Sonata No. 2

 (photo via lululemon)

I have a ridiculous amount of music.  And lately, I've been setting my iPod to "Never Played" in an effort to listen to something new.  I especially like this at the gym: I rediscover some old gems, get to jam out and keep myself interested during my workout.

Do you know what can happen when you do this?

I was stretching, thinking "I know this song...but from where?"  And then I realized it was "Sonata No. 2 In B Minor For Piano, Op. 35: IV."  Also known as "The Funeral March."

Stretching.  To the funeral procession song.

No wonder working out seems so daunting.

  1. Ha! That's great. It happens to me more often than not - the realizing I know a song and not knowing why thing.. not the funeral stretching thing..

  2. Too funny. =)

    I could totally see myself doing that... For instance, the other day, I grabbed the Grease CD (needed to use a CD since my iPod shuffle has a book 'in it' and I don't want to lose my plae!... So, anyways, I thought- I never listen to this one, this will be good workout music. Most of the songs are slow, at least in the beginning. Not a good workout CD after all :).

  3. Lol. Lesson learned. Sometimes I try setting my ipod on shuffle to hear new things and then remember why I got to what I like. Everything just doesn't hit the spot.

  6. Hilarious! That's a good idea though, to listen to those rarely played songs on the iPod

  7. You have two great ideas in this post. 1) Working out and 2.) Listening to throw back songs. Good job. I will try to do at least one of these today. :)

    I accidentally set my whole i-pod onto shuffle today instead of my usual playlist, and I agree, it was wonderful to listen to old songs and even find some new ones!
