Halloween Spin Playlist

Here are the songs that ended up on my Halloween spin playlist this year (2010). The first part is for the 40-minute class, the rest are included in the one hour class.

  • This is Halloween – Nightmare Before Christmas (get settled just before class starts)
  • Werewolves of London – Warren Zevon (Warm up)
  • (Don’t Fear) The Reaper – Blue Oyster Cult (Sprint Drills)
  • Sympathy for the Devil – The Rolling Stones (4 x 1’ hills; 2 seated 2 standing; progressively more steep, 20” rest in between)
  • Dragula – Rob Zombie (Jumps – Kick ass!)
  • Dead Man’s Party – Oingo Boingo (Sprint drills)
  • Bat Out of Hell – Meatloaf (Sprint build up/attack hills)
  • The Time Warp – Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack (Uh – this was kinda jumps, but I don’t quite have it worked out yet, and by this point everyone’s TIRED)
  • Highway to Hell – Patty (From a tribute album – this version is a nice, though peppy, cool down song)

For a one hour class add in various sprint/hill permutations:

  • Thriller – Michael Jackson (Jumps. Throw candy at participants who join Thriller dance hand movements J )
  • Bloodletting (The Vampire Song) – Concrete Blond
  • Sweet Dreams Are Made of This – Marilyn Manson (Hill. It’s such a creepy version of this song!)
  • Atom Bomb, Atomix 1 – Fluke (Tempo/road ride with rolling hills – keep cadence.)
  • The Forgotten People – Thievery Corporation (Cool Down)
  • Bad Things – Jace Everett (Cool Down)
  • Fresh Blood – Eels (Cool Down)

Atom Bomb has some strong language but if you’re working them hard enough (!) people may not notice enough to be offended (if they are prone to that kind of thing). Besides, we are all adults in my class, and in the weight room next to my class. You can find a sanitized version on The Saint soundtrack, apparently. I haven’t had a complaint (yet) so I’m keeping my profane version for now.
