newsboysThe Newsboys are probably my most favoritest Christian band ever. They are certainly my favorite band to play when I’m exercising. If I were to describe their music in 3 words, I’d say it’s happy, fun, and infectious. Their pop-rock rhythm doesn’t hurt either. (Let me clarify one thing: when I say “Newsboys,” I am referring to the pre-Michael Tait years. Nothing against Michael Tait, I love this new line-up almost as much as the original, but, to me, it’s not really the Newsboys anymore. It’s a new band with a new sound – and I grew up on Peter Furler and John James.)

My Newsboys exercise playlist includes 21 of their best tracks – set to shuffle, it’s almost 80 minutes of pure fun and energy. Crank it up!

  • Beautiful Sound (The title says it all.)
  • Belly of the Whale (Listen carefully to this one – the wordplay is clever and fast.)
  • Breakfast (Another clever song, this fun tune is about my favorite meal of the day.)
  • Entertaining Angels (A bit slower than most of the songs on this list and featuring a vocal solo by guitarist Phil Joel, this one is achingly beautiful.)
  • Good Stuff (The only song on this list that’s not on the Newsboys Ultimate Collection set.)
  • He Reigns (Catchy and fun to sing along to; Newsboys at their finest.)
  • I Fought the La. . . (Hilarious and goofy – but with real meaning behind the crazy lyrics.)
  • I’m Not Ashamed (Every Christian should listen to this song, believe it, and live it.)
  • It Is You (Another slow one, but still an awesome song.)
  • Joy (Absolutely my favoritest Newsboys song ever!)
  • Love Liberty Disco (A celebration of the freedom and love found in being part of the family of God.)
  • Million Pieces (Little kids love to sing along to this one.)
  • Shine (Quintessential Newsboys; possibly their most famous song.)
  • Something Beautiful (The rhythm hooks you, the lyrics hold you.)
  • Spirit Thing (Masters of wordplay, this is another example of the Newsboys’ unsurpassed cleverness.)
  • Step Up to the Microphone (Boldly proclaims what we believe.)
  • Take Me to Your Leader (Perhaps their cleverest and definitely their fastest-sung song of all – listen newsboysclose.)
  • Wherever We Go (Party song to end all party songs.)
  • Who? (A definitive statement of faith set to an unbeatable rock track.)
  • Woohoo (You have to sing along to this one.)
  • You Are My King (A slower-tempo love song to the One who loved us first.)

 

P.S. This is also a great soundtrack for cleaning day. Enjoy!
