So I was sitting here trying to think of something to blog about today. First thought was the weather, because thanks to it constantly changing I’ve sounded like a 13 year old boy the past couple days. But then I realized that was really all I had to say about the weather.

Then I thought I could blog about this class I’m taking through a local church taking where you basically unearth all these truths in front of total strangers to help yourself figure out why you do the things you do. I’m only through week 3 though—and I think I’ll wait until more startling revelations come out before I share that with you guys.

Then it dawned on me. I’ve been listening to music all day long because I’ve been working on projects that were taking a little while—so I decided to jam out while doing it. I love listening to music, and I know it sounds so cliché, but I really do like a lot of different things. Janis to Adele, Beatles to The Stones, Tom Petty to Adam Levine.

Today, what I’m going to do, is put down the 10 best songs I have on my workout playlists. I HAVE to have music when I workout, and I’ve created two playlists with 40 songs each. These aren’t ballads by any means—these are songs that get me through my last few reps on the shoulder press. They’re songs that let me do just ONE more squat. They’re songs that stop me from crying when I’m stretching out after a 45 minute elliptical workout (just kidding. Kind of).

I could have put these in my tomorrow’s Weighing In blog—but then two things would have happened. 1) You wouldn’t have had a blog to read today, and 2) these songs wouldn’t have gotten the credit they deserve.

So without further ado, here are my top 10 workout songs (+ one bonus song because I couldn’t narrow it down) in no particular order with Youtube links to them (with the exception of The Josh Davis Band one). Enjoy!

11. Back to Indiana (The Elms)
10. Burning Love (Elvis Presley)
9. All These Lives (Daughtry)
8. Audience of One (Rise Against)
7. The Crow & The Butterfly (Shinedown)
6. Water’s Edge (Seven Mary Three)
5. I Alone (Live)
4. Gypsy (The Josh Davis Band)
3. Love & Memories (O.A.R.)
2. Let It Rock (Kevin Rudolf)
1. Supermassive Black Hole (Muse)
