Run Hundred's Top 10 Workout Songs For Winter 2012

Hey Party Peeps!

Check out the latest of top 10 workout songs provided by Run Hundred

If you're wondering what the BPM stands for, don't feel bad, I didn't know either.  It's "beats per minute," so you can properly sort your workout mix with authority!  Sorry, had to, make that intensity level. :)

Each song links to a preview and then again to iTunes or Amazon, should you feel the need to own it!

Along with the top 10 list, is some song commentary and a little about Run Hundred; a cool little site that provides a monthly top 10 list for free!  In fact, if you become a subscriber (for free), you can perform your civic duty and determine the top 10!

What makes this site different from other top 10 distributors?
  1. The creator is a  DJ and writes about music for Shape Magazine and Men's Journal, so he might know a thing or two about what he's talking about.  
  2. This site is dedicated to providing the best of the best workout songs, thus making your life easier!  
  3. The commentary is witty!
  4. Run Hundred really really cares if you work out and wants to help keep you motivated!  (Ok, I really don't know that and pretty much made it up, but doesn't it give you a warm, fuzzy feeling?)
My job here is done!

Work It!

The Top 10 Workout Songs For Winter 2012

San Francisco, CA – Jan 11, 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: 
  1. Tim Berg - Seek Bromance (Avicii Vocal Edit) - 127 BPM
  2. Katy Perry - The One That Got Away - 135 BPM
  3. Alexandra Stan - Mr. Saxobeat (Maan Studio Remix) - 126 BPM
  4. Flo Rida - Good Feeling - 129 BPM
  5. Wolfgang Gartner & Will.I.Am - Forever - 128 BPM
