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.
