Soundtrack To: Festival of Sport

With Festival of Sport here, workout music has never become more important.

Music wakes you up. Music keeps you active. Most importantly, music pumps you up for a workout. So what better way to get your morning started than with a little help from us.

Check out Blitz’s playlist to keep you active this week, and forever!

The Vamps – Wake Up

The Vamps don’t get much love in Sydney. It’s a shame because the pop-rock group of youngsters is rather good. Wake Up is no exception, and is catchy although a little bit cliched, but a 2017 morning could do with a bit of energy.

Hey Monday – Run Don’t Walk

Hey Monday were on a hot streak pre-2010. That is, until pop-punk lead vocalist Cassidee Pope abandoned the band and went on to compete in The Voice. Before heading out onto the court or village green this week to compete in your respective sports, Run your way to victory.

BTS – I Need You

Being the host of a Korean Pop music radio show, you can’t blame me for bringing a bit of culture to this playlist. Bangtan Boys haven’t been around for too long, but they’ve taken the Asian music scene by storm, breaking record after record on YouTube. More than that, I Need U is an upbeat, catchy beat that suits your workout at any time of the day. Curl those dumbbells harder and run faster as the chorus kicks in.

Kanye West – Champions

I’m sure we can all agree that Kanye West has too many hype songs to count. Champions is one of the more recent, though unknown gems from the mastermind that is Mr. West. Whether you’re motivating your team to head out onto the field, in need of a pep talk or just want to finish your workout with a bang, keep this track on repeat. Thank me later.

Martin Garrix, Bebe Rexha – In the Name of Love

On that note, I end our list with one of the best mainstream tracks to come out in the past few months.

Listen to more tuuunes, perfect for movin’ and groovin’

About Liam Luangrathrajasombat

At nineteen years old (almost 20), I've started my own website, facebook.com/playbacksociety, sung in front of hundreds of people (terribly), rapped, made an absolute embarrassment of myself and continue to think that I have something meaningful to say.
