Best Christmas Music for Spinning or Indoor Cycling
I’m checking the stats for this blog and my friend Shannon’s blog and I’m seeing that a LOT of people who are doing Google searches for “best Christmas music for spinning” or “best Christmas music for indoor cycling” are finding our sites. My fear is that the majority of the folks doing these searches are spin instructors trying to find something seasonal for a class. So, since you asked …
THE BEST CHRISTMAS MUSIC FOR SPINNING IS A COMPLETE ABSENCE OF CHRISTMAS MUSIC
For one solid month, we are assaulted with Christmas music in stores, restaurants, bars, coffee joints, on the radio, in elevators and in people’s homes. Do people REALLY need yet one more source? I can say with great certainty that they do not.
There are lots of reasons to dislike Christmas music. Consider the people in your class who work retail and have to listen to this shit for 8+ hours a day ON TOP OF all the nonsense they have to endure from idiot customers this time of year. Consider those who don’t celebrate Christmas. Consider those who simply dislike Christmas and everything it has come to represent. You have an opportunity to provide all these poor souls with the brief respite they may desperately need. For the love of humanity, give them that hour of peace!
Beyond that, let’s face the facts — most Christmas music just plain sucks. This goes double for the up-tempo tunes that would be the most likely candidates for spinning. Think about it. If there were a lot of really good ones, you probably wouldn’t need to be searching online for ideas. So please, do us all a favor and “Just Say No” to Christmas music in spinning class.
