A Workout Playlist

As with most things, I was late to the Spotify party. I had been told about it but was all "I want to be old skool and use cds" Then I started going out for my walks and the thing that was missing, to give me the motivation I suppose, was music.
Meh.
So I had to give in, and try it. After a free trial I loved it but thought I would just use the free service. Not as good at all. I got so annoyed at not being able to skip as many songs as I wanted and there is nothing worse than someone trying to sell you something when you are in the middle of a pretty brisk-in-the-zone walk.
So, I was sneaky and managed to get a 3 month trial (using a different email address. Super sneaky) and now I am completely and utterly in love...and might have to force myself to pay for it once the trial is up.
I trialed Ed Sheerans album before I bought it, and Sias. As well as rekindled my love for A1, and most cheesy music from the 90's and noughties. And this week I treated myself (I know, I am so kind) to a "Workout Playlist".
I thought a good number of songs would be 20. I sometimes time my walks by how many songs I've listened to, or whether or not I've heard a certain song twice, so 20 songs seemed like a great and realistic amount.
You know when you then find other songs you love and songs which would be perfect for a certain playlist? And suddenly you have 55 songs? Yeah? That.

I found myself starting off with the recent dancey KISS ones, and then somehow eventually found myself listening to Aerosmith, Simply Red and some super Latin numbers.
And, best discovery of all was that my most recent voice crush, Sia, is on other songs I LOVE and I never knew it! Wild Ones - Flo Rida and Titanium - David Guetta.

I'm quite proud of my playlist, and my super cool taste in music...I didn't go as far as including a Steps song though, I'll save that for a 'Summer Beach Day Out" playlist...and play it really loud because everyone loves a bit of Steps, right?
