My fave walking tracks

Great disco tracks for a good walking pace


  1. YMCA – The Village People. A nice brisk pace without feeling like you’re having to push it.
  2. Canned Heat – Jamiroquai: I love this song so much – reminds me of that great dance scene in Centre Stage
  3. I Gotta Feeling – Black Eyed Peas: If you’ve not yet seen the live Black Eyed Peas concert with Oprah Winfrey, you gotta go check it out on Youtube like, NOW! And you’ll love this song foreverafter, if you don’t already.
  4. Shake Your Groove Thing – Peaches & Herbs: This is always the one that I feel I need to start running too – it’s pretty fast for walking, so I feel a bit like I’m tripping over my toes, but if I can keep up, then it’s not a huge stretch to fall into a gentle jog.  Walking very fast after running to this feels like a breeze.
  5. September – Earth Wind & Fire: A good one for warming up or cooling down – a fairly easy pace, but still brisk
  6. I Love the Nightlife – Alicia Bridges: A good hip-swingin’ choon at a great pace.
  7. Young Hearts Run Free – Candi Station: another good one for warming up or cooling down.
  8. It’s Raining Men – Weather Girls: too fast to walk to, to slow to run to.  However, the original version by the Weather Girls has all disco soul a girl could ask for – it gets my blood pumping!
  9. We Are Family – Sister Sledge: great for the end of the walk – the pace is a little slower so I can lengthen my stride and swing my hips a bit, which helps loosen me up.
