I'm rockin'!


So, I've started going back to the gym now. (I know. It's so obvious.) Tonight I was really getting in to it. Pumping some iron. Shocking my abs. Rocking out to some Aerosmith on my mp3 player. Blasting through the pain as AC/DC blasted through the ear buds. Now I'm going. Head bobbing. Biceps aching. Back in the groove and Back in Black. Nothing but me and the iron and ...Moon River? Who put Andy Williams on my playlist?! Something about "my huckleberry friend" zapped all the fire outta me. Not exactly "eye of the tiger" after that. So, is there anything else you think I should avoid listening to in the gym?

Aww, c'mon Todd! I'll bet you had Olivia Newton-John Let's Get Physical right after Andy Williams.

And just when you were feeling short of breath?

Air Supply...

Doris Day's Que SerĂ¡, SerĂ¡, which is not Latin, but Spanish, translating roughly to "what is to be is to be."

Of course, it is often reverse translated to the Spanish as "what is to be is to be - iete."

Definitely don't use any of the following:

Lucy in the sky with diamonds (The Beetles)
Wastin' Away in Margaritaland
Shiny Happy People (REM)
Right Here Waiting (Richard Marx)
All By Myself (Eric Carmen)
You Don't Bring Me Flowers(Diamond/Streisand)
Send in the Clowns (??)
Copacabana (Barry Manilow)
Anything by Boy George

The Beetles? Margaritaland?!

Yeah, what he said.


And for some other, unsolicited, advice, you might want to refrain in the future from getting up on the weight lifting bench and announcing "Hey you guys, let's all form a chorus line and do a medley of Village People songs!" Not-a-good.

Just sayin'...

Don't you have Gordon Lightfoot's If You Could Read My Mind on your i-Pod?

Ok,so I can't spell. I would have looked it up in my Media Player, but I don't have those wimpy songs in there!! I am proud to not know the correct name of "Wasting Away in [whatever]".

You might also want to delete Helen Reddy's Greatest Hits" from the ol' MP3 player.
