Spotify reveals ten most popular workout tracks

Our Solution

Ten of the most popular songs for working out to have been revealed by music streaming site Spotify, greatest.com reports. Whether out pounding the streets or taking to the garden gym, many Brits feel their workout isn't half as effective without music to keep them in the "zone". Now, Spotify has revealed the ten most popular tracks in the eyes of its users for their workouts, with Ke$ha's 'Die Young' taking the top spot. The list was compiled by including the tracks added to workout playlists from Spotify's millions of users across the world. In total, some 2.8 million such playlists were compiled, with Ke$ha appearing on more than any other artist. The song - just as with many others on the top ten - is thought to have been picked for its steady, upbeat BPM which lends itself perfectly to pace-setting. Others included in the list are K-Pop anthem 'Gangnam Style' and David Guetta smash 'Titanium'. In a statement released alongside the chart, Dr Costas Karageorghis from London's Brunel University told huffingtonpost.com: "Music and exercise make for a winning combination. "Our scientific research has demonstrated how exercisers lock into the rhythmical elements of music, which gives their workouts a significant boost. In essence, the body gradually aligns its movement patterns to the musical beat." The top ten ran as follows: (START-LIST) Ke$ha - 'Die Young' will.i.am featuring Britney Spears - 'Scream and Shout' Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - 'Thrift Shop' Swedish House Mafia - 'Don't You Worry Child' Calvin Harris - 'Sweet Nothing' Flo Rida - 'I Cry' Kanye West - 'Clique' David Guetta featuring Sia - 'Titanium' Psy - 'Gangnam Style' Bruno Mars - 'Locked Out of Heaven' (END-LIST)
