Tunes Tuesday:  Super Bowl Motivation

Did you catch SuperBowl LI?  I was having a great time enjoying the Falcons beat the Patriots but unfortunately, they blew a huge lead and lost the game!  I thought the commercials were okay this year, but at least I could count on Lady Gaga giving a great performance!

In light of the recent Super Bowl, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the artists that have performed in the Super Bowl in the past.  Ever since Michael Jackson’s iconic performance in 1993, the halftime show has become one of the highlights of the Super Bowl!  And while some years are better than others, it’s still usually a pretty fun time!

Unfortunately, I don’t have songs from every artist that has ever performed at the Super Bowl Halftime Show.  I’m not a big fan of The Who, U2, or the Rolling Stones.  I would have loved to add Prince, but none of his music is on Spotify…what a crime! Update: Prince is now on Spotify!!  And I didn’t add JT because I’m still not over the wardrobe malfunction…  Hopefully you enjoy a few of these tunes and flash back to some memorable Super Bowl performances over the past 20+ years!

Featured Artists: Super Bowl Half-Time Performers

For this Tunes Tuesday I show some love to some of the greatest SuperBowl Half Time performers over the years!  Check out what you can add to your workout playlist and find more tunes at!

Michael Jackson – Jam, Black or White:  The legend!!  He had a 3-minute standing ovation before he could even start performing!

James Brown – Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine:  He performed this with the Blues Brothers…who knew?

The Temptations – Get Ready:  Taking it to the old school!

Stevie Wonder – Sir Duke:  Stevie is amazing, he can do no wrong!

*NSYNC – It’s Gonna Be Me:  Anything with *NSYNC is a winner in my book!

Aerosmith – Walk This Way:  This was definitely my favorite Super Bowl halftime of all time!

Shania Twain – Man! I Feel Like a Woman!:  Hey I got a little country love!

Madonna – Like a Prayer:  Still a beast.
