"Love Lockdown" is the first song that plays in the Gym playlist on my iPod. It's my warm-up song for when I do cardio. I can never just listen to it once. Last night I went to the gym for a workout on the eliptical machine. When my warm-up song was about to end, I started it over. Told myself, 'just one more time.' That time turned into about 6 more times lasting halfway through my hour-long workout. Kanye West could be mumbling that melody in some indeciferable language over those beats and the song would still be addictive...to me at least. How hard was it for me to not sing along out loud?! If you've read my blog long enough, you know I will break out in song at the most random of moments. At the gym, there are so many people around and I don't want to be that guy. So I just lipsync. Which is proably still distracting to anybody who cares to look my way, but it works for me.
"I'm not loving yooou, ' way I wanted tooo/ What I had to dooo, had to run from yooou /I'm in love with yooou, but the vibe is wrooong /And that haunted meee, all the way hooome/ So you never knooow, never never knooow, /Never know enouuugh, 'til it's over looove/ 'Til we lose controool, system overloooad/ Screamin' "Nooo! Nooo! Nooo! No-Nooo!"...
This song also plays on the current Body Pump track at my gym during the ab section. I blast this song and do that section at home every night too. Pretty safe to say, this song (and my whole Kanye playlist) is my current obsession.
Somewhat depressing song and possibly the randomest video ever.
Any unusual favorite tunes on your workout playlist?
