iTunes and Intervals

I’ve shared our secret for long indoor endurance rides on the CompuTrainers – movies!

But the secret for short hard punishing intervals is a really good iTunes playlist. Now that Apple is going to lower the price on its downloads (well, some of them, anyway)
I thought I’d offer some suggestions. I have a playlist with about 350 songs that I set up on shuffle and crank when we have interval workouts.

Here are some of the best (in no particular order):

Ain’t that Lonely Yet – Dwight Yoakam
Baby Did a Bad Thing – Chris Isaac
The Distance – Cake
Get the Party Started – Pink
Gone Daddy Gone – Gnarls Barkley
I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ – Scissor Sisters
Sixteen Tons – Tennessee Ernie Ford
I Run for Life – Melissa Etheridge
Many the Miles – Sara Barielles
Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On) – Alison Krauss and Robert Plant
Mercy – Duffy
1234 - Feist
Pepper – Butthole Surfers
Put Your Records On – Corinne Bailey Rae
Rehab – Amy Winehouse
Running on Empty – Jackson Browne
Saving Grace – Tom Petty
Something Good This Way Comes – Jakob Dylan
707 - Rosanne Cash
There’s Your Trouble – Dixie Chicks
Thunder Road – Bruce Springsteen
Time to Switch to Whiskey – Corb Lund

I’d love to hear any suggestions/additions you might have – I’m always looking for new music.
