New Year, New Resolutions, New … MUSIC! I had been really dragging on my playlist (I made it in September and it was still going in December.) But no more. Using my iTunes library and some suggestions on Spotify, I created a whole new set of jams to rock at the gym. My current fave? “Miami” by Will Smith. An oldie, but goodie. Incidentally, I also received an offer from a representative at the site: http://www.RunHundred.com to see the top songs for working out RIGHT NOW based on real user data. Check out what they had to say below. I’m glad to have so many extra options! I downloaded at least two of these upon seeing the list myself 🙂
The Top 10 Workout Songs For Winter 2012
Traditionally, winter is the time of year when folks find it hardest to get out and exercise. In the hopes of keeping folks motivated, readers from Run Hundred–the web’s most heavily-trafficked site for workout music–were polled regarding their favorite, current workout songs. The resulting top 10 list has a little of what you’d expect—and a little you might not. Flo Rida, who’s no stranger to this list, shows up in two recent tracks. Enrique Iglesias continues his transition from balladeer to club rocker. And Kelly Clarkson, after faltering with the first single off her new album, bounced back ferociously with the second.
As for surprises, they’re mostly entries from folks relatively new on the dance scene. Highlights include songs from Tim Berg (who remixed his own track under his Avicii moniker), Skrillex (whose collaboration with Kaskade is the first dubstep track ever the make the Top 10), and Wolfgang Gartner (who’s made the chart with a little help from the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am).
Here’s the full list:
