Spring of 2019 was an amazing time period for PE music. Vampire Weekend had a stellar album come out. I discovered the band A R I Z O N A and almost all of their songs are perfect for the gym. I dug up some older tracks like Slam by Onyx and Let Her Dance by the Bobby Fuller Four.
About Spicy Lyrics
Everybody has different views on what's okay to play around kids and what isn't. So here's how this works. Below, you'll see all the songs on the playlist. If you click the song, you'll get the lyrics. But not just lyrics. You'll also see questionable content is highlighted like this.
Questionable content is highlighted by word so you can read it for context. The spiciest words are highlighted in red. Medium words are highlighted in orange. And any word highlighted in yellow is either very mild or it's a word like "head" where it could be okay or absolutely not okay, depending on the context.
Spicy Lyrics is a tool I created on my iPhone/iPad to help me quickly see if songs are appropriate to play in the gym. I love it so much, I'm giving it away so you all can use it on your phones.
