I go to Pilates classes 2-3 times a week.  I love my teacher ( she is ten years older than me and can easily whup me and everyone else in the room…damn) but her choice of music during class is dreadful.  Think of trying to do The Teaser or  One Hundreds during a medley of the Three Tenors, The Moody Blues and random wind chime/ pan pipe audio files. Yeah, no.

So I decided to make some CDs for her and the class, based on certain themes, as a way to stay focused (and to mask the sound of people gasping for air…)

For example, here is the playlist of songs (and the artists)  I created with the title of “Breathing“:

“Breathe” (2 a.m.) Anna Nalick

“Just Breathe” Telepomusik

“Every Car You Chase” Party Ben

“Breathe Again (Studio Version)” Sara Bareilles

“I Dare You to Move” Switchfoot

“Just Breathe” Rachel Fuller

“Barely Breathing” Duncan Sheik

“Breathe Me” Sia

“Blue Lips” Regina Spektor

“Breathe In” Frou Frou

“Harder to Breathe” Maroon 5

“Lose My Breath” Destiny’s Child

And this one, appropriately entitled “Songs of Hurt & Pain

“Misery” Glee cast (yeah, talk about miserable)

“King of Pain” The Police

“Long Line of Pain” Amos Lee

“It’s Only Pain” Kathy Melua

“Hurts So Good” John Mellencamp

“Haven’t Got Time for the Pain”  Carly Simon

“Get Off On the Pain” Gary Allan

“Hurt” Johnny Cash

“Love Hurts” Incubus

“Everybody Hurts” REM

“Something for the Pain” Bon Jovi

“What Hurts the Most” Rascall Flatts

“Used to the Pain” Keith Urban

The teacher now plays them all the time, but now I am getting bored (again).  So I am working on a new theme “Crying,” because after the winter break hiatus, that is indeed what I will be doing once I am back in class.

I am looking for song suggestions… anyone?
