Playlist::The 60’s and 70’s

I haven’t published a Workout Playlist in a while but got inspired during my Power Walk this afternoon. Here’s what I listened to. (Seems I’m on a nostalgia kick right now…)

There may be one or two without embedded videos, in which case I’ve included links to ones on YouTube (which will open in a new browser window).

17 songs
56 minutes

The Boys Are Back In Town (1976) Thin Lizzy
All I Really Want to Do (1965) Cher
Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves (1971) Cher
Dark Lady (1973) Cher
Half-Breed (1973) Cher
I’m a big fan and saw her perform live – once back in the 1970’s at the now-defunct Circle Star Theater and again in Reno during the early 1980’s (Where she shook my hand and gave me a 1000-watt smile. I was on cloud-nine…)
The Beat Goes On (1967) Sonny & Cher
Pride of Man (1968) Quicksilver Messenger Service
Just Like Me (1966) Paul Revere & the Raiders

Aaaah, Mark Lindsay. He’s not quite a Beefcake,
but I may have to start a new series entitled Hunks
just to celebrate this gorgeous man.

Kicks (1966) Paul Revere & the Raiders
Dance, Dance, Dance (1965) The Beach Boys
Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian) (1971) Paul Revere & the Raiders

How to do The Bump

Keep It Comin’ Love (1976) KC & The Sunshine Band
What About Me? (1970) Quicksilver Messenger Service

Aaaah, Dino Valenti
– he looked a little like my first boyfriend.

Sheena is a Punk Rocker (1977) The Ramones

I had a black Telescope goldfish. Named her Sheena.
(Sheena is a punk fishy. Sheena is a punk fishy. Sheena is a punk fishy now…)
Aaah, Joey Ramone – need I say more?

London Calling (1979) The Clash

(Ending this on a serious note.)

Playlist::Workout 2

All my Workout Playlists contain a medley of tunes that can be used during both the cardio and strength-training segments (that way I can mix it up to suit my mood) – with the last two songs designated for cool-down/stretching.
