TAPE DECK SHUFFLE-The Top 10 Workout Songs For October
By Chris Lawhorn
This month's list brings two questions to mind:
#1. For how many consecutive months will David Guetta turn up in these top 10 lists? (His new track with Usher made the cut--and he just barely missed making it again with his recent Nicki Minaj collaboration).
#2. Will Calvin Harris, Benny Benassi or Afrojack be the one that unseats him? (All three are making their second appearances on the charts this month. And, like Guetta, each has begun being billed as the artist on his tracks--rather than being credited as the producer/remixer, which was the case a couple years ago.)
This month's top 10 is rounded out by a new track from LMFAO, a Britney remix, and a song by Young The Giant--brought most folks' attention by the band's surprise inclusion on this year's MTV Video Music Awards.
Here's the full list, according to votes placed on the web's most popular work out music blog Run Hundred.
Rihanna & Calvin Harris - We Found Love - 128 BPM
Dev - In The Dark - 125 BPM
Afrojack & Eva Simons - Take Over Control - 128 BPM
LMFAO - Sexy And I Know It - 129 BPM
Chris Brown & Benny Benassi - Beautiful People - 129 BPM
Shortee & Faust - Friday Night Special - 133 BPM
Kelly Rowland & Lil Wayne - Motivation (Rebel Rock Remix) - 130 BPM
Britney Spears - I Wanna Go (Oliver Remix) - 129 BPM
Young The Giant - My Body - 130 BPM
David Guetta & Usher - Without You - 128 BPM
