Endorphins Kicking with The Chemical Brothers

Written by Suzanne on June 25, 2008

This housewife has way too much junk in her trunk, and that’s not just in my mini-van. So to rid myself of the excess baggage around my midsection I’ve upped my work out schedule. Normally this would be a grueling task worse than 10 loads of laundry but I’m equipped with the endorphin pumping playlist of The Chemical Brothers.

Many of you have probably known about The Chemical Brothers for years but I just heard about them about two years ago when my younger brother had their song Do It Again on his Myspace profile.

I’ve never been one to sweat to the oldies. I love vintage, retro music, but it does nothing to motivate me into burning off calories. The Chemical Brothers alone can fuel your work outs. Their electronic music with pulsing beats help to keep me pushing on past my fatigue level. This is one of my favorite songs and music videos. The message is great too, Get Yourself High:

I’ve heard their live acts are amazing with strobe lights, psychedelic imagery and lasers that project over the crowd. If only I could find an aerobics class like that I’d burn off 1000 calories a day! Too bad we didn’t already have Star Trek like holodecks where we could submerge ourselves into a dance club effect without ordering fattening, and unhealthy beverages. Of course that could always be used the wrong way and we could spend our time goofing around like Captain Piccard, Data, and Riker.
What a waste of technology!

What’s on your playlist; what music gets your body moving?

    Chem Bros are a great band, You will find great songs in every album, ‘the salmon dance’ is a fun song to check out.

    Also a great album for working is Daft Punk’s Discovery.
    And for a nice wind-down electronic groove, check out Lemon Jelly.

  2. Suzanne Says:

    Chembros and Star Trek: TNG — two of my favorite things in one post! Get Yourself High is one of the best progressive beat songs EVER.

    Oh Suzanne, this is getting ridiculous! I can’t believe you posted on the Chemical Brothers – they have been my favorite musical listening experience for the past 10-12 years or so! They just released a new CD called Further that is exceptionally great at getting the body moving. Seriously, look for the video of “Escape Velocity” when it becomes available on YouTube – it’s irresistible.

    In the meantime, check out Believe. Starts out with a mutant aerobicize workout, then turns into a kind of Transformers gone haywire thing!
