Sweatin' to the Showstoppers

Whenever I see workout playlists, there's always something glaringly missing - show tunes! There are some show tunes that can get my blood pumping as fast as any good rock, pop, or R n B tune. I'm posting lyric videos for most of them, which may be boring, but they don't have the distractions of the scene. So, without further ado, here are my top favorite workout showtunes.

"Greased Lightning" from Grease

A bit obvious, but a real classic.

"You Can't Stop the Beat" from Hairspray

This one's just really fun!

"One Jump Ahead" from Aladdin

Perfect for running. Warning: It can be hard not to act out the lyrics while working out!

"Mean Green Mother from Outer Space" from Little Shop of Horrors

One of my faves! "Some Fun Now" and the title song are also fun, but this one rocks hardest, thanks in large part to Levi Stubbs.

"My Shot" from "Hamilton"

The newest addition to my workout mix - really inspirational, motivational, patriotic, and smart - I've literally had it stuck in my head for days!

And that's it! Thanks for reading and let me know what you think (and if you work out to any showtunes, please share!)
