Top 10 Workout Tracks For May

From Hits Daily Double:

EDM is well represented in this month’s tally, according to votes placed at fitness music site Run Hundred, with Skrillex, his ex Ellie Goulding and Calvin Harris doing their motivational best to help gym goers push their heart monitors into the red. As webmaster Chris Lawhorn notes, Ed Sheeran and Christina Perri are making their first appearances in the top 10—the former with some uncredited assistance from Pharrell Williams and the latter by way of a Passion Pit remix. Interestingly, both Shakira and Childish Gambino shave 50 BPMs off the 130 BPM modern-day standard for electronic tempos in their selections, while the Naughty Boy-Sam Smith collab brings a pop lilt to the chart.

Skrillex, “Recess” – 105 BPM
Ellie Goulding, “Beating Heart” – 128 BPM
Christina Perri, “Human (Passion Pit Remix)” – 119 BPM
Naughty Boy & Sam Smith, “La La La” – 125 BPM
Ed Sheeran, “Sing” – 121 BPM
Shakira, “Empire” – 80 BPM
Mystery Skulls, “Ghost (Solidisco Remix)” – 124 BPM
Calvin Harris, “Summer” – 128 BPM
OneRepublic, “Love Runs Out” – 121 BPM
Childish Gambino, “Sweatpants” – 80 BPM

Meanwhile, in out neck of the woods, hardly a spin class goes by without the inclusion of The Black Keys’ “Fever” (along with “Turn Blue” every now and then), KONGOS’ “Come With Me Now” (still), HAIM’s “Follow” (again), Avicii f/Audra Mae’s “Addicted to You” or Hozier’s “Take Me to Church.” (5/6a)
