Songs like Survivor - Eye of the TigerPODIUMBOUNDdotCA

The ladies I teach have asked me to get away from the techno stuff I have gotten used to playing and get more into songs like Survivor - Eye of Tiger which I know of from my football days and sometimes play.

But they asked for this band called Led Zepellin and music like that? Just kidding... I've heard of them but in that kinda time span does anyone have any ideas for music that has the motivational beat that Survivor - Eye of the Tiger has?

sounds to me that they are craving some 80's music. Go get any 80's CD in the music store and I'll bet they will be happy. Also tell them to bring some music and you will include it in a session. You can mix your own CD's right?

never heard of "a band called Led Zepplin"? They are one of the most influential bands of all time. Not saying you have to like them, but I guarantee if you heard Kashmir or Stairway to heaven you would know who they are. As far as Eye of the Tiger, I would not come to your class if that is what you play. Wow that is some horrible stuff. LOL
You missed the just kidding :) nmPODIUMBOUNDdotCA

Oh why did you have to mention the name of that horrible song? I finally got that annoying anthem out of my head after about 20 years of pain. Does that song really motivate you?

P.S. The messages about music for your classes are getting a bit old IMHO.

I'm not even 20 years old yet so it can't both me :)

My wife dragged me to a Survivor / Loverboy show about a month ago. The song remained the same, the bands carried a little more pudge around their middles and they lost the big hair. I won't admit it to her but I had a good time.
that sounds like a slow root canal (nm)ColnagoFE

I stopped going to spinning class because the instructors wouldn't stop playing such dated, horrible music. Most of the participants were young (20 somethings) yet we were listening to 'eye of the tiger' type POS.

If they had played Zep I might have cancelled my membership all together.

Just my 2 cents.

If you want "motivational beat songs" like Eye of the Tiger, you should really look into making a mix of the following: GG Allin, and El Duce and the Mentors. They provide a really great beat, as well as an athletic, inspirational message! The ladies in your spinning class would really love 'em--I know mine did!
Don't forget GWAR for an athletic spin classMr Good

The lyrics are not as inspirational as the Mentors, but the beat will really get your class going!
Good point, boysmickey-mac

Clearly, the Mentors and GWAR were inspired by Survivor and, specifically, by Eye of the Tiger. It's obvious in their music and lyrics. However, for a really good workout session, I'd recommend just about anything by the Residents or the Fall. It's just amazing how much inspirational, heart-pumping music has been put out in the past 20 years.

Now that brings back some memories. Gonna have to dust off my copy of Grotesque...after the gramme. Totally Wired indeed...

Yes-uh, clearly-uh the Mentors-ah were inspired by Survivor-uh. Yes-uh...Oh yes-uh.

you have terrible taste in music, too. Are you trying to drive people away? I'd rather jog than spin listening to sh!t like that!
You are a true Schlemiel!!

I'll admit I don't think people come to my class very often for the music. They come to get a kick ass workout.

"Here I go again" - Whitesnake ... pretty much anything from Tesla's Mechanical Resonance albumn (Rock me, Comming at Ya Live, etc.) ... oh yeah, mid 80s perm-rock at its greatest!

Nick -- Not really sure what they're looking for, whether "insirational" or a particular beat.

Europe -- Final Countdown

Disturbed -- Down with the Sickness

Queen -- Bicycle Race

Ramstein -- Duhast

.38-Special has some good ones as well.
