100 Workout Songs for Your iPod. I went running today (just a little… mixed in with my morning walk) for the first time in a long time.

100 Workout Songs for Your iPod

It felt great. Here are the songs on my high impact cardio playlist… either for running, or elliptical or bike or walking anything else cardio. You may or may not have my taste in music. I like quite the variety. George Frederic Handel. Foreign English Sounds. We’ve all heard examples of fake Chinese or German from speakers who lack familiarity with either language.

Foreign English Sounds

While typically cringe-worthy, these examples do raise interesting questions regarding our own language. What does English sound like to non-English speakers? After more than 40 years, Adriano Celentano’s “Prisencolinensinainciusol” remains one of the most illuminating examples. Prepare to rock out and sorta kinda rap with an Italian comedian: Debussy, Arabesque #1, Piano Solo (animation ver. 2) Epsilon (Ambient) Music for the reluctant studier.
