So you're bopping along to the hottest hits in your turbokick class-do you actually listen to the lyrics (if they play them)? I was just reading this hilarious blog and had to admit I'm one of the ones bopping along to "Low" and had no idea what the lyrics actually were. lol Check this out...


...I know, I know, in a world where children are dying in sweat shops & I still buy sandals at Wal-Mart, I choose music to get really worked up about. But here's my problem - I love music. All kinds of music - my two favorite genres are Punk/Emo, like AFI or My Chemical Romance, and anti-folk like Joshua Radin and Regina Spektor (P.S. Her new album is really good!) . And I cannot get through a workout without it. The worst part of running long races for me isn't the hills or the heat or the surprise Gatorade on the water table (try throwing that over your head) but the fact that I can't use my MP3 player. And let's face it, group fit classes like BodyPump, Hip Hop Hustle and my beloved Turbokick are defined by their great music. Music, I might add, that offers to "fold" me "like a pornography poster" right after rapping a list of sexual positions that would make the Kama Sutra take notes...Read More: A Hoochie Trapped in a Feminist's Body

I rarely listen to the lyrics. I have a student in class who will point out what they're actually saying on the songs, or what they mean. LOL, I'm obviously fitness related because I thought Sexy Back was about getting a sexy back like doing rows or something. And, I still can't figure out Viva La Vida.

I don't listen to the lyrics, either.

LOL I've done the same thing-gone back and listened to the actual lyrics of my favorite songs from high school and some are quite shocking. Obviously my mother didn't listen to the lyrics either. ;)
