Spring 2019 Carnival Fun Playlist

The weather is finally getting warmer in NYC, and I cannot wait until it’s consistently 60-70° F out!

Springtime brings the gorgeous weather, pretty flowers, and fun outdoor carnivals and fairs. I’ve created a spring playlist with a carnival theme for your spring enjoyment. From Ferris wheels to carousels, let’s take a ride with these ten carnival-themed songs:

1. Fairground, Leo Kalyan. “Lose your cares in the afterglow, and spin me around, round.”

2. Carousel, Skylar Spence. This tune will have you “spinnin’ like a carousel.”

3. Round & Round, Selena Gomez & The Scene. Don’t go getting dizzy on me now.

4. Mannequin, Britney Spears. Don’t “scream your lungs out” on that ride.

5. All That’s Left, Manila Killa ft. Joni Fatora. “When we go ’round and ’round on this carousel.”

6. Carousel (Bobby Green Remix), Melanie Martinez. Go ahead, just dance your way through spring with this beat.

7. Merry Go Round, Kacey Musgraves. Doesn’t Kacey go so well with a beautiful spring day at the carnival?

8. The Real Thing, Phoenix. “Turn the eternal carousel on.”

9. Reforget, Lauv. But whatever you do, don’t let your “head [spin] like a carousel, over and over.”

10. All Stars, Martin Sloveig ft. ALMA. A spring anthem.

Happy Spring!

Mid-Spring 2017 Dance Workout Playlist

So it’s the middle of spring and you’ve kind of been falling short on your workout goals. It’s okay!

Instead of forcing yourself to run a certain amount of miles everyday to burn calories, turning on some fierce Zumba and soca beats and dancing up a storm in your room for 45 minutes might help you burn fat more effectively.

In other words, why dread shredding the pounds when you can just dance them off?

Here are 14 of my favorite dance workout songs for getting that summer bod ready:

1. Shape of You (Latin Remix), Ed Sheeran ft. Zion & Lennox. Let’s warm this workout up with a little bit of praise for your present (and future) body. 

2. Differentology, Bunji Garlin. You ready?

3. Sexy and I Know It (Glee Cast Version) ft. Ricky Martin. “Menealo, man, yeah.”

4. That Love, Shaggy. The only thing you won’t be missing are those pounds!

5. Fever, Vybz Kartel. Are you feeling the fever yet?

6. Get Ugly, Jason Derulo. “Let’s lose control.”

7. Watch Out For This (Bumaye), Major Lazer ft. Busy Signal, The Flexican & FS Greenu. Can your waistline resist?

8. Velocidade 6, Mulher Melancia. Time to pop that booty at full speed!

9. LUV, Torey Lanez. “I don’t know ’bout you” but burning calories “ain’t a crime.”

10. El Amor, El Amor, Zumba Fitness. Is this workout making you feel cuckoo?

11. Bicycle Ride, Vybez Kartel. “Ride ’til the bicycle bruk off, bruk off.”

12. Sorry, Justin Beiber. Never apologize for losing weight.

13. Perfect Strangers, Jonas Blue. “Come on, come on, come on,” keep moving!

14. Closer, The Chainsmokers ft. Halsey. Cool it down now.

Happy spring workout!
