Spooky scary spin


Did I scare you?


Okay then. I’ll try harder next time.

Welp, it’s almost Halloween time. Do you have your costumes ready? We do! We are having a little Halloween shindig at our place on Saturday and our first Halloween costume (the one that required me to sew a new zipper) is pretty much ready to go. It’s a secret, so I can’t tell you what we are going as. Ah, the suspense!!!

I was so excited that I got to teach a Halloween class this year! Yesterday, I subbed for the official Y Halloween class. The class was bummed the regular instructor wasn’t there (they were excited for her costume), but they put up with me and my antics. I did dress up a bit. 80’s spinning instructor, anyone??? Let me tell you, wearing leggings during class get HOT, but I’ll take any chance I can get to wear my highlighter yellow leggings.

The class went well, although when I asked them “Who you gonna call”, they did not want to yell “Ghostbusters”. I mean….c’mon. I rarely ask for class participation, but how can you resist yelling out Ghostbusters??? Thunder stealers. Oh well, some classes are vocal and some are not. The class was fun, but it was hard work too. The perfect combo!

I did use some of the songs that I posted as ideas last year. I also had some music on before class started…Time Warp, MC Hammer’s Addams Family, and Hungry Like the Wolf. I’ve got some ideas for next year too! So what did the final playlist look like? Here you go….

Yes, Werewolf Barmitzvah made the cut! I think that song is hilarious. Not sure anyone else got it or recognized it, but oh well, we were stretching anyways.

I got super sweaty during this class (both times- I taught it last night and this morning…mama’s legs are tired). It was a good mix of intervals and hills. Bad Moon Rising was our little break halfway through class. It was really fun to put together this playlist. Some honorable mentions that will probably be on the playlist next year will be:

  • Long Road to Hell by Avicii
  • Howlin’ for You by The Black Keys
  • Last Night Daft Punk Saved my Life by Scott Melker

What do you guys think? What would you have put on your Halloween playlist?

I hope everyone has an awesome Halloween! Stay safe and warm! Especially if you live in Tennessee– they are forecasting snow for Saturday. Craaaazy!
