Hugh’s 51 Weeks:51 Hits from the Past – Week32

Music For The Treadmill

This week Hugh’s challenge is to present a song that we like to work out to or that would make a good workout song. Back in the day when I was still going to the gym, I used this song by Anastacia as a warm-up on the treadmill. The beat starts slow but the tempo picks up and gets the feet moving. I love Anastacia. Even though she’s from the United States, many Americans aren’t familiar with her. Her greatest success has come in Europe and Australia. I discovered her in the early 2000’s when listening to Italian radio over the Internet. I hadn’t seen this video before, and it is a bit strange. But it’s the music that counts. From her second album, Freak of Nature, “One Day in Your Life” was released in 2002. It reached number eleven in the UK and the top ten in many European countries.

And if you can’t get enough Anastacia, add “Left Outside Alone” to your treadmill playlist. Released in 2004 from her self-titled album, it topped the charts across Europe and Australia. It remained at number one on the European Billboard singles chart for 15 weeks.

music, nostalgia


Wow, some parts of that second Anastacia video are on a similar theme to the Modanna one I featured this week. I enjoyed both but liked the first video more. Yes, it was unusual, but sometimes that’s what makes something stand out. It’s certainly a great warm up song.
