Run like an Underwood with Spotify’s ‘House of Cards’ playlists
Spotify is getting America back on the track with two House of Cards themed playlists sure to motivate any fan to run like the Underwoods.
Just in time for the Season 5 release of Netflix’s political drama on Tuesday, Spotify is giving anyone who’s ever wondered what music Frank and Claire were blasting on one of their intense runs or workout sessions a real treat.
Frank’s playlist is no doubt fit for an ambitious, no-nonsense president with a mix of patriotic songs, Ozzy Osbourne, Iron Maiden, and Queen, while his wife’s is the epitome of female strength and sassiness, featuring iconic tracks by Tina Turner and Beyoncé.
Both, naturally kick things off with Frank Sinatra’s “My Way,” the ideal anthem for the determined Underwood power couple, but there are a few hidden references, like the song “Peaches,” which is likely a nod to the humongous peach statue in Frank’s hometown, Gaffney, South Carolina.
Here’s Frank’s playlist:
And here’s Claire’s list of power tracks:
Now it should be noted that some of these tracks are not the best. We could probably have done without Abba’s “The Winner Takes It All” and JoJo’s “Too Little Too Late …” but hey, these tracks just represent the very complex personalities of the Underwoods I suppose.
The only question that remains is which House of Cards lead are you more musically compatible with? Once you’re done sitting on the couch for hours binging Season 5, why not go for a nice run to get your blood pumping again and take a listen?
