When people talk about having a workout buddy, it's usually in terms of accountability. After all, it's tougher to skip a session if you know someone else is relying on you to show up. This playlist kills two birds with one stone, with songs celebrating friendship that double as workout jams.

Girl groups have a natural advantage with these kinds of songs. Master classes on camaraderie are provided below, courtesy of TLC, Fifth Harmony, and the Spice Girls. Elsewhere you'll find sing-along favorites from Taylor Swift and Club Nouveau that match catchy choruses to sweeping sentiments. Lastly, if you're looking for something with a little more bite, check out the layered epic from LCD Soundsystem or the us-versus-the-world manifesto from Kanye, Jay Z, and Big Sean.

Like a good fitness partner, a good playlist needs to be reliable. While the mix below blends a variety of genres, the emphasis remains firmly on tracks and acts that have cut through the clutter. So if you have a workout buddy already, your playlist awaits. If you've yet to reach out, perhaps these songs are all the push you need.

The day when I received the device, I load all my favorites music in it, This device built-in 8GB after I load 500 songs, there are still over 6GB memory left, I will load other lovely songs in future when I collect more. I often use this music player in two way, one is that I can plug the earphone into the earphone jack, listen to music by earphone, The other way is very cool that I strongly recommend to all of you, if your car has audio port, you could connect the music player with your car by audio cable, after that you could enjoy your favorites songs on your car.Check the products here: http://boseworkout.com
