Today, we have a fun flat road from a band that pioneered the London acid jazz scene in the late 80's. Later they developed a sophisticated classic soul sound that's funky and motivating for our classes. Clocking in at 4:46 and rpm's of 97, I've been using this song as the last song in a 20 minute cadence build to threshold. Starting at 80 rpm's and building to 97 rpm's, this song perfectly finishes the build to anaerobic threshold. I use this cadence build smack in the middle of a 60 minute class.
I also love, love, love when I find a free download from SoundCloud that's every bit as fabulous as the original :).
So, here's The Brand New Heavies and "Sometimes":
