If you were in class yesterday or you read my Track List from yesterday's class, you saw that I played some Madonna in honor of her 63rd birthday which was Monday, August 16th. I also played some Arethe in celebration of the release of "Respect", a movie about Aretha's life starring Jennifer Hudson. Well, I continued that today. And then some. I opened class with a video of Madonna's "Like A Prayer". I then followed that with Lil Nas X's "Industry Baby". I think that Lil Nas X reminds me of Madonna a little bit in the way that they both have made big splashes with elaborate videos that have been received quite controversially. As my HIIT The Road classes play a variety of music from the recent decades, I felt that even a cover or remake of a classic can take us back to that time when the original was released. "Don't Stop" was originally by Fleetwood Mac. DJ D-Sol has covered and remade it. I think his version is a lot of fun! Side note, DJ D-Sol is actually David Solomon, an investment banker and the CEO of Goldman Sachs! Interesting! Just like I try to make my classes. Interesting! And fun! And challenging! And intense! And of course, safe by focusing on form. If you haven't been in a while, come join me! I hope to see you soon!

In good health!

You'll notice that I played a couple of Cher songs back to back this morning. Well, it was a way to celebrate her 75th birthday which was last Thursday, May 20th. She is another one of those special artists that have withstood the test of time, defied all odds and stayed popular, successful and relevant over several decades! (Other artists that have achieved similar success are Dolly Parton, Madonna, Tina Turner, Diana Ross and Barbra Streisand.) I have certainly played Cher's music in the Ride with Tommy! very often over the years. So, thank you for the music, Cher!

I started this morning's class off with 2 Donna Summer videos as it was 9 years ago yesterday, May 17th, that we lost Donna Summer to lung cancer. She was a musical icon, the Queen of Disco, whose music I played very often in the Ride with Tommy!

It's at this time of year that I always recount one of my favorite (and gayest!) memories. I attended an event called One Mighty Weekend at the DisneyWorld Resort in Orlando, Florida, in June, 2007. Donna Summer performed at one of the outdoor events on that Saturday night. She sang her hit, "MacArthur Park" with the famous lyric, "someone left my cake out in the rain." And guess what? It was indeed raining! She had her person holding an umbrella over her during her performance. I was surrounded by good friends (including my future husband!) at an amazing event listening to one of my favorite artists ever! In the rain! Right before an incredible fireworks display. It was pretty awesome.

One more Donna Summer memory I have involves my birthday my freshman year in high school. One of my best friends, Julie, gave me the 12" single LP (yes, the LP!) of the duet, "No More Tears (Enough is Enough)" by Donna Summer and Barbra Streisand. I think I probably still have it. And it is still one of my favorites to this day!

So it's for these reasons that I started class this morning with a couple of Donna Summer videos. It means a lot to me. I enjoy hearing her music, and I especially enjoy playing her music in class! So thank you for the music, Donna Summer!

Due to circumstances beyond my control (namely, school is going back to full-time, in-person classes Monday thru Thursday starting tomorrow morning and I have to take the kids to school as my husband is out of town and the sitter is unavailable), I will not be able to be there for my regularly scheduled Ride. Thanks to Jamie for agreeing to cover my class! I hope you all have a great Ride with her! She's a lot of fun! (And btw, Jamie is one of the first instructors to ask me to sub her class when I first started teaching spin...oh about 22 years ago...at Meridien Sports Club in Century City...the circle of life...the circle of the Ride!)

I'll be back in the instructor saddle this Thursday morning at 9:00am as I will be subbing for the awesome Guy B. I hope to see you then!

In good health,

Tommy
