Perfect Summer Soundtrack - Week 9

Here's an odd one, folks.  I've worked in a gym over the last few years and I've learned a thing or two about what people want to hear when they want to work out.  The oddest mix of the bunch belongs to the Water Aerobics crowd who mainly resort to bad disco music.  Disco Inferno?  No thanks.  Here's a playlist for the Water Aerobics crowd.  Please try something different for a change!

The Water Aerobics Playlist

So, I know, this isn't really my target audience.  Where I work, the majority of people who do Water Aerobics are white and over the age of 60.  But I've taken that into account when assembling the playlist.  Some of the songs were more popular in their heyday than they are now.  None of the songs are so "over the top" that they will flat out hate it, nor do any of them contain profanity or suggestive themes.  But it is music that any hipster can appreciate.  So even if you're not planning on turning 60 soon, it's still a great playlist.

Week 1 - Rooney's Self-Titled Debut (Beach Trip, Road Trip, Skateboarding)
Week 2 - The Picnic Playlist
Week 3 - Of Montreal: The Sunlandic Twins (Road Trip Sing-a-longs, House Parties, Frisbee Tossing)
Week 4 - The 4th of July Party Playlist
Week 5 - The Pump Me the F*** Up! Playlist (Mountain Climbing, Fight Clubbing, Wakeboarding, Kayaking, Parachuting, Murdering, Running)

Week 6 - The Elected: Sun Sun Sun (Road Trip)
Week 7 - The Bike Ride Through the Country Playlist
Week 8 - Incubus: Morning View (Skateboarding, Surfing, Beach Trip, Road Trip)
