Power Walk: For The Jack LaLanne Memorial CD Exchange

Okay, I've been messing with this for weeks, and had 92 songs in the preliminary playlist. Winnowed it down to 20 songs, 1:17 of pure get-your-body-moving music. I hope. At first, my goal was to make walking music for me, hitting the beats at my standard walking speed. Then I did a test run (so to speak) and listened as I walked around outside. Almost slipped on the ice. So I changed tack. A song or two at the beat to establish pace, but basically I just went with foot-stomping rock. The goal is to make you (or at least me) want to keep going. Further goal: Use songs I've never used in a mix before. With exceptions; especially the first song, which I use all the time.

Anyway, unless I tinker with it in the next day or so before Marscon, herein is:

Power Walk

Directions: Warm up. Then set a pace. Then just feel the beat, and move your bod even if it's not a harmonic with the music.
