The best thing about working out to pop music is also the worst thing about working out to pop music: A great hook-the one that sent a tune racing up the charts and into your fitness playlist-is often the same thing that will drive you crazy when you hear it twice an hour on the radio.

To extend the shelf life of your pop favorites and add some variety to your workout mix, consider a few up-tempo tunes worthy of a Top 40 title but that have yet to enter the gym circuit. In the list below, you'll find irresistible songs by undiscovered talents and repeat chart-toppers alike, all with so much energy they may as well have been designed for a spin class. Press play on these 10 tracks to hit the gym refreshed and ready to sweat.

Ladyhawke - Blue Eyes - 110 BPM

Band of Skulls - Asleep at the Wheel - 145 BPM

NONONO - Pumpin Blood - 121 BPM

Chela - Romanticise - 110 BPM

Friendly Fires - Skeleton Boy - 119 BPM

I bought these headphones to use on a cross-country flight for work, since I wanted a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones. I really enjoyed them, they are very comfortable, and enclose my ears completely. The noise-cancelling function works really well, it made the engine noise disappear, and I was able to enjoy the movie I was watching without turning the volume all the way up.Great headphones for the money. I would definitely recommend them. check the products HERE : http://boseworkout.com
