Why do you love that song? That’s what John Benjamin Hickey is challenging his celebrity friends to answer on his new Radio Andy show, My Favorite Song.

Our most beloved music provides a window into our lives — exposing a cherished memory, a special person, a unique experience.

Sarah Jessica Parker joined Hickey on Radio Andy and proved that even an upbeat workout tune can spark interesting memories.

Parker still loves C+C Music Factory’s Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) and reminisced about running to it with her Walkman in the Hamptons.

“It was a very important time in my life,” SJP said.

It became her go-to workout song before filming the 1992 movie Honeymoon in Vegas. She said a producer “was very concerned about me being fit” and sent her a treadmill.

“Dead serious.”

Yeah, we found that pretty hard to believe, too! But despite the treadmill “gift,” the song stuck and is still one of SJP’s favorites.

Listen to all of Sarah Jessica Parker’s favorite songs below (and don’t miss My Favorite Song every Wednesday at 9 am ET on Radio Andy, Ch. 102!).
