Looking for some songs to add to your 2014 playlist? Check out the release from Run Hundred below as well as their top 10 list from 2013!

The end of the year is a great time to survey workout music for two reasons. First, it provides a chance to look back at the year that’s winding down and reminisce.      Second, the new year is when folks make resolutions–often to get into better shape–and the recap includes a few songs that might help with that.

The list below reflects more than 70,000 votes placed last year on Run Hundred—the web’s most heavily-trafficked workout music blog. According to the folks polled there, the most popular artists in the gym this year were David Guetta and Pitbull. They’re the only two artists who appear in the list twice—though they managed this feat with the help of collaborators like Christina Aguilera, Ke$ha, Rihanna, Akon, and Ne-Yo.

As is the case each year, there are some workout music staples present in the list. There are chart hits—like those from Flo Rida and Jason Derulo. There are hits that got beat out by their own remixes—like those from Lady GaGa and Avicii. There are monster hits that didn’t make the cut—like Katy Perry’s “Roar” and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” Lastly, there are songs that got more love in the gym than on the radio—like Fergie, Q-Tip, and GoonRock’s contribution to The Great Gatsby.

On the whole, there should be a few songs here you loved, a few you missed, and a few that have been given a makeover since you last heard them. If you’re looking for a few tunes to jump start the new year—and possibly a new you—the list below provides 10 great places to start.

Pitbull & Christina Aguilera – Feel This Moment – 137 BPM

Selena Gomez – Come & Get It (Dave Aude Club Remix) – 130 BPM

Fergie, Q-Tip & GoonRock – A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got) – 130 BPM

Flo Rida – How I Feel – 128 BPM

Lady GaGa – Applause (DJ White Shadow Trap Remix) – 141 BPM

Jason Derulo – The Other Side – 128 BPM

Avicii – Wake Me Up (Avicii Speed Remix) – 126 BPM

David Guetta, Ne-Yo & Akon – Play Hard – 130 BPM

Rihanna & David Guetta – Right Now (Justin Prime Radio Edit) – 131 BPM

Pitbull & Kesha – Timber – 130 BPM

  1. I can’t believe “Roar” didn’t make the list – that’s my favorite song to run to! Maybe because it came out later in the year? I do have “Feel This Moment” on my playlist, too…that one always gets me going!

  2. Thanks for the list. :)
    I’d like to add the following as well please:
    I Gotta Feeling by BEP (128 bpm) and The Boys by Girls’ Generation.
    Have a great 2014 everyone!

  3. Nice choices..

    The Macklemore songs also work nicely as they tend to build and progress.
    Personally, I’d toss a vote in there for Arcade Fire – “Reflektor”

  4. Nice choice indeed. Updated my ipod. :-)
