All That Funky Stuff

When working out at my gym this past winter, I frequently became a tad anguished by the music they would blast. Part of my annoyance was the choice of songs as well as the fact that I'd hear the same ones (Black Eyed Peas "I Gotta Feeling" was probably the main culprit) over and over. I realize the radio station (and the gym) aren't targeting my age demographic, but, well, .... I still wish they'd play some different music. In the spirit of being constructive, here's my alternative - a female artists pop, funk, punk, disco mashup of sorts. I'll put up volume 2 next week.

(P.S. I apologize for the name - I couldn't think of anything else. :)

very very good stuff as usual!

PS:no connection but Garland Jeffrey's just put out an impressive cd 9 years or so after his last release.

Antoine from France.

See now you've piqued my interest - I'm going to have check out some Garland Jeffreys (though I figure I'll start with his older stuff).
