em Does the “Tune of the Week”

I let my coworker pick this week’s tune, partially because I couldn’t find out the name of my original choice in time, and partially because I was honestly stumped. So, she threw it back to my Freshman Year of high school.

Sean Paul – Temperature


Why: It’s a dance floor classic, and its upbeat nature should get you pumped and ready for more.

Best Lyric: “Wanna be the Papa, you can be the Mom…oh, oh!”

When to Sprint: The whole damn song! The tempo is pretty consistent throughout.

Genre: Reggae

I’ve found that I really don’t listen to music much while running. Half the time it is because my phone is too far gone to do so, but the other half is because I just don’t need it anymore.

That doesn’t mean that I will stop posting weekly tunes though.

This week’s tune was played in my Zumba class, and it’s pretty fun and funky.

Rafaga – Para Que Baile Mi Gente

Why: This song has an unpredictable beat…at times it sounds “house-y”, other times it sounds like more traditional spanish music. You will be kept guessing.

Best Lyric: “Quiero que canten conmigo, golpeando las palmas, hechar al olvido”
*Translation: “I want you to sing with me, holding your palms together, forgetting everything”

When to Sprint: 1:46

Genre: cum·bi·a (ˈkəmbēə/ noun: a kind of dance music of Colombian origin, similar to salsa.)

Go forth and Dance-Run! (Don’t act like you’ve never done that!)
