Moving to the Music...
« on: February 07, 2013, 10:05:41 PM »
I have a tiny iPod Nano that I use when working out.  These three songs on my playlist really  motivate me on the Elliptical:

Come out of the Shade -The Perishers
Rock Lobster -B52s
Hey Mr DJ - Backstreet Boys

On the ice, I usually warm up with:

Wonderful Day - O.A.R.
 Middle Of the Night - Sherwood
Call Me, Beep Me - Christina Milan

I also love "Everybody" by the Backstreet Boys. 


What tunes get you rockin' on &/or off the ice?

I was about to give the same answer, and then I saw yours.  :laugh: Yes, this song is really catchy. They played it at the rink the other day, and I did my moves to it. It was fun!

All those years I've been on the ice (basically grew up on it) I've never listened to my iPod...now I wanna start but my question is, don't the earplugs fall out when you jump? :-)
It doesn't matter how bad the day/week is as soon as I'm on the ice and hear the sound of my blades it's all good. Nothing else matters on the ice!

I use cheap ($5) earbuds from Five Below and they stay in fine.  They come with three different size cushions, so you can get them to fit snugly.  I even use them without plugging them in - they make great sound deadeners for our blaring soundsystem.

So using the normal apple ones probably wouldn't work?

No, I tried them.  The Apple earphones just hang on your ears.  Earbuds have silicone bits that fit in tightly.

Tried it Sunday, in fact, when I couldn't find my earbuds.  Apple ones went flying when I spun or jumped.

I normally listen to an audiobook.  If I do listen to music, it's most often Queens of the Stone Age.

Love this thread! I don't listen to music much but I'm thinking it would help keep me focused on practice / working out ... So I'd love to hear what's on your playlists now! :)

I like to use a bluetooth headset where the bulk of the device rests around my neck and only the buds go in my ears.
I listen to 'clean' versions of Kanye, broadway showtunes, some samba. I'm a complicated girl.

I just use it for lap skating though. If I'm practicing anything more than my 8's, I like to be focused.
Yes I'm in with the 90's. I have a skating blog. http://icedoesntcare.blogspot.com/

I practice on public so usually just listen to the radio station while doing moves, etc.  If I'm doing laps I like to pick a Rock My Run station and go from there.  When I have a lesson and practice before the lesson during a freestyle session there has been a lot of Frozen played lately or other musicals.  I do stretching each day and so for that I've been checking out music from our library on my phone.  I tend to pick something and stay with it until it needs returned so for a while it was the Pitch Perfect soundtrack, then Katy Perry, next came Imagine Dragons and then I tried American Authors last week.

I use the JVC sport clip earphones. See attached photo. They sell for about $12 on Amazon.
