i finally made the cd i'd promised trainer boy for so long… it was eclectic, and as i was checking it in the car, i realized i hadn't really mixed all the songs i'd intended to, and also i'd mixed in some red hot chili peppers by accident…
here is the playlist for the poor guy:
nick Lowe's Cruel to be Kind….
with lyrics like this: Oh, I can't take another heartache,
Though you say you're my friend, I'm at my wits' end!
You say you're love is bona fide,
But that don't coincide with the things that you do
And when I ask you to be nice, you say
You've gotta be
Cruel to be kind in the right measure,
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign,
Cruel to be kind means that I love you,
Baby, you've gotta be cruel to be kind.
Well I do my best to understand dear,
But you still mystify, and I want to know why.
I pick myself up off the ground
To have you knock me back down again and again!
And when I ask you to explain, you say repeat chorus etc etc etc
i figure i can't lose, unless he takes the i love you part too seriously….but he is a trainer and often very cruel….
Harold melvin & the Blue Notes Wake up everybody
Red hot Chili Peppers :Californication this was the oops but its a good song, on many of my playlists, just didn't intend it for there…
Judith Sephuma's le Tsephile Mang nice South African music with an easy relaxed rhythm
Jimmy Cliff The Harder theycome, the Harder they fall.
The Jacksons Enjoy yourself (love the section where michael in pre child molesting days shouts out "you can do it!" very motivating)
jacob "killer" Miller and inner circle's Tenement Yard…
The Tramps Disco Inferno.. know by most for the infamous "Burn Baby Burn" phrase, which has been uttered a time or two by trainer boy… he asked for the inferno.
Al Green's Play to Win
Safari Sound Band: pole pole in swahili.. "polay polay" meaning slow slow… apt for a running tune right??
Bob Marley and the Wailers Dracula a nice funky reggae tune instrumental with a phenomenal bass line.
Grateful Dead The Golden Road
Michael jackson, again pre child lovin stage, Don't stop until you get enough this song always comes near the end of a run…
Aaron Carters Life is a party….
Do you think trainer boy will speak to me again after this??? and I also wonder what does this play list say about me???
We spoke for about three minutes, during which time he made me feel absoloutely special. What a nice quality he has in that way. All the other trainers spoke to me, even Chad, the one I fired, but mostly they looked at me like i was to be pitied… TB just asked, how ya feeling slacker? He grinned when I showed him my wavey fingers and said my hand therapists are freaks for telling me i'd not catch a medicine ball for years…he had clients lined up until like 4 pm, so I left…but it was still a huge lift to see him. I'll be really bereft when he goes to grad school….
my pins get pulled on Thursday the 21st… I think i'll go back to the gym on the 22nd,…unless i have to go back to work! can't wait until my hand feels less sore.
I miss : opening cans. grooming the dog with two hands, and the medicine ball….
but not really the squats yet….though i'll be doing double time on them…
