Underwater Audio Music: Your Monthly Playlist

Underwater Audio Music: Your Monthly Playlist

Welcome to Underwater Audio’s blog feature: Your Monthly Playlist! Every month, we’ll be providing a customized playlist, complete with information on where to purchase the songs and, since we’re big believers in the power of music in exercise, ideas on how to use them in your workout. Do you have a favorite song, album, or playlist? We’d love to hear about it. Share your favorites, or request a certain genre or theme, in the comments below!

Valentine’s Day: Love it or hate it

Valentine’s Day. Here in the US of A, it has become a day rife with expectations. Show someone you love them! With, naturally, gifts: chocolates, flowers, cards, expensive meals, even jewelry.

On the one hand: how great is that? Get gifts, celebrate your beloved, revel in the life-affirming miracle that is LOVE!!

On the other? Talk about a lot of pressure. What if you’re not in a romantic relationship? What if someone has expectations you fail to meet, or you go over the top, or your efforts are rejected? What if YOU have expectations and get let down? It’s a recipe for disaster.

So, in honor of a day that can swing to some real extremes, we have two very special playlists for you. One is chock full of love songs: sexy, romantic, celebratory. The other? Just might help get you through a tough day.

As always, we’ve included times and beats per minute to help you use them to best effect for your workout. And we’ve included a Spotify Playlist as well, so you can listen now! (Ever wished you could listen to a Spotify playlist while you swim? Delphin, our latest product in the works, is about to make that dream a reality.)
