: Boys, Slave for you, Toxic.
Give it a miss: Sometimes (too daggy even for me).
4. DestinyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Child -#1’s
Another great collection of hits. Packed full of girl power and sassy attitude. Resist the temptation to start singing outloud at the gym though…
Best bits: Bootylicious, Independent woman pt 1, Survivor.
Give it a miss: Cater to you, Emotions, Stand up for love (definitely not work out material).
3. Missy Elliot – Respect M.E.
Shock horror, another Ã¢â‚¬Ëœbest ofÃ¢â‚¬â„¢! Mah they are usually the best value for money. For the more hip-hop minded, although not for the prudish if you have a tendency of paying attention to the lyrics. Majority of the work out songs are packed toward the front of the album.
Best bits: Get Ur Freak on, Work It, We Run This.
Give it a miss: All In My Grill, Hit Em Wit Da Hee.
2. Black Eyed Peas – Elephunk
The first album they did with Fergie was a definite winner, although I did like the good ol days when it was just the boys. Classic Will.i.am beats and sing-a-long-able hooks make this a great pop/hip-hop album to work out to.
Best bits: Lets Get Retarded, Hey Mama, Shut Up.
Give it a miss: The APL song, Third Eye.
1. Pussycat Dolls – PCD
Probably one of the girliest albums ever! But give it a miss if you are a feminist. I think that the Pussycat Dolls couldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve possibly released every song on this album as a single, and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m pretty sure they nearly did. Anyway, a great album that has attitude and sex appeal.
Best bits: Buttons, Beep, Wait a Minute, I DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t Need a Man, Bite the dust.
Give it a miss: How Many Times How Many Lies, Tainted Love, Stickwitu.
Now I’d love to hear what everyone else’s favorite workout albums are. There must be a huge variety out there!
