55 Smash Hits! - Running Mixes! Tracklist:
I've never been into running due to knee injuries, but when I came across this in iTunes I figured for the price that I couldn't really go wrong. This helped me keep a good pace and keep moving forward and totally changed my run times! Now I feel confident in training for a MARATHON! And with 55 songs you can change it up and not get tired of the same 12 tracks over and over again. Would give 10 stars if I could!
I don't really like this album, the only reason I bought it because it was only 9.99$. I'll give you a list of the songs they did a really good job remaking. -Thrift Shop -Somebody that I used to know -Timber -Wrecking Ball -Sexy and I know it -Blurred Lines -We Found Love -Call Me Maybe -Clarity -Wrecking Ball
Let me first state the obvious: these songs are not the original artists, but at 55 songs for $10 that's obvious. The songs are actually quite good: better than the average cover band you'd see at a bar, but again clearly not the originals. They are also mixes - much like dance versions. They move seamlessly from one song to the next. This worked very well for what I wanted: some upbeat music to run to.
I love these types of songs. If your looking for something up beat and cheep and good for what you paid for this is it. If your unsure listen to the cd first on YouTube then either spend or save your money for something you would like. Thanks for the songs!!!
i don't like the original singers but the newer singers of these songs makes them way way better, if you like the song but not the singer then get these, if you like remixes to then get it, don't see whats wrong with that!
I really love this album. It was a great price and the music is great for when I'm running, but also is just nice to listen to when I want to listen to some exceptional music. Super good and a really great buy!!! 👍🏻
Absolutely horrible. Was hoping to have some new music for my members during our fitness classes and the songs are boring and have random people singing them. Definitely the worst purchase by far.
👍 This is amazing and perfection. I dance to this every Friday and Tuesday night and I have already lost 2 pounds. (Amazing I know) I think this song works like magic (just like tinker bell. I bet she composed it!) I highly suggest getting this! Get the ringtone as well. I don't know why this isn't number 1 on all iTunes Charts!
I have to admit, I wish fitness music makers would include more of these “faster” types of songs. I know most people on here prefer the slow songs…but for those of us that are trying to really push performance and are already fit, it’s hard to find songs that are fast enough to workout to. Then again, it’s hard to make songs that still sound good at 150 bpm+ tempo’s, but still. I appreciate PMW’s effort to at least try to cater to people who want a higher intensity workout.
i rally love this!! this is what I'm looking for- compilation of great remix pop song at affordable price! also it sounds like the original, BRAVO to those music people who made this album! it keeps me running and biking more faster, i can't wait for the next album- please please release it soon.
I bought this album because I saw that it had songs that I had already enjoyed and many others that I thought that I would. However, the remixed versions of all of the songs were both boring and awful to listen to. Instead of the normal base line chords repeating through the whole song in songs like thrift shop or can’t hold us, this album replaces those necessary things with a repetitive dub step rhythmic beat. This same beat is repeated through most of the songs throughout the track without variation such that nearly all the songs sound the same to me. In addition, each song is left with basically only the melody, making it seem simple and boring. Furthermore, any swear word in any of these songs is censored with a dub step techno sound to try to make it seem like the fact that an entire word is missing is not a problem. However, the listener hears a strange space in the words of the song that just sounds bad. Next, the original instrumental accompaniments of many of these songs has been completely removed or replaced with some techno facsimile, so many of the songs have lost their necessary attributes. Lastly, many of the songs feature singers that sound nothing like the original artist or ones that sound ridiculous in their attempts to reproduce the sounds of the artist. When listening to this album I found no song that I enjoyed whatsoever including those that I actually enjoy listening to in their original form. In short, there’s a reason why you get 55 songs for only 10 dollars.
