Whether you’re working on that 10-km time or logging hours at the Rec Center, Emancipator will be your witness while you work on your fitness. Its multi-instrumental electro drive bring out other rhythmic sensations like “Bonobo” and “Boombox.” This station is also recommended for bouldering, CrossFit workouts and mastering that beer pong shot in your spare time.

Ennio Morricone

If you happen to wake up at 2 p.m., have class in 30 minutes and forgot to finish your homework, Ennio Morricone will help you muster a hoorah. The legendary composer behind such infamous spaghetti westerns like the “The Man with No Name” trilogy will also draw beyond high-noon showdowns to give you a fistful of courage.

With the aid of film scores like “The Godfather,” “Braveheart” and “The Last of The Mohicans,” Pandora lets Ennio Morricone charge you with just enough brass to grab attendance points, no matter the cost.

Disney (Children’s) Radio

The Hill showcases the very best of the wild and intoxicated homo sapien in its natural environment. Let Pandora grant you the ultimate soundtrack with Disney (Children’s) Radio for your maximum viewing pleasure.

With a powerhouse of epic and recognizable ballads from Disney movies “Aladdin” to “The Jungle Book,” you can’t go wrong while roaming up Broadway solo with this station blaring. Imagine encountering a group of primitive males carrying each other from neighboring lawns while their lady friends maneuver dangerous ice fields in heels. Now add “The Circle of Life” from “The Lion King” and you have a recipe for awesome.


It is not a good day without Incubus. Period. It is the single best soundtrack for riding the RTD or bombing down the bike path on your road bike.  

Hall & Oates

For argument’s sake, lets say your date went unexpectedly well and that special someone happens to make it back to your humble abode. Nothing kick-starts the magic like a pinch of Hall & Oates. So much so, it is arguably foolproof for a good night. Unless the person you brought home happens to live under a rock, Hall & Oates will concoct a healthy dose of chemistry that can only be derived from hints of “Out of Touch.”
