By request from my best friend back in Michigan, I’ve selected a song that she can use to please all comers of all ages in her spin class. Despite having a 7+ month old and a full-time job, she teaches spinning at a time that most, myself included, would consider the middle of the night. Such motivation!
As soon as she asked, I wrote down ‘Teenage Wasteland.’ Then I told my husband about her request and before I could explain that I already had the problem solved he said ‘Teenage Wasteland.’ Same wavelength everybody! Aren’t we cute?
I initially added this to my master running playlist over 5 years ago when my sister was training for a half-marathon and recommended this classic for training on hills. It’s seriously a motivational jackpot. The initial build-up, the incredible vocals, the liberal use of synthesizer. Enjoy.
